"The Mobius uses 360 audio to a new level. If you are familiar with the HyperX Orbit headset, Audeze is the company that created that experience. If you turn your head in any direction, the audio will stay stationary. Scanning at over 1000 times per second, this head-tracking experience is truly game-changing, especially since the technology is built directly into the headset. No software is necessary. You can experience this on any device you connect to with either Bluetooth, USB-C, or auxiliary."
"The closed-back Penrose headset itself is quite feature-rich, with its most notable and unique feature being its 100mm planar magnetic transducers, which allow the headphones to deliver fast transient response capabilities and high levels of upper frequency extension. While that may sound like a fancy thing to include in a pair of gaming headphones, the technology does allow the Penrose to be used extremely well as a pair of closed-back wireless headphones for music listening. "
"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."
"With the Audeze Mobius coming in at $399 and the Audeze-designed HyperX Cloud Orbit coming in at $199, the Penrose slots right in the middle with its $299 price tag. This remains very expensive for a gaming headset, but the quality is inarguably good. The Penrose strikes a middle-ground between gaming headset and audiophile headphone and is priced to match. I wish the battery life were longer, or that it featured fast charge to get back in the action quickly, so there’s still room to grow, but if you’re someone who loves good audio and needs to hear every detail in your game or soundtrack, you’ll find a lot to love here. "
"Bringing their technology from the popular Mobius gaming headset, Audeze delivers planar magnetic drivers to the console crowd with Penrose and Penrose X. While the wireless adapter and Bluetooth connectivity enable use with many different platforms, Penrose X brings premium audio to the Xbox Series X|S along with a premium price tag of $299.99. So how does the Audeze Penrose X perform for the price? Be sure to watch the video below and see all the details. "
"Audeze is widely considered to be one of the best in the audio business. The company routinely creates some of the best-sounding headphones targeted directly at the audiophile crowd. The Mobius gaming headset is one such device, though it is geared for gaming. The headset offers spectacular sound quality and has several well-designed features, including 3D audio that can be tuned to the shape of the user's head."
"The Audeze Penrose X is a high-end wireless gaming headset, whose outstanding audio performance is worthy of the Xbox Series X's power and speed. Equipped with 100-millimeter planar magnetic audio drivers, the over-ear cans deliver crisp and detail-rich sound even at maximum volume. A high-quality removable microphone, on the other hand, guarantees clear in-game chats"
Audeze only narrowly avoided offering an app for a single gaming headset this year, when it released the much delayed Penrose (look for our review in the new year). Audeze HQ now offers settings for two gaming headsets, the Audeze Mobius and Audeze Penrose.
"Penrose X uses a wireless 2.4gHz dongle instead of the completely wire-free Xbox protocol. This enables the headset to also be used on PC, which is a huge bonus. To connect to the Xbox, though, just make sure the dongle is in the Xbox mode, plug it into a USB port, and turn on the headset. It’s simple to get up and running and the connection was rock solid, in my experience."
We are honored to be the recipients of the Golden Hardware Award from mmorpg.com. Earning a nearly perfect score of 9/10, the LCD-1 has proven itself to be just as outstanding for gaming as it is for audiophile listening, and professional work. Find a link to the full review on our blog!
Safe indoors means more time for activities like video gaming, binge movie and TV-watching, and, depending on who you are quarantined with, drowning out external noise. When it comes to how we are tuning in (and tuning out at the same time), look no further than California-based audio manufacturer Audeze. Audeze’s Mobius gaming phones blew my mind. In our latest podcast, we spoke with Audeze Founder and CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram about the Mobius headphones. In this episode, he explains the history of this stunning piece of tech, while teaching us about how to shop for a new set.
