Meze Audio Releases its First Dynamic Open-Back Headphone, the 109 PRO

The 109 PRO is Meze Audio’s first dynamic open-back headphones. The 109 PRO is a cosy, lightweight, and incredibly durable headset that can create a natural, emotionally engaging listening experience. It is made from carefully selected and ethically sourced materials like walnut wood, zinc, manganese steel, and vegan leather.

Diaphragm Design

At the heart of the headphone is the 109 series Dual-Composites diaphragm featuring a Beryllium-coated semicrystalline polymer torus, a cellulose-carbon fibre composite dome and a copper-zinc alloy ring stabiliser. The superlight but stiff cellulose composite reinforced with carbon fibre makes it possible for the W-shaped dome to reproduce high frequencies (5Hz-30KHz) with incredible detail, clarity and definition.

The ultra-thin torus (22 microns) surrounding the dome is constructed out of a Beryllium-coated semicrystalline polymer, which contributes to greater clarity and faster transient response. Around the circumference of the membrane, the ring-shaped stabiliser made of copper-zinc alloy improves the absorption of vibrations to reduce distortion even further.

Acoustic Design

The spider-shaped structure and acoustically transparent grill inside the ear cup expose the driver from both sides, creating Meze Audio’s most open pattern to date. The self-adjusting, spring steel headband distributes weight evenly to relieve pressure, and soft, breathable velour and memory foam earpads comfortably envelop the ears.

Sustainability Through Longevity

As our choices of today can have a great impact on the world of tomorrow, Meze Audio designs products that last. The 109 PRO is fully and endlessly serviceable, which can extend the life of the product beyond the limit.

Meze Audio 109 PRO retails for S$1299 (including GST) and is available at AV One (, Lazada ( and Stereo Electronics.
