    I have been saving my pennies to get the hifiman arya. How do you think they compare against these awesome headphones? It would just take me another 20 years to save for them, so may as well get the best worth for my pennies.

      According to one's like Crinacle, the Arya is a lot better. Much better delivery, detail, Soundstage. Actually the empyrian is sort of a mixed bag when it comes to audiophiles. Some love it, some think it's just ok, but boomy and dark (as you can tell from the graph it is)

    I put off watching this for so long because I knew I'd never be able to afford them, but hearing again about the Meze company in general has made me more sure that I want to at least get the 99 Neos some day. Definitely a company that deserves to be supported, when so many other larger ones are slacking off.

    I just want to point out how some people spend a grand on a phone every year, then use the cheapest possible (if not free) earphones with them. It is actually far better to save on the phone and invest in a great set of headphones which will never need replacing. All of your media is going to be played through those.

    Ohms aren't a very reproducible way of measuring if you need an amp, huge home speakers are 8 ohms and my planar magnetic hifimans are 25 but are very difficult to run in comparison to some 32-40 ohmers

      The thing is the 600 doesn't sound staticy. That sound you hear from the 600 is a more accurate resonance from the cymbals. The meze is actually very bass boosted and has a lot less treble. Not an accurate or "flat" response at all. They're a nice pair of headphones, but 600 is more accurate

      Sennheiser is much more flat than the meze. The meze has a huge base boost and dark highs. The problem is Wade here is mixing up graphs. The one he uses for the Sennheiser is a compensated graph (you want it flat). The one for the meze is a raw graph (you don't want it flat). The fact that the meze looks flat on the raw graph shows that it's not tuned well

    Hey everyone! I thought I'd clear up some things I've consistently seen throughout the comments. 1. The HD600's being static-y or fuzzy. Those are cymbals. 2. SE-one compression and what headphones you use change the results of this test. This is true. 3. The difference between the hd600's and empyreans being mind-boggling. The Empy's in my eyes are quite overpriced, especially compared to things similar in price. A lot of them aren't even made in China. The focal utopias for instance is made in France. If they were closer to 1k, they'd be quite compelling in terms of sound. They do look pretty decent. 4. This one sample proves the empy's are better. This is false, I feel like for the jazz, the hd600's showed more detail. Each headphone is better at certain music than others.

    To those who may never own one of these even if they can afford it due to the ridiculous cost and are curious what it's like having them. I can give you my 2 cents. Honestly, it's hard to say whether or not you'll appreciate one of these. I have them and thought they would be my daily driver, but i've since settled on KPH30is a $30 headphone. I got a really golden sounding one of those and like their sound more than anything, even the empyreans. What I appreciate about the Empyreans are the build and comfort quality, they really set the standard there. I dont think many people will argue on that point nor its presentation. But other than that for its cost, i feel it's not something i really love or something that was worth it soundwise, from the fact i prefer a headphone that is over a 100 times cheaper. I just use it occasionally now and as a reference the same way i used to use by HD600s as one. I use it to judge what a track should sound like. or for the very rare instances my KPH30is dont sound right on some niche tracks. If you think i'm hating on them, i'm not. Sure it's clear, good imaging, sound stage, but i guess it's the tone/timbre/musicality , it's not quite colored to my liking. No matter how high and elite the sound might be if it isnt as you would like it to sound, lest say bassy or if you are a treble head or you love V shape or pronounced mids then you wont like this. You'll have more enjoyment and fun with whatever low end but good headphone you like even if it isn't the all round king that this one is. People have specific tastes in food and same goes for music. The richness of a dish matters little versus your particular tastes that are unique to you. Since purchasing it, i've gained a new respect for all the rest of my cheaper headphones and i hope that you know if there is a headphone you like a lot, then even if you shell out thousands of dollars it won't necessarily get any better or much better than it. On that note I do recommend giving the KPH30is a try. Also anyone still wanting to purchase these, should go ahead. The worth that you get may not be necessarily pure enjoyment like this reviewer but you'll certainly get a top notch headphone that will be the new gold standard for measuring every headphone in your collection or ones that you come across in the future. Whether that privilege only is worth the price tag is something you have to decide for yourself. Cheers!
