Inspired by Romanian Lore

For the archaic civilizations of Romania, an ADVAR was similar to a talisman or amulet –believed to be all powerful, it was a symbol of the absolute meant to bring blessing to those who wear it.

As descendants of ancient civilizations, we made it our mission to preserve the essence of our culture and pass it on. Capturing that very essence, this IEM is ready to bring balance to the day-to-day life in the form of harmoniously tuned audio.

ADVAR is a piece of visual and sound art in its own rights, ready to unravel its mysteries piece by piece, with each listening.

Sound that Transcends the Ordinary

With an endearing sound quality that matches various listening preferences, ADVAR delivers audible finesse that leaves no room for compromise.

Inside the shell, a precisely tuned 10.2 mm single dynamic driver creates a warm, dynamic presentation that stays true to Meze Audio’s already established signature sound. The diaphragm offers impressive control all across the frequency range, leaving room to a smooth, velvet-like sound.

Detail wasn’t sacrificed – ADVAR will unveil particularities with incredible accuracy, giving life to new, surprising notes waiting to be discovered in your favorite songs.

ADVAR is easy to drive and pairs well with any device, thanks to its high sensitivity and low impedance. It provides accuracy and fidelity from 10hZ to 30kHz, offering you a mesmerizing listening experience.

A Silhouette Inspired by Natural Patterns

With a form inspired from the rounded surface of raw hematite and intricate curves sculpted with care, the stainless-steel shell features an ergonomically contoured design that allows the earphones to be inserted and removed with ease.

Our long-term search for the optimal fit has led to a rock-solid shape that ensures the highest stability. The housing rests lightly on the ear and, together with the over-ear hooks, reduces discomfort during longer listening sessions. The sinuous design helps enhance the noise isolating properties of the earphone.

Ear tips were carefully selected to provide an optimum, airtight fit and conform easily to your ear’s shape. Developed by Final Audio, the Type E model paired with Advar also brings an improvement to bass tones and reduces harsh tones in the high frequency range.

Really enjoy

I really enjoy these iem's. They have amazing deep tight bass. They are warm, byt the mids and highs are detailed. Fun iem's to listen to. They have become a favorite.


I remember when I first tried the Campfire Andromeda (OG) years ago. I had long been into high end headphones, but was wading into better IEMs. I could've nitpicked, but they were so engaging overall. After a while, though, the fit for me just wasn't there and tonality wasn't what I was looking for long term. A gazillion attempts later at my brain wanting technicalities, but my heart wanting engagement, while my ears really didn't want hot spots after 12 minutes, I, a bit reluctantly, bought the Advar. Because I'd developed so much acuity on ranges, at first I felt like there was a bit of a gap in the upper mid to lower treble and then a tiny spike/splash in the treble. But then, something happened. Brain burn in, whatever. At any price range under $2k, the enjoyment to comfort factor has never been higher for me. It's just so dang fun and engaging. It has just enough dynamics / technicalities that I still appreciate acoustic and tight jazz. But its overall presentation is where this thing sings.

I do use the upgraded 4.4mm Meze cable, which is fantastic. I initially used the Questyle M15, which was first impression amazing. Then I plugged in desktop and it just opened up like crazy. So, I ended up with the Gryphon, because if you do A/B with the M15, you'll definitely notice a difference in soundstage. It truly makes the Advar sound more like headphones. In fact, I'd say they sound more like a better tuned LCD2 Closed (no wonky mids) when doing so. So, that's my $.02. I'm not dumb enough to say "end game", but this one will certainly "pause" my game longer than anything ever has due to sound and comfort, plain and simple.
