Our story


How we got our start?
Meze Audio was founded in 2011 in Baia Mare, Romania. We started small, acquiring knowledge by experimenting with parts already on the market, searching and researching for the right materials and engineering solutions in the quest for the perfect sound and feel.
What makes our product unique?
WE DON’T FOLLOW TRENDS or let them influence the audio quality or design of our products. We develop our own aesthetic language thus creating timeless design. Style must always be a by-product of high functionality and ergonomics. As classics have to outlive seasonal fashions.
Why we love what we do?
We - the Meze team - are engineers, musicians and artists. Headphones are the intersection, the common ground where everybody's interests meet. We are fortunate as our work really is our passion and we develop each model as if making it for ourselves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Belle, Me(ze)ravigliose... ma il suono? Tra Lo-Fi e Hi-Fi, una deludente via di Meze!
Reviewed in Italy on January 21, 2019
Sono un produttore e musicista con oltre 20 anni di attività, ma soprattutto un divoratore insaziabile di musiche, non importa di che genere, basta che siano di alta qualità (compositiva, espressiva-esecutiva e di registrazione). Possiedo una vasta collezione di cuffie Mid-Fi e Hi-Fi (Sennheiser, Grado, Beyerdynamics, Sony, Audiotechnica, Denon...) che utilizzo sia in studio (monitoraggio, mixing e mastering) che a casa per il puro piacere dell’ascolto.

Costantemente a caccia di novità che possano appagare la mia scimmia costantemente affamata di primizie cuffiofile, prima dell'acquisto avevo da tempo adocchiato questa Meze 99 Classic su head-fi.org (principale forum di headphones addicted come me). Appena il prezzo e' calato un poco (presa a 249 euro), ho subito cliccato acquista e neanche 24 ore dopo le avevo già' sulla testa. Veniamo dunque alla recensione, spietata e imparziale, di questo gioiellino di rara bellezza ma dal suono che mi ha lasciato un po’ perplesso.

DESIGN e DOTAZIONE:
bellissima ed elegante la custodia rigida sagomata, all'interno della quale troviamo le cuffie, anch'esse meravigliosamente belle, con un doppio arco metallico che sovrasta la banda morbida in similpelle, la quale ad esso e' agganciata in entrambi i lati tramite due supporti dorati sospensioni elastiche retrattili. Soluzione questa molto stilosa e perfettamente calzante a qualsiasi tipo di cranio. I due archi sono armoniosamente uniti ai raffinatissimi cup in legno di noce attraverso perni circolari dorati che ne consentono piccole oscillazioni a 360 gradi per adattarsi perfettamente al viso quando indossate. Al centro della custodia troviamo una piccola sacca morbida con all'interno due adattatori (un minijack-jack e un doppio mini jack per aereo) e due eleganti cavi rivestiti in corda di nylon, uno di 3mt per uso in poltrona colleganti all’hi-fi, uno piu' corto con remote e microfono per uso con dispositivi mobili, entrambi da un lato con connettori dorati mini jack stereo 3,5 da collegare alle varie sorgenti e dall’altro terminanti con altri due mini jack 3,5 ma stavolta mono, i quali si agganciano sotto le coppe in legno (vedi foto).

COMFORT:
ho una testa non troppo grande e i capelli quasi rasati, la cuffia si adatta molto bene. La fascia in sospensione elastica risulta piacevolmente morbida a contatto con la pelle e abbastanza stabile da non far scivolare via la cuffia se si china il capo. Anche i padiglioni circumaurali chiusi sono sufficientemente morbidi e abbastanza ampi da accogliere pienamente le orecchie orecchie di medie dimensioni. Forse non sono i più caldi di altre cuffie in mio possesso, ma di certo lo sono abbastanza da farmi sudare un poco anche in autunno o inverno (poco adatte come monitorqggio in registrazione sulle orecchie di cantanti particolarmente focosi, oltre a farli sudare disperdono pure abbastanza suono se spinte a volumi alti!). Da evitare l’uso in estate vista la poca traspirazione del materiale in similpelle. La pressione non e’ eccessiva e tutto sommato le ho trovate più che comode.
SUONO:
veniamo alla parte più importante della recensione, ovvero come suonano queste belle cuffie. Non e’ facile descriverlo ma al primo impatto mi ha dato una buona impressione, il suono mi e’ parso subito caldo e avvolgente, con bassi e medio bassi ben pronunciati, medi lineari e alti non affaticanti. Da un ascolto più approfondito, spaziando fra classica, jazz, elettronica bassosa, rock progressive e pop mainstream, dall’entusiasmo iniziale son passato lentamente ad una inesorabile delusione di ascolto. Sono cuffie molto ruffiane, che perdonano largamente registrazioni non eccelse ma che rivelano tutte le sue lacune se messe alla prova con sorgenti di alta definizione e generi dove il realismo non ammette enfatizzazioni innaturali.
Forse sono perfette per chi non ha esigenze di linearità, ascoltando musiche dance pop utracompresse (vedi tutta la spazzatura che passa ogni giorno in radio commerciali) pilotabili da qualsiasi dispositivo (grazie alla bassa impedenza e alla buona sensibilità si ottengono volumi più che adeguati anche con un cellulare). A me sinceramente il suono e’ parso troppo pompato e artificioso. Di seguito spiego il perché.

I SUB BASSI sono troppo lenti e disarticolati per i miei i miei gusti, rendendo troppo confusionari generi e tracce che fondano il loro trasporto su queste frequenze (elettronica, dubstep, dance, trap, ma anche un certo tipo di elettropop).

I MEDIO BASSI forse troppo pronunciati, con un buon punch per il rock o la disco ma troppo avanti da riuscire ad inquinare le altre frequenze.

I MEDI sono abbastanza bilanciati ma con tuto il casino in basso perdono facilmente di credibilità, soprattutto nelle voci femminili e
negli archi. Se la cavano meglio con voci maschili ma che hanno sempre quella parvenza di nasalità inscatolata di chi canta dentro il box doccia. Non so ma ho il forte sospetto che la colpa sia da ricercare nelle riflettenze spurie all’interno nei padiglioni e nel tipo di mescola utilizzata per imbottire i pads in similpelle.

Gli ALTI non sono affatto sibilanti, quindi adatti ad ascolti prolungati anche ad alto volume. Sinceramente pero’ li ho trovati troppo carenti in estensione, dettaglio e grana, rendendo il suono noioso, piatto, ovattato al mio orecchio.
Salverei almeno l’incredibile SOUNDSTAGE, ampissimo e profondo per un paio di cuffie chiuse, se non fosse che spesso si perde di vista la messa a fuoco degli strumenti e delle voci al centro. Colpa forse di alti e medi poco dettagliati, le voci a me suonano sempre un po’ troppo lontane, come se si ascoltasse qualcuno cantare attraverso il muro di un appartamento. In altre parole, tutto e’ abbastanza intellegibile ma non sembra vibrare in presenza e realismo, come invece succede con tanate altre mie cuffie che sanno restituirmi una centratura coinvolgente simile ad assistere una band dal vivo in prima fila.

Viste tutte le recensioni di vari siti audiofili e cuffiofili, nutrivo grandi speranze per queste cuffie che, ripeto, trovo bellissime e davvero comode. Nella speranza che il rodaggio ne migliorasse la performance, le ho fatte suonare con un po’ di tutto per almeno una cinquantina di ore di ascolti vari con diverse sorgenti, sia di alta qualità che portatili. A malincuore pero’ nulla e’ migliorato a parte la mia convinzione a restituirle. Leggendo anche qui su amazon, continuo a sorprendermi davvero che a così tante persone piaccia questo profilo sonoro.

IN SINTESI:
queste Meze 99 Classics sono sì bellissime ed elegantissime, comode (un poco caldi i pads), hanno una buona risposta in tutte le frequenza e un impatto notevole da far invidia alle blasonate Beats o similari. Purtroppo pero’ la loro firma sonora a me non piace proprio, le trovo stucchevolmente pompate e poco veritiere, dalla grana troppo grezza, ovattate e carenti di dettaglio soprattutto negli estremi di banda.

CONSIGLIO FINALE:
Se non avete pretese di audiofilia, ascoltate generi compressi dal cellulare, vi piacciono i bassi esagerati della techno o trap, volete il volume a palla senza correre il rischio che gli alti dei rullanti e dei piattini vi trap…anino i timpani, ma soprattutto amate non passare inosservati, allora potrebbe essere la vostra cuffia. Ma in ultima istanza, alla stessa cifra ci sono le altrettanto stupende Denon AH-MM400 (vedi foto) anche queste con tutte le caratteristiche delle MEZE ma con in più un suono altrettanto profondo ma decisamente più realistico in scena e coinvolgimento, dalle dimensioni più contenute e ottima trasportabili grazie alla possibilità di ripiegare i bellissimi padiglioni in legno riducendo al minimo l’ingombro.
BUONA MUSICA A TUTTI!
