If you've just experienced deja vu, it's because the HyperX Orbit S headset we went hands-on last evening packs Audeze-made planar magnetic drivers, and features head-tracking. Californian audiophile headphones and DAC maker Audeze fancies a bigger slice of the gaming audio pie, and has swan-dived into the competitive market with a feature-packed monstrosity, the Mobius.

The Audeze Mobius is an around-the-ear gaming headset that packs the company's finest 50 mm-class planar-magnetic drivers that have been tuned with a gaming-optimized sound-stage; and incorporates head-tracking positional audio technology, much like the HyperX Cloud Orbit S. On the software side of things, a virtual surround DSP takes in real-time input from the headset on the exact spatial position of your head compared to a static display (much like a VR HMD), and accordingly moves the audio perspective. The software is pretty intuitive and lightweight, and doesn't come with too much DSP bloat. We went ears-on with one of these, and the sound-quality blew our minds first, and the realism the head-tracking feature adds to gameplay took care of the rest. Head-tracking audio headsets could gain popularity among gamers who don't want a display within an inch of their eyes.

Different tech. Popular Magnetic planars are HiFiman's also. Audeze make some pretty solid headphones.

I tried these out for 30 days, but returned them. They sounded amazing, the head tracking was on point, and the surround sound was awesome. It was only that they were wired that I returned them, I was looking for wireless, which they are just not for pc. They are USB-C to USB-A, cable was on the short side and if I didn't have the Sennheiser gaming DAC and headphones, I probably would have kept them. Eventhough sound wise they blow them away, in BFV I almost went deaf on th AA guns.
