The Penrose has one of the best speakers you can get for gaming. The 100mm planar magnetic are some of the best around. The sound quality is so good you will swear the game is alive in your head. So moving onto the headset its self. The build quality is good with reinforced heavy plastics a cushy head rest and ear cups. The cups are a cooling foam with a faux leather exterior. The wireless feature works very well with the provided USB dongle. I have used it on both my Xbox Series X and My gaming PC. The Bluetooth is 5.0 and excellent quality but I always use the wireless feature and pair it with my phone. While the battery is lacking at 15 hours of play time it's not to bad, and the USB-C charging is fast. Comes with a phone and PC apps to adjust the headset and update it. All in all on of the best headsets on the market, and if you have the extra money it is well worth it.

Pros

  • Sound Quality
  • Build Quality
  • PC and Phone app

Cons

  • mic quality
  • battery Size

I've been gaming with different headsets for over 30 years.You have to experience the soundstage & imaging for yourself to believe it. I even prefer my audeze to my more expensive audiophile openbacks.Just look after them,don't throw them around & you will be fine.

Pros

  • Planar drivers
  • Bluetooth connection
  • Five presets

Cons

  • Poor build
  • Earcups get to hot

Design

Fit

Over-ear

The fit of the headset.
has a detachable cable
βœ”Audeze Penrose
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
weight

320g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
cable length

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
has RGB lighting
βœ–Audeze Penrose
RGB lighting allows you to choose between millions of colors and customize the look of your PC components.
can be folded
βœ–Audeze Penrose
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
has an open-back design
βœ–Audeze Penrose
The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.
has a tangle free cable
βœ–Audeze Penrose
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
has stereo speakers
βœ”Audeze Penrose
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Sound quality

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
impedance

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
has a neodymium magnet
βœ”Audeze Penrose
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
has passive noise reduction
βœ”Audeze Penrose
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.

Microphone

These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
lowest mic frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
highest mic frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
has a removable microphone
βœ”Audeze Penrose
The microphone can be attached or detached if necessary.
has a mute function
βœ”Audeze Penrose
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
mic sensitivity

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Power

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
The time it takes to fully charge the battery.
battery power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
has a rechargeable battery
βœ”Audeze Penrose
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
has a battery level indicator
βœ”Audeze Penrose
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
has a removable battery
βœ–Audeze Penrose
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
