Audeze Announces Penrose Wireless Headset for Xbox, PlayStation, PC

Audeze, the leading premium audiophile headphone manufacturer, today announces the launch of their new Penrose wireless headset aimed at console and PC gamers. Extending Audeze's family of gaming headphones that includes the high-end LCD-GX and the Mobius 3D Surround Sound PC gaming headset, the Penrose is designed with Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Sony's PlayStation 5 in mind. Penrose is equipped with Audeze's 100 mm planar magnetic drivers, a broadcast quality microphone for enhanced chat and streaming, and a 2.4 GHz low-latency lossless wireless connection, so gamers can experience the best in audio quality and wireless functionality.

To commemorate this announcement, the Audeze Penrose is now available to pre-order for the limited promotional price of 249 GBP (~315 USD). Pre-order details can be found here with shipments expected in early September.
The Penrose microphone was engineered to bring enhanced voice quality for chat and streaming. Its flexible boom construction makes positional adjustments effortless, and built-in noise filters reduce up to 20dB of background sound so players can communicate with greater confidence.

The Penrose wireless headset comes with a USB dongle that can be connected to Xbox Series X, launching this fall, or PlayStation 5 gaming consoles, as well as current generation consoles and desktop computer systems.

Penrose can also be connected to mobile devices using Bluetooth 5.0, with support for SBC and AAC codecs. Both wireless and Bluetooth connections can be activated simultaneously, allowing users to customize their Penrose sound settings in real time using the Audeze HQ mobile and desktop app.

The Audeze Penrose wireless planar magnetic headset comes in two versions, Penrose (for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles, and Windows and Mac desktops) and Penrose X (for Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles, and Windows desktops).
Features:
  • Audeze 100 mm planar magnetic drivers
  • Broadcast quality microphone
  • 2.4 GHz lossless low-latency wireless
  • Bluetooth 5.0 (SBC and AAC)
  • Audeze HQ mobile and desktop app with custom EQ and sidetone toggling
"We're excited to finally offer gamers a true wireless planar headset," says Audeze CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram, adding "Penrose is a huge leap forward for wireless console gaming audio and we can't wait for people to hear it."

Wow, a $315 headset to go with your $500 console. I'm gonna guess this won't sell too greatly.
