Audeze has made quite the name for itself within the world of high-end audio reproduction. With an expansive catalog of premium headphones, earbuds, and pro-audio devices, it was only a matter of time before the brand released one of the gaming genre’s most advanced variants. Now, that variant is finally here in the form of the “Penrose.”
Whether you’re gaming on PS5, PS4, Windows 10, macOS, or Xbox Series X, or Xbox One, Audeze has created an over-ear variant for true audio enthusiasts. Each example features a suite of run-of-the-mill features, like a fully-adjustable (and removable) microphone, USB-C charging port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and dedicated microphone volume/game volume knobs. But it’s the Penrose’s 100mm planar magnetic drivers and wireless modules that set it apart, allowing wearers to utilize both a lossless, low-latency 2.4GHz connection and Bluetooth 5.0, simultaneously. As far as gaming headphones are concerned, this is a significant upgrade, allowing you to listen to an alternative device — like a tablet or smartphone — while immersed in your favorite video game. Head to Audeze’s website to learn more about the headset, which is available now for $250.
