What customers say about "Key Specs"
Meze Audio 99 Classics Over-ear headphones
  • The sound is just south of neutral with excellent dynamics and a boatload of details.
  • I couldn't believe sound separation voice clarity and soundstage.everyone should experience these headphones.
  • Nice laid back sound signature with a slight bass boost without overpowering the mids or highs.
  • The sound signature isn’t the one I wanted. The highs don’t have that airy quality I like.
  • The only negative I've seen is that they're so sensitive, that it's easy to send them too much power.
Meze Audio 99 Neo Over-ear headphones
  • Base is very accented. Base is a little boomy to be honest. EQ that out, and you're golden.
  • Very clear and detailed sound to my ears, I feel like I can hear each of the strings in a guitar vibrate and each of the fingers sticking each string.
  • Noise isolation is pretty good for this type of headphones.
  • Fantastic overall sound. The bass is the standout. It's punchy, with well-defined transients and has impact without being "boomy".
  • Bass is too boomy in these headphones. Also highs little recessed.

Meze Audio 99 Classics Over-ear headphones
  • These are the first headphones I’ve had in a long time that are closed, lightweight, and require no additional amplification.
  • The workmanship is admirable and the aesthetics are unquestionably gorgeous. The final product is extremely lightweight and durable.
  • Lovely design. Looks beautiful in person. They are very light. More than comfortable when worn.
  • The whole headphones is so light yet the sound is heavily present.
  • They are too small in my opinion and put too much pressure on your ears, especially the top of your ears.
Meze Audio 99 Neo Over-ear headphones
  • Build quality is top notch, I mean top of tops. This thing is an elegant, light tank.
  • Headphones are super light and I can't feel them on my head.
  • They're comfortable, light, have good isolation from outside sound, and look stylish.
  • The best I've ever had. very comfortable, flawless construction, great design.
  • They are a bit small and don't feel luxurious in the way some other brands' earpads might feel.

What customers say about "Features"
Meze Audio 99 Classics Over-ear headphones
  • When I put these headphones on the first time, I was thrilled. They did not require me to fiddle with them to get them to fit nicely around my head.
  • They're comfortable for 8+hour days, even with glasses with thick frames.
  • The ability to plug in different lengths of cable is pretty handy.
  • The newest earpads are very spacious and soft and the self-adjusting headband is fabulous. No faults here.
  • The only negative to these headphones is that they use two, mono 3.5mm plugs instead of a single stereo 3.5mm.
Meze Audio 99 Neo Over-ear headphones
  • Earpads are very nice, not too soft, hold their shape but very comfy.
  • Headband, while not very much padded, very comfy and don't pressure.
  • Kevlar cable is great as it very durable and long enough to any king of use.
  • The comfort and look of them is obviously some of the main focal points to these cans.
  • When the metal part vibrates due to getting struck/rubbed against, or simply moving your head too much creates a resonance that's a bit annoying.
