Getting Started

Getting Started


To update to the latest firmware, please visit the Firmware Updates section.


Maxwell has an expected battery lifespan of 80+ hours (at 80dB listening level). We recommend fully charging your Maxwell before first use via any 5v USB source. Maxwell supports 1.8 Amp fast chargers and will be capable of 20 to 30 hours of charge time in 20 minutes .


Power on Maxwell by holding down the power button on the front cup for 3 seconds (Audio cue: Power On). Your Maxwell will automatically connect to the first connected source in the connection priority.


Maxwell will connect to the dongle out of the box as long as it’s plugged into a compatible device and the switch on the dongle is set to the appropriate mode for that device (Audio cue: Connected).


To turn the microphone on or off, use the toggle switch on the outside of the left earcup (up is on, down is off).


Bluetooth Connection

Bluetooth Connection


Pairing via Bluetooth is similar on most platforms. To put your Maxwell into Bluetooth pairing mode, just double tap the power button (Audio cue: Pairing).


Maxwell supports swift pair on Windows and quick pair on Android phones. Simply put your Maxwell into pairing mode near your Windows machine or Android phone and it should prompt you to pair automatically.


Note: When pairing to any device, do not select “Audeze Maxwell BLE”. This refers to the low energy mode and is not the correct device for initial pairing.


For system specific pairing instructions, see below:



From Windows settings, go to Settings > Bluetooth & Devices > Add Device. Click “Bluetooth” and then “Audeze Maxwell BT” from the device menu.




From the desktop, click the control panel icon at the top right corner. Click the Bluetooth button, then click “Bluetooth Preferences” on the following window. On the Bluetooth Settings window, click the “Connect” button adjacent to “Audeze Maxwell BT"


Go to Settings > Bluetooth. With our Maxwell in pairing mode it will show in the devices list:


Go to Settings > Bluetooth. With our Maxwell in pairing mode it will show in the devices list:


USB Connection

USB Connection


Your Maxwell will automatically switch to USB mode (Audio cue: USB) when a USB cable is plugged into the port on your headphones with an active data connection. USB mode supports 24bit/96khz lossless hi-res audio on compatible systems.  


If you want to charge your Maxwell PlayStation while using it in Bluetooth mode, you’ll need to plug it in to a power only USB port like a wall wart charger (a USB Condom will also work for charging on sources with a data connection).

Maxwell has compatibility with iOS products via wired USB while using them with official Apple adapters. Compatibility cannot be guaranteed with other adapters.


AUX Connection

AUX Connection


Maxwell will automatically switch to AUX mode when an AUX cable is plugged into the correct port on your headphones. PLEASE NOTE: There are two AUX in ports on your headphones, the AUX in port is the one at the bottom of the headphones nearer to the volume wheels. The recessed port at the front of the headphones is for the Boom mic only.


Using the Wireless Dongle

Using the Wireless Dongle


When using your dongle on your preferred console, the switch on the side of the dongle must be set to the appropriate setting for full functionality. To set the dongle, unplug it from your source device and flip the switch to PS or Xbox (depending on the version you own) and plug it back in. Your Maxwell will automatically reconnect to the dongle if it’s detected (Audio cue: USB Dongle).


Here are the instructions for pairing a new Maxwell dongle to your headset (or re-pair an existing dongle).

Plug your dongle into your PC or Mac machine. Download and install the Audeze HQ software for Mac or Windows (v80 or higher).

From the "Settings" tab in the software, you'll see a button that says "Pair Dongle" (if your dongle is already paired to your headset, you'll have to power your headset OFF before the button will show).


When you click the Pair Dongle button, a new prompt will appear. Follow all on screen instructions to finish dongle pairing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're currently on firmware version or lower, you need to hold down the noise reduction button as you triple-tap the power button to put your headset in pairing mode.

Hardware fallback:

In case the above pairing instructions do not work, you can re-pair using a button on the dongle.

Firmware v46 or lower: Insert a paperclip into the small hold on the side of the dongle until you see the dongle's LED begin to flash. Once the LED is flashing, hold down the noise reduction button on the front of your headset, and then while holding that button down, press the power button three times in quick succession (it may take a few moments for pairing to occur) You'll hear a "pairing" voice prompt.

Firmware v49 or higher: Insert a paperclip into the small hold on the side of your dongle and click the button once. Once the LED begins to flash, triple tap the power button on your headset. You'll hear a "pairing" voice prompt in the headset.

Your headset may power off and power back on after it re-pairs.


Note on the “PC” dongle setting


The PC mode on the dongle should be used for all other devices, including other consoles like the Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck, etc. as well as PC and Mac. The PS and Xbox modes are specifically tailored to those consoles and PC mode will give you the best functionality on other devices.


The wireless dongle that comes with your Maxwell offers ultra low latency playback, very robust wireless transmission strength and hi-res audio. For devices that support Bluetooth LE Audio, the dongle is not required for low latency playback as long as LE Audio enabled on your device (currently this option is in the Developer Options menu on Android. This is a part of the new Bluetooth 5.3 protocol that will become available on more Android devices in the future, for more information on setup, see the Advanced Bluetooth Function section).


Simultaneous Audio

Simultaneous Audio


Your Maxwell chooses its connection automatically based on available connection types. If a wired connection source is active while using Maxwell via Bluetooth, it will attempt to play through both audio sources. Please note that simultaneous audio through any connection type while a Dongle connection is active, or through two simultaneous wired connections (USB+AUX) is not possible.


Note on charging while using the dongle: The USB dongle must be unplugged before the USB cable will function via wired connection. If you wish to charge your Maxwell while wired USB while listening to a dongle source, the USB cable must be plugged into its wired source BEFORE you plug in the dongle. You can also use a USB condom or a power-only (no data) usb charging brick.


Note on Mic usage during simultaneous audio: If you’re using Maxwell wired via USB + Bluetooth simultaneously, the mic will prioritize the Bluetooth connection for input. The mic will work through USB only while Bluetooth is not active. If your BT source plays audio, the mic will only work on the Bluetooth connection.


PlayStation Setup

PlayStation Setup


Maxwell is compatible on PS4 and PS5 using the USB Dongle (into the console USB ports), wired USB connection (into the console USB ports), or via 3.5mm AUX connection (into the controller). On PS5, you can connect the dongle or cable via the USB-C port on the front or any USB-A port using the included adapter.


Maxwell will show as one of two devices depending on the connection method used:


Dongle connection - USB Headset (Audeze Maxwell PS Dongle)

USB connection: USB Headset (Audeze Maxwell Headset)


Quick Access Menu


Most PS5 audio settings can be accessed through the quick menu that you can access by pressing the PS button on your controller, then navigating to the speaker icon. You can quickly and easily change the output device, volume levels and game/chat mix through this function.


Note on PlayStation Game/Chat mix: Due to the complexity of the system, Sony has not made the game/chat functionality publicly available for third party headphones and the built-in game/chat interface on your headphones will not work with PlayStation’s chat features. You will need to adjust game/chat balance from the quick menu.


Note on system volume controls: These controls are not tied to Maxwell’s on-board volume controls. We recommend leaving this setting close to max and fine-tuning the volume from the headphones themselves to give yourself the maximum headroom and gain control. The lower this setting is, the less volume you’ll have to play with on Maxwell’s own physical volume control.


Here a brief explanation on PS5 system audio settings:

Audio Output


Switch Output Device Automatically - With this setting, toggling it on will allow the Playstation to switch automatically to the Maxwell as soon as it is connected.

Output To Headphones - You can either set this to ‘All Audio’ or ‘Voice Chat Audio’. Self explanatory. If you wish to hear all audio coming from the Playstation set it to ‘All Audio’. If you only wish to hear your party chat, set it to ‘Voice Chat Audio’. For the vast majority of users, you will want to leave this on ‘All Audio’.


Mono Audio For Headphones - If you have any hearing issues or want to hear all incoming audio on both ears, you can toggle this on.


Note: You will get no positional/directional audio cues with this setting, as this will force both sides of your headphones to play the exact same audio at the exact same volume.


Mic Level - Adjusts how loud your microphone is for other users. This should be set to a balanced level.


Note: Maxwell uses automatic gain control to help automatically optimize the mic volume levels, so adjust your mic levels accordingly.


3D Audio Settings

These settings are used for customizing Sony’s Tempest 3D audio engine.


Enable 3D Audio For Headphones - Off means Maxwell is set to basic stereo output. Toggling this on will enable spatial 3D audio virtual surround on Maxwell.


Adjust 3D Audio Profile - Here you can select between 5 types, all which have varying heights. Choose whichever sounds closest to your ear level for the optimal 3D audio experience.


Listen and Compare - Here you can quickly switch between a test of basic stereo, and 3D audio enabled.


Xbox Setup

Xbox Setup


Maxwell is compatible with Xbox One consoles and Xbox Series S|X using the USB Dongle (into the console USB ports with the included USB-C to A extension), or via 3.5mm AUX connection (into the controller).


Quick Access Menu


Most Xbox Series S|X audio settings can be accessed through the quick menu. You can access it by pressing the Xbox button on your controller, then navigating to the speaker icon for “Audio & music”. You can quickly and easily change the output device, volume levels and game/chat mix through this function, as well as enable mic monitoring. We recommend using the built-in sidetone function of your Maxwell for the best performance.


You can also access a shortcut to the Dolby Access app (which may need to be downloaded separately in the Xbox Store). Your Maxwell comes with a license that will automatically be active while the headset is in use on Xbox and PC, but the function will need to be enabled through your console options.


Note on system volume controls: These controls are not tied to Maxwell’s on-board volume controls. We recommend leaving this setting close to max and fine-tuning the volume from the headphones themselves to give yourself the maximum headroom and gain control. The lower this setting is, the less volume you’ll have to play with on Maxwell’s own physical volume control.


Additionally, while you can adjust the volume of the Headset chat mixer with the chat scroll wheel on your headphones, this option is only configurable on the Xbox menu while you are in a party chat.


Here a brief explanation on Xbox system audio settings:

Volume & audio output


This menu is accessed via Settings > General > Volume & audio output


Speaker audio - This option will allow you to set the preferred audio format. You can choose between spatial audio or Stereo uncompressed. We recommend selecting Dolby Atmos to utilize the Atmos license embedded in the Maxwell for Xbox headset.


Headset audio - This option can be configured for several different 3d audio spatialization or PCM audio options. You’ll need to enable “Dolby Atmos for Headphones” to take advantage of the built-in Atmos license on your headphones (settings for this can be configured through the Dolby Access app)

Additional options

Mute speaker audio when headset attached - Checking this option will disable your TV or sound system speakers. Unchecking this option will allow simultaneous audio through both your speakers and headphones.


Chat mixer - This option will allow you to select the default chat audio mixing. You can choose among four options: Mute all other sounds, reduce volume of other sounds by 80%, reduce volume of other sounds by 50%, and Do nothing.


Party chat output - This option toggles between your speakers and headset for party chat audio. Select Headset to listen to your party chat audio via Maxwell.


Dolby Atmos spatial audio configuration


Open the Dolby Atmos app either via the Xbox audio settings or directly via your Games & Apps list.


Products - This menu show your current Atmos configuration. This should be set to Dolby Atmos for headphones for use with Maxwell:


Settings - This menu will allow you to configure your EQ options (note that these are separate from the EQ profiles on the Maxwell headset). Here you can choose pre-configured Game, Movie, Music options each with Intelligent equalizer options for your preference, as well as three custom profiles for fine tuning your own Equalization. We recommend keeping these settings on the default EQ values


Firmware Updates

Firmware Updates

You can update the firmware using the Audeze HQ application. The latest versions can be found on our software page here: https://www.audeze.com/pages/audeze-software


PC/Mac app:

  1. From the HQ app, navigate to the settings tab. From there, while the dongle is plugged in, press the “update dongle” button.

  1. Unplug the dongle and plug in Maxwell via wired USB. Click “Update Headset”.

  1. Plug the dongle back in, make sure both dongle and headset firmware display that they are up-to-date:


Android app: 


From the settings menu, if an update is available, simply click “Update Headset”

Please note: Dongle updates are currently not available on Mobile devices. You must update your dongle via the PC or Mac app to maintain version parity.

Adjusting the Head Strap

Adjusting the Head Strap


To adjust the headband strap length, pull the strap straight off of the set screws. You do not need to remove the screws to adjust the strap length. Line up the holes of the appropriate adjustment level and slide the headband back over the screws. For very large adjustments, the head strap can be removed entirely and the upper band is cushioned to give more headroom for those blessed with an extra large brain.



Attaching/Detaching the Earpads

Attaching/Detaching Earpads


Maxwell comes with detachable earpads for quick swapping between new sets. To detach the earpads, pinch one side of the cushion and rotate the pad clockwise. It should click out of the bracket and you can pull it straight off. To attach a new set of earpads, make sure you use the appropriate side (L or R) and that the earpads have the correct side up. Slot the cutouts of the plastic retention ring to the “feet” on the headphones and then rotate the earpad counter-clockwise until it clicks into place.


Game/Chat Mixer and PC Setup

Game/Chat mixer and PC Setup


Maxwell features an on-board game/chat mixer wheel for use on compatible platforms. For Xbox, the game/chat mixer is integrated into the console’s party chat feature and will work out of the box. For PC and Mac, the chat mixer wheel uses two endpoint audio devices to separate the game and chat channels for individual control.


These audio devices can be selected as the primary or secondary audio devices using your machine’s audio settings. For more specific instructions on how to set up this function, see our support article.


Adjusting the game/chat wheel on your headphones or in the app changes the relative volume levels of these two endpoints, meaning that you can make the chat channel louder or quieter compared to the game channel by scrolling the wheel up or down.


The dual endpoint method of game/chat mix is available on PC and Mac platforms on all connection methods except 3.5mm AUX.


On other platforms that don’t support two simultaneous audio outputs like PS5 or Nintendo Switch, game/chat mix will have to be adjusted manually through system settings on the source device (see Xbox and PlayStation Setup sections for more info on platform specific setup).





Maxwell features a “sidetone” functionality (also known as mic monitoring) that lets you hear your voice in real time by playing back the mic audio in your headphones. This lets you adjust your voice and hear what others are hearing from your mic.


To toggle the sidetone on or off, double-click the game/chat wheel (Audio Cue: Sidetone on, Sidetone off)


To adjust the sidetone volume, single-press and scroll the game/chat wheel up or down (Audio Cue: Sidetone). You will hear a low boop sound when you reach minimum sidetone volume, and a higher pitched beep when you reach max sidetone volume. The wheel will revert to its normal function after a few seconds if the wheel is not adjusted.

EQ Presets and Programming

Audeze HQ and EQ Presets and Programming


Maxwell has several on-board EQ settings, as well as 4 programmable EQ slots for custom equalizations. You can use the Audeze HQ software to both select EQ presets and program in new presets.


To change the EQ presets on-the-fly, you can double tap the headset volume wheel (Audio Cue: EQ). Scrolling the wheel up or down will toggle through the available EQ presets (Audio Cue: Competition, Footsteps, Immersive, Bass Boost, Treble Boost, Audeze, EQ1, EQ2, EQ3, EQ4)


Here’s a quick breakdown of the premade EQ settings:

EQ name

Sound profile


This is our default EQ curve. Our engineers tuned Maxwell with this “house sound” in mind, and it brings out the most rounded and well-tuned experience for your headphones.

Bass Boost

This EQ curve applies a bass shelf, and relaxes the upper midrange, for a warm, punchy sound inspired by vintage Audeze headphones.


This EQ curve enhances environmental effects, combining increased bass energy for real-world weight with heightened treble detail to highlight spatial and ambient sounds.


This EQ curve brings forward details in the midrange and lower treble, and lessens bass from explosions and effects that can otherwise overwhelm critical game actions.


This EQ curve is designed to enhance footstep sounds in first-person shooter games, with specific bass and midrange boosts and cuts to highlight them and lessen masking sounds.

Treble Boost

This EQ curve is based on one of the most popular audiophile curves, aimed at a well balanced sound with a slightly boosted treble response.

EQ1, EQ2, EQ3, EQ4

These are blank EQ profiles that can be programmed using the Audeze HQ app to make your own tailored audio experiences.


Programming Custom EQ Profiles


You can program one of the 4 customizable EQ presets via the Audeze HQ app to suit your personal preferences when it comes to your audio experience. These EQ presets are saved onto the headset for on-the-fly switching using the switching method detailed above.

Mobile app:

EQ Profiles can be saved to one of the four preset slots on your headphones by going to the option menu in the upper right corner and selecting “Equalizer”


Note: Music must be playing while EQ adjustments are done.



On PC and Mac, EQ values can be changed by first selecting one of the user Preset options on the main page. These changes will be automatically saved to the corresponding preset profile and will be active when switched to that EQ mode.


Settings tab in Audeze HQ


The auto-shutdown feature found in the settings tab of HQ can be used to turn off the headphones automatically after it detects a period of inactivity. Please note that this feature ONLY works on the wireless modes (Bluetooth and wireless dongle).

Voice Prompts

The voice prompts slider will set the level of the automated voice cues (power on, power off, EQ callouts, etc.)

Factory Reset

This feature can be used to rest all settings and EQ values from your headphones and reestablish the connection. It will NOT roll the firmware version back to the factory default.


Volume Limiter


To comply with EU regulations, the volume limiter slider limits the overall output volume of the headset to a safe listening range. This slider can be turned on or off to suit your volume preferences but does not otherwise affect performance.


A.I. Noise Suppression

A.I. Noise Suppression


Maxwell uses Audeze’s innovative FILTER A.I. noise reduction technology to selectively filter out and eliminate background noise from your environment. The processing is done via an integrated chip, without extra software required for extremely low performance overhead. This gives you the benefits of advanced noise filtration without the extra cost to system performance. The noise filtration is trained on over 500,000 different types of noise. The noise suppression function works with both the internal and external boom microphones.


You can watch a short demonstration of the capabilities of the FILTER A.I. technology using Maxwell here.


To enable the A.I. Noise filtration, single tap the A.I Noise Suppression button to cycle between the three modes (Voice Cue: Noise suppression off, noise suppression low, noise suppression high).





Maxwell features several different microphones to give you the maximum performance and flexibility.

Boom Mic


The detachable Shure designed boom microphone gives you the maximum voice quality and clarity. It features a max SPL of more than 140dB and built-in noise filters that reduce up to an additional 20dB of background sound.


For the best performance, we recommend setting the boom mic capsule about 2 inches from your mouth, just below your bottom lip with the mic facing forward (if the pop filter is removed, the silver grille should be facing towards your mouth).


The boom mic comes with a foam pop filter preinstalled on the end of the mic capsule. This can be removed for washing or preference by simply pulling it off the end of the mic.

Internal Mic


When the boom mic is unplugged, Maxwell will automatically switch to the internal microphone for communications. This can be used for on-the-go conversations or for those that prefer a lower-profile look to their headset.

Beamforming array


Maxwell features a multi-mic beamforming array built into the earcups. These mics help triangulate and narrow down the area of mic pickup to a narrow cone in front of your face. This helps eliminate pickup from other sources like keyboards, noisy children, hurricanes, and other nuisances and greatly enhances voice quality.

Disabling the mic


The Maxwell microphones (both internal and boom mic) can be disabled by switching the mute switch on the left earcup to the DOWN position at any time.


Connection Priority

Connection Priority


Maxwell uses a dynamic connection priority system to automatically output audio from your audio sources. Due to the complex nature of these interactions, priority differs slightly depending on the sources available and which mode the dongle is in.


The priority for PC/Mac is as follows:

  1. AUX has first priority, but Bluetooth audio can be played simultaneously

  2. Bluetooth has next priority. If the dongle is plugged in and is actively in use, any Bluetooth audio will interrupt the dongle audio stream, unless you are actively using communications through the dongle (i.e. on Skype, Teams, Discord, party chat, or any program where the microphone is active). In this case, only communications from the BT source (i.e. an incoming phone call) will interrupt the dongle audio. You must not have communications active on the dongle if you want standard BT audio to interrupt the dongle audio.  

  3. Dongle audio

  4. USB wired (can be used simultaneously with Bluetooth)

For Xbox/PS5, the connection order differs slightly:

  1. AUX (can be used simultaneously with Bluetooth)

  2. Dongle Audio

  3. Bluetooth audio (NOTE: Bluetooth will remain as the higher priority over Dongle audio in case of incoming phone calls, but will NOT output regular audio unless the dongle is unplugged or the PS5 is turned off).

  4. USB wired (can be used simultaneously with Bluetooth)

Important Notes: 

Some instability can occur if switching between devices rapidly. AUX connection should be plugged or unplugged while the headphones are powered off to ensure stability while switching.

To mitigate potential issues, we also recommend not connecting the wireless dongle and BT to the same source device at the same time. We recommend using the wireless dongle for main devices like PC/MAC or game consoles, and BT for secondary devices like phones and tablets.


Advanced Bluetooth Functions

Advanced Bluetooth Function

LDAC Codec


Most versions of Android will tell you which codec is currently in use in your Bluetooth device menu:


Your Maxwell will automatically use the highest quality Bluetooth codec available, however, in some cases to enable the high quality LDAC codec (for Android phones that support them), you may need to navigate to your phone’s developer settings.


This process varies from phone to phone, so the instructions below may vary slightly on your device and you’ll need to reach out to your device manufacturer for more precise instructions, but the process is generally as follows:


To enable developer options:


    1. Go to your phone’s settings
    2. Navigate to About Device > Version > Build number (this may vary slightly)
    3. Tap the “Build number” 7 times.

To enable LDAC through developer options:


    1. Navigate back to the main system settings menu and there should be a new menu named “Developer Options” (this may be in an “Additional Settings” menu on some devices).
    2. From the developer menu, scroll down to the Networking options and look for Bluetooth Audio Codec. You can switch between any available codecs at will from this menu as long as Maxwell is currently paired to your phone via Bluetooth.



Multipoint Bluetooth Connection


Maxwell is compatible with advanced Bluetooth multipoint functionality, allowing it to switch seamlessly between multiple paired Bluetooth devices and allows you to answer incoming calls easily by pressing the power button once when a call is incoming. This puts a primary call on hold when a second incoming call is answered.


Multipoint should work out of the box once you’ve paired your Maxwell to two compatible Bluetooth devices. Switching between audio is as simple as stopping playback on one and starting it on the other device.

Care, Safety and Maintenance Instructions

Care, Safety and Maintenance Instructions


  • When putting the headphones on or putting them flat on a desk, a small amount of air becomes trapped in the earcups. If the headphones have excessive pressure put on the earpads without a means for the air inside the earcups to escape (such as dropping them on a flat surface, or pushing them down quickly while they’re on the users head) the resulting pressure increase on this trapped air can damage the diaphragm.This damage is not covered by warranty.

    We recommend putting your headphones on slowly without pressing them down, giving the pressure time to equalize naturally. You can read more about the unique diaphragm materials of planar magnetic headphones in our support article here.

  • To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume levels for long periods. Also, higher volume may cause distortion. We recommend using your headphones at a comfortable, moderate volume level.

  • We recommend cleaning your earpads and head strap with a clean dry cloth after use to absorb moisture. Long term exposure to moisture may deterioritate the material.
  • Turn the volume down on your device before placing the headphones on your ears, then turn the volume up gradually until you reach a comfortable listening level.

  • An alarm (beep), warning tone, will sound when the volume is increased to maximum. This is meant to protect your ears when you raise the volume setting beyond a specific level.

  • Do NOT use your headphones while driving for phone calls or any other purpose.

  • Use this product only with an agency approved power supply which meets local regulatory requirements (e.g., UL, CSA, VDE, CCC).

  • Do NOT make unauthorized alterations to this product. (e.g. remove the Li-ion polymer rechargeable battery from this product and install an after-market battery by yourself.) This could result in a potential battery explosion risk or premature failure of your headphones, which are not covered by warranty.

  • Do NOT expose products containing batteries to excessive heat (e.g. from storage in direct sunlight, fire or the like)

  • This product contains magnetic material. Consult your physician on whether this might affect your implantable medical device.
