Meze 99 Classics over ear headphones, with solid Walnut earcups. 99 Classics use a machined natural walnut wood housing, combined with a wide, soft headband and memory foam earpads to good effect. Weight is surprisingly light compared with other brands and comfort is excellent. The 99 classics are a very good sounding headphone in their sub $500 price range, having racked up many great reviews, with a full sound and a strong, quality sub-bass response.
The short cable has an inline mic and both use a kevlar lining and fabric wrap for durability, with OFC copper for high quality. A hard shell carry case is included, with two cables and adaptors.
Love these headphones. As a woodworker i was drawn to the walnut, they look fantastic. They are very light, yet sturdy and very comfortable. They have a wonderful, rich full bass. Some may find them too bassy, but thats exactly what i was looking for to complement my other phones. These do not disappoint in the bass department. They also sound great in the mids and highs, They are warm and wonderful for a variety of musical genres from Adele, Celine and Rammstein they do it all well. I have some Focal Clear which are better, but way more expensive. I find that while i love the focal,s there are certain groups or songs that i prefer on the meze. For the price they are fantastic and give phones costing much more a run for their money. Im a very happy camper with these beauties.
Out of all the headphones I've tried these seem to be the best
Fantastic cans. Lightweight, beautiful, drives easily from my mobile device, very comfortable. Cables and case are high quality. No doubt about it, these will be my default headphones indefinitely. Cannot speak to comparable sound quality except that it's better than every budget cans I've had by miles.
Great build quality, solid, fun punchy sound with great bass, decent highs and so-so mids. The stock pads are **** and need to be changed. I swapped for Brainwavz Sheepskin and the comfort was much better + the bass calmed down a bit. The Fostex THX00 are better, but not as sexy.
