Meze Rai Solo Announced with cable

The new earphone marries Meze’s reputation for quality audio with an affordable price point.  And, while the difference in price might seem staggering to some, clear similarities between the Solo and its progenitor exist.

Utilizing the same ergonomic housing, the Solo appears to sport the same overall dimensions.  It also uses the same detachable MMCX connection found on the Meze Rai Penta, with a 1.3 m silver-plated cable included in the box.

That cable (as well as each earpiece nozzle) features color-coding for left and right channels.  As a result, the Meze Rai Solo appears visually arresting, but also easily identifies when in a rush.

Build-wise, each housing uses a stainless steel metal injection process to provide a rugged shell that won’t quit.  Inside each housing, a single 9.2 mm UPM dynamic driver dishes out sound.

In addition to the included cable, the earphone also comes accompanied by eartips and a carrying case.

The Meze Rai Solo retails for an affordable $249 from Meze and select authorized retailers.
