Meze 99 Classic Closed Back Headphones

Just like fingerprints, wood grain is as unique, thus making each pair of Meze Headphone a one of a kind. You will love how they feel in your hands. Sturdy built and precise assembly. The ear cups are made with a satin finished wood grain. Put them on, sit back, and enjoy your favourite sound of plucked strings, upbeat grooves or thumping beats while still looking classy.


We're taking headphone design to a new level by combining modern with hand crafted design, using natural materials and focusing on delivering the best premium sound.

Our aim is to change the perception of headphones as technical devices or as cheap plastic accessories and create a mature product to fall in love with.


The choice of wood is an inherently difficult one. The rich colors of walnut require the use of air drying, a long and expensive procedure. The process of shaping just a single pair of earcups takes up to 8 hours. The whole process of sanding, lacquering, and finishing lasts 45 days. The wooden components are carefully inspected and no flaws are permitted to reach the final assembly.


We aimed for perfection in every component we designed. CNC carved wood ear cups, cast zinc alloy hardware with electroplated coating, stamped manganese spring steel headband, memory foam and soft PU leather are the materials your hands and eyes will get to enjoy. No plastic here for you to see. Besides the usual warranty everybody is offering, we guarantee that the 99's are serviceable if any parts would ever need to be replaced because we built these headphones to last .

Let's solve this

Discomfort: Meze's solution - A headband that delivers even pressure for any head size.

Sound isolation: Meze's solution - using medium density memory foam ear-pads.

No glue, just nuts and bolts: The metal hardware is cast zinc and manganese spring steel.

Each wooden ear-cup of the 99 Classics is precision carved on a CNC machine and then hand finished and polished

Sustainable Sourcing

It is worth mentioning that all the wood that we use in our headphones is strictly harvested from sources with certificate of origin. That is, mature trees that have reached the end of their life cycle. This way, we are helping the environment and we're giving the old trees a chance to shine one more time in the shape of Meze headphones.

The sound of the 99 Classics is crisp and clear, offering non distorted and balanced sound.

Worth every cent

well I'm no 'audiophile' whatever that really means but
I am someone who appreciates good music with full rich
bass and good clear treble .
I've always tried to buy decent audio equipment but
have had to balance that with a restricted budget. But recently
the purse strings have loosened somewhat so I decided
I would treat myself to a really nice set of headphones.
I was originally looking at a pair of Sennheiser hd599s as I have bought Sennheiser
in the past and have always found them quite good products.
Then I saw a review of the Meze 99 Classics and although the price was quite daunting, after I few weeks convincing myself I decided to take the plunge and splurge on a set.
As it turns out it was the best audio decision I have ever made.
Oh my goodness what a revelation they are! Bottomless bass with clear precise treble and wonderful mid range.
also although they don't have noise cancelling tech in them with the walnut closed back design not much outside noise interferes with your listening enjoyment.
On top of that they are just drop dead gorgeous seriously these thing are a work of art.
plus at 32ohms these thing will run on anything from a ipod to a home stereo.
If you are looking for a set of headphones to treasure for years to come you've found them.
