MEZE 99 Neo review

The brand MEZE makes its devices pretty stylish. In the comparison MEZE 99 Classics vs 99 Neo, I offer you to analyze not only the outlook of the headphones but also their technical features responsible for the sound. These appliances are closed-back and over-ear. Although they look very modern, the headphones are wired.

Features

The frequency response of these devices is 15 Hz - 25 kHz. Another important feature is sensitivity, this technical characteristic is also identical for the MEZE headphones — 103 dB. There is a slight difference between their rates of impedance since it is 32 Ohm in the case with MEZE 99 Classics and 26 Ohm in the case with MEZE 99 Neo.

Sound

The treble produced by MEZE 99 Classics has a crisp and airy appeal. There is a lot of bass, and although it is not the most controllable, and sometimes even a little weak, it sounds very natural.

MEZE 99 Neo has a warm, naturally balanced sound. Music tends to sound more 2D than 3D which says about an average spaciness presentation.

Comfort and design

Their construction is pretty similar, however, the color of MEZE 99 Classics makes the design of the device extraordinary. These headphones are only 10 g heavier than the other pair. The weight of 99 Classics is 260 g, while the model 99 Neo has 250 g. They are quite light compared to other devices with an over-ear design.

You can adjust the headband to make it maximum comfortable. These devices are suitable for those who are going to make calls using headphones since they have an in-line microphone. The detachable wire that comes with these devices has a different length. MEZE 99 Classics has a 300 cm long wire, whilst MEZE 99 Neo has a 150 long cable.
