Exciting news! In collaboration with Rinaro Isodynamics, we proudly introduce our third model: LIRIC.

LIRIC harnesses Rinaro's state-of-the-art technology, meticulously re-engineered for everyday use. The MZ4 Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver, meticulously scaled down and finely tuned, delivers an audio experience on par with its larger counterparts found in the Empyrean and Elite models.

When combined with its closed-back design, LIRIC effortlessly preserves the original clarity and emotional impact of your cherished music while offering enhanced sound and reduced external noise. Every driver is meticulously hand-assembled and thoroughly tested at Rinaro's industrial facility in Ukraine.


“In our folklore, lyricism is found in the smallest of details, from odes to poems, from flute songs to the melismatic tunes of the “doina” (a style of voice singing specific to Romania). Our first closed-back isodynamic headphone was born out of love for music, poetry, and the indisputable attachment we have to our country’s culture.

We’ve been wanting to do a portable planar for a while, and following two successful collaborations with Rinaro, it was a natural next step. Naming it LIRIC was not a game of chance. It was an ideal metaphor to paint the authentic, vivid and poetic sound disguised behind its ethereal silhouette.”
