Great sound quality, though tends to be a tad darker sounding. Easy to listen on medium volume for up to 3 hours. Very good instrument separation, and good spacial feel. I wouldn't call this a very analytical headphone, but one for simply enjoying music. It's also a hoot when watching movies!
Pros: Comfortable, non-fatiguing, very good bass, instrument separation good.
Cons: A bit too dark, you may need to play with your EQ, depending on your musical tastes.

A wonderful set but only fully realized with good components. I was using the jack on my Cambridge Edge A Integrated. Some songs were stunning but others, meh. When I upgraded to a dedicated headphone DAC/Amp (Hugo TT2) ...oh my goodness

I've tried everything from the Audeze LCD-4z to the Sennheiser HD800s and still the Empyreans truly impressed me. While the HD800 has better distance to the soundstage and the LCD-4Z has better bass oomph. The Empyreans carve their own niche in that they do EVERYTHING well and enjoyably. They are not harsh or analytical. They're the flagship you can hand to anyone and they'll be truly impressed, audiophiles or not. The quality of the headset is sublime and you can tell it is a product that will last for ages even with regular use. The sound quality is great for any track from a symphony to a garage rap track and anything in-between. I can easily say I will probably be using these every single day despite having dozens of high-end choices in my repertoire and that should say all you need to know. Despite being newer to the headphone game, Meze has proven themselves able to go toe-to-toe with headsets widely considered to be the best of the best.
Pros: Exceptional Sound quality Very comfortable to use for long sessions Superb build quality Changeable ear pads offer two different styled sound signatures right out of the box Excellent Carrying case
Cons: Expensive (but worth the price more than others in its range) Not the most powerful bass response Significant others might miss you for hours or days at a time after you buy this

I have the headphones for about 2 weeks and I like them very much, very good product for all kinds of music.the piano and other instruments sound natural. They are a little more relaxed then Focals with very good base which affects the whole spectrum of music. The treble is a little more recessed not in your face and not bright at all. This is very good product. Enjoy your music.

A nice alternative to the other TOTL headphones out. Many like the Abyss, Utopia,LCD4 can be a little hot in the treble. The Meze have gobs of detail, but the treble is a little lower in volume. Not rolled off, just a little pulled back. I have all of the above mentioned headphones, and I am happily adding the Empyrean to my collection. Nice all rounder with slightly enhanced bass and a sound stage that just seems right. But of all the afore mentioned headphones, I like the vocals on the Empyrean. It is their greatest quality in my opinion. Male and female vocals just sound natural.
Pros: Sound stage, bass, vocals
Cons: Some loss of sparkle, but if you are sensitive to highs or listen to most modern music, this may not be a negative.
