The Meze 12 Classics are conceived to hide the high-end audio tech beneath a sense of style. Design should be like a great performance: you have to make it look easy! No matter the effort, the paths that lead to nowhere, the iterations. Time will judge only the end result.
As we create headphones, we emphasize hearing among the senses. And make no mistake, the Meze unforgiving standards of fun are here! But most perceptions involve simultaneously more than one sense: so we needed the comfort, the visuals and even the subdued smell to match the mark of the object. For an artifact to really feel organic, each part of it needs to be designed as if it coevolved; as if nature and time kept sculpting and optimising every aspect. The presence of wood enhances that message: the slight variation needed for individuality.
