World, meet PRIMAL

World, meet PRIMAL

We're very happy to announce the launch of our 109 Pro Primal: a very special edition of the award-winning 109 Pro headphones and the latest addition to the exclusive Meze Audio Art Gallery collection.

These headphones are handmade by our skilled artisans, drawing from a proud wood crafting heritage combined with cutting-edge audio technology and a sustainable design, for a timeless blend of performance and elegance.

The walnut earcup frames are chiseled groove by groove and delicately sanded to ensure the smoothest feel, before having a coat of linseed oil applied. This final touch infuses the wood with a natural, matte texture that accentuates the wood grain and restores its innate, captivating color.



Like all Meze Audio headphones, Primal is painstakingly crafted following the principle of "Graba strică treaba" - a Romanian expression translating to "Haste ruins the work" in English. It emphasizes the importance of taking one's time and paying careful attention to detail to achieve exceptional results. 

This new edition also follows our commitment to sustainability. The headphones are designed to be taken apart and serviced endlessly if ever needed, which can extend the life of the product beyond limit. From cables to ear cups and beyond, every element can be replaced and upgraded.

Finally, you’re not sacrificing performance for principles, either: 109 Pro Primal features the same technology as the original 109 Pro, which have just been named Best Headphones of 2023-2024 by the audio experts in the global EISA Awards.

Primal is now for pre-order on, and from selected stockists worldwide.
