"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." Read More
"Should you buy an Audeze Mobius
, good question, it is by far the best gaming headset I have ever had the opportunity to own and review. Offers head-tracking, the best audio experience, the biggest set of drivers and software to personally customise. Now here comes the headsets that I feel may not offer up all the bells and whistles but are good, Razer BlackShark V2, EPOS GPS 601 or 670, SteelSeries Arctis Range, each of these is great and cheaper. The HyperX Cloud Orbit S is a cheaper option, but you do lose Bluetooth connectivity, and I have no idea how it sounds. For console users, you might want to check out the Audeze Penrose
, or any official headset from Sony and Microso
"I like my gaming headsets quite a bit. I’m picky when it comes to price and comfort. The Mobius sets a new bar for gaming headset sound solutions. It is worth every single penny asked because it makes you appreciate the investment. It’s everything you would want in a gaming audio experience." Read More
"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." Read More
"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." Read More
"Maybe this next statement is a bit of a Shook-ism, but I’ve always felt that “you can always get what you want if you know how to ask for it.” For me: I want the truth, I want clarity, and I want my feelings acknowledged. I want to see myself inside of the song, and to feel what the artist feels. I want to know that I have someone on the other side who shares in my joy and pain. The Audeze LCD-1 headphones have gifted me both an understanding and exposing musical companion. They are both partner and savior in the music loving experience. I now pass them on to you, highly recommended."2 Read More
"I am truly impressed with the microphone quality"
"Honestly they give you some really good sound"
"You are really getting two things here...a wide range sound for gaming...and a great music headphone"
"The look is sleek and understated. The pair I received is matte black with subtle gray accents. Branding is kept to a minimum with an “A” on either side and “Audeze” across the top of the headband. The company name is off-center which bothers me from a looks perspective, but the design is exactly what I want. I don’t like neon, loud colors in my AV equipment, although there are models with copper or blue accents for those who find the stealth look too tame." Read More
"Audeze may not be a name that many folks recognize in gaming hardware circles, certainly not as common as SteelSeries
. But Audeze has been around for a number of years producing high end planar magnetic driver headsets for audiophiles and now they are dipping into the gaming market with some pretty slick features just for gaming immersion. Enter the Audeze Mobius
Over the last few months, I’ve been playing video games on my PS4 and Nintendo Switch using Audeze’s Mobius Headphones. They’ve also been part of my music listening regiment when I want to have a more intimate experience. While the last few years I’ve been mostly on budget headphones for gaming and and using Air Pods with my iPhone and iPad, it was extremely cool to dive into a more immersive listening experience with a high-end set of headphones.

“All these gamers who are serious about becoming competitive [and] having a competitive advantage are going to invest in better tech,” Jake Fyfe said, “because it’s an arms race when you’re trying to be the best. And headphones can give you an edge. From my conversations the standout headphone currently is Audeze
’s Mobius headset. “They are the best headphones that I’ve used for gaming – ever,” OG Arabian Prince told me. It is also among the most expensive of headsets. At the same time, Audeze
being a very high end headphone company where headphones can retail in the multi-thousands, the Mobius is one of their least expensive and best-priced items."
"If you want a truly quality headset for gaming that has all the bells and whistles, the Audeze Mobius headset may be your best choice. Not only does it offer a lot of “stuff”, but it also sounds pretty amazing too!" Read More
"Audeze has done a marvelous job providing a product that targets both audiophiles and gamers, but therein lies the problem. The Audeze Mobius retails for $399
. For most audiophiles that price probably comes across as very reasonable compared to what most audiophile equipment goes for. However, for gamers, the most popular high-end gaming headsets only run about $100-150. The jump to $400 might be too much for some, but if you are interested in upgrading your audio experience in the same way you upgrade your gaming system specs, then the Audeze Mobius is absolutely worth it."
"The folks at Audeze have a reputation not only for high-end headphones but for high-end headphones with a relatively unique set of features. See, these headphones offer Spatial Audio, or the ability to accurately simulate sounds as though they are coming from different sources instead of blasted directly at your ears from either side of your head. Their LCD-1 headphones released in January focused on professionals with incredibly high-end needs and a focus on precision and accuracy, allowing the user to hear music as though they were coming from speakers in front of you."
