Blog: High End Munich 2019 – Picture Report Part 2



Even though they don’t really have any personal audio offerings, I always visit their room at the show

Tubes, power output dials and green logo’s. do we need more?

Meze Audio

Very popular at the show and that’s no surprise with headphones such as the 99Classics and the Empyrean.

It seems I forgot to take pictures of the Rai Penta IEM, but we’ve of course reviewed that already. so let me share you the coolest headphone stand in world. Made in Russia

That Empyrean grill…mmmm….

Mr Speakers

It’s always good seeing Dan and of course Andrew who joined the team recently.

The synergy between the iBasso DX220 and the Mr Speakers Ether 2 headphones is really good.

The VOCE is one headphone that’s high up on my list

Too bad the listening room was using blue lighting. The interesting news here were the new MrSpeakers Ether 2 pads which are now replaceable.

The pads are really easy to change and I think Dan told me they will “hold” for 100 pad swaps.

There are two different types of pads (suede and perforated leather), with a different sound signature. And the best part? They only cost $89USD!!


It’s Linus who review the Brooklyn DAC+ for us and he really loved it (so do I)

Now Mytek is back with a further developed version of this unit with an integrated streamer: the Brooklyn Bridge.

We’re checking if we can get that in for review. I’m still fascinated by the Manhattan II.

    Hi Lieven, thanks for posting a picture of one of our Spirit Torino headphones on your Part 2 Munich High End report. Just for the record, the model in the picture is a single driver Superleggera, not a Twin Pulse. You can check out the different models on our website, if you so wish. Cheers!

    I think IEM cables will be the next big thing.
