Meze 99 Classics

 

The Meze 99 Classics are handsomely designed headphones that deliver an exciting audio experience.

Excellent audio performance with articulate highs and ideal bass response. Comfortable fit. Lots of accessories, including detachable cables with inline remote controls.

Expensive. Bulky design not necessarily ideal for mobile use.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the 99 Classics deliver a perfect balance of bass depth and high frequency definition. The lows on this track sound truly powerful—there's definitely...

Earth and Fire, Wind and Water - A Review of the Meze 99 Classics

 

The goal I set out with—the idea that drove me—was to find a set of portable cans which performed well enough to not make me crawl, desperate and hungry, back to my Top Of The Line IEMs. As much as I like the sound of my Sennheiser Momentums, they are...

Tuning that shines with every device. Comfort. Detachable Cable. What a looker!

Needs mods for custom cable, or a Meze proprietary plug.

The 99 Classics’ organic and natural sound is truly special.

 

WOOD IS GOOD “Are those new? They look stylish.” “New headphones? They're spiffy.” “Ooo, I love those.” I can't make this stuff up folks. There's been no shortage of compliments since donning the Meze 99 Classics headphone at my office. Yes, you read...

Tight, punchy bass, comfort, solid build, excellent case, no plastic

Loss of treble resolution in busy songs, cable very long

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

A-meze-ing! If 309 USD are still not enough to reach reference high end sound... Romania is seriously working on it!

 

There already are a lot of reviews available for the Meze 99 Classics. So, why writing another one? Well, I used to buy and sell a respectable amount of headphones since approx. 7 years now - when the fever started - and never reviewed one of them...

Amazing allrounder, nicely crafted piece of audio equipment setting a new standard for the price, lovely midrange, customer experience with Meze

Earcups could be a tad larger and the bass a bit tighter with some music genres and recordings, average soundstage, slightly microphonic cables
