Meze Audio - ELITE


“The best just got better”

Product Enquiry

With the continued pursuit of excellence, and building on the award wining Empyrean, comes the Meze ELITE.

Combining an exclusive aesthetic with state of the art engineering the ELITE delivers an accurate and authentic listening experience equipped to meet the highest expectations of the listener.

Rinaro Isodynamics:

ELITE is the product of a continued partnership with Ukrainian planar magnetic driver manufacturer Rinaro Isodynamics. Each ELITE model features a newly designed MZ3SE hybrid array driver featuring Rinario’s trademarked Parus diaphragm material.

Parus is unique polymer film strengthened by a semi-crystalline microstructure. When harnessed within a Rinaro driver, the material exhibits remarkable traits of stiffness and stability, producing a natural sound transparency along with a wide and articulate soundstage.

Dual Coil Technology:

ELITE utilises two separate coil technologies, switchback for lower frequencies and spiral for mid and upper frequencies. This specific configuration enables improved frequency targeting for individual parts of the aural canal, presenting a clearer soundstage and superior balance.

Personalise your sound:

Each ELITE headphone ships with two distinct ear pad options which attach to the earcup assembly purely through the demagnetised field of the hybrid array drivers. 30mm Alacantara pads are supplied for an experience similar to suede, along with a newly developed 25mm ‘hybrid’ pads for real leather feel as well as the internal flexibility of Alacantara.
