Combining a unique design with advanced engineering, the Elite Aluminium headphones provide an accurate, lifelike audio experience for audiophiles. Meze Audio has been making headphones and earphones for 10 years with a focus on timeless aesthetics, maximum comfort, and vivid sound. Crafted with durable materials like aluminum, carbon fiber, and leather, the Elite features a patent-pending suspension wings support system for even weight distribution and an ultra-light feel for maximum comfort. This long-lasting headphone is the perfect choice for those seeking a high-quality, one-of-a-kind audio experience.
The process of making a single aluminum skeleton takes about 20 hours. To that, we add days of inspecting each part of the headphone, assembling the parts, and ensuring the final product rises to our high standards. This can’t be achieved through mass-production, meaning delivery times can be longer, but we guarantee it’s worth it.
ELITE is hand-assembled with care and painstaking attention to detail in Baia Mare, Romania.
With a custom, newly designed driver, created by Rinaro Isodynamic, ELITE is the result of 3 years of research and development through which we strived to create a powerful, lifelike, and immersive experience that awakens the senses of the listener.
ULTRA LOW DISTORTION Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.05% in the whole frequency range.
LIGHTWEIGHT A 75g combined driver weight was designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions.
ULTRA HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO The upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 112,000 Hz.
RINARO PARUS® DIAPHRAGM An innovative low-mass acoustic diaphragm constructed on an ultrathin biaxially oriented semi-crystalline film.
EASY TO DRIVE 101db@1mw/1kHz; 32Ohm; can be driven by almost any source without the need for amplification.
The patent-pending Isodynamic Hybrid Array technology of the MZ3SE driver is one of the most sophisticated planar magnetic techs available. Building on the groundbreaking technology of the Empyrean's MZ3 driver, it creates a selective acoustic response, granting higher resolution and accuracy of sound reproduction. Improved diaphragm materials open doors to a superior level of headphone design.
CASING Reinforced polymer housing is designed to withstand the demanding 12,7N load generated by the hybrid magnet array.
RINARO PARUS® DIAPHRAGM Weighing only 0.11g with a large active area of 4650 mm2.
HYBRID MAGNET ARRAY
The ELITE driver features Rinaro Parus®, an ultra-thin biaxially oriented semi-crystalline polymer film diaphragm. Magnets are symmetrically placed to create a 0.35 Tesla Isodynamic magnetic field, enabling uniform activation across the diaphragm. With this Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver technology, sound waves are more accurately targeted, resulting in natural sound transparency and a wide, articulate soundstage. The improved definition and speed is due to biaxial lengthening technology, in which the polymer is stretched at high temperatures to create a complex semi-crystalline microstructure with remarkable strength, stiffness, and stability, along with an extremely low acoustic mass.
