Meze 88 ClassicsRating:
I purchased my Meze headphones somewhat skeptical but also very intrigued by this new stylish brand. I had never heard of this brand before and they are not endorsed by any big brand or publication. But the risk taking was rewarded:
The sound is just so nice and so pleasant. I would say that the they really deliver what they advertise. A comfortable headphone with a pleasant balanced sound and with a look that kind of ignores trends: the name “Classics” really fits them. I guess the word that I am looking for and that best describes them is ‘timeless’.
I listen to a very wide range of tunes and the 88 Classics did well in any situation. They reproduced powerful but un-distorted bass of my favorite album from The Knife (Deep Cuts), they let me hear all the details and layer of highly crowded jazz tunes. I tried rock and even some power metal. All sounded good!
Soft ear-pads (not sure if it’s real leather) but very comfortable. Detachable cable makes the headphones very practical. I hate it when I just yank out the cables by mistake. Those suspension pads on the headband are fantastic. They looked a bit goofy to me at first but once I used the headphones for a few hours I saw that it was not just a funky design feature. Those folding spring-like pads really make a difference.
- Pleasant sound
- Great style
- Good comfort
- Maybe the price but then again you can't really find any other wood headphones at this price
It is obvious that they touched my weak spot. And I am sure that there must be things that some might not like about them (price, style, sound signature etc.) but in all fairness, these are headphones to be proud of
They definitely appeal to the category of people who look for this classical style aesthetic; And they appealed to me; These headphones have already became one of those beloved objects in the house that you don’t want anybody else to touch
