A Tuned-Up Sound Profile

The Meze Audio LIRIC II represents a harmonious blend of industrial design prowess and cutting-edge technological innovation. Designed for the active audiophile who demands both mobility and exceptional sound quality, the LIRIC II offers a refined sound profile that strikes a perfect balance between warmth and clarity. Utilizing the innovative Quarter Wavelength Resonator Mask (QWRM), this headphone effectively attenuates high-frequency peaks above 7kHz, ensuring a listening experience that is both rich and non-fatiguing.

Design Inspiration

Rooted in the tradition of Maramures craftsmanship, the LIRIC II maintains the iconic design language of its predecessor while introducing a touch of warmth through the use of wood in the ear cups. The chosen material, Macassar ebony, is a dense and aesthetically pleasing hardwood known for its deep brown coloration and intricate golden-brown stripes. Each pair of headphones is unique, with the distinctiveness of Macassar ebony ensuring that every LIRIC II is not just a device for music but a personal statement piece with its own story.

Designed for Life

The LIRIC II continues Meze Audio's commitment to durability and serviceability with the introduction of detachable magnetic ear pads. This feature enhances the headphones' longevity and ease of maintenance, making them a reliable companion for music enthusiasts who demand quality that lasts.

Quality in Every Aspect

Meze Audio has elevated the listening experience of the LIRIC II by including a premium hand-braided copper cable as the standard option. This cable offers a 4.4mm termination, making it suitable for most portable headphone amplifiers. Additionally, a 3m soft TPE cable with a 3.5mm jack is provided for home headphone setups, ensuring that the LIRIC II is versatile enough to accommodate various listening environments.

A New Chapter in Audio Excellence

The LIRIC II marks a significant milestone in Meze Audio's journey, building upon the feedback from their dedicated community to deliver a headphone that exemplifies Meze's commitment to evolution. With its refined sound, inspired design, and enhanced reliability, the LIRIC II is a testament to Meze's ongoing quest for perfection in audio.

Richer Sound, Balanced Warmth

At the heart of the LIRIC II lies Meze Audio's closed-back isodynamic headphone technology, which has been meticulously tuned to offer a sound that is both clear and accurate, with just the right touch of warmth for added depth. This tuning ensures that music is reproduced with the utmost fidelity, capturing every nuance and detail.

Preserving Tradition, Embracing Innovation

In keeping with the legacy of the original LIRIC, the LIRIC II maintains the classic design language while introducing the warmth of Macassar ebony wood ear cups. This blend of tradition and innovation results in a headphone that is as visually stunning as it is sonically impressive.

Engineered for Effortless Maintenance
