“The 99 Classics sound simply glorious – uncannily spacious, brimming with energy and vivacity and a cranked up
sense of performance that’s genuinely surprising and frequently riveting. Efficient and easy to drive, it comes across like a pair of speakers that have been ‘un-damped’ for greater immediacy, impact and musical communication.” HiFi Choice

PREMIUM SOUND DESIGNED FOR THOSE WHO KNOW
We’re taking headphone design to a new level by combining modern with hand crafted design, using natural materials and focusing on delivering the best premium sound.
Our aim is to change 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 colors 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 lasts 45 days. The wooden components are carefully inspected and no flaws are permitted to reach the final assembly.
It is worth mentioning that all the wood that we use in our headphones is strictly harvested from sources with certificate of origin. That is, mature trees that have reached the end of their life cycle. This way, we are helping the environment and we’re giving the old trees a chance to shine one more time in the shape of Meze headphones.
