Meze Audio Alba Earbuds

Meze Audio Alba Are Stylish Wired In-Ear Headphones

You don’t hear much about wired headphones nowadays, since the industry has almost entirely gone wireless. But there’s still value in a wired experience, whether it’s a preference or even as a back-up for those days and times when your wireless headphones are dead and you have nowhere to recharge. The Meze Audio Alba are a new option in this space.

The Romanian brand has introduced these new in-ears, made of a combination of zinc alloy and anodized aluminum parts. They offer noise isolation and USB-C connectivity. They come with a 3.5mm cord with a gold-plated connector for connecting to devices that still have a port, or by using an adapter.

Hifi enthusiasts will love that the included USB-C adapter features a built-in DAC to boost sound quality and ensure a more immersive audio experience, says Meze Audio.

“It was a combination of factors that brought Alba into existence,” says Vlad Toca, Product Manager at Meze Audio. “Coming from a musical background, having maintained direct contact with our customers daily, and being an audiophile myself for the better part of a decade, really helped me understand the expectations for a complete and immersive listening experience.
