A TIMELESS STATEMENT OF HI-FI
A blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship and detailing that’s unmistakably Meze, Empyrean is one of the most technologically innovative planar magnetic headphones in the world.
Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies coming together to explore what is possible beyond their individual capabilities. The result is a no-compromise headphone embodying Meze’s daring aesthetic and user-centered design approach and Rinaro’s experience in research and development within the field of planar magnetics.
ARCHITECTURE OF THE ISODYNAMIC® HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER
Fiberglass infused ABS
- RINARO ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM
Weighing only 0.16 g while having 4650 mm² of active area.
- HYBRID MAGNET ARRAY
Symmetrically placed on each side of the diaphragm, our neodymium magnets are specifically arranged into a Hybrid Array to create efficient Isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface.
HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER ADVANTAGES
Combines two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm delivering more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear.
- ACCURATE REPRODUCTION
Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range
Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions
- ERGONOMIC SHAPE
Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area
- ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO
Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz
- ULTRA EFFICIENT
100db@1mw/1kHz High performance without needing amplification
- PATENT PENDING ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER
World's first in planar magnetic headphones
AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM
One of the problems with conventional planar magnetic arrays is coming from reflected signals entering the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging.
Combining different voice coil configurations makes it possible to create a better sound intensity distribution across the sound wavefront at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal.
AN ERGONOMIC APPROACH LEADS TO A NEW WAY OF THINKING
To create an audiophile headphone that is powerful yet light the driver needed to maximize power output while reducing weight as much as possible.
Weight was minimized by optimizing a magnet structure around an ovoid shape that fits the ear more closely. Power output was increased through the use of a completely bespoke coil and magnet array design that optimized the active usable area of the driver within its ovoid shape.
