    Honest Design - How the Meze 99 Classics evolved

    It’s been two years since Meze Audio released the already iconic Meze 99 Classics. Our goal? To reach a sort of listening experience that would open gates for the newcomer audio enthusiasts, to introduce more people to the world of audiophilia through a premium headphone at a decent cost. But most of all, it was to create a headphone with soul.So how does a headphone get a “soul”? Below, we’ll discuss the particularities of the design process of the Meze 99 Classics. How a...

  • Wishblindness


    Wanting something feels coherent, but it’s anything like that: it is dynamic, messy, comes bundled with hundreds of other implicit desires.

    Implicit and invisible

    Individuals and small startups are usually held to be lagging behind when it comes to the research resources that big companies enjoy. However, this disparity is greatly diminished in the domains that emphasize creativity, where one single novel idea is often enough to make a difference. No matter how big and rich a company you are, you just cannot plan in advance for a steady flow of innovation.At Meze, as in most small companies, the information flows seamlessly between...
