Meze 99 Classics


The Meze 99 Classics are handsomely designed headphones that deliver an exciting audio experience.

Excellent audio performance with articulate highs and ideal bass response. Comfortable fit. Lots of accessories, including detachable cables with inline remote controls.

Expensive. Bulky design not necessarily ideal for mobile use.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the 99 Classics deliver a perfect balance of bass depth and high frequency definition. The lows on this track sound truly powerful—there's definitely...

Meze 99 Classics Headphones Review


It's easy to be distracted by the Meze 99 Classics' good looks, but they're also great-sounding headphones.

Handsome design; Extraordinary build quality; Rich sound

Doesn’t fold for compact storage

The pick of the bunch but not quite flawless


I recently decided to invest in a new pair of quality headphones and decided to visit my local Richer Sounds as I knew I could listen and compare the different models they had in stock. I listened to all the models available, each time listening to the...

Meze 99 Classics


Beautiful to look at and a very enjoyable sound that exceeds its price. It's not a Sennheiser HD800s however one I am certainly proud to have as part of my collection

Best in class - wih a pad change


I read all of the original 'professional' online reviews for these headphones that were so positive about them. However Meze changed the ear pads to larger ones and this changed the frequency response massively. I tried them with the new pads and found...

Great looking, great sounding


Beautifully crafted and well-build, terrific sound, outstanding value for money. Solid bass presence without being overbearing, smooth mids and reasonably detailed highs - but warm and fun, rather than analytical. Suitable for most any genre I've...

Big sound.


Bought early December together with a Dragonfly Red. This combination gives an excellent result from my iPhone 8plus. By the way, you'll need to get the Apple Camera adaptor (£39) as Dragonfly don't yet make one for iOS.

Beautiful quality and sound


Bought about a month ago, they really look stunning, have lots of lovely little design features, comfortable, doesn't even feel like you're wearing them. Nicely packaged too, no styrofoam or pellets, just the case in a nice box. Would infinitely...

A great listen!


Build: Solid construction. Not very sure where to hold when plugging the wires into the headphones. Great looks, but might be too eye catching to use outdoors. Usage: Comfortable, huge cups. Amazing sound. Clear and dynamic with a fairly wide...

Fantastic pair of headphones


Purchased over a week ago, well run in. I have to say these cans sound fantastic whatever you throw at them. Listening from a Meridian DAC and a Hi Res player(portable). I am 're-listening' to music that just sounds like nothing I have heard before,...
