    I expect they'll sound like Jude, Audeze and Mad Lust Envy said the prototypes sounded. Really good. Not audeze LCD X with good app and DAC good, but better than Sine and better than most headphones at their pricepoint good. A friend tried them out at Cam Jam with whom I have similar tastes and he was really impressed.

    We really will just have to wait and see

    Those that got in on the Indiegogo campaign the first day by credit card, were you charged right away? I didnt look. My card recently had fraud perpetrated against it, and I was issued a new one w/a new number. So if a charge for this is pending to be applied when shipped, that wont go thru for me. Thanx for all replies.

    I should have been pretty close to the first 24 hours if not within it, I think I remember being charged right away, and Indiegogo has the refund option for my order, which implies I was charged.

    I see what you did there...:beerchug:

    But yeah, it was charged instantly for me too.

    After reading that I looked into if PS4 offered USB audio out and apparently it does but only to approved headsets. Apparently there are very few other than Sony’s own headset so that’s great news for Audeze! Now, if only Xbox One offered the same option...

    Has that been confirmed anywhere by anyone? Does the PS4 output surround via usb or just plain stereo?
  10. Audeze
    Mobius will have a special USB mode (switchable using some button combination) that will allow it to be used with a PS4 with USB. Headtracking and 3D emulation will work. Only Stereo is supported over USB for PS4.
    Audeze Stay updated on Audeze at their sponsor page on Head-Fi.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Well, at least we'll get better audio quality via that connection then using AUX via the dualshock controller. Neat!

    Xbox’s audio outputs are limited to the 3.5mm jack on the controller, optical (on some models), and HDMI. There is also a very rarely used Microsoft/XBox certification that peripheral manufacturers can pay (per unit built) to have Microsoft add driver support for USB audio devices.

    The bottleneck to Mobius will be that unless the user is using a USB connection to a PC or Mac, then they’ll be getting stereo sound. Which is totally fine as that’s what we’re used to even if it doesn’t maximize Mobius’ potential. As far as I’m aware the Xbox One can output uncompressed stereo via the 3.5mm output on the controller, impressively enough. There are also options like listening to Apple TV via Bluetooth AAC. While it’d be ideal to have some sort of solution to listen to surround sound mixes natively with other devices, even if it’s a premium accessory, stereo is good enough for most headphones and the 3D tracking should still be impressive enough.
