LIRIC’s brand new MZ4 driver developed by Rinaro Isodynamics features premium materials, an iso-planar diaphragm with sizeable active area, and dual voice coils (switchback and spiral) configured for the perfect immersive experience.

MZ4 aims to recreate the detail enjoyed in Meze’s higher-end players, such as Empyrean and Elite, all in an expertly scaled compact portable headphone.

Another innovation of the MZ4 is Rinaro’s Phase-X system designed to reduce phase distortion - an issue often exhibited with many closed-back headphones.

Phase-X Technology
LIRIC features brand new MZ4 drivers

Phase-X offers absolute linear phasing, achieving faster transient response decay, revealing the original spatial image and allowing listeners to enjoy material as if it were being recorded directly around them.
