Discover the Primal Experience
Born from the legacy of the original 109 PRO, Primal is an exploration of organic shapes and forms that tell a story of unwavering dedication, artistry, and craftsmanship. Each wooden frame has been meticulously chiseled, groove by groove, and delicately sanded to ensure the smoothest feel. Linseed oil is then applied to grace the sculpted frames. This final touch infuses the wood with a natural, matte texture that accentuates its grain and restore its innate, captivating color. The first dynamic open-back headphone from Meze Audio, 109 PRO is a demonstration of Meze’s commitment to go beyond the faithful reproduction of sound to deliver pure emotion.

Exploring New Horizons, Starting With The Basics
In a world of fast-paced technology, Meze bet on proven fundamentals. The new 50mm dynamic driver, assembled and tuned with ultimate precision, allowed them to push the boundaries of speed, accuracy, and dynamic range.
The diaphragm is the heart of the headphone, producing the waves our brains ultimately perceive as sound. In order to meet the acoustic goals, Meze set for the 109 PRO, they focused their R&D efforts on materials research, looking for the perfect balance between mass and stiffness that would maximize the sonic abilities of the headphone. Their search led to developing the 109 series Dual-Composite Diaphragm – a combination of Beryllium-coated polymer, cellulose + carbon fiber composite and copper-zinc alloy.
Through its open-back design, Meze wanted the 109 PRO to be vivid and exciting, empowering the listener to connect with music on a deeper level. Carefully tuned by Meze’s in-house engineering team, it offers emotionally engaging sound with great detail, clarity, and just the right amount of punch. Its organic character, paired with superior dynamics, excellent imaging, and full-bodied vocals bring soul-stirring details to life. Besides, it’s easy to drive from most devices, whether it be portable sources or intricate home setups.
Superior Build Equals Superior Experience
The 109 PRO is all about comfort – from the structural design of the headphones to the choice of materials, all decisions were carefully made to ensure the final product rises to Meze’s highest standard, in terms of ergonomics. Once placed on your head, the headphones have to become unnoticeable, leaving you with nothing but the music. With this perspective in mind, Meze combined walnut wood, zinc, manganese steel, and vegan leather in a comfortable, lightweight, yet highly durable structure.
Sustainably Harvested Wood
The black walnut wood Meze uses for their headphones comes strictly from sources with a certificate of origin, harvested from mature trees that have reached the end of their life cycle. This way, the environment is being protected, leaving room for new life, while the old trees are shining once again, in the shape of a Meze headphone.
Made With Longevity in Mind
The 109 PRO is crafted with utmost care for sustainability. As our choices of today can have a great impact in the world of tomorrow, Meze designs products that last. They believe that a longer product lifespan means a smaller footprint. Following this philosophy, the 109 PRO can be taken apart and serviced endlessly if ever needed, which can extend the life of the product beyond limit.
