If you're an Audiophile you have hopefully heard of Auduze by now. Their latest Penrose wireless headset is targeted squarely at gamers, be it PC or console. Extending their gaming heaphone/headset lineup from the LCD-GX and Mobius 3D Surround Sound, the Penrose is designed with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Sony’s PlayStation 5 in mind. Penrose is equipped with Audeze’s 100mm planar magnetic drivers, as well as a broadcast quality microphone for enhanced chat and streaming and a 2.4 GHz low-latency lossless wireless connection, so gamers can experience the best in audio quality and wireless functionality.
The Penrose microphone was engineered to bring enhanced voice quality for chat and streaming. Its flexible boom construction makes positional adjustments effortless, and built-in noise filters reduce up to 20dB of background sound so players can communicate with greater confidence.
The Penrose wireless headset comes with a USB dongle that can be connected to Xbox Series X, launching this spring, or PlayStation 5 gaming consoles, as well as current generation consoles and the preferred PC. Penrose can also be connected to mobile devices using Bluetooth 5.0, with support for SBC and AAC codecs. Both wireless and Bluetooth connections can be activated simultaneously, allowing users to customise their sound settings in real time using the Audeze HQ mobile and desktop app.
The Audeze Penrose wireless planar magnetic headset comes in two versions, Penrose (for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows and Mac desktops) and Penrose X (for Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles and Windows desktops).
"We’re excited to finally offer gamers a true wireless planar headset," says Audeze CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram, adding "Penrose is a huge leap forward for wireless console gaming audio and we can’t wait for people to hear it."
Audeze Penrose is available via BusiSoftAV for pre-order now for a special price of AUD $399/NZD $439. Stock is available from September, when retail price will return to AUD $499/NZD $549.
