Outstanding Piece Of Audio Technology!

Crutchfield customer from Raleigh, NC on 3/7/2021

Where do I start? I had never heard of "Audeze" prior to doing my research looking for the best headphones for my PS5. I had the Sony 3D Pulse headphones at first but knew that they sounded "ok" but nowhere near an audiophile level. Then I got these "open box" due to them being sold out everywhere... which also explains their popularity and how good they must be! If this is any indication of Crutchfield's open box claims from their website... there is no reason to hesitate to purchase. The box appeared to had barely been touched and the the headphones, usb dongle and instructions and warranty paperwork were all in like new condition. The headphones appeared to had never been worn or used as well! Immediately I was blown away by the craftsmanship of the headphones, the heft of the drivers & most of all the clarity and fidelity of the sound coming from the drivers! I was hearing things from games that I had been playing for weeks that I had never noticed before... birds cawing in the background in the woods in Red Dead Redemption 2, billets whistling by from undisclosed directions in Uncharted 4, footsteps of people trying to sneak up on me in Last Of Us 2. Even with my pair turned up to the max volume, I never heard any distortion of muffled sounds at all... everything is crisp and clear! These headphones are simply amazing out of the box with no adjustments to the factory settings in the app. They were so good that I immediately purchased the Penrose X for my Series X as well

Pros: Great Design & craftsmanship, Easy Plug & Play Setup, Audiophile level sound & bass with zero distortion and unrivaled clarity, great features out of the box with simultaneous 2.4 wireless/Bluetooth/wired options, Great comfort and adjustable, AUDEZE NOW FULLY COMPATIBLE WITH MAC SOFTWARE & NOT ONLY WINDOWS!!!!

Cons: Absolutely nothing

Good sound, but awful headset

Crutchfield customer from Amelia, OH on 2/21/2021

These headphones failed me terribly. While the audio was some of the best audio I've ever heard from a gaming headset, I would not recommend them. They feel cheap, are uncomfortable, the mic droops down, and the features are awful. The mic on my headset stopped working on my PlayStation, and on my PC, they would just randomly turn off on certain games despite being fully charged. They have to be hooked to a PC to see battery life and adjust the EQ. Windows can't control the volume of the headset like most headsets, you have to manually turn the headset down itself which is annoying. The wireless range is pretty weak. I ended up replacing them with the a model from a different manufacturer, and while the audio quality isn't as good, the features and ease of use put it to shame.

Pros: Good audio quality

Cons: Uncomfortable No battery indicator Has to be wire connected to a PC to see battery level No mute indicator (just switch) Mic droops down Randomly turned off Mic randomly not working Feels cheap Bad design

Sound Quality excellent, everything else poor

Charles from Brooklyn, NY on 2/10/2021

Unfortunately I had to return the headset. Pros Sound quality is definitely very good. I heard every footstep clearly in Warzone and Apex. Negatives The default EQ was so sharp that it hurt my ears. Only way to change EQ is to physically plug in to computer and upload a new EQ setting, then unplug and restart the headset. There is no way to store more than 1 EQ. I needed to unplug and replug my USB to my computer every time I wanted the adapter to be recognized by my computer. Battery Life was not great. I returned the headset a month after I bought it because the mic stopped transmitting sound to my PC. I could still hear it with survey mode (i.e. my own voice bac kto me from the mic), but my computer registered 0 audio. I think a gaming company needs to make an audiophile headset, not the other way around.
