Gamers, audiophiles, cinephiles, or anyone looking for high-resolution audio will rejoice over the carbon Audeze Mobius, a pair of fully immersive 3D cinematic audio and head-tracking-enabled headphones. By harnessing Audeze's planar magnetic technologies, the Mobius unlocks the full potential of gaming audio, movies, music, and more.
The headphones are fully integrated with 360° surround sound functionality and provide an awe-inspiring cinematic experience that one would expect from a high-definition theatre. The Mobius headphones use Waves Nx technology to enhance the realism of 3D audio and provide sound localization, integrated head tracking, and room emulation.
Other notable features include replaceable contoured memory-foam earpads, an adjustable memory-foam padded headband, wireless Bluetooth, and a flexible and detachable boom microphone with built-in noise attenuation, mute/unmute functionality, and independent volume controls that provide professional voice quality. The free Audeze HQ app allows you to fully customise your sound experience with HRTF customization and sound profile selection. The Audeze Mobius headphones ship with a detachable microphone, two USB cables, a 3.5mm analogue audio cable, and a travel bag.

Not just the world’s most innovative gaming headphones, Mobius is a truly immersive, mixed-media platform:
With fully-integrated surround sound functionality, Mobius produces the same awe-inspiring cinematic experience you would find in a theatre. Immerse yourself in your favourite movie. Unplug and listen to music, binge-watch Netflix or re-watch Game of Thrones in full 360 surround sound audio.
Audeze Mobius Utilises Waves Nx Technology to Enhance Realism of 3D audio Waves is the world-leading developer of audio DSP technologies and the driving power behind hit records, major motion pictures and popular video games the world over. A recipient of a Technical GRAMMY® Award, Waves is acclaimed by top professional and prosumer users worldwide.
To produce the most realistic, immersive 3D audio, in addition to our drivers, you need three technologies. Mobius is the first to push the boundaries on all three.
Advanced 3D audio spatialization:
Working in conjunction with the Audeze HQ application, the Mobius headset boasts an unprecedented level of 3D surround sound virtualisation, combining head movement tracking technology (with analysis 1000 times per second) and full room simulation. Thus, with each movement, you will feed the algorithm, which will then automatically adjust the orientation of the sound source so that you feel as if you are in the middle of the action at all times!
But you can go even further by using the Audeze HQ application. Thanks to the latter, it is possible to optimise the rendering of the 3D visualisation with the help of the numerous parameters available. And to benefit from total immersion, you will also be able to enter your own morphology (head size, the distance between your ears...), so that the software can adjust its operation as precisely as possible.
Play in absolute comfort:
To ensure that you play in the best possible conditions, the Mobius is fitted with generous memory foam cushions, so that you can maintain a constant level of comfort over time!
As an added bonus, the materials used have been chosen for their good heat dissipation properties, so you'll stay cool even during your most tense games.
In terms of connectivity, the possibilities are numerous: USB-A, USB Type-C, mini-jack or even Bluetooth for maximum freedom with an average autonomy of 10 hours!
The strategic advantage to take your game to the next level:
Comfortable, long-term use: But what good is all this great sound, if the headphones are uncomfortable? We designed Mobius with comfort in mind. Mobius’ comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of fully replaceable, contoured memory foam ear pads and an adjustable, durable memory-foam pad headband.
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.
Featuring Bluetooth functionality with almost three times the data bandwidth as other Bluetooth headphones, Mobius gives you the choice to go wireless.
Do I need any special software for this to work?
No, this is not an encode/decode system. Mobius is designed specifically to provide you with the ease of a plug-and-play setup. There is a software application for Windows that can be used to customise the headphone audio for those that so choose. This will work without any need for external software. However, the special Mobius creator edition will require plugins for VR and AR content creation. These will work with Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Android (with the correct USB audio drivers in use).
We will release an application for Windows that will allow firmware updates, and customization based on head geometry, and room size. App support for other platforms will depend on demand.
Will Mobius work with my Xbox/Playstation/Switch?
Mobius will work with Xbox/PS4/Switch using only the analogue cable (or Bluetooth if applicable). USB audio will not work with these devices. However, head tracking, room emulation, and spatialization also work in analogue and Bluetooth modes. So, even though you don't get USB audio, the analogue connection with 3D audio is very compelling.
Will this work with my iPhone?
Mobius will work with iDevices using Bluetooth and Analog connections. There is no native Lightning connectivity. We’ve unfortunately determined that Mobius will not be able to support the Apple Camera Connection Kit (CCK) at launch. During our extensive testing, we’ve run into issues utilising the adapter that resulted in a loss of stability. We will continue working to improve support for the Camera Connection Kit for a possible future firmware update. However, we cannot guarantee success in this regard. To avoid delaying Mobius production, we will offer support for iOS devices via Bluetooth and Analog.
Mobius is a critical hit!
Don’t just take our word for it, hear what others have shared about the incredible Mobius experience:
"A good analogy would be comparing Mobius to an audio equivalent of what VR headsets do for the visual component of games. We played some Assassin’s Creed Origins and listened to some music and both instances sounded as if I was in the middle of whatever scenario was going on, whether it was a jazz combo playing or some angry man with a sword trying to kill me.”
"The soundstage of the Mobius headphones exhibited was immensely wide, which is by design, but — and this is the thing that will especially appeal to gamers — it was the precise positioning of each rebound that was most impressive."
With extremely advanced and integrated head tracking to create an uncanny sense of surround realism, the Audeze Mobius is something far greater than just a gaming headset. Mobius is a highly sophisticated mixed media platform, and it's amazing."
"Instead of relying on flashing lights and other gaudy gimmicks, Audeze is entering the headphone space with meaningful innovation. Building on the foundation of its planar magnetic drivers, the company has created a headset that can deliver 3D audio and sound localization that enhance video games as well as music, videos and phone calls."
