So this first piece is not so budget, but it’s cool! Based on Elite, Meze’s flagship headphone, the new EPOQUE headphone is available as a limited-edition product inspired by one of the most celebrated artistic trends, Art Nouveau. Only 100 units will be produced worldwide to honor one of the world’s most renowned artistic styles.

CNC-milled aluminum is utilized to make the headphone frame, which is finished in shades of grey. Curves that resemble flowers and stems are hand-painted on the cups and the headband in addition to the carbon fiber, inspired by Art Nouveau paintings and architectural designs. Every piece takes more than a day to create.

The EPOQUE is created for fans of music, as well as art collectors and audiophiles. It is now available for $5000 on mezeaudio.com and in selected shops.
