Meze Announces Empyrean II

Meze has once again teamed up with Rinaro Isodynamics to develop the next Empyrean. The Empyrean II is the latest pair of planar open-back headphones from Meze. Built off the foundation of the original Empyrean, the Empyrean II looks to further Meze’s pursuit of audio perfection. With this new generation, Meze looks to further improve their Isodynamic hybrid array driver.

They have also given the Empyrean new Duo ear pads intended for different genres. Crafted from a precise blend of premium leather and Alcantara, they introduce a contemporary look and tone. With leather forming the base half and Alcantara covering the rest, these earpads deliver a harmonious tonal balance that resonates across all music genres.


A symphony of form and texture, Empyrean II is an experience for the senses.

Crafted with precision via CNC milling, Empyrean II’s aluminum frame features a sleek black matte finish, and a redesigned grill, that draws inspiration from the bold and timeless art deco patterns.

In the center of the all-black frame, a silver accent casts a radiant glow.
