Combining an exclusive aesthetic with state-of-the-art engineering, ELITE delivers an accurate, authentic listening experience ready to meet the highest expectations of the proficient audiophile.
"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.”
Lead Designer and Founder of Meze Audio
- A deep black grill with intricate carvings completes the look, turning ELITE into a futuristic take on personal audio design.
- Take a closer look to discover the highly complex geometrical imprint accentuated through the silver finish of the CNC aluminum frame.
- Materials were chosen not just for the exciting sensory experience their raw texture provides, but also for comfort and durability.
- A carbon fibre headband with a real leather headrest were added to the frame, for an ultra-light feel and maximum durability.
