The 99 Classics from Meze are one of the most fun headphones on the market to listen to. The 99 Classics are not wholly neutral and which is what we like about them. They have a natural sound with some coloured bass that gives them a truly addictive sound. The 99 Classics are seriously hard to put down and have become office favourites at headphones.com. The immaculate design of the 99 Classics really make them pop as well, making heads turn as soon as you walk into a room.There is a trend in the high-end headphone industry to make headphones looking luxurious while the sound quality does not match the price point. The 99 Classics not only look amazing, they sound far and above how they should at their price point. If you like headphones with a clean, detailed natural sound and punchy bass that isn't over the top these are the headphones for you.

Just like finger prints, wood grain is as unique, thus making each pair of Meze Headphone a one of a kind. You will love how they feel in your hands. Sturdy built and precise assembly. The ear cups are made with a satin finished wood grain. Put them on, sit back, and enjoy your favorite sound of plucked strings, upbeat grooves or thumping beats while looking classy.

Meze has offered something really cool with the 99 Classics by making them fully serviceable. CNC carved wood ear cups, cast zinc alloy hardware with electroplated coating, stamped manganese spring steel headband, memory foam and soft PU leather are the materials your hands and eyes will get to enjoy. No plastic here for you to see. Besides the usual warranty everybody is offering, Meze guarantees that the 99's are serviceable if any parts need to be replaced. Meze built these headphones to last for years to come and we here at headphones.com can't wait to see what will be coming in the furture for Meze.

"This...is an awesome all-around headphone...I've met the predecessor 88 Classics, which I found profoundly meh. But this new Meze 99 Classic is a whole 'nother story all together. This is a great headphone...The 99 Classic is not only terrific looking, it's well built to deliver the goods for a long time...Also prominent, but not necessarily obvious at first glance, it the fact that these cans are primarily screwed together and can be completely disassembled. Should anything ever go wrong with your Meze 99 Classics they can be repaired... Imaging is outstanding for a sealed headphone. The image doesn't move as far out from my head as some other open headphones, but width, depth, and image specificity seem very, very good. Dynamics are also quite good, though lacking the serious punch big planar magnetics can deliver with a powerful amplifier. On the other hand, the 99 Classics are very efficient, and an astonishing drive and dynamism can be had from a phone... The Meze 99 Classic is a ridiculously fun listen."

"There is not a hint of crappy plastics on these cans as far as I can see and looking into their design information and this does seem to be confirmed. They are comprised entirely of walnut wood, zinc, ABS, silicone and spring steel and finished with pleather and memory foam. Each component is user replaceable, and when I say each one I mean every single bit of the headphone from the headband to the cups, drivers, sockets, you name it... Despite its woody exterior, the 99 Classic has a very natural sounding tonality avoiding anything overtly warm and colored which is a welcome relief. I wouldn’t term it as a wholly neutral sound, there are some colorations in the warmish bass and forward vocal presence which gives it a very addictive musical presentation and pushes all the right buttons for relaxed and pleasurable listening... I wasn’t expecting much with the Meze 99 Classic woody, I actually believed it might be another more elaborate OEM. Boy, how wrong was I! I prefer this to the Momentums, the B&W P7’s and it gives the more established PM-3 a real run for its money. Meze has claimed some sort of technical redemption with these musical woodies and quite rightly they should be proud of the end product because they are a lot of fun... I hate getting carried away with hype but I will admit I do enjoy the 99 Classic more than my conservative values should really allow me."
