The 99 Classics headphone by Meze may just be the sexiest headset you’ll see in a while. It’s made out of wood, leather, and metal, a combination that’s as perfect as bacon, lettuce, and tomato. What’s good about the headphones is that they scream honesty. Each and every component used is a necessary part of the headphone’s build. There are no parts in the assembly that serve as pure embellishment. Each part is designed to last and is serviceable, a trend that’s becoming rare in today’s use’n’throw world. Designed with the express purpose of being so good and convenient, the 99 Classics headphones will stay with you forever, becoming the only headphones you’ll ever need (and probably a piece of technology so valuably brilliant, it becomes a heirloom item).
The Walnut wood cups on the headphones are like fingerprints. The grain design on each pair is unique and one of a kind. The wooden blocks are precision milled and then hand sanded and polished. A process that takes more than a month (true craftsmanship, if you ask me). The leather headband makes the headphones effectively distribute their weight, so it feels as if you’re not even wearing them. The headphone cable has a Kevlar coating around it, making it absolutely invincible. As for the sound, the 99 Classics headphones are honest there too. Designed with just the right sound balance, the cans deliver crystal clear, un-altered sound. The audiophile in me is highly impressed!
The 99 Classics headphones come in two timeless colour schemes, in a beautifully articulated bundle. With every cable/wire/converter you can dream of!
