“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
INSPIRED BY ROMANIAN LORE
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 day-to-day life in the form of harmoniously tuned audio.
ADVAR is a piece of visual and sound art in its own rights, ready to unravel its mysteries piece by piece, with each listening.
SOUND THAT TRANSCENDS THE ORDINARY
With an endearing sound quality that matches various listening preferences, ADVAR delivers audible finesse that leaves no room for compromise.
Inside the shell, a precisely tuned 10.2 mm single dynamic driver creates a warm, dynamic presentation that stays true to Meze Audio’s already established signature sound. The diaphragm offers impressive control all across the frequency range, leaving room to a smooth, velvet-like sound.
Detail wasn’t sacrificed – ADVAR will unveil particularities with incredible accuracy, giving life to new, surprising notes waiting to be discovered in your favorite songs.
ADVAR is easy to drive and pairs well with any device, thanks to its high sensitivity and low impedance. It provides accuracy and fidelity from 10hZ to 30kHz, offering you a mesmerizing listening experience.
A SILHOUETTE INSPIRED BY
With a form inspired from the rounded surface of raw hematite and intricate curves sculpted with care, the stainless steel shell features an ergonomically contoured design that allows the earphones to be inserted and removed with ease.
Our long-term search for the optimal fit has led to a rock-solid shape that ensures the highest stability. The housing rests lightly on the ear and, together with the over-ear hooks, reduces discomfort during longer listening sessions. The sinuous design helps enhance the noise isolating properties of the earphone.
Ear tips were carefully selected to provide an optimum, airtight fit, and conform easily to your ear’s shape. Developed by Final Audio, the Type E model paired with Advar also brings an improvement to bass tones and reduces harsh tones in the high frequency range.
AN EXPRESSION OF OUR
The secular forests from Maramures, the views from the mountain tops, the whisper of natural springs are what inspire us to create. Throughout history, countrymen from this land made use of intricate ancestral symbols carved in wood, passed on from generation to generation, to protect their sacred space.
The outer circles are similar to our representation of the “hora”, a traditional dance that carries a cosmic symbolism to Romanians – the circle of people united in hand represents a dance of the planets around the Sun, a magical union of the tangible with the spiritual. In the center of the circle, the Sun itself. Protector against darkness, a source of light that enables all things to thrive and grow.
This hallmark that accompanies Advar is placed here to reveal a piece of the one thing that makes us most unique – our Maramures-born soul.
