The partnership between Meze Audio and Rinaro Isodynamics continues with the launch of the new ELITE Isodynamic Hybrid Array headphones. ELITE sets new standards in headphone excellence, combining the excellent mechanical design and ergonomics of Meze Audio with the distinctive technology and acoustic engineering of Rinaro.
ELITE offers an accurate, realistic listening experience that exceeds the highest standards of the savvy audiophile by combining elite aesthetics with cutting edge technology.
Meze Audio has developed unique headphones with revolutionary design and technology that complement each other perfectly to create a pure feeling with an uncompromising philosophy inspired by a love of art and sound.
Maximum lifespan and a breathtaking appearance
The materials were chosen not only for the exciting sensory experience of their raw texture, but also for their comfort and durability: a carbon fiber headband with a real leather headrest makes it ultra-light to wear, and the deep black grill with detailed carvings gives the Elite its stunning appearance.
Developed for a lifetime
The main idea behind Meze Audio is to make products that will withstand the changes in the industry over the years and offer customers long-term value.
Elite is no exception.
From its looks to its technology, this headset is designed to outlast all fads and become a real treasure.
Elite is fully serviceable, which takes long-term sustainability to a new level: From the replacement ear pads to the high-performance materials used, every aspect of the headphone housing can be easily disassembled and serviced.
Tremendous amount of time spent on world class drivers
Each driver unit manufactured by Rinaro Isodynamics in Ukraine requires more than 100 hours of development and testing time before it is delivered to Meze Audio for final assembly of the headphones.
Two different ear pads for optimal comfort and sound quality with an innovative design
The Isomagnetic® ear pad attachment is an innovative design feature invented by Rinaro that uses the driver's demagnetizing field to hold the ear pad in place while directing the magnetic field back into the driver, improving the efficiency of the driver.
The Meze ELITE headphones designed by Rinaro come with two differently shaped ear pads that allow a specific calibration of the sound signature.
The Alcantara ear pad originally developed for the Empyrean headphones in 2018 is 30 mm deep.
HYBRID (inside made of perforated Alcantara® + outside made of real leather)
The 25 mm deep leather and Alcantara ear pads, specially developed for ELITE by Rinaro, are a new addition to the product range that combines the best of two materials.
