Empyrean is the result of a Meze Audio collaboration with Rinaro, creating a new standard in planar magnetic audio. Thirty-plus years of research and development have led to this; the creation of the first Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver.

This technology delivers one of the lightest and most advanced planar magnetic drivers currently available. Two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm deliver more selective acoustic performance to different parts of the human ear – and it sounds amazing!

Description

Empyrean

Featuring an amazing blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship and detailing, Empyrean is one of the most technologically innovative planar magnetic headphones in the world.

Symmetrically placed on each side of the diaphragm, several neodymium magnets are specifically arranged into a hybrid array to create an efficient isodynamic magnetic field, which is required for uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface.

The Empyrean driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils, their unique shapes allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear.

This unique combination generates an increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range, and improves both imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections.

Antonio Meze, the lead designer and founder of Meze Audio, says:

"Empyrean was born from passion, curiosity and innovation. As a business, we (Meze Audio) have allowed ourselves the freedom to experiment and take risks in search of the perfect sound. To generate something truly remarkable, one must dare to explore, and that’s what we did with Empyrean. We pushed and refined industry’ standards and achieved a true game changer for audiophiles."
