Meze Audio, a Romanian high-end audio company, introduces the Rai Solo, its newest in-ear monitor (IEM). The Rai Solo is the second IEM developed in the Rai product range, after the release of the Rai Penta earlier this year.
The Rai Solo aspires to become the IEM of choice for music lovers who are just venturing into the audiophile world, promising its users an affordable way to immerse into pure listening bliss while enjoying ergonomic elegant design.
Attention to Detail
The Rai Solo and Rai Penta shares a similar shape: Round, soft edges on the IEM designed to embrace the natural curves of one’s ears.
In developing the Rai Solo, Meze Audio obtained a fun-neutral but well refined and controlled sound signature.
What seperates the Rai Solo from the rest is the technology utilised in the driver that will give users a bang for their buck. Featuring a refined electrodynamic driver with a UPM balanced piston membrane motion, the Rai Solo membrane itself is electrically conductive and requires no wires attached to the diaphragm. The result is a symmetric pistons motion through its entire movement, countering the disturbance users may get from the unbalance created by the wires, giving you clear mid-range and outstanding reproduction of low frequencies.
Engineered to Last
The driver is encased in an ergonomic sintered steel shell that is built to last. The use of Metal Injection Moulding technology for the body of the Solo also made it possible to have a very complex inner shape made in mass production with great accuracy. The Rai Solo delivers a clean and dark background with well-defined imaging. The meticulously engineered shell architecture, combined with the steel chassis, dampens the vibration from the driver while offering an extremely comfortable wear suitable for extended hours of listening pleasure.
