ARCHITECTURE OF THE ISODYNAMIC® HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER

FRAME
Fiberglass infused ABS
RINARO ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM
Weighing only 0.16 g while
having 4650 mm² of active area.
HYBRID MAGNET ARRAY
Symmetrically placed on each side of the diaphragm, our neodymium magnets are specifically arranged into a Hybrid Array to create efficient Isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface.

HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER ADVANTAGES

Combines two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm delivering more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear.

ACCURATE REPRODUCTION
Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range LIGHTWEIGHT
Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions ERGONOMIC SHAPE
Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO
Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz ULTRA EFFICIENT
100db@1mw/1kHz High performance without needing amplification PATENT PENDING ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER
World's first in planar magnetic headphones
Over 30 years of research and development have led to the creation of the first Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver. Meze Audio have collaborated with Rinaro to create a new standard in planar magnetic audio, the resulting technology being one of the lightest and most advanced planar magnetic drivers on the market.
The Empyrean Driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils, their unique shapes allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear. This unique combination generates an increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range and improves imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections.

AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM

One of the problems with conventional planar magnetic arrays is coming from reflected signals entering the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging.
Combining different voice coil configurations makes it possible to create a better sound intensity distribution across the sound wavefront at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal.

ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM MATERIAL
The diaphragm is manufactured from a custom developed isotropic thermally stabilized polymer with a conductive layer. Through unique processing methods, an ultralight yet rigid diaphragm has been achieved. SWITCHBACK COIL
The switchback coil is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies and is positioned in the upper part of the driver. SPIRAL COIL
The spiral coil is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies and is positioned directly over the ear canal enabling more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delays.

AN ERGONOMIC APPROACH LEADS TO A NEW WAY OF THINKING

Anatomically designed ovate earcups
Anthropometric earpad design

To create an audiophile headphone that is powerful yet light the driver needed to maximize power output while reducing weight as much as possible.

Weight was minimized by optimizing a magnet structure around an ovoid shape that fits the ear more closely. Power output was increased through the use of a completely bespoke coil and magnet array design that optimized the active usable area of the driver within its ovoid shape.

ISOMAGNETIC® EARCUP TO EARPAD COUPLING TECHNOLOGY

An innovative feature is the Isomagnetic® ear cup attachment which utilizes the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to hold the ear cup in place whilst also redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver and improving driver efficiency.

Magnetic field shielding

The ferromagnetic ear pads decrease the magnetic stray field affecting the listeners head.

Increase in driver efficiency

Patented ferromagnetic plates channel the magnetic field back into the driver, increasing output.

Invisible locking system

Innovative use of the magnetic field of the drivers to fix the earcups in place.

STRAY FIELD REDUCTION FROM ISOMAGNETIC® PLATE COUPLING

Patented ferromagnetic plates channel the demagnetizing field back into the driver increasing efficiency by 1db or 12% and deflect 95% of stray fields away from the head.

ISODYNAMIC DRIVER MANUFACTURED BY RINARO

Each driver has been hand assembled and tested in an industrial facility in Ukraine.
