Meze Empyrean II

The 2. Generation of a legend

Empyrean II drawing

 “When we first talked about developing the second generation of Empyrean, I knew it would be anything but easy. With many ideas in mind, I reached out to our community and was eager to get their feedback in any way I could. I wanted to delve into their hearts and minds to understand their expectations, and so their input shaped the path to Empyrean II. What followed was a test of patience and precision. At first the possibilities seemed endless, but reality showed us that few of our plans were feasible. We made many revisions to find the right proportions and materials that would deliver the sound signature we were aiming for."

Meze Audio Empyrean II Review — Headfonics


"With the Empyrean 2, Meze Audio is walking into a new direction. In this new tuning, neutrality, clarity, speed and spaciousness are keywords. Gone are characteristics such as warmth, body and lushness. The Empyrean 2 is very different from the original as well as their ELITE headphones. The Meze Audio Empyrean 2 is a new recommended buy"

Meze Audio Empyrean 2 Review - Headfonia Reviews


Artsmanship meets craftsmanship

Beautiful in both form and texture, the Empyrean II is an experience for the senses. The Empyrean II is a natural step forward from Meze's first planar magnetic headphones, retaining all the beloved elements of its iconic predecessor, with an added touch of sonic and sculptural elegance.

The Empyrean II's CNC-machined aluminum frame features a sleek matte black finish and a redesigned grille inspired by the bold and timeless Art Deco patterns. In the middle of the all-black frame, a silver accent provides a radiant glow.


"As good as the original design looked, the headphones we thought were final turned out to be fragile. The aluminum grille turned out to be not so good, there was an unexpected structural failure, and we changed colors almost daily, struggling to find the perfect combination. With a lot of determination and a few more iterations, we finally made it - Empyrean II".

Vladimir Brezovszki, product designer

Meze x Rinaro

Empyrean II is the result of the fruitful collaboration between two passionate companies that set out to break new ground. Meze's engineering team has masterfully harnessed the power of Rinaro's biodynamic hybrid array driver to achieve a new world of sound.

A sonic masterpiece reinterpreted

For the second generation model, Meze Audio specialists have further refined the exceptional design of Rinaro Isodynamics' Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver to achieve even better performance.

The aim was to improve the headphones' ability to reproduce fine details and achieve a more neutral sound signature, while maintaining the "easy to listen to" character of the original Empyrean. Using sophisticated tuning methods, the Meze team was able to reveal new possibilities in terms of resolution and detail reproduction, achieving cleaner and more precise reproduction of audio data.

Unlimited comfort

Empyrean II

With Empyrean II, your music takes center stage. Conforming to Meze's highest standard of comfort, the Empyrean II instantly adapts to the shape of your head thanks to its specially designed structure that minimizes weight and pressure. This highly acclaimed synergy of ergonomics and high-quality materials not only guarantees exceptional sound, but also allows you to enjoy uninterrupted music without discomfort.

Your sound, your choice

Empyrean II comes with two sets of ear pads that provide the ultimate sound customization: Duo and Angled Alcantara:

Crafted from a precise blend of high-quality leather and Alcantara, the Duo ear pads give the distinctive sound profile of the Empyrean II a modern dimension. With leather forming the bottom half and Alcantara covering the rest, these ear pads deliver a harmonious balance of sound that resonates well in all genres of music.

The angled ear cushions made of soft Alcantara-coated foam and a fine protective mesh on the grille are ideal for reproducing fine details and nuances in your recordings. The angled shape creates more space inside the ear cushion, resulting in an airier sound signature with clearer bass and improved mid-frequency presence.


Rinaro's Isomagnetic® coupling technology makes changing ear pads a breeze. It uses the degaussing field created by the driver to hold the earpiece in place while also redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver, increasing efficiency.


Empyrean II

Total harmonic distortion (THD) is less than 0.05% across the entire frequency range.

Reduced weight of the drivers for a headphone that can be worn during longer listening sessions

Anatomically shaped driver structure

Upper frequency limit of audio playback is 110.000Hz


Empyrean II

The neodymium magnets arranged symmetrically on each side of the membrane are specially arranged in a hybrid array to create the efficient isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform Activation over the entire membrane surface is required.

Weighs only 0.16 g and has an active area of ​​4650 mm2.

Glass fiber reinforced ABS.


The diaphragm reversing coil is more efficient at reproducing low frequencies and is located in the upper part of the driver.

The spiral coil of the membrane is more efficient at reproducing medium and high frequencies and is located directly above the ear canal, so that the sound waves enter the ear canal more directly and without time delay can penetrate the ear.
