@Audeze Does it need to support the 3D sound that Sony Playstation 5 is really advertising? Or do you have to buy Sony's headphones to benefit from that "3D Sound" they are investing heavily in?

Anyone have a link for information on Penrose vs. Mobius vs. Hyperx Orbit?

Oh this is exciting! I play only on PS4, and tried my Mobius with it but it wasn't the most convenient having to connect to it via USB.

Does the Penrose for PS4 have a party chat:game audio slider for example if I wanted to hear my party chat more prominently and less of the game audio? Or will we have to adjust the ratio in the PS4 settings.

@Audeze , I experienced some crazy permanent driver flex with the Audeze Mobius. It was my fault too that I squished them against my head too much, but I wasn't that rough - the driver was still flexed and crinkled afterward, unable to reset itself to the default position which is usually the case with all-plastic drivers, but these are coated with metal.

Is this perhaps something that you've addressed in this model? Seriously, it's not like I mashed them against my head, and there was another report from a user that didn't even purposefully push them against his head but after removing the pads the driver was also crinkled, that was the only reason I returned the Mobius. Thanks in advance!

I am fairly confident that Sony will go all in on allowing their 3D Audio to be pushed over BT and USB. It only makes sense.
Now we only need more game designers to design good immersive audio.

@Audeze @KMann

Are there minor technical, tuning differences to the Mobius driver? What did you guys change?

Looking forward to getting these.
Sadly the postage to buy them directly is a bit high at almost $80us making them cost prohibitive. The local distributor does not yet show them for pre order. Though given the prices they usually charge in excess of what would be conversion rates, shipping and taxes it’s likely it will still be far cheaper to pay the $330us pre order discounted price.

@Audeze
Any news as to whether the local distributors will be offering the pre order discount?

Most of them should be offering the discount.

@Audeze - Will there be dongle for Xbox X and PS4/5 for sale individually separate from the headset, so that we don't need to get two headsets if we have both systems?

exciting product, I will definitely take a closer look... just like that on the terrace with the iPad it could be interesting.

Thanks for the introduction!

Might have to sell my only very recently acquired Mobius to get these -- I value the 2.4GHz low-latency wireless over the 3D and head tracking stuff of the Mobius, so Penrose makes more sense for me.

@Audeze does this have sidetone / zero-latency monitoring of the microphone like Mobius? That's an important thing for me. I currently use the Audio Technica G1WL which has this feature.

Watching these keenly - waiting to find out about game/chat mix on Playstation though - if it doesn't have it my search continues (or I'll have to change console allegiance :p ).
