    Any chance on shipping from an EU distributor or something like that?

    Early bird price is pretty much useless, with overseas shipping and import taxes ..

    Having just tried this, but with an X7 instead of the Mixamp, and I feel that it's just too much processing/reverb. Personally with this method, I'd turn on the Mixamp's virtual surround, but turn off the 3D audio on the Mobius. The Mobius does a fine job with external virtual surround DSPs when using the Aux input. You do miss out on head tracking though.

    My two cents.

    I previously tried it with my X7 but I had the volume on the amp turned too high and was getting noise, but after lowering it, it sounds just fine. I wouldn't have any problem gaming with the Mobius on consoles like the PS4 now.

    Hmm. I'm in. Interesting to see how quickly it's selling, as at least 500+ purchases in the past 4 hours too.

    Just ordered 2 more for gifts.

    ait so they good for gaming, which I dont do much anymore.
    Will they be worth buying for music alone?
  6. RatFarm
    I ordered a copper one!

    I agree with you on the double processing increasing reverb. If it's too much, disabling the 3D engine is the way to go. If Audeze ever comes out with a Mobius that supports both console and PC, it'll be a day 1 purchase for me. For now though, I'm ok with the increased reverb level on my Mixamp/Mobius combo.

    @Audeze will this product be completly certified for the EU market? I ask, because wireless devices need intensive testing in our customs and the testing will be much more expensive than the headphone, that is for sure.So does it have complete CE certification?

    Absolutely. Wireless + music = hnnnnng

    Though not sure you'll be engaging headtracking much for music, unless you want to feel like you're listening to two speakers in a room, as opposed to headphones.
  10. Audeze
    Yes. This works an you can even have two audio sources connected. One to BT and one to USB and switch between them. For example answer a phone call on BT, when you are connected over USB by switching to BT and then back.
    Yes. We are working on them. We will have complete certification for every market we sell the headphones into

    Just bought a copper unit, mainly for gaming but they also sound like the ultimate "office cans"!

    I'll be gaming on Xbox Live - do I need a workaround for 3D/surround to work on console?
  12. Mad Lust Envy Contributor
    The virtual surround is mainly tied to usb/pc. It won't work to its full extent on Xbox. Workaround will be to get an external virtual surround device, and plug the Mobius aux cable into that. Like a Mixamp. Otherwise, you're just gonna be expanding 2 channels into a less than ideal surround virtual room, which sounds more like you're listening to a pair of stereo speakers, which aren't going to give you any real 360 degree positional cues.

    Long story short, if your main use is console gaming, this honestly isn't the best product for that.

    Im going to skip this product due to its lack of compatibility with the consoles.Hopefully @Audeze brings a console version to market soon.I will be all over it.

    The price is about to go up if it did not already.
  15. Saoshyant
    I think I was number 13 at the new price. Oh well, still a good deal if it pans out.
