Always the innovator, Audeze’s CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram has led the company through many of the industry’s firsts – Lightning cable capability, wafer-thin planar-driver diaphragms and now into the gaming sector with the DSP-oriented Mobius headphone.

RMAF 2018: Audeze LCD2 Closed-Back with Chord Hugo TT2 and M Scaler

By | October 30th, 2018|Categories: Innerfidelity|

CANJAM at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest this year was a beehive of activity with both young and old darting from table to table and eagerly throwing on headphones and spending extended amounts of time conducting listening sessions and asking a plethora of questions of those company employees tasked with manning the high-traffic booths.

The Audeze section was no exception, especially with new models like the LCD2 Closed-Back ($899 USD) set-up for demos, here with the daunting duo of the Chord Hugo TT2 DAC, preamplifier and headphone amplifier ($5,795 USD) and one million-tap digital upscaler Hugo M Scaler.… Read the full article

Audeze Mobius: the most advanced gaming headset ever made?

By | October 1st, 2018|Categories: TechRadar|

Audeze is already one of the best headphone-makers in the world. It makes incredible planar magnetic headphones, some of which costs thousands of pounds.

It's no surprise that when Audeze puts its expertise into a gaming headset, we end up with something very special indeed. This is the Audeze Mobius. Much more than just a normal set, it tracks your head position for even more immersive 3D surround sound. 

And, no, you don't have to pay thousands for this headset, but a much less scary £349.… Read the full article

Audeze Mobius Preview

By | September 5th, 2018|Categories: Innerfidelity|

Audeze’s Sankar Thiagasamudram was curious if I’d be interested in his company’s latest effort – the $399 USD Mobius – targeted mainly at gamers and multi-channel audio-mastering professionals in the film industry.

The Mobius features a suite of software management tools utilizing Waves Nx DSP technology that allows for an incredible amount of personalized sonic customization. According to Audeze “Waves is … the driving power behind hit records, major motion pictures and popular video games the world over.” Waves has received a Technical Grammy® Award [and] is acclaimed by top professional and prosumer users worldwide.” Waves tech includes Room Emulation which creates a “…sense of space and reflection of the sound within a room.”

Integrated Head Tracking that enables the Mobius to “precisely track even the tiniest head movements 1,000 times a second and feeds the 3D emulation algorithm.”

Sound Localization technology adjusts “as the positioning of your head changes, Mobius identifies and maintains the source of the sound, changing dynamically as you move.”

I responded I’d be happy to try the Audeze Mobius, adding that since my son was an avid gamer and attending a technical film school perhaps I’d let him take them for a spin as well.… Read the full article

Audeze Arrivals

It was a big box, it was sitting in my front hallway when I opened the door and had Audeze markings on the side.

This excited me. This made me happy. It had been a long week and boxes of new gear always puts a smile on my face.

I had spoken briefly a while back with Audeze CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram about getting some fresh headphones sent to me for review and he replied that he’d send me a mix of ‘phones to try out.… Read the full article

Audeze LCD2 launch and Mobius rollout keeps CEO busy

By | July 19th, 2018|Categories: Innerfidelity|

Audeze’s main man and CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram is racking up the frequent-flyer miles of late.

A schedule that saw him overseeing the first shipments of the initial batch of $399 USD Mobius gaming/mixed-media platform headphones from Asia and the rollout of the newly-announced LCD2 planar-magnetic closed-back headphone at CanJam in London this weekend has had Thiagasamudram feeling a bit jet lagged.

Despite the gruelling pace, he managed to connect with me for a quick chat about the $899 USD LCD2, what sets it apart from the LCD-XC and what it means for Audeze.… Read the full article

Review: Audeze LCD-XC – a personal take

By | June 27th, 2018|Categories: Innerfidelity|

Audeze LCD-XC

*This is a review without NEW measurements as Keith Howard, based in the UK, will not have our new measurement rig formally ready for a few more weeks. That said the original measurements on the old rig can be found at: https://www.innerfidelity.com/images/AudezeLCDXC.pdf

Several of the people on the crowded bus stared at me. Like I was big bug or something.

Maybe it was because I was wearing the Audeze LCD-XC in Bubinga and they wanted to straight-up take them off my head and run.… Read the full article
