Description


n

Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies coming together to explore what is possible beyond their individual capabilities. The result is a no-compromise headphone embodying Meze’s daring aesthetic and user-centered design approach and Rinaro’s experience in research

n

and development within the field of planar magnetics.Rinaro, a progressive audio company, has at the heart of its technology an R&D team that has been at the forefront of planar magnetic development since the 1980’s. What originally started as a state-funded initiative with a focus on innovation has now entered into a new chapter of audio progression with the opening of a cutting-edge industrial facility in Ukraine.

n

n

n

n

Over 30 years of research and development have led to the creation of the first Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver. Meze Audio have collaborated with Rinaro to create a new standard in planar magnetic audio, the resulting technology being one of the lightest and most advanced planar magnetic drivers on the market.

The Empyrean Driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils, their unique shapes allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear. This unique combination generates an increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range and improves imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections.

AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM

n
n

n

One of the problems with conventional planar magnetic arrays is coming from reflected signals entering the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging.
nCombining different voice coil configurations makes it possible to create a better sound intensity distribution across the sound wavefront at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal.

nISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM MATERIAL
nThe diaphragm is manufactured from a custom developed isotropic thermally stabilized polymer with a conductive layer. Through unique processing methods, an ultralight yet rigid diaphragm has been achieved.SWITCHBACK COIL
nThe switchback coil is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies and is positioned in the upper part of the driver.SPIRAL COIL
nThe spiral coil is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies and is positioned directly over the ear canal enabling more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delays.

n

n

n

n

n

n

nTo create an audiophile headphone that is powerful yet light the driver needed to maximize power output while reducing weight as much as possible.
n

nWeight was minimized by optimizing a magnet structure around an ovoid shape that fits the ear more closely. Power output was increased through the use of a completely bespoke coil and magnet array design that optimized the active usable area of the driver within its ovoid shape.

ISOMAGNETIC® EARCUP TO EARPAD COUPLING TECHNOLOGY

n
n

n

An innovative feature is the Isomagnetic® ear cup attachment which utilizes the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to hold the ear cup in place whilst also redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver and improving driver efficiency.

n

n

Magnetic field shielding
n
nThe ferromagnetic ear pads decrease the magnetic stray field affecting the listeners head.

n

Increase in driver efficiency
n
nPatented ferromagnetic plates channel the magnetic field back into the driver, increasing output.

n

Invisible locking system
n
nInnovative use of the magnetic field of the drivers to fix the earcups in place.

STRAY FIELD REDUCTION FROM ISOMAGNETIC® PLATE COUPLING

n
nPatented ferromagnetic plates channel the demagnetizing field back into the driver increasing efficiency by 1db or 12% and deflect 95% of stray fields away from the head.
