Discover the Primal experience – Meze’s invitation to a world where high-end sound meets the rawness of nature.

Meze’s handcrafted products may take a little extra time for delivery, as quality craftsmanship takes time.

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, Meze’s philosophy of life is intertwined with the secular forests that surround us, and they are taught to appreciate and respect this craft from the youngest age. With Primal, they took up this deep-rooted skill and shaped it into a new perspective on headphone design.

Each wooden frame has been meticulously chiseled, 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 Meze’s Art Gallery collection, Primal is a special edition of 109 PRO, recently celebrated as the Headphone of the Year 2023/2024 by the EISA committee.

Key features

  • In order to meet the acoustic goals set for the 109 PRO, Meze focused our 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.
  • Acoustic design at its best – the spider-shaped structure and the acoustically transparent grill inside the ear-cup expose the driver from both sides, creating our most open pattern to date.
  • Velour cushions comfortably surround the ears, providing the optimal seal to create natural sound. As velour is far softer and more breathable than leather, it also prevents sweat and overheating during lengthy listening sessions.
  • The 109 PRO is all about comfort – from the structural design of the headphone to the choice of materials, all decisions were carefully made to ensure the final product rises to our highest standard, in terms of ergonomics. With this perspective in mind, Meze combined walnut wood, zinc, manganese steel and vegan leather in a comfortable, lightweight, yet highly durable structure.
  • Carefully tuned by their in-house engineering team, 109 PRO offers emotionally engaging sound with great detail, clarity and just the right amount of punch.

Its organic character, paired with superior dynamics, excellent imaging, and full-bodied vocals bring soul-stirring details to life. Besides, it’s easy to drive from most devices, whether we’re talking portable sources or intricate home setups.

In true Meze Audio fashion, the 109 PRO blends together carefully selected materials such as walnut wood, zinc, manganese steel, assembled together using only nuts and bolts, making this headphone fully and endlessly serviceable.
