Audeze is one of the most notable headphone manufacturers in the market. The brand makes premium audiophile-grade headphones. On the 14th of March, Audeze, announced a high end, fully immersive, head tracking-enabled headphone, which has 3D cinematic audio to boot. It is called the Mobius.
The general public, myself included, might have only been exposed to their open back popular series of headphones in the past. Now, they have tapped into the field of 3D audio and they plan into release it at an introductory price of $200. However, the retail value of the Mobius is expected to be anywhere around $400. In India, the Mobius is to launch at Rs. 27,999 in June.
Here are some of the salient features of the headphone:
- 3D audio
- Integrated low latency head tracking
- Long 10 + hours of battery life on a single charge
- Room emulation with built-in equalizers
- Sound localization
- USB type-C port
- USB type-A port
- 3.5 mm analog jack
While the Mobius may not be the world’s absolute best gaming headphone or even the most impressive pair we have ever seen, there is no denying that it is a truly unique and a mixed media platform of sorts. It is indeed meant for gamers and audiophiles alike.
Furthermore, these headphones include tracking because it ties in neatly with virtual reality games. Audeze has managed to sync the Mobius with popular virtual reality games and give you directional sound, depending on which direction you’re looking at.
This is a truly gaming-centric headphone, which manages to incorporate all the high and features that are required for interactive sessions, without looking too flashy or geeky on the outside.
“Audeze has raised the bar for premium audio quality and innovation based on our award winning planar magnetic technology. It’s a standard that impresses the most ardent audiophiles,” said Sankar Thiagasamudram, founder and CEO of Audeze regarding the Mobius.
There is an optional creators package which comes with the Mobius. This includes the latest 3D audio plugins for developers, looking to create audio for virtual and augmented reality applications.
