    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    Also durability was one of the complaints (major ones) against the Penrose - if a company doesn't focus a fair bit of attention on that aspect then they're not worth £300+ of anyone's money - it will surely have been at or near the top of the design teams list. I'm confident the Maxwell will be...

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    That mic is seriously impressive - will be good in console parties to drown out screaming wife and kids in the background too!! I'm assuming she has a small head though as looks as though they are set to the smallest possible setting there and the outer headband looks HUGE :)

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    Thanks for the update @Audeze although ‘hope to be in the next few weeks’ still doesn’t sound terribly optimistic even for PS orders. Internationally this could still be March I guess which is why UK website just says Q1? Hopefully the firmware work goes well and ahead of schedule.

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    The Xbox version has said the 28th Jan for about the past 3 weeks or more (the date was added at or around the same time they added the 15th Jan for the PS version) - I've been checking daily :stuck_out_tongue:

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    I'm keeping watch also - think it was mentioned that Audeze estimated shipping would be last Jan now - I'm not expecting to get one here in the UK until mid Feb earliest now sadly (and to be honest may have to wait until the 2nd batch which is going to be closer to April here). For the Xbox...

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    Loved the 560s - just always feel they are wasted on the Dualsense and cabling across the lounge to my Creative G6 just feels a hassle and not very 'next gen' :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    Yea - seems some of these dates are just plain hope rather than fact! Contacted Scan in the UK as they are showing the PS5 version of the headset being due on the 15th Jan. They told me the date they show is the one provided by the supplier/manufacturer. In that case then there is zero...

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    This feels like the Penrose launch all over again. I hope that some UK stock will be supplied this month but can’t help but feel it’ll be a month or two yet.

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    UK website still advertising shipping in early Jan?? https://www.audeze.co.uk/products/maxwell-wireless-gaming-headset Can't imagine the challenges of launching a new product but starting to get a deja vu feeling from the Penrose launch - similar last minute firmware/shipping delays meant...

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    A Sunday release date in the UK?? Sounds like a placeholder date to me (lets just pick the middle of the expected launch month!!) :wink:

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    USB output is definitely low on PS5 - lots of audio devices I've tried have limited max volume due to this when they are absolutely fine on other devices. Audio devices specifically designed for the PS5 should be fine though.

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    I’ve messaged Hifi Headphones in the UK who have confirmed they will stock them and will have preorders up as soon as they are provided a release date by Audeze.

    Audeze - Introducing Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets!

    That's enough positive points for me to want to order - now hurry up UK retailers - get your stock allocation so I can preorder :stuck_out_tongue:

    Audeze Penrose X and Penrose

    iOS app support is a big disappointment but LDAC, USB audio and much better battery life, plus hopefully a more comfortable headband are big wins (in my book at least). Question is - will the Xbox version work on PS5 in PC mode again ;)

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (8/18/2022: iFi GO Blu Review Added)

    I think they are asking how they could get the best out of the GX appreciating that the G6 may not be the solution? Guessing the answer to that question will depend on the usage (PC/PS5) they have?

    Audeze Penrose X and Penrose

    Good review - thanks - shame the sound is affected quite a bit - was hoping not to have to complicate things with another Eq in the app :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Audeze Penrose X and Penrose

    Would love a new version to be announced - small as it might seem, also having consistent voice prompts across the modes would also help justify my £300 expense! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Been looking at the Playmate 2 also - I understand the 3.5mm supports mic which makes it a perfect all rounder for my usage :)

    Audeze Penrose X and Penrose

    Wireless, used on laptop, PS5 and Xbox. No high pitch sound, but obviously some background noise when Transparency Mode on, pretty much silent without it on. Volume stages much smaller so adjustments easier - can also use the volume control on the base station for subtle changes when it's close...

    Audeze Penrose X and Penrose

    Appears to stay on as long as it has power from the connected device/PC etc (unless I've missed a setting somewhere!)

    I bought a set of the Nova Pro Wireless (Xbox version - which I'm using with Xbox, PS5 and PC) yesterday and have been using them for a day or so - will try to give some views over the next day or so.

    Audeze Penrose X and Penrose

    I've tried the Portal for Xbox and this year's PS/PC version - mic is beyond awful, sound with music is pretty good but when tried with some Battlefield, they sounded awful to me no matter what I did in the app with the sound profiles. Just nowhere near Penrose sound for games to my hearing anyway.

    Audeze Penrose X and Penrose

    Yea - the PC/PS Portal sounded pretty good with music to me but not great for gaming (nowhere near the Penrose level). Saying the mic is horrendous is being kind to the Portal. When tested on the PS5 it was absolutely abysmal. I’d be embarrassed telling my mates I was using a £450 headset...
