Audeze Penrose Receives Near Perfect Score From Techaeris

January 20, 2021

"Using the Audeze Penrose X is pretty simple. Plug the USB dongle into a free port on your Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or PC. Hold the power button on the headset, it will connect to the dongle, and you’re good to go. To connect to a smartphone or your PC via Bluetooth, press the multi-function button to toggle to Bluetooth mode, then double click the power button to begin pairing. Find the Penrose headset in your Bluetooth settings, and you’ll be connected."

"As you know by now, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is one of my go-to games for testing gaming headsets on the Xbox Series X. Like the Mobius, the level of immersion was just that much greater with the already excellent sound design and the subtle movements of sound while turning my head even slightly made the game that much more enjoyable. Other games I play regularly, like the Forza series, Tetris Connected, and Gears 5, were equally fantastic sounding with the Audeze Penrose X."

"The Audeze Penrose X gaming headset is a great sounding headset for the Xbox One, Series X, PC, and mobile gaming. It also works great for movie and music enjoyment when you want a listening experience without bothering others. Sure it’s a bit of an inconvenience to have to use a dongle, but it does allow for wider Xbox/PC compatibility. At the end of the day, it’s simply a more affordable version of the Audeze Mobius minus the 3D head tracking and with a slightly better microphone experience."
