Meze Audio is a company dedicated to bringing a superb audio experience for the most demanding audiophiles. The company is specialized in headphones and earphones that offer superb quality along with unmatched design, like the ones we are presenting today, the Meze 99 Classics. Their products look incredible, are meant to last, and offer vintage looks backed up with magnificent specs along with the rich package.
The Meze 99 Classics, is a pair of headphones that will bring a much-needed touch of luxury into your life while not asking for thousands of dollars for the entry ticket. They were successfully funded on IndieGoGo, and are now available to all.
The headphones themselves look like Meze’s designers traveled into the past to the golden age of music, the 60’s, asked some of the famous musicians from the era about how they imagine perfect headphones should look like and then got back to the present day and decided to pick the best answers, and then go on and design the Meze 99 Classics.
The ear cups are made from real walnut wood, giving a touch of luxury usually found inside the most lavish Bentley, Aston Martin, and Rolls-Royce models. Also, walnut wood gives more balanced sound than other woods, and if you’re an audiophile you know how a small difference can have a huge impact when listening to music.
Since wood grain is unique, you won’t find two of the same, each pair of Meze 99 Classics is unique, one of a kind. Only natural materials are used, making the headphones to stand out from the competition and to please your senses each time you wear them. Ear pads are made out of soft PU leather and filled with memory foam so that they can perfectly adjust to every ear.
The headphones offer a superb audio quality, with large, 40mm transducers, 15Hz – 25KHz frequency response, an impedance of 32 Ohm, and the sensitivity of 103dB at 1KHz, 1mW. Even when using humble audio equipment the headphones will make a difference, making each song an aural bliss, and giving your ears a present they deserve, especially if they’re used to quality headphones.
The headphones weigh in at just 260 grams, making them surprisingly light, and the comfortable, self-adjusting headband won’t make you tired even after wearing the headphones for many hours each and every day.
On the one hand we have a relatively expensive and luxurious product that will really make a difference when listening to music, but on the other hand that doesn’t mean the headphones are made in a way that makes any kind of repairs next to impossible. The Meze 99 Classics can be taken apart completely since only screws are used in the build of the headphones. This means they will be a part of your life for a long, long time.
The package is very rich; hard EVA carrying pouch along with two detachable cables (one 1.2 m with Mic and one 3 m Kevlar), and 3.5 mm gold plated plugs. What are you waiting for, grab one of these babies right now!
