An Elite History

Originally released in Autumn of 2021, Meze’s hugely successful flagship – the ELITE headphone – is an open-back circumaural headphone powered by isodynamic hybrid array drivers built by long-time Meze collaborators RINARO.

Asides from their formidable driver array, ELITE includes a number of additional technical innovations designed to assist performance and, crucially, comfort during longer listening periods. The ELITE carbon fibre headband is twinned with unique pressure distribution wings (also found on Empyrean models) for ultimate support, while ELITE’s revolutionary iso-magnetic ear pads feature an anthropometric ear cup shape for a groundbreaking sense of audio isolation.
