PATIENCE MAKES PERFECT
The process of making a single aluminum frame takes about 20 hours. To that, we add days of inspecting each part of the headphone, assembling the parts and making sure the final product rises up to our high standards. This can’t be achieved through mass-production and that means delivery times can be longer, but we guarantee it’s worth it.
LIGHTWEIGHT
75g combined driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions.
EASY TO DRIVE
101db@1mw/1kHz; 32Ohm; can be driven by almost any source without the need for amplification.
FREQUENCY RESPONSE
3-112,000 Hz
DRIVER TYPE
Rinaro Isodynamic Hybrid Array®
WEIGHT
~430 g

Expert Insight

Line Circle

The Meze Audio Elite is a step up but a step up in a very competitive high-end headphone market right now. Thankfully it has a unique sound signature that is I think many will embrace. Both portable and desktop audiophiles are included in that statement which is rare for flagship planars.

"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.”
