[ Redefining tone restoration - Empyrean II 
In the short time since Meze Audio first launched the flat-unit Empyrean headphones, they have received unanimous praise from the industry and market in terms of sound performance, wearing comfort, and appearance and design. The team has never stopped pursuing product performance. The recent launch of the new Empyrean II represents the team’s experience in sound restoration over the past few years, redefining the world of 8 ~ 110,000 Hz.

Empyrean II headphones, based on the reputation of the original Empyrean, further improved Rinaro Isodynamics' excellent isodynamic hybrid array unit design, re-examined the acoustic system and wearing experience, and developed a new design from the inside out, including The headphones have specially developed Duo ear pads and a protective case first seen on the Elite Tungsten.

Mircea Fanatan, General Manager of Meze Audio
“When developing the Empyrean II, we clearly aimed to enhance the earphone’s ability to reproduce fine details and achieve a more neutral sound signature while retaining the original ‘easy listening’ characteristics. With this in mind, our engineers cleverly leveraged the power of the unit to demonstrate new possibilities in terms of responsiveness and accuracy, allowing the unit to perform more reliably in challenging acoustic architectures. "

  • The exterior color scheme and grille shape have been redesigned to help the unit perform better .
  • Newly developed Duo ear pads for Empyrean II, providing harmonious tonal balance.
  • Using dynamic hybrid array flat-panel units such as the Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver, the MZ3 hybrid magnet array accurately restores sound .
  • The Isomagnetic® ear pad system makes it easy for users to replace the ear pads while improving sound performance .
  • Following the ergonomic design, the weight of Empyrean II 385g is evenly distributed in different positions of the head .
  • Made in Romania.

Where art meets craftsmanship
The Empyrean II’s frame structure is entirely crafted through CNC milling, and features a stylish matte black finish with silver accents, as well as a redesigned grille inspired by bold and timeless Art Deco patterns. In addition to being full of artistic flavor, it is also helpful in changing the air flow and unit performance. Of course, wearing experience and sound restoration are still top priority.


Isomagnetic earcup-to-earcup coupling technology
The Isomagnetic® ear pad system in Empyrean II makes switching ear pads a breeze: the magnetic field generated by the unit is fixed in a specific position through the ear pads, while a patented ferromagnetic plate guides the magnetic field back to the unit to In addition to improving efficiency, the output is increased by 12% (about 1dB), and the stray magnetic field affecting the listener can be reduced by 95%.


Isodynamic hybrid array unit architecture

The patented technology of isodynamic hybrid array driver combines individual Z-shaped and spiral voice coils into one sound unit. The spiral coil design can reproduce mid-to-high frequencies more effectively and is located directly above the ear canal, allowing more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delay, improving the three-dimensional sense and spatial positioning of the sound.

Through the [MZ3] Hybrid Magnet Array, neodymium magnets are placed symmetrically on each side of the diaphragm, specifically arranged in the hybrid array to create the required The high-efficiency isodynamic magnetic field, combined with the RINARO ISOPLANAR diaphragm that weighs only 0.16g and has an effective area of ​​4650mm2, enables sound to be more accurately aimed at the shape of the ear and diffused. Accurately restored, the total harmonic distortion (THD) measurement value in the entire frequency range is less than 0.1%, and the upper limit of the frequency response is also pushed up to 110,000Hz, ultra-high-resolution audio is instantly restored.


New Duo earpads bring a customized experience
The Empyrean II also comes with two sets of ear pads, each designed for a different experience. The new Duo earpads are the most advanced earpads in the Empyrean series to date, and are specially customized for the Empyrean II. Made from a precise blend of premium leather and Alcantara for a modern look and tone. The bottom half of the ear pads are designed with leather, which brings good sustained low-frequency performance, while the rest of the ear pads are made of Alcantara, which provides a harmonious tonal balance that resonates in the music.

For a better listening experience, the angled Alcantara soft foam ear pads excel at bringing out the intricate details and nuances in your recordings. The angular shape creates more space inside the ear pads, resulting in a more transparent sound signature, clearer bass and improved mid-range performance. By switching between Duo ear pads and angled ear pads, you can choose a listening journey that is entirely your own.


MEZE X RINARO
If you have paid attention to Meze Audio products, or have been supporting users, you will know that the soul of headphones: the unit and driver technology have always been developed with Rinaro, a company that works closely together. The team cleverly uses isodynamic mixing and arrays The powerful functions of the driver create a new world of sound.

Excellent ergonomic design
Giving users a comfortable wearing feeling is their first impression of headphones, so just like previous Meze products, Empyrean II also retains the excellent ergonomic design and adds the features of a headset. Specially designed, the frame is refined through CNC milling with a redesigned aluminum grille inspired by Art Deco, plus specially developed ear pads, which greatly enhances the wearing feel.

The weight of the entire Empyrean II is distributed quite evenly. Even though it looks large on the outside, once it is worn on the head, its existence will become almost invisible. Everything depends on the development team's ergonomic design and data to develop an excellent suspension system while reducing the weight of the driver unit. The synergy from the headband to the ear pads and even the headphone materials not only ensures excellent sound quality, but also comfort. of the highest standards.
