Meze Empyrean


A blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship and detailing that’s unmistakably Meze,

Empyrean is one of the most technologically innovative planar magnetic headphones in the world.


The Empyean was born from passion, curiosity and innovation. And because we believe we’re together, you and I, in this quest for perfection: ideal sound, ideal fit, ideal feel.

The Empyrean is an elite limited edition headphone, as unique as you are. Crafted to perfection and hand assembled, only 500 pieces will be made available worldwide.

Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies coming together to explore what is possible beyond their individual capabilities.

The result is a no compromise headphone embodying the Meze Audio daring aesthetic and user-centered design approach and Rinaro’s experience in research and development within the field of planar magnetics.


Rinaro is a progressive audio company with over 30 years of research and development experience in the field of planar magnetics and Isodynamics combining high quality materials & refined design to deliver unrivalled clarity and detail of sound. Their story started out in 1972 with the development of the revolutionary range of TDS Orthodynamic headphones. Since then, Rinaro has been continuously exploring, in the pursuit of ultra high resolution audio.

Sound Technology

The beating heart of the Empyrean is the driver

Rinaro have collaborated with Meze to create a new standard in planar magnetic audio,

the resulting technology being one of the lightest and most advance planar magnetic drivers on the market.

MZ3 - the Empyrean Isodynamic Hybrid Array is the first dual coil driver array to be seen in the field of planar magnetic headphones. The MZ3 combines individual switchback and spiral shaped voice coils in the one driver, their individual unique benefits allowing sound to be targeted with accuracy around the natural shape of the ear. This provides increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range and improves imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of short wave time delays caused by diffused field reflections.

Higher efficiency through weight reduction is key to enabling longer listening sessions without increased discomfort. This has been achieved by maximizing active driver surface area while keeping the weight down to just 67g per driver. The result is an ultra efficient driver that punches above its weight, putting user-comfort at the same level of priority as audio performance.

ACCURATE REPRODUCTION Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range

LIGHTWEIGHT 67g combined driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions

ERGONOMIC SHAPE Ergonomically shaped driver structure with increased active area

ULTRA HIGH RESOLUTION AUDIO Upper frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz

ULTRA EFFICIENT 100db@1mw/1kHz High performance without needing amplification

PATENT PENDING ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER A worlds first in planar magnetic headphones
