A blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship and detailing that’s unmistakably  Meze, Empyrean is one of the most technologically innovative planar magnetic headphones in the world.

 

 

HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER ADVANTAGES

 

Combines two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm delivering more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear.

 

 

ACCURATE REPRODUCTION

Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range

 

LIGHTWEIGHT 

Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions 

 

ERGONOMIC SHAPE

 Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area

 

ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO

Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz

 

ULTRA EFFICIENT 

100db@1mw/1kHz High performance without needing amplification

 

PATENT PENDING ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER 

World's first in planar magnetic headphones

 

 

AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM

 

One of the problems with conventional planar magnetic arrays is coming from reflected signals entering the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging.
Combining different voice coil configurations makes it possible to create a better sound intensity distribution across the sound wavefront at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal.

 

ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM MATERIAL 

The diaphragm is manufactured from a custom developed isotropic thermally stabilized polymer with a conductive layer. Through unique processing methods, an ultralight yet rigid diaphragm has been achieved.  

 

SWITCHBACK COIL 

The switchback coil is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies and is positioned in the upper part of the driver.

 

SPIRAL COIL 

The spiral coil is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies and is positioned directly over the ear canal enabling more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delays.

To create an audiophile headphone that is powerful yet light the driver needed to maximize power output while reducing weight as much as possible.

Weight was minimized by optimizing a magnet structure around an ovoid shape that fits the ear more closely. Power output was increased through the use of a completely bespoke coil and magnet array design that optimized the active usable area of the driver within its ovoid shape.
