Meze Audio 109 Pro Primal

Meze Audio
The open-back headphones. Limited Edition

Inspired by the legacy of the original 109 PRO, Primal is a journey into organic shapes and forms, showcasing our dedication, artistry, and craftsmanship.

As natives of the Maramures region, our lives are deeply connected to the ancient forests that surround us. From a young age, we are taught to appreciate and respect our craft. With Primal, we have harnessed these deep-rooted skills to create a new perspective on headphone design.

Each wooden frame is meticulously carved, groove by groove, and delicately sanded to ensure the smoothest finish. We then apply linseed oil to enhance the sculpted frames. This final touch gives the wood a natural, matte texture, highlighting its grain and restoring its innate, captivating color.

The 109 Primal is a testament to our commitment to quality craftsmanship, offering an audio experience that combines natural beauty with timeless elegance, all in the palm of your hand.

As a cherished addition to our Art Gallery collection, Primal is a special edition of our 109 PRO, recently honored as the Headphone of the Year 2023/2024 by the EISA committee.

High-end sound meets the rawness of nature.
The Primal Experience


Carefully tuned by our engineering team, 109 PRO offers emotionally engaging sound with great detail, clarity and just the right amount of punch. Its organic character, paired with superior dynamics, excellent imaging, and full-bodied vocals bring soul-stirring details to life. Besides, it’s easy to drive from most devices, whether we’re talking portable sources or intricate home setups.
Velour cushions comfortably surround the ears, providing the optimal seal to create natural sound. As velour is far softer and more breathable than leather, it also prevents sweat and overheating during lengthy listening sessions.
The self-adjusting headband spreads the weight out to deliver even pressure for any head shape and size.
The spider-shaped structure and the acoustically transparent grill inside the earcup expose the driver from both sides, creating our most open pattern to date.
