"For $300, the Audeze Penrose
is on the higher end for gaming headphones, even for those that come with mix amp functionality and multiple wireless connectivity options. Here’s the thing though, you won’t find a better-sounding pair of gaming headphones. We’ve tested dozens, and the Penrose is head and shoulders above the competition."
"The Audeze Penrose X is the best premium wireless headset we've tested yet, with planar magnetic drivers that allow for excellent sound quality at the expense of bulk. The Penrose is defined by excellent clarity and separation, making it easy to pick out details even in chaotic soundscapes, with a slightly warm sound overall. Combined with a good low latency audio connection via a 2.4GHz wireless dongle and a good microphone, and you get one of the best-sounding headsets for Series X. The headset also offers Bluetooth and 3.5mm connectivity, allowing use with a wide range of other devices." Read More

now offers settings for two gaming headsets, the Audeze Mobius
and Audeze Penrose.
