An expression of Meze Audio’s Romanian heritage
“When we developed ADVAR, our goal was to create something meaningful. A piece of audio that’s artful, spiritual, and timeless. I think the result we achieved reflects the spirit of Meze Audio so well.” – Antonio Meze, Lead Designer & Founder, Meze Audio.

For the archaic civilizations of Romania, an ADVAR was similar to a talisman or amulet – believed to be all powerful, it was a symbol of the absolute meant to bring blessing to those who wear it. As descendants of ancient civilizations, we made it our mission to preserve the essence of our culture and pass it on.

Capturing that very essence, this IEM is ready to bring balance to the day-to-day life in the form of harmoniously tuned audio.

A silhouette inspired by natural patterns
On the outside, the solid stainless-steel chassis design was inspired by various raw shapes found in nature, such as the rounded surface of minerals like hematite. Following the same comfort principles as all other Meze Audio products, this sinuous, ergonomically contoured shape allows the earphones to be inserted and removed with ease, reducing discomfort during longer listening sessions.

Meze Audio’s ADVAR will be available worldwide starting April 15th, retailing for $699 / €699 / £582.
