    I came to the conclusion that mobius for music is too tiring, and hard to listen to, I like a softer musicality. in the movies, however, he has no rivals

    What eq preset were you using, and what source were you using to listen?

    preset: default / music but more often default, 3d auto always active. source: imac-iphone .... I'm starting to wonder if maybe the "gaming headset" factor is a complication in using these headphones for movies and music. because I repeat: I am not a gamer

    Buddy bought the Mobius based on my recommendation and he’s been happy as hell. One of us!

    As far as music being tiring, thats interesting. Try another source app.

    Have you tried the warm preset? That should soften things up and puts a figurative warm wet towel between you and the music :) it's too soft for me though, I prefer the default.
  7. Zenvota
    Sounds like the default curve is a little bright for you. It is for me ;] Like @foreverzer0 said, try the Warm preset. If that's not to your liking, it's not really to mine either Dx use a separate equalizer. I can't advise on what to use for iOS, for Android I use USB Audio Player Pro.

    Most importantly it just consists of reducing ~3.5khz down by about 5db. This will make music much less fatiguing and more enjoyable for you. If you feel like trying it, changing the pads can smooth treble a bit too, while expanding the soundstage further and improving imaging a bit. more comfortable as well, but a little involved ;]

    Thank you all for the answers!
    nevertheless I will keep mobius that in the movies is unbeatable, a cinema!
    I don't see the hot preset ... Do I need to upgrade the firmware?

    I don't know how it came out!

    I can't find "warm", do I need to update the firmware? now I have the qc35II that I have to give back to amazon, these have a sweeter sound with music, but I won't keep them because in the movies mobius wins, and in the music it's just less sweet and more tiring (vs qc35II), but I trust in "warm ": D

    Ya, the Warm Preset is in the firmware update. The Mobius can have a balanced or even darker sound, just takes some tinkering.

    okay thanks then I update, because I repeat, apart from the "hardness" of the signature, it is the best headset I have ever tried, far superior to Oppo's PM-3 (also planar magnetic) .... I have a question: on the audeze website, in the "applications section" mobius falls into most of the use cases except for "studio / pro audio" so audeze does not indicate them for music?
  14. Zenvota
    Studio / prostudio generally indicates recording/design, either music, games, or movies. Intended uses of the Mobius are games, movies... and music =p Prefered sound signatures vary wildly, from a dark audioquest nightowl, to a bright airy akg k1000, to a boomy bassy pos vmoda(ya i said it), to a reference shure535.

    I just updated the firmware, but i’m puzzled because the procedure did not end with a "process completed with success", but I had to disconnect the headphones from the PC after about 1 hour. but apparently seems to have been successful, the sound seems more open, and there is the aforementioned "warm", the only "defect", is that it seems a volume a little less powerful
