Meze Audio first received its true breakthrough in 2015 with the release of the well-received 99 Classics, which had earned the company many awards and recognition. Part of their appeal stemmed from budget-friendly creations that married comfort, aesthetics, and sound—something which helped to propel HiFiMAN during their early years. However, unlike the latter company, Meze Audio dove straight into the deep-end of high-fidelity territory, following entry level propositions. The latest headphones touted, the Meze Empyrean Headphones, retail for a hefty $2999, and are said to be a “game-changer” after years of passion, curiosity, and innovation.… Read the full article

I hope you’re feeling adventurous today because it’s time to explore the great outdoors of new music. As before, everything on this list is from 2019, and if I’m not mistaken, all of it is from this very month.

But Heinz Renner, the brains behind the legendary AKG K1000 ear speakers, had different ideas. He joined forces with Viennese test equipment makers LB-Acoustics where he met his friend Helmut Ryback, co-developer of the K1000, and set to work making really good headphones.… Read the full article
