Meze Audio’s Rai Solo In-Ear Monitors Offer Audiophile Performance at Affordable Prices

Romanian headphone specialists, Meze Audio, has released its newest addition to the Rai IEM family, the Rai Solo promising its users an affordable option for audiophile grade in-ear monitors.

This release follows the successful launch of the Rai Penta IEMs and Meze Audio says it is targetting the “entry-level audiophile” with the stainless steel-bodied Solo.

The Meze Rai Solo features the same soft edges as seen on the Rai Penta and designed to present a fun, neutral but well refined and controlled sound signature, according to the company.

The Rai Solo boasts a frequency response of 18hz-22kHz from its refined electrodynamic driver. The membrane of the 9.2mm UPM driver itself is electrically conductive, and therefore no wires are attached to the diaphragm. The result, we are told, is symmetric pistonic motion through its entire movement, without the unbalance created by wires.

Antonio Meze, founder and lead designer at Meze Audio, told StereoNET:

Rai Solo has been at the origin of the entire Rai IEM family, so it shares a lot of design philosophy DNA with the flagship, Rai Penta. It was supposed to be released ahead of Rai Penta, but we took our time to perfect it for production. The result is a high value, yet still affordable, IEM.

The Meze Audio Rai Solo comes with standard MMCX sockets and a detachable MMCX 1.3m Silver Plated Cable.

Available now, the Meze Audio Rai Solo IEMs sell locally for $399 RRP.
