Following 10 years of headphone innovation in the HiFi and portable audio sector, Romanian company Meze Audio present a brand new addition to their high-end listening range, designed and built in partnership with long-term Ukrainian collaborators Rinaro Isodynamics.
“With ELITE, we've created something that transcends all barriers of headphone design and engineering and moves to a new, artistic, graceful level. Following in the footsteps of a successful partnership, together with Rinaro Isodynamics we managed to exceed our expectations once again and create something for the ages. It’s not mass production; it’s the craftsmanship that sparks the magic and wonder in ELITE, what makes it exciting, and these are values that we choose over any shortcuts.”
– Antonio Meze, Founder (Meze Audio)
Over the past decade Meze Audio have earned a well deserved reputation for excelling in headphone design with a variety of models from affordable in-ears to game-changing planar magnetics. Antonio Meze's team in Baia, Romania maintain a no-compromise philosophy to deliver engaging, vivid sound assisted by pure comfort in every headphone they produce.
With the introduction of Empyrean in 2018 Meze revealed a fruitful collaboration with Rinaro Isodynamics, a driver manufacturer originating from the USSR and initially state-funded to specifically research planar magnetic technology. Rinaro were able to maintain focus and innovation long beyond the cold war and now boast more than thirty years of experience in the field.
A New Benchmark of Acoustic Performance
Continuing their collaboration since the hugely successful launch of the Empyrean, Meze and Rinaro are delighted to introduce a new luxury headphone model which combines Meze's well-known aesthetic with state-of-the-art engineering to create a powerful and immersive listening experience.
