More On: Maxwell

Audeze makes some really awesome planar headsets and today they are announcing a brand new set for gamers. The Audeze Maxwell is a wireless gaming headset that's tailored for low latency audio and long battery life which is rated at 80+ hours.

They feature 90mm Planar Magnetic drivers which have an audio frequency response range of 10Hz to 50kHz. To achieve low latency audio from your computer or console, it uses a USB-C dongle to connect to your system of choice. But it also has Bluetooth connectivity if you want to connect to say your phone. There's plenty of codec support too with LE Audio, LC3, LC3Plus, LDAC, AAC, and SBC support.

Communication is done through a detachable boom mic and it's got an A.I. powered hardware noise filter to help bring your voice to the forefront and mask out any environmental sound that you don't want to transmit to your friends.

The Maxwell comes in two editions. The Xbox version is compatible with all the Microsoft consoles as well as PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and the Nintendo Switch. It will cost $329 and comes with a license for Dolby Atmos.

The PlayStation version comes in a little less expensive at $299 and will not have the Dolby Atmos license, but it will be compatible with the same devices as the Xbox version but switching Xbox consoles with PlayStation consoles of course.

The Audeze Maxwell will be available sometime in January.
