Combining exceptional aesthetic and engineering, ELITE delivers an accurate, authentic listening experience to satisfy even the most proficient audiophiles.

Passion Brought Us Here. Technology Made it Happen.

At Meze Audio, we aim to transform each listening session into a multi-sensory experience you can get lost in. With a “no-compromise” mindset, driven by our love for art and sound, we use innovative designs and technologies that perfectly complete each other to create pure emotion.

Beautiful Aesthetics, Tailored for Long Listening Sessions

A core belief of Meze Audio is to create products that last through years and years of industry changes, bringing long-lasting value to the customer. Elite is no different. From looks to technology, this headphone was designed to surpass all short-living trends and become a true heirloom.

Tungsten-Inspired Resilience

Naturally found on various mineral deposits, tungsten ore becomes one of the toughest metals on earth, when processed. The color we chose for this headphone is similar to what tungsten looks in its final form, and we chose it as a visual metaphor for our commitment to making things that are reliable, things that last well through the years. We achieved this stone-like texture by coating each piece of the frame with Cerakote™, one of the best types of finishes out there.

Traditionally used for the automotive, aerospace, defence, and healthcare industries, Cerakote™ coatings are renowned for their high resistance, unmatched hardness and outstanding UV resistance. The unique structure of Cerakote™ not only offers a beautiful finish and a significant increase in durability, but does so without adding any unnecessary weight to the headphone chassis.

Aluminium Elegance

Creating a flagship headphone takes time and patience to do well, and it’s that kind of craftsmanship that separates the average from the great.

Take a closer look to discover the highly complex geometrical imprint accentuated through the silver finish of the CNC aluminum frame. The process of making a single frame takes about 20 hours. A deep black grill with intricate carvings completes the look, turning ELITE into a futuristic take on personal audio design.

Materials were chosen not just for the exciting sensory experience their raw texture provides, but also for comfort and durability.

Meze Audio X Rinaro IsoDynamics

Rinaro Isodynamics was founded in Ukraine to research acoustic technology and has been innovating in planar magnetics for 30 years. They expanded with new R&D and manufacturing facilities in Ukraine and Poland, which were instrumental in developing Isodynamic Hybrid Array technology used in Empyrean and Elite headphones.

With a custom Rinaro-designed driver, Elite delivers a powerful, lifelike and immersive experience that awakens the senses of the listener. Combining the outstanding mechanical design and ergonomics from Meze Audio with the signature technology of Rinaro, ELITE sets a new standard in top-of-the-line performance.

Designed for Life

Taking long-term sustainability to a new level, Elite is also fully serviceable: from the replaceable earpads to the high-performance materials used, every part of the headphone chassis is available to be easily disassembled and serviced.
