    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    I agree. I initially found the default of 35 to be too echoey but after adjusting over a week or two I'm really liking the 50-55 range. Going down to 35 again feels a little less "cohesive" in the virtual room and more cramped. 35 does feel more like near field monitors. 50 feels like a decent...

    To quote audeze, bold my emphasis: So audeze set the expectation there. That said I'm sure they will be perfectly acceptable with a much reduced hiss and I will keep and love my pair. Still, audeze maybe needs to not write checks they can't cash. With the above statement in bold it is...

    Gotcha. Back on the 4th I got in touch about the replacement process, they said they'd contact me so maybe I'm already covered. Not worried, I'll get them eventually.

    Odd, they didnt start an RMA process with me. I'll wait till Monday and try talking to them then. I had asked about what I needed to do back on the 4th.

    Remember shipping begins could just mean shipping to SFC or whoever is handling shipping out from China. Order 26 here, nothing yet. I'm expecting them to get in by end of next week unless there's been a delay Edit: I actually dont know how mine is going to work since I received an early unit...

    As someone who hasn't listened to "normal" headphones in over a year, the mobius in 3D mode is fantastic for music. This is the sound I've been chasing for a while now. And ive been through 2 phonitors, SBX, Dolby Headohone, HeaDSPeaker, Out of your Head, you name it. This is the best virtual...

    My mobius shipped from china on the 24th and delivered on the 27th. They're shipping DHL Express

    The copper usbc cables really bring out the warmth and creaminess of the mids by affecting the polarity of the bits passing through the cable. Pair it with the copper mobius for maximum foot tapping lushness. Wow those mids, so smooth Yes this is a joke

    I have before, and I have again just now as a refresher. The mobius does a better job at rear cues, especially lower frequency cues, than that and other stationary binaural recordings.

    This is, i think, why the rear localization is so much better than virtual surround software without tracking. Your brain is pretty bad at judging things behind you if you head is perfect still. It's the minor movements that help you locate things

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    You seem to be arguing why someone who wants none of the features of mobius would want to buy mobius. I got the mobius because I want latency free headtracking. I got it because I want 2 channel virtualization, even in bluetooth. I got it because I want a great mic. I got it because I want to...

    I should log off too. I'm too hype for this. If we can fix the hiss, this is my endgame headphone, and man have I gone through some headphones.

    I'm sure Audeze is dealing with a lot of PMs. They certainly are monitoring this thread, maybe they will release a modified pad. To clarify I still get a hiss but it's the very upper frequencies of the original hiss. Much more easily masked by sound.

    Definitely possible. I'm on the opposite end, with the cups only extended 1 or 2 clicks.

    Pressing the cups does quiet the hiss. Seems almost like it cuts down the lower frequencies of the hiss, cleans it up.

    Windows 10 USB hi-res, youtube player maxed. 28 I can still hear the hiss over the track. After 34 or 36 I can't make out the hiss unless I focus on it. My "comfortable" level for this track would be 24

    Why would 55 be bad? I listen at about 70db which is around 28 on my mobiud, I'm a very quiet listener. You probably listen to a more average volume.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Right. My 30 should be about the same as anyone else on windows(windows 10 at least). Edit: you game at 55 then, appreciate the data point. Seems like your hiss and mine are probably the same. At 55, most games' ambience drowns out the hiss, but I can't personally use 55 over a minute or so.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    One important note is that the hiss is a constant volume, so you may be listening louder than some others which would more easily drown it out. I've kinda settled into 28 or 30/100 for the volume level of my mobius in windows. Anything higher is too loud for me but I will say that louder drowns...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Yea you're right. I guess things got heated, part of the whole long wait crowdfunding thing. Ultimately I've decided to keep mine. The virtual surround is simply incredible, and for about half my music the hiss isn't too troublesome. These will be sold off the day the Smyth Realizer is...

    I used 35db as an example, most room noise being 35db. But for me personally, the hiss is about as loud as my room ambience. We would need that chart to know how much the hiss actually is. I updated my post to use X instead of a number, that was my bad.

    It is a bit louder than the ANC hiss I've heard. Also if their argument is that the hiss is the same volume as room noise that's an issue. Xdb of ambient room noise is far different than Xdb of a specific range hiss centimeters from your ear. Yes the hiss is about the same volume as my room/ac...

    Thank you. I really don't like how audeze has picked one person to speak for them about this issue and he's now downplaying himself. I heard it, my SO heard it, now my group of friends have all heard it. It's there, end of. Come talk to us @Audeze

    The hissing is there in wireless bluetooth, and aux(3.5mm) mode without the usb even plugged in.
