The Mobius is Audeze’s first gaming headphone. Well musically, The Mobius has some nice party tricks to get your swaying. The surround sound is exceptionally well done in this overhead wireless headphone. And when you connect the headset to USB (currently the feature doesn’t work on Bluetooth, or with an Aux connection), you can unleash some of the most detailed, realistic and convincing headphone surround sound that you may have heard. The Mobius also comes with a Head-tracking mode; meaning, it senses where you are in space, and ‘moves’ the perceived source of sound every time you turn your head – and the result is intense to say the least.
This headset transitions between gaming, movies and music quite seamlessly. You will just be a press of a button away between two-channel and surround modes. However, it is advisable that you turn off the ‘head-tracking’ mode when listening to music. Coming back to sound quality, the instrumentation and detail is stellar with these. They also come with some decent EQ presets. Bluetooth pairing is easy and you also get couple of options to receive data. You also get access to LDAC streaming, which is a type of Bluetooth developed by Sony which allows for the sending/receiving of high-resolution files. The headphone has a built-in microphone, with a clear sound and minimal distraction. The mic arm is not only positioned anywhere, but is also removable when not in use. Priced at around $350, this one’s a worth a try, especially if you are a gaming fanatic.
The Wireless technology has become exponentially reliable over the last couple of years. And the makers of headphones have been effectively and efficiently utilizing this technology to give you a pristine musical experience. So, don’t wait. Grab one of these new wireless headphones and listen away!
