Audeze presents the new Maxwell gaming headset for consoles and PC
Audeze announces its Gaming headset for consoles and PC Maxwell with ultra-low latency technology for competitive gamers.
With Hi-Res Audio up to 24-bit 96kHz, Bluetooth 5.3, and lossless audio over USB (not typical for wireless gaming headsets), Audeze Maxwell is a great choice for your setup.
Many ultra-low latency headphones that are wireless claim true lossless audio, but few actually deliver on the promise. Well, Audeze is stepping up and doing just that. While the headset itself uses quite a few connectivity options, including Bluetooth 5.3 with SBC, AAC, and LDAC codecs, the Maxwell also supports hi-res lossless audio up to 24-bit, 96kHz over wired USB. So if you need to cut the cord when gaming, but want to enjoy music in downtime, then the Audeze Maxwell is a solid choice all around.
It’s also the first Dolby Atmos license to auto-activate with Xbox and PC, and those on PlayStation and PC will also receive support for Tempest 3D audio. The Maxwell uses Audeze’s latest 90mm planar magnetic drivers which are made in California and “have 3 times the surface area of competitive drivers.” On top of that, you can use features like game chat blending, game presets, a custom multi-band equalizer, and more through the Audeze HQ gaming app.
The Audeze Maxwell also features an AI powered noise filtering system to deliver “clear communication in any environment”. The hardware-based AI system will automatically remove background noise at the touch of a button, and in fact, it was built in collaboration with Shure, one of the biggest names in microphone audio.
All of these features combine to deliver a studio-quality experience in your gaming setup. However, that doesn’t come without a cost. Audeze Maxwell will set you back $299. Sure, $300 isn’t astronomical when it comes to wireless gaming headsets, especially when it comes to 80 hours of battery life and true Hi-Res Audio. But it’s also not the cheapest pair on the market, so it’s something worth considering.
