Romanian high-end audio company Meze Audio has released the Rai Solo in-ear monitor, which is a lower-priced version of Meze Audio's top-line Rai Penta IEM.

Meze Audio intends that its Rai Solo becomes the IEM of choice for entry-level audiophiles,’ said Christopher Strom, General Manager of Radiance AudioVisual, which distributes Meze in Australia. ‘The Rai Solo promises users an affordable way to immerse into a pure listening experience while enjoying the ergonomic elegant design that is typical of Meze products.’

The Rai Solo shares a lot of design philosophy DNA with the flagship, Rai Penta,’ said Antonio Meze, founder and lead designer at Meze Audio. ‘The two have a similar shape, with soft rounded edges that are designed to embrace the natural curves from one’s ear so they fit perfectly.’  The Rai Solo’s stainless steel body contains a dynamic driver with a UPM balanced piston membrane motion, encased in a durable and ergonomic sintered steel shell. Unlike most dynamic drivers, the UPM driver’s membrane is electrically conductive and therefore no wires are attached to it. ‘The result is a symmetric pistonic motion through its entire movement, without disturbance from the unbalance created by wires,’ Meze told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine.

Available now, the Meze Rai Solo comes with standard MMCX sockets and a detachable MMCX 1.3m Silver Plated Cable and sells for $399 (RRP).
