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.
As locals of Maramures region, our philosophy of life is intertwined with the secular forests that surround us, and we are taught to appreciate and respect this craft from the youngest age. With Primal, we took up this deep-rooted skill and shaped it into a new perspective on headphone design.
Each wooden frame has been meticulously carved, 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 109 Primal is a testament to our dedication to quality craftsmanship, offering an audio experience that marries natural beauty and timeless elegance, all in the palm of your hand.
A cherished addition to our Art Gallery collection, Primal is a special edition of our 109 PRO, recently celebrated as the Headphone of the Year 2023/2024 by the EISA committee.
The Harmony of Craftsmanship and Technology
Meet the Meze 109 PRO Primal—a special edition of the 109 Pro that brings you a marriage of masterful craftsmanship and top-tier audio engineering. Designed with hand-carved walnut earcups and featuring Meze’s exclusive 109 series Dual Membrane Diaphragm, these headphones are a testament to both time-honored tradition and cutting-edge innovation.
Craftsmanship in every cup
Each pair showcases exquisitely hand-carved earcups—chiseled groove by groove and then delicately sanded. A coat of linseed oil finishes the process, sealing the wood’s natural, matte texture and highlighting the captivating color and grain.
It’s what’s inside that counts: Dual Membrane Diaphragm
In order to meet the acoustic goals set for the 109 PRO, Meze focused their R&D efforts on materials research, looking for the perfect balance between diaphragm mass and stiffness that would maximize the sonic abilities of the headphone. Their search led to developing the 109 series Dual Membrane Diaphragm—a combination of Beryllium-coated polymer, cellulose, carbon fiber composite, and copper-zinc alloy.
Versatility you can count on
What’s the point of owning a masterpiece if it only works in a gallery? At only 40Ω of impedance, the 109 PRO Primal is easy to drive from a range of audio sources—from your smartphone to complete home audio setups.
Carbon fiber headband, dark walnut wood earcups, zinc and manganese steel components, and vegan leather headband—luxurious materials that are light on your head but heavy on durability. Plus, the soft velour earpads ensure that your ears stay cozy through binge-listening sessions.
Designed for the long haul
Worried about those long listening sessions when time just seems to slip away? Thanks to lightweight materials like carbon fiber and vegan leather, these headphones weigh just ~375 g (13 oz) without cables. That ensures the Meze 109 PRO Primal remains comfortable even when the clock strikes midnight.
