Meet the Meze Empyrean II Open Back Headphones

Explore the Next Evolution of the Art Deco-Inspired Meze Empyrean II

Introducing the Meze Empyrean II—a headphone where innovation meets meticulous craftsmanship. This sequel to the legendary Empyrean preserves the essence of its predecessor while carving out its niche in acoustic performance and comfort. With the Empyrean II, Meze Audio and Rinaro Isodynamics propel the passion for pure sound into a new era.

A Convergence of Technology and Design

Isodynamic® Hybrid Array Driver—A Sonic Leap Forward

At the heart of the Empyrean II lies the Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver, a testament to the collaboration between Meze Audio and Rinaro Isodynamics. The enhanced driver design serves as a sophisticated instrument, delicately balancing neodymium magnets and optimizing diaphragm symmetry. This ensures aurally precise sound waves, promising an authentic reproduction of your music.

Redefining Sonic Precision

Striving beyond the standards of typical audio resolution, the Empyrean II's refined driver meticulously captures the subtleties of music. The focus on a more neutral sound signature means every detail is presented with crystal clarity, without compromising the warm and inviting sound that listeners have come to appreciate from Meze Audio.

Elegance & Ergonomics

Art Deco Elegance

The headphones' chassis, chiseled through CNC milling, brandishes an aluminum frame cloaked in a sophisticated black matte finish. A striking silver accent within the frame complements the redesigned grill, echoing timeless art deco aesthetics.

Revolutionary Isomagnetic® Coupling Technology

Swapping earpads is effortless thanks to Rinaro’s Isomagnetic® technology. This innovation not only simplifies maintenance but also redirects the magnetic field back into the driver to increase efficiency.

Comfort Tailored to You

The Empyrean II is engineered for unparalleled comfort. Its structure is designed to distribute weight and reduce pressure, allowing the headphones to conform gracefully to the contour of your head for uninterrupted musical indulgence.

Craftsmanship That Speaks
