Mobius is a Critical Hit!
Don’t just take our word for it, hear what others have shared about the incredible Mobius experience:
These new planar headphones from Audeze feature an amazing amount of built-in technology. Mobius is packed with DSP and features low-latency Bluetooth, the first showing of Sony's LDAC protocol in a non-Sony headphone. It supports Apple AAC, built-in audio interface via USB-C, and, despite being a closed-back design, emulates the characteristics of open-backed models. They also have built-in Waves Nx capability - which utterly fooled Gaz when he had a listen. ;-]”
With extremely advanced (and integrated) head tracking to create an uncanny sense of surround realism, the Audeze Mobius is something far greater than just a gaming headset (though it is that, too)...”
A good analogy would be comparing Mobius to an audio equivalent of what VR headsets do for the visual component of games. We played some Assassin’s Creed Origins and listened to some music and both instances sounded as if I was in the middle of whatever scenario was going on, whether it was a jazz combo playing or some angry man with a sword trying to kill me.”
The soundstage of the Mobius headphones exhibited was immensely wide, which is by design, but — and this is the thing that will especially appeal to gamers — it was the precise positioning of each rebound that was most impressive."
Audeze is making moves to shake up the gaming headset market with the introduction of the Mobius headphones, a 3D audio gaming headset that features advanced spatial audio technology and head-tracking sensors to increase the immersion of your gaming experience.”
There are plenty of 3D-ready “surround sound” headphones out there, but the new Mobius headphones from Audeze are probably the most sophisticated to date, incorporating not only 3D audio processing but also head tracking to create an experience you just can’t get from any competitor products.”
The 3D imaging software was impressive, certainly, but gaming takes up only around half our time on PC. The other half is spent listening to music. While planar magnetic drivers help the audio sound more lifelike in its reproduction, it’s the combination of the planar magnetic tech and the 3D software that help the Mobius to create an experience closer to a live concert.”
It’s packing some of the best 3D audio effects I’ve heard, all backed by Audeze’s hi-fi pedigree. If you’re at a concert and turn your head right, you’ll hear more sound out of your left ear. The Mobius imitate this effect, and it makes for a much more convincing surround experience.”
Audeze has revealed a new set of gaming headphones, with its new Mobius set promising 3D sound that bakes in head tracking for a more convincing surround effect. The company is better known for its audiophile-friendly headphones for music, with these new Mobius headphones the first time it has specifically targeted gamers.”
For its first walk of the wireless wild side, California headphone maker Audeze has opted to throw its considerable audiophile-pleasing know-how into the gaming arena with the launch of the Mobius gaming headset. We've tried the company's planar magnetic driver technology in full over-ear headphone form and in chunky earphones, and can confirm spacious, accurate and detailed, reference grade reproduction.”
Localization is pretty mind-blowing. Imagine you are looking forward and listening to a wide sound field. If you move your head, the sound moves with it but the Mobius can “localize” that centered sound as you move your head left and right. It’s kind of spooky and fun. Mobius has tracking sensors that monitor your precise head movements. There’s even “room emulation” that can create a realistic sense of a room and its sound reflections.”
