The Meze 99 Classics delivers perfect natural sound even to the pickiest of audio lovers. The walnut wood earcups, soft earpads, and the spring steel headband will make the 99 Classics an heirloom rather than just a pair of headphones.
Just like fingerprints, wood grain is unique, thus making each pair of Meze Headphones one of a kind. You will love how they feel in your hands. Sturdy built and precise assembly. The ear cups are made with a satin-finished wood grain. Put them on, sit back, and enjoy your favourite sound of plucked strings, upbeat grooves or thumping beats while still looking classy.
Meze takes headphone design to a new level by combining modern with handcrafted design, using natural materials and focusing on delivering the best premium sound and changing the perception of headphones as technical devices or as cheap plastic accessories and create a mature product to fall in love with.
The choice of wood is an inherently difficult one. The rich colours of walnut require the use of air drying, a long and expensive procedure. The process of shaping just a single pair of earcups takes up to 8 hours. The whole process of sanding, lacquering and finishing last 45 days. The wooden components are carefully inspected and no flaws are permitted to reach the final assembly.
Also worth mentioning that all the wood that Meze use in their headphones is strictly harvested from sources with a certificate of origin. That is, mature trees that have reached the end of their life cycle. This way helping the environment by giving the old trees a chance to shine one more time in the shape of Meze headphones.
