GATEWAY TO SONIC PARADISE

“When we first talked about creating the second generation of Empyrean, I knew it would be far from easy. With many ideas in mind, I reached out to our community, eager to gather their feedback in any way I could. I wanted to dive into their hearts and minds, to understand their expectations, and so their input is what shaped the path toward Empyrean II. What followed was a test of patience and precision. At first, the possibilities seemed endless, but reality showed us that only a few of our plans were feasible. We made a lot of revisions to discover the right proportions and materials that would deliver the sound signature we aimed for.”

Alex Grigoras, Acoustic Engineer

ARTISTRY MEETS CRAFTSMANSHIP

The Bliss Level 1 has single-ended stereo RCA and single-ended stereo XLR inputs. The device has three headphone outputs on its front panel, with single-ended Jack 3.5mm as well as balanced XLR 4 pins and Jack 4.4mm. The rear of the unit also features a single-ended stereo RCA and balanced stereo XLR output.

Crafted with precision via CNC milling, the frame features a sleek matte black finish with silver accents, and a redesigned grill that draws inspiration from the bold and timeless art deco patterns.

“As good as the initial design looked, the headphones we thought were final proved to be fragile. The aluminum grill wasn’t turning out that great, there was an unexpected structural failure, and we were changing the colors almost daily, struggling to decide upon the perfect combination. A lot of determination, a few more iterations and we finally nailed it – Empyrean II.”

Vladimir Brezovszki, Product Designer

MEZE X RINARO

Empyrean II emerges as the fruitful collaboration of two passionate companies that set out to explore uncharted territories. Our engineering team has masterfully harnessed the power of Rinaro’s Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver to reach a new world of sound.

MORE CLARITY. MORE DEPTH. MORE FUN

Our goal was to enhance the headphones’ ability to reproduce fine details and achieve a more neutral sound signature, all the while preserving the original “easy to listen to” character.

We believe good things take time, so we spent months trying and testing out different tuning techniques, until we finally had it. Our efforts revealed new possibilities in terms of resolution and detail retrieval, achieving a cleaner and more accurate representation of sound, when compared to the original Empyrean.

ARCHITECTURE OF THE ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER©

The Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver combines individual switchback and spiral shaped voice coils in one driver, allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear.

ACCURATE REPRODUCTION Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.05% in the whole frequency range LIGHTWEIGHT Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions ERGONOMIC SHAPE Anatomically designed driver structure ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz
[MZ3] HYBRID MAGNET ARRAY

Symmetrically placed on each side of the diaphragm, the neodymium magnets are specifically arranged into a Hybrid Array to create the efficient Isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface.

RINARO ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM

Weighing only 0.16 g while having 4650 mm2 of active area.

[MZ3] FRAME

Fiberglass infused ABS.

ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM MATERIAL

The switchback coil of the diaphragm is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies and is positioned in the upper part of the drive

The spiral coil of the diaphragm is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies and is positioned directly over the ear canal enabling more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delays.

ISOMAGNETIC® EARCUP TO EARPAD COUPLING TECHNOLOGY

Rinaro’s Isomagnetic® coupling technology makes switching earpads a breeze. It utilizes the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to secure the earcup in place, while simultaneously redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver, thereby enhancing efficiency.

Our all-new Duo earpads are specifically tailored to match Empyrean II. Crafted from a precise blend of premium leather and Alcantara, the Duo Earpads introduce a contemporary dimension to the signature sound profile of Empyrean II. With leather forming the base half and Alcantara® covering the rest, these earpads deliver a harmonious tonal balance that resonates across all music genres.

We researched and tested various material ratios to achieve the best there is to offer. The outcome is a flawless fusion: well-sustained bass frequencies owed to the leather, with beautiful refinement and spatiality from Alcantara®.

Made of soft foam coated with Alcantara®, with a fine protective mesh on the grill, the Angled earpads excel at rendering intricate details and nuances in your recordings. The angled shape creates more space inside the earpad, which translates to an airier sound signature, with cleaner bass and improved presence in the mid-range frequency, when paired with Empyrean II.

Furthermore, they create a detailed and accurate listening experience, for the classic audiophile.

Comfort

With Empyrean II, your music takes center stage. Following our highest standard for comfort, with a purpose-built structure that minimizes weight and pressure, this headphone instantly adapts to the shape of your head.

This highly acclaimed synergy of ergonomics and premium materials guarantees more than just exceptional sound – it allows you to enjoy uninterrupted hours of music with increased comfort.
