Refined electrodynamic driver with UPM balanced piston membrane motion, encased in durable and ergonomic sintered steel shell.
POWER OF PURE MUSIC
Rai Solo has been born from our vision to offer
entry-level audiophiles a solid built and great value IEM.
Ergonomic design, sturdy stainless-steel shell, refined dynamic driver,
all for one purpose: enchanting your senses through a pure listening experience.
In developing the Rai Solo, we looked for a fun but well refined and controlled sound signature.
The frequency response is slightly V-shaped but we consider it to be Fun-neutral.
The strongest correlation between the Rai Solo and the Rai Penta is the similar shape of the IEM.
The use of Metal Injection Moulding technology for the body of the Solo
made it possible to have a very complex inner shape made in mass production with great accuracy.
"Rai Solo has been at the origin of the entire Rai IEM family so it shares a lot of design philosophy DNA with the flagship Rai Penta. It was supposed to be released ahead of Rai Penta but we took our time to perfect it for mass production. The result is a high value, yet still affordable, IEM."
UNIFIED PISTONIC MOTION TECHNOLOGY EXCLUSIVE DRIVER
Wire free diaphragm performing in a symmetric pistonic motion without disturbance from wires.
TRADITIONAL DRIVER MEMBRANE
In a traditional electro-dynamic driver the voice coil lead wires are glued to the back side of the thin membrane.
This is the major factor of the unbalanced vibration.
WIRE FREE UPM DESIGN
The new UPM driver eliminates this inconvenience using a totally different approach: the membrane itself is electrically conductive and therefore no wires are attached to the diaphragm. The result is a symmetric pistonic motion through its entire movement, without disturbance from the unbalance created by wires.
Low total harmonic distortion
Outstanding reproduction of low frequencies
VIBRATION REDUCTION SYSTEM
Stainless steel is an extremely rigid material, has low resonance and therefore delivers minimum interference to the vibration created by the driver unit. In terms of audio performance, these advantages contribute to a clean and dark background with well-defined imaging.
The specially conceived shell architecture in conjunction with the steel chassis dampen vibration from the driver unit.
METAL INJECTION MOULDING BODY
Anatomic design and highly durable housing for long listening sessions and extended product life.
The surface is raw Stainless Steel individually hand brushed by craftsmen.
DETACHABLE MMCX 1.3M SILVER PLATED CABLE
Industry standard MMCX sockets which makes the cables detachable and replaceable at any time.
Nozzle color coding: right is red and left is blue
The confier the IEM the better listening experience, this is a fact. Serious audiophile will spend hours on end engaged in their music.
We have designed the RAI series In Ear Monitors to deliver comfort and prolonged listening sessions allowing for a truly immersive experience for you and your music.
Attention to details to an extreme: round, soft edges designed to embrace the natural curves from one's ear and to fit perfectly.
Ergonomics at its best. Pure comfort. Feeling of airness and seamless fit.
DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED
IN BAIA MARE, ROMANIA
The RAI series designs are grounded in the realities of everyday life.
Our aim is for anyone to find valid options when looking for an IEM to fit their lifestyle.
Solo is opening the RAI family, as an entry-level audiophile IEM born from our pledge of honest design and true audio.
The Rai Penta work effortlessly with any device due to its low impedance and high sensitivity but to truly enjoy the full potential and advantages of its special driver we recommend the use of a DAP or a DAC if you want to use your phone as a source.

Meze Rai Solo Electrodynamic IEMs
Sounds good on some things and average on others.
Cheapaudioman on YouTube really said it best; these IEM's need time to open up. The great debate of "burn-in", well in this circumstance it is absolutely necessary. When I first got them, they were muffled and rather unpleasant to listen to. I thought here goes another impulse IEM buy into the yard sale bucket. I let them play overnight and they began to open up. I could texture in the music and the sound stage was surprisingly wide and deep for an IEM, let alone an IEM at this price! They definitely benefit from some additional power; Chord Mojo, a Periodic Audio Rhodium and an RME ADI-2 DAC all made them sound all the better. After some time, I started hearing nuanced guitar riffs, cymbal sizzle, breaths before sax and brass notes out in the periphery of songs. They are beautifully made for an IEM at any price point and quite comfortable for long listening sessions. Jazz, Rock, Ambient, R&B, Soul, and Electronic all sounded fantastic(AFTER burn in). The Meze Rai Solo's drew me into the music and kept me there; enjoying every note. And in the end, isn't that why we buy audio gear, to enjoy music? Thank you Audio46 for lightning quick shipping and competitive pricing!
Great sound for the price. Warm sound and good definition. I have a Dragonfly red which improves sound dramatically. These buds are all most people need if listening from a phone or I Pad but invest in decent headphone amp to get the best sound
Awesome sound, cord tangles. Excellent service and delivery from Audio46.
My overall experience with Meze-Rai Solo, Electrodynamic IEMs has been accepttionel. Compared the the previous pair of Audio Technica earbuds. These are very comfortable to wear and I truly appreciate the free floating diaphragm. The sound is full and "for me" they offer a great Soundstage. I personally feel that the solid stainless steel body enriches thier performance. For the the price point they exceed my expectations. Of course each person hears sound differently. For those who mostly listen to music on their "cell phones" will not have the same experience as when listening from an MP 3 player, that delivers a more complete processor. I would definitely recommend these Meze earbuds to those looking to enjoy they're music with precision. Lastly, the memory wire that wraps around the ear helps them fit to the individual comfortably. After breaking them in, I found myself listening to music for almost 2 hours and loved every minute. Thank you Audio 64 and Meze for delivering such value. E. A.
