Last winter i purchased an jacket by Puma which up until recently i had no idea that the interior pocket is so small because it was intended to be used either with a smartphone or an MP3/MP4 player and to make things even easier for the person wearing it the guys over at Puma also placed a cord holder close to the neck. Of course Puma is not the only brand to have made such additions to their jacket line but i guess what I’m trying to say is that wired headphones and earphones are obviously much more popular than what some people think. Personally although I’ve used and tested dozens of models (some of which were really good) my quest for the one that will earn a permanent spot in my desk drawer is still ongoing. Meze is a rather new player focused in the manufacture of quality headphones and earphones and since all of us really like wood based ones we decided to take a thorough look on their latest 11 Deco Earphones With Mic.
At Meze we strive to create high quality wood headphones and wood earphones. Our brand fits the high end headphones due to their sound quality and stylish design. Our aim is to deliver perfect sound reproduction to satisfy both regular music lovers and audiophiles. The Classics headphones range is built on the classical values of clarity, balance and harmony.
The somewhat large 8mm Neodymium drivers used in the Meze 11 Deco feature a frequency response of 17Hz-25KHz, sensitivity of 101db (1+2db) and 14Ohm impedance so at least specs-wise they seem a step up from what we are used to seeing. For the enclosure material Meze has chosen to use beech wood which doesn't only look and feel nice but also because it helps produce warmer sound. Meze has also placed an in-line microphone allowing you to make calls with Android and iOS compatible devices but we no matter how hard we looked we couldn't find any information regarding its specifications anywhere (we will ask Meze to see if they can provide that for us). So although manufactured by a very new player in the market like Meze the 11 Deco Earphones with Mic look very promising but since it wouldn't be the first time that we've been "deceived" by looks let’s take a closer look.
