Audeze, one of the more premium audio manufacturers on the market, has unveiled the Penrose, a next generation wireless gaming headset.
Revealed to the world earlier this week, the Penrose looks like it is a pitch to meet the market demand for the audio requirements of the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X platforms. This brand new headset features Audeze’s award winning planar magnetic driver tech with 100mm drivers packed into the ears to reproduce as close to source as possible on both these platforms.
A broadcast quality microphone also comes in the package. The flexible boom mic construction of the Penrose is engineered to bring high quality voice chat into games and a built in noise filter should reduce up to 20dB of background sound so you can still chatter in the front room. This is all tied together into a slick looking shell that comes equipped with wire free, low latency 2.4 GHz lossless wireless connection. The Penrose isn’t just a dedicated console gamer, however. A Bluetooth 5.0 (SBC and AAC), as well as the 2.4Ghz compatibility with PC platforms, means that the Penrose has use outside of your latest battle royale.
Gamers who grab the Penrose on its release should find an experience that lives up to the hype surrounding the audio processing power of the new wave of gaming platforms, and at $299 we would certainly expect that. The Penrose retails at an RRP of $300 but gamers who want to jump in early can pick it up as a pre-order for the limited promotional price of $249 ($50 off MSRP). Pre-order details can be found on the Audeze website. The first 1000pre orders of the Penrose (for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation 5 consoles, and Windows and Mac desktops) and Penrose X (for Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles, and Windows desktops) can grab the discount before this fancy looking new Audeze Penrose wireless headset starts shipping internationally in September 2020.
