Introducing Audeze Mobius:

It’s more than a headphone, it’s an experience

At Audeze, we create products that break the mold and change the rules.  We strive to create magical experiences for our customers that go beyond just being an ordinary headphone.   We have been at the forefront of the planar revolution, honoring the audiophile and exciting the audio pro.  Movies, television, and video games are all experiencing an era of unprecedented transformation. Additionally, media consumption is undergoing extraordinary changes.

We wanted to create a headphone that could enhance this new frontier and provide an immersive cinematic experience that echoes the scope and grandeur the gaming and media world has become.  Mobius is our take on the ultimate gaming and media headphone.

Mobius is more than a headphone, it is an experience, an opportunity to dynamically interlace your gaming audio in a 3D environment around yourself: to truly live and exist within your media.  Whether it’s a plane flying overhead or the rustling of brush from an enemy behind, the Mobius breathes life into every experience, taking the game from the screen to an entire room.

Delivering strategic advantage to take your game to the next level

Mobius is the first premium high-end, fully immersive 3D cinematic audio and head tracking-enabled headphone designed specifically for gamers. Mobius harnesses Audeze’s award winning planar magnetic technology and combines it with leading-edge head-tracking, room emulation, and sound localization technologies to unlock the full potential of gaming audio.

Bringing Audeze’s award-winning audiophile sound to the gaming world

Audeze headphones have achieved worldwide acclaim among music industry professionals and audiophiles alike for their pure, spacious, and highly detailed sound and for innovation which has kept Audeze on the cutting-edge of audio technology for a decade.

Conceived under the belief that audio quality should never be compromised for the sake of utility, Mobius will be the first headphone to provide the unsurpassed level of detail, clarity, and positional accuracy of planar magnetic drivers in a feature-rich package designed specifically around the needs of both professional and casual gamers.

Want to customize your audio mix to better accentuate those details which are most important to you?

Mobius features a diverse array of EQ presets that will make that award-winning soundtrack even more rich and vibrant, those explosions even more impactful, and those gunshots even more precise.

Looking for the edge that’s finally going to push you to the top of the leaderboards?

Mobius’ technology truly optimizes the way your brain processes sound.  It breathes life into your game, spreading immersion beyond your monitor and encapsulating your whole room.   More specifically, with Mobius you will be able to hear your opponent sneaking up behind you, before you even see them, as clearly as if they were in the room with you!

Designed for comfortable, long-term use

But what good is all this great sound if the headphone is uncomfortable?  We designed Mobius with comfort in mind.

Mobius’ advanced technology and lightweight, ergonomic design provides comfortable, long-term use and reduced listening fatigue. Comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of fully replaceable, contoured memory foam ear pads and an adjustable, durable memory-foam padded, headband.

Mobius is tuned in the Audeze labs to reproduce a very natural sounding environment resulting in reduced listening fatigue and allowing you to enjoy your headphones for long periods of time.

Featuring crystal-clear voice quality

In online gaming, it is important not just to hear the smallest details, but also to be heard by your team.

Mobius comes with a flexible and detachable boom microphone with built-in noise attenuation, mute/unmute functionality, and independent microphone volume controls to provide professional voice quality.  Dictate your team strategy without having to worry about the details getting lost in translation.

Switching to a single player game?  Simply detach the microphone and store for future use.

Plug and play with your favorite devices

While Mobius includes a wealth of ground-breaking features: it remains intuitively compatible with all of your favorite devices. Interface with your gaming rig or mobile device using USB, USB-C, or auxiliary connections.

Want to go wireless for mobile gaming?

Mobius also features Bluetooth functionality with almost three times the data bandwidth as other Bluetooth headphones. This level of versatility allows you to enjoy all of the benefits of Mobius on whichever platform you prefer.

 Not just the world’s most innovative gaming headphone, Mobius is a truly immersive, mixed media platform

Mobius is on the cutting edge of audio technology, offering gamers top tier technologies:

What’s inside MOBIUS?

Mobius creates immersive cinematic 3D audio using a rich assortment of technologies and features.  At the foundation of Mobius’ great sound is our cutting edge planar magnetic technology that creates an accurate, distortion free, immersive sound, one that produces a real-world listening experience.  With materials originally designed for NASA, Audeze’s drivers are the most powerful and effective transducers in the world and make the Mobius sound just as incredible.  You won’t find this driver technology in any other gaming headphone!

The most technologically advanced headphone

Mobius’ leading-edge technologies work together to take you from inside your headphone and out of your head into your content. You need all of these technologies to create realistic 3D audio and to produce immersive cinematic experience.

•  Full 3D emulation with support for popular surround soundmodes (7.1, 5.1, 5.0, 2.1, 2.0)
•  Integrated head tracking that tracks the tiniest movements of your head 1000 times a second
•  Pin point sound localization
•  Anatomy calibration to tailor the sound to the user
•  Full room emulation
•   Mobius integrates Waves Nx technology for real-time 3D processing in hardware

ACCURATE SOUND LOCALIZATION

Mobius creates a compelling surround sound experience with accurate 3D sound localization. Sound localization is a listener’s ability to identify the location or origin of a detected sound, both in direction and by distance. The brain uses a variety of cues to precisely do so, the primary of these being the difference of timing and intensity of a sound as it reaches each ear.  These differences enable the brain to accurately locate sounds.

CUSTOMIZABLE ROOM EMULATION

The sound we hear comes directly from the source and also from multiple reflections of the sound on room walls and other objects. The brain uses the difference between the primary source and reflections to determine space. Mobius uses a very sophisticated customizable room model to create a sense of space.

INTEGRATED HEAD TRACKING

Adding head tracking to headphones enhances the experience of immersion in the game. Mobius precisely tracks head movements 1000 times a second and feeds the 3D emulation algorithm with head position information to aid sound localization and ultimately eliminate the cone of confusion: the brain’s inability to place sounds directly in front or behind without head movement.

THE MOST CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED HEADPHONE BRAND IN THE WORLD

PickyEar.com recently analyzed 310,067 headphone reviews to answer this question: What is the best headphone brand?  They looked at expert reviews. They looked at reputable forum reviews. They even looked at regular-user reviews.

“Audeze is the only real champion to the throne of headphones.

Each Audeze headphone has its own characteristics, but they offer the same level of quality across their range of products.”

A JOURNEY INTO AUDIO

Our story begins in 2008 at a small garage in the suburbs of Orange County, California with a vision and commitment to develop headphones that deliver the highest sound quality possible. We produced our first headphones in that garage. We also found our name there. Hanging on the wall was a movie poster for the classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. Wanting our company to deliver a “journey through audio,” the name Audeze (pronounced “odyssey”) was a perfect fit.

We have grown since our beginning and are now internationally recognized for our leading-edge technology and innovation. To this date, our headphones continue to be designed and engineered in our Southern California facility.

Audeze’s headphones connect you to your music in its purest form.  Many other brands of headphones add colorations to the sound, like pumped-up bass, a peaky midrange, or grating high frequencies.  That’s not Audeze.  Building upon the many strengths of planar magnetic technology, Audeze has significantly advanced the art of transducer design and delivers the most exciting and engaging audio experience.

“If you’re passionate about music like we are, you’ll have songs and albums you have listened to for your whole life. You’ve heard these songs in a million different places on a million different systems. We are confident that the first time you listen to an Audeze headphone, you will discover details in the music you may have never heard before.”

– Sankar Thiagasamudram, CEO Audeze

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY

Every Audeze headphone employs cutting-edge planar magnetic technology for more accurate, high-quality audiophile sound. Our headphones use proprietary, custom-cast magnets placed on one or both sides of the diaphragm to create a powerful magnetic field. The result is our high-end planar magnetic technology connects you to your favorite artists and musicians as if you were right there at the original event.

BUILT FOR PERFORMANCE

Audeze designs every headphone with quality first and foremost in mind. Our headphones are put through exacting inspections and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility for world-wide distribution. Audeze’s advanced manufacturing process combined with the latest materials and technology produces extremely accurate and incredible sounding headphones.

UNCOMPROMISED AUDIO

Since we produced our first headphone in 2008, our headphones have earned multiple awards, rave reviews and are the top choice of artists and audiophiles worldwide.
