"I’m impressed with the nearly unrivaled versatility" Says Tech Up Your Life of Audeze Mobius

May 04, 2021

"Hailing from high-end headphone manufacturer Audeze, the Mobius is a top-shelf gaming headset. Onboard, you’ll find 3D audio and virtual 7.1 surround sound. Waves Nx head tracking comes standard. The Mobius works with PCs and consoles such as the PlayStation 4 (PS4), PS5, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series X. Since processing takes place in the headphones themselves, there’s little to no latency. A flexible, detachable microphone features noise attenuation alongside a mute button and volume controls. As such, it’s equally great for in-game voice chat as it is for office calls in Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, or Google Hangouts. And the Mobius is even Discord-certified."

"Outfitted with memory foam padding on the earcups as well as its headband, the Audeze Mobius gaming headphones remain comfortable even over hours of use. During a stress test of several hours, the Mobius didn’t begin to feel heavy or uncomfortable. The gaming cans are lightweight enough to feel food without feeling cheap or delicate. While you won’t want to chuck the Mobius headset around aggressively, it should be more than fine protected simply by the bundled soft carrying case."

"3D performance is shockingly good. Boasting Waves Nx technology, a virtual audio environment is established using head tracking. This allows the Mobius headset to simulate a virtual speaker environment. After I tapped the 3D audio button and centered it while facing my ultrawide gaming monitor, turning my head actually made audio louder in the headphone closer to the anchor point and lower in the opposite headphone. The effect was surprisingly lifelike, mimicking the experience of turning my head while listening to my 5.1 Dolby Atmos soundbar."

"Similarly, watching movies with the Mobius as a set of headphones proved a real treat. I enjoyed its virtual surround sound mode and 3D capabilities for watching films. “Crimson Peak” sounded absolutely magnificent through the Mobius. With its 3D sound on and 7.1 enabled, its epic score and impressive sound design were the best a headset can deliver. A creaking door off to the left of the screen actually emanated from that direction. Likewise, thunder rumbled convincingly from a virtual right rear surround sound speaker."

"Overall, I’m impressed with the nearly unrivaled versatility of the Audeze Mobius. Since using it, I’ve designated it my daily driver over my Logitech G933 Artemis. While it’s a gaming-first headset, the Mobius delivers audiophile-caliber performance in a set of cans that look classy enough for conference calls and business settings. A whole host of different audio profiles ranging from stereo to virtual 7.1 and an array of connectivity options ensure that regardless of your media or devices, the Mobius can handle whatever you throw at it. Spatial 3D proves immersive for movies and gaming alike."

"The price may be a bit steep for casual users at around $399. Battery life at around 4 hours is decent but not spectacular. While there are wireless modes, you lose out on any of the advanced gaming features. Onboard controls are convenient for switching modes and profiles, though it may become confusing which mode you’re in. Luckily, the headphones announce clearly what settings you’ve just changed, and the Audeze HQ app for PCs offers a visualization. Ultimately, the audiophile-quality performance and innovative spatial audio technology chisel the Mobius out as the best gaming headset that money can buy."
