    I’ve never tried the vintage blacks, but these retooled blacks are a lot smoother than the latest blacks. I’ve also spring swapped them with springs of Gateron Yellow switches and lubed with Krytox 105. They feel and sound very nice. A little typing test:

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    I’ve got that one from Meze, but I prefer the FAW Noir Hpc mk2 to be honest. Also the connectors of the Meze cable are really stiff and cause some noise when I move my head. Probably need to oil the connectors a bit though

    Off topic, but I really would like a picture of your setup. Do you have one? Rack you're using for your DAC looks awesome :-)

    Personally I’m very happy with this new feature and I think the mix is spot on :-)

    It's on the back of the card. I don't know, I guess not, but I posted here literally 5 mins after I received them.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    My second replacement just arrived and this one is beyond perfect. I'm very happy. Balanced cable looks beautiful too. Can't wait to have a few long listening sessions the upcoming holidays! Credits to Mircea and Meze Audio for being understanding and flexible (delivery was carefully planned...

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    If I understood my dealer and distributor correctly, my replacement that I'll receive mid-december will be from the second batch. Therefore I think there's a good chance that you'll get yours before Christmas too. Unless I get one from the second batch before Meze ships out the complete second batch

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    You're absolutely right, I won't remove my opinion on the QC. But I do want to explain in the review why I emphasise on it regarding the Empyrean and not regarding the LCD-4 (even though I mention driver issues).

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    I agree, at one point in the review I also call it a design flaw. Because I think that's what it is. Again I agree. I've got an idea already how I can do this in my review. Will edit it tonight. :) Thank you for this good feedback, I appreciate that a lot.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    Thank you for your feedback. Might be worth mentioning that my LCD-4 started to have driver issues (bass distortion on the left driver) after I tried to replace the ear pads myself. The XC driver issues were the (in)famous crackling sounds of the diaphragm. I don't emphasise the lack of QC for...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    Thanks for sharing that! Why didn't you do it eventually? And did they tell you where you could get one?

    That would have been my next question indeed. I'll drop them an email and I'll share their reply in this topic. Thanks!

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    Is it easy to replace the faceplate of the V281? Currently got a silver one, but I'd like a black one.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    After going some back and forth between the dealer, distributor and Meze I just got an email from Mircea that he'll send me a replacement on Monday. They will investigate how this could have happened after I've returned my unit. For now I should try to forget about it and enjoy them :) Edit: as...

    No witch hunt, just expressing my opinion and genuine interest in where his enthusiasm was coming from. *Back to lurking mode*

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    I can see why you're proud and I fully understand that! But imo it's just a bit unfair to advice people in buying something very expensive based on pride and not so much on listening impressions.
