Meze Audio Elite over-ear headphones

In sonic terms, the Meze Audio Elite have next-to-nothing to apologise for. If we’re going to indulge in gratuitous nit-pickery, they could conceivably be more forceful where the lowest frequencies in LCD Soundsystem’s Daft Punk is Playing at My House [DFA] – but that would be asking the Elite to impose themselves on a recording and, as already observed, that’s never their inclination.

You’ve only a couple of hurdles to clear before you can bask in the remarkable fidelity of these headphones. The first, of course, is the asking-price – because it’s not just the almost-£4K you’ll need to find, it’s also the considerable outlay on source equipment that’s capable of doing them some justice. And then there’s the strong design elements, which take Elite far away from the cigar humidor aesthetics of the highly polished wood-finished high-end designs currently so popular in high-end headphones. Regardless, with the Meze Audio Elite profound sonic gratification can be yours.
