I recently received a pair of Audeze Mobius to review and I have to agree with Lisabel's "HOLY SHIT!"
I am too new with these cans to give them a thorough review but my initial impression is that Audeze has figured out how to make their incredible planar magnetic headphone technology accessible to folks for an all-in price of around $400.
Typically, if you dive into the world of high-end audiophile headphones you are going to need a DAC and a specialized headphone amplifier in addition to cans. There is a lot of dickery about which headphones and what components sound best to whomever the hell is writing in an internet forum at this exact moment in time.
The Audeze Mobius have all the hardware built-in to the set of headphones!
You do not need to spend 1-2x more on components than you already did on headphones. You can take the Mobius out of the box, connect them via USB, Bluetooth or a 3.5mm jack to almost any source. You absolutely everything you need and can skip there "where is that one magic cable?" experience after spending $1000s on gear you can not connect.
While billed as "Gaming" headphones the Mobius are really much, much more than that. I am looking forward to a call with Audeze CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram sometime this week to start really diving into the functionality of the headset.
I was blown away with them in video games. Watching TV and movies are a whole new world where the audio is really evocative of a well-designed movie theater.
Can't wait to play with them more.

Publisher's Note: I consulted for Audeze, under a prior CEO, for a few months, seven or eight years ago. I have had no contact with the company since and am reviewing the headphones because I am super enthusiastic about the technology.
