Rinaro Isodynamics

Rinaro originated in the USSR (today’s Ukraine) during the Cold War as part of a state-funded acoustic technology research program. With government backing and access to advanced testing facilities, the team was able to focus all of its efforts on planar magnetics. A field they have continued to innovate in for the last 30 years, since the collapse of the USSR. In the last decade, Rinaro have expanded their capabilities and capacity with the development of state-of-the-art R&D and manufacturing facilities in Ukraine and Poland. The new facilities have been a driving force in the creation of the revolutionary Isodynamic Hybrid Array technology found in Meze Empyrean and ELITE headphones.

BEAUTIFUL AESTHETICS

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.



Meze Audio Elite Tungsten Open Back Headphones

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, defense, 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.

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

A carbon fiber headband with a real leather headrest were added to the frame, for an ultra-light feel and maximum durability.

PATIENCE
MAKES PERFECT

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.

The process of making a single aluminum skeleton takes about 20 hours. To that, we add the time it takes to hand-paint each piece of the frame, along with the time spent inspecting each part of the headphone, assembling the parts and making sure the final product rises up to our high standards. This can’t be achieved through mass-production and that means delivery times can be longer, but we guarantee it’s worth it.

ELITE is hand assembled with care and painstaking attention to detail in Baia Mare, Romania.

THE PROGRESSION OF THE FLAGSHIP
RINARO ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER®

With a custom, newly designed driver, created by Rinaro Isodynamics, ELITE is the result of 3 years of research and development through which we strived to create a powerful, lifelike, and immersive experience that awakens the senses of the listener.

ARCHITECTURE OF THE
ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER®

The MZ3SE driver builds on the pioneering technology of the flagship MZ3 driver found in the Empyrean headphone. The innovative Isodynamic Hybrid Array technology delivers a more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear. Advances in diaphragm materials have opened the doors to even higher resolution and accuracy of the sound reproduction, setting a new benchmark in headphone design.

CASING
Reinforced polymer housing designed to withstand the demanding 12,7N load generated by the Hybrid Magnet Array.

RINARO PARUS® DIAPHRAGM
Weighing only 0.11g with a large active area of 4650mm.

HYBRID MAGNET ARRAY
Symmetrically placed on either side of the diaphragm our neodymium magnets are arranged into a Hybrid Array to create a 0.35 Tesla Isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface.


Meze Audio Elite Tungsten Open Back Headphones

The new driver behind ELITE features Rinaro Parus®, an innovative low mass acoustic diaphragm built on an ultra-thin biaxially oriented semi-crystalline polymer film. This, combined with the signature Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver technology, allows sound waves to be targeted with more accuracy around the shape of the ear, producing natural sound transparency and a wide, articulate soundstage. This results in improved definition and speed over the entire frequency range.

The polymer is produced with bespoke sequential biaxial lengthening technology, a process that involves stretching the polymer in transverse directions at elevated temperatures to improve structural performance. This result is a complex semi-crystalline micro structure developing in the material, which exhibits remarkable strength, stiffness, and stability, combined with an extremely low acoustic mass.

DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM
ADVANTAGES

The use of different voice coil configurations found in the Isodynamic Hybrid Array creates the opportunity to improve the sound intensity distribution at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal.
This solves a common problem with conventional planar magnetic arrays whereby reflected signals enter the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging.

REVOLUTIONARY EARPAD TECHNOLOGY

An innovative design feature developed by Rinaro is the Isomagnetic® earpad attachment, which utilises the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to hold the earpad in place whilst also redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver and improving driver efficiency.



Meze Audio Elite Tungsten Open Back Headphones

95% Magnetic field shielding
Ferromagnetic earpads decrease the magnetic stray field affecting the listeners head by 95%

Invisible locking system
Innovative use of the magnetic field of the drivers to keep the earpads in place

12% Increase in driver power
Patented ferromagnetic plates channel the magnetic field back into the driver increasing output by 1db or 12%
