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. 

“Empyrean was born from passion, curiosity, and innovation. As a business, we have allowed ourselves the freedom to experiment and take risks in search of the perfect sound. To generate something truly remarkable, one must dare to explore, and that’s what we did with Empyrean. We pushed and refined industry standards and achieved a true game-changer for audiophiles.” - Antonio Meze, Lead Designer, and Founder of Meze Audio

Hybrid Array Advantages

Combines two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm delivering more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear.
ACCURATE REPRODUCTION
Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range

 

LIGHTWEIGHT
Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions

 

ERGONOMIC SHAPE
Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area

 

ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO
The 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
World's first in planar magnetic headphones
The Empyrean Driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils, their unique shapes allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear. This unique combination generates an increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range and improves imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections.
Hand Assembled & Fully Serviceable

We carefully hand assemble each headphone in our facilities in Baia Mare, Romania. A core belief of Meze is to create products that last. The Empyrean is no different: from the replaceable earpads to the high-performance materials used, every part on the headphone chassis is available to be serviced and disassembled by our skilled team.
