Meze Audio states that its engineering team worked with Rinaro Audio to employ the company’s Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver that is said to produce high levels of clarity, image depth and musical enjoyment. Meze Audio elaborates further by explaining, the Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils in a driver that is said to better direct sound.
Some of the other attributes of the Empyrean II headphones include a hybrid magnet array that places neodymium magnets in a specific arrangement into the hybrid array. Meze Audio also points out the planar magnet headphones feature Rinaro’s Isomagnetic ear cup to ear pad technology coupling technology that is said to make swapping ear pads easy.
