Shockingly, despite the fact that the gaming world hinges on the best and newest technological advancements in processing and display quality, gaming headphones have been kind of left in the dirt. It’s not that gamers aren’t interested in good sound, it’s just that few brands are making high-end audio devices for video games. Well, that’s all about to change courtesy of Audeze and their LCD-GX gaming headphones.
Audeze is already extremely well-known in the audiophile community for their high-fidelity offerings. And they’re imbuing the entirety of that expertise into these open-back ‘phones — starting with massive 103mm drivers that are as many as four times bigger than those in traditional gaming headsets. And it’s not just their size, either — with Audeze’s patented Fluxor magnets and ultra-thin Uniforce diaphragms, their sound quality and immersion are nigh-unmatched. They’re also free of any digital processing and, as mentioned, have an open-back design for a wide and accurate soundstage. Expected to release in July, these ultra-high-end gaming headphones will be available for $899.
