Meze – Rai Penta
The Rai Penta is Meze’s flagship in-ear. It is a multi-driver hybrid set-up that immediately impresses with its looks, the ergonomic shape as well as the solid built quality. Soundwise, The Rai Penta is superbly balanced and offers a great wide soundstage. But then, it is quite a pleaser, with a splendid and rich signature. Not too bold though, just right to make you smile! The Rai Penta comes with a 3,5mm cable and on demand with a free extra 2,5mm balanced cable.

Ready for hi-res sound
Because of its low impedance and great sensitivity, the Meze Rai Penta may be used with almost any device, but in order to fully appreciate the potential of its carefully calibrated driver array, we suggest using a high resolution input source. The result is a very high resolution and exceeds any certification or norm that has been established.
A well-balanced sound character with excellent micro-detailing offers unmatched realism over a broad frequency range, spanning 4Hz to 45 kHz, and across the whole frequency range.
Superb fit? Yes, we can!
The Rai Penta is the pinnacle of ergonomics. It’s all about comfort, it’s light and airy, it fits well.
No doubt: the more comfortable the in-ear monitor, the better the listening experience. Serious audiophiles will spend hours upon hours immersed in their favorite music collection.
In order to provide comfort and extended listening sessions, we created the Rai Penta IEMs. This allows you and your tunes to have a fully immersive experience in the world of music.
Extreme care is taken to every detail: circular, soft edges that are intended to hug the natural contours of one’s ear and fit properly.
Penta means five drivers
Through the use of Penta Hybrid technology, we are able to provide harmonized sound frequencies without the need to compensate for phase problems. Sound from the transducers must travel through the housing, nozzle, and eartip assembly before it can reach your eardrums. The extremely specific and exact length of each sound tube, which essentially controls the air volume in front of each driver in particular, allows for the smooth operation of five drivers. In comparison to conventional plastic tube and dampener systems, which are frequently used in multi-driver assemblies, our design removes flaws that may be found in these systems.
A chassis made entirely of metal
The high-precision CNC aluminum chassis, which has been carefully machined from solid aluminum, provides an ideal environment for the music to be properly directed to the inner ear directly and without distortion. Moreover, airflow management, achieved via our highly adjusted PES design in front and behind the driver assembly, aids in the regulation of internal chamber pressure.
A superb in-ear deserves superb cables
The use of silver-plated copper wires and beautifully carved metal plug shells guarantees that the cable assembly will remain robust and dependable for a long period. There are four wires. Each wire is made up of a total of 20 litz strands. For the greatest connection and longevity, MMCX plugs are of the highest quality, with plug terminations that are rhodium plated.
On top of that, 4.4 balanced and 2.5 mm TRRS balanced connectors are available as additional accessories and are supplied separately. Braided cables (MMCX) are composed of silver plated copper custom wires and terminate in balanced connectors.

If you want to get the most out of your universal-fit in-ears, go for Tailormade custom eartips. As opposed to regular silicone or foam eartips, Tailormade eartips are made to fit exactly your ears and the in-ear model of your choice. This means better sound (due to better isolation), better fit and better comfort. Even more, Tailormade eartips are very durable and hygienic and you can use them with many in-ear models.
But even compared to fully customized IEMs, they are the smarter choice. As opposed to those, you can still share your universal-fit-in-ears with others – and even sell them, should you ever want to upgrade. In a word, Tailomade eartips combine the pros of universal-fit in-ears with custom-fit in-ears (these remain the best choice for the stage).
