We sometimes have those moments where we’re listening to music while looking out a window, feeling that tension between wanting to stay inside with the music and wanting to go outside to feel the wind in our thinning hair. To go out there or stay in here? That’s the question. Inside has a lot going for it. It’s where the planar magnetics are. It’s where our fancy desktop rigs are. And most importantly, it’s where we won’t get a sunburn on our really very rapidly-thinning scalps. Inside!
And yet, what if someone made a planar magnetic headphone that was portable, closed-back, and also a hat? Well, Meze has created a headphone that accomplishes two of those things. (It’s been brought to my attention that the accompanying carrying case could be worn as a hat, but we haven't tested this claim.) Meze has teamed up with Rinaro Isodynamics again to create the all-new LIRIC, a portable, closed-back, planar magnetic headphone that meets all the requirements to get audiophiles outdoors.
