You might not think about this much, but there’s a problem with most headphones: The stereo imaging moves with you as you move your head around — the soundstage is bolted securely to each earcup. The Audeze Mobius uses Waves Nx head-tracking tech to position the audio in 3D space around you. As you turn your head, the audio stays fixed so you feel like it really surrounds you. That’s a whole new level of immersion. And right now, you can get thewhen you apply the exclusive CNET discount code CNET25 at checkout.
That’s 25% off and matches the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the Mobius.
The Mobius is a remarkable headset. I’ve used it, and the audio quality is superb. One of the best gaming headsets I’ve ever worn, it uses more advanced planar transducers rather than cone drivers, which is what you’ll find in virtually all headphones short of audiophile models. You get full 7.1-channel virtual surround support along with the aforementioned Waves Nx head-tracking surround audio, which you need to experience firsthand to appreciate.
Yes, the Mobius is pricey. I know many people will balk at spending $300 on headphones, but these aren’t just for gaming — they’re premium cans that will satisfy aspiring audiophiles for music as well. And at 25% off, you’re unlikely to see a better price on these headphones anytime soon.
