Meze Audio 99 Neo Headphones
What we think in the Inner Sanctum:
The Meze Audio 99 Neo takes the amazing sound of their 99 Classics and packages it with ultra-modern flare, replacing the real wood ear cups of the Classic with sleek textured black ear cups.
This does two things. It gives the Neo a more contemporary aesthetic. It also lowers the cost.
Does it change the sound? Not by that much. We invite you to make an appointment to come perform your own "blindfold test." Find out for yourself!
The two 99 Neo units we currently have in stock are from the first production run by Meze. They include two cables (short with a mic, and long) while the next batch of Neos will only include the short cable. Also, the headband is emblazoned with "99 Classics" instead of "99 Neo," which will also change with the next batch. Same great sound!
From the manufacturer:
A fresh take on the 99 series for the uptown audiophile, 99 Neo brings together Meze Audio’s signature sound quality with cutting edge style.
