New Release Audeze Mobius Gaming Headset on Indiegogo
Bringing their renowned audiophile side to the gaming community, Audeze Mobius is a planar magnetic gaming headphone rich in immersive features. The company’s award-winning driver technology will provide the classic full, rich, and detailed Audeze sound without distortion while features like head-tracking, room emulation, and sound localization create a deeply engaging audio experience. Audeze’s head tracking technology monitors the tiniest of head movements a thousand times per second and reports that to the 3D emulation algorithm. Sound localization allows for the headphones to process the positioning of your head as well as identify and maintain the source of the sound so it changes dynamically as you move. Room emulation is described as a sophisticated customizable tool that creates a sense of space and reflection of the sound in the room. In layman’s terms, everything should sound super realistic. You’ll hear a helicopter as it approaches you, passes over you, and hovers off into the distance or maybe a tank a few meters from your right and someone sneaking up on you from behind.
As for the build, the headphones are said to be durable and very comfortable. They’re fit with ergonomically-shaped memory foam ear cushions and a virtually unbreakable, ultra-flexible headband. The boom microphone is detachable which allows for ease playing in both single player or multi-player mode. And of course, the until can be used with PC or gaming console as well.
When it comes to functionality, these gaming headphones are equipped with Bluetooth technology that has almost three times the data bandwidth as other Bluetooth headphones. This allows gamers to maintain a high quality experience while mobile gaming.
