About this deal

I like these for almost everything regarding Genre pairing, except EDM, where I prefer having a planar headphone with more aggressive speed and impact.

Not happening to me, but I have rather small ears and I’ve heard that some users had this kind of problem. I found that swapping to the Brainwavz micro-suede pads did change sonics slightly and more to my liking.You get what you pay for, and the Meze 99 Classics is a gorgeous pair of headphones with good sound to match. This sort of reminds me of the Grado approach but this time there is not a spec of glue in sight on the 99 Classics. That kind of form-fitting is also reflected in the padding on the ear cups which sit almost flat around the ears but still allow them room to breathe.

Spaciousness, openness, positioning, transparency, refinement, delicacy, and an engrossing musicality of tone/timbre and texture are what lift the Meze Empyrean above its over-achieving and quite talented sibling. The original and subsequent replacement earpads have rotted and fallen apart because of the use of pleather in their construction. In my opinion, that's a perfect thing as they managed to create such an excellent design in the first place. I have to salute whoever created this design from an aesthetical standpoint alone; they are one of the best-looking headphones I have tried to date. Whether they get sent to me or purchased from the site’s ad revenue, it doesn't matter; everything gets a fair shake.

We don’t recommend boosting or cutting more than 6dB, but that range is difficult to navigate without taking some liberties. The box of 99 Classics is great looking, it packs some exciting accessories and the overall experience is joyful.
