Refined electrodynamic driver with UPM balanced piston membrane motion, encased in a durable and ergonomic sintered steel shell.

Rai Solo has been born from our vision to offer entry-level audiophiles a solid built and great value IEM.
Ergonomic design, sturdy stainless-steel shell, refined dynamic driver, all for one purpose: enchanting your senses through a pure listening experience.

In developing the Rai Solo, we looked for a fun-neutral but well refined and controlled sound signature.
The strongest correlation between the Rai Solo and the Rai Penta is the similar shape of the IEM.

The use of Metal Injection Moulding technology for the body of the Solo made it possible to have a very complex inner shape made in mass production with great accuracy

Description

REVIEWS
The wire free UPM design, but also the excellent use of the dynamic driver, coupled with the well-designed stainless steel casing and closed design, this Rai Solo is undoubtedly one of the best in-ear headphones of today.” AV MEGA

The Rai Solo is another piece of refined, yet eye-catching industrial design from Meze Audio that feels premium beyond its price-point. Underneath that subtly polished steel lies a forward, energetic sonic signature.Matty Graham, Headfonia

 

DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED IN BAIA MARE, ROMANIA
The RAI series designs are grounded in the realities of everyday life. The aim is for anyone to find valid options when looking for an IEM to fit their lifestyle. Solo is opening the RAI family, as an entry-level audiophile IEM born from our pledge of honest design and true audio.

 

POWER OF PURE MUSIC
Rai Solo has been at the origin of the entire Rai IEM family so it shares a lot of design philosophy DNA with the flagship Rai Penta. It was supposed to be released ahead of Rai Penta, but we took our time to perfect it for mass production. The result is a high value, yet still affordable, IEM.

 

TRADITIONAL DRIVER MEMBRANE
In a traditional electrodynamic driver the voice coil lead wires are glued to the back side of the thin membrane.
This is the major factor of the unbalanced vibration.

 

WIRE FREE UPM DESIGN
The new UPM driver eliminates this inconvenience by using a totally different approach: the membrane itself is electrically conductive and, therefore, no wires are attached to the diaphragm. The result is a symmetric pistonic motion through its entire movement, without disturbance from the unbalance created by wires.

 

MAIN BENEFITS

  • Low total harmonic distortion
  • Clear mid-range
  • Outstanding reproduction of low frequencies

 

VIBRATION REDUCTION SYSTEM
Stainless steel is an extremely rigid material, has low resonance and therefore delivers minimum interference to the vibration created by the driver unit. In terms of audio performance, these advantages contribute to a clean and dark background with well-defined imaging. Specially conceived shell architecture in conjunction with the steel chassis dampens vibration from the driver unit.

 

ANATOMIC FIT
The more comfortable the IEM the better the listening experience, this is a fact. Serious audiophiles will spend hours on end engaged in their music.

We have designed the RAI series In Ear Monitors to deliver comfort and prolonged listening sessions allowing for a truly immersive experience for you and your music.

Attention to details to an extreme: round, soft edges designed to embrace the natural curves from one’s ear and to fit perfectly.

Ergonomics at its best. Pure comfort. Feeling of airiness and seamless fit.

 

HIDDEN POWER
The Rai Solo works effortlessly with any device due to its low impedance and high sensitivity but to truly enjoy the full potential and advantages of its special driver we recommend the use of a DAP or a DAC if you want to use your phone as a source.

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
