Audeze Announces Their Latest Wireless Gaming Headset, Maxwell

Audeze announced their latest wireless gaming headset, Maxwell, which features a number of changes and improvements over Penrose.

One of the biggest changes is moving from a plastic body to a metal one. This should offer additional durability, helping Maxwell stand the test of multiple intense gaming sessions.

Another massive improvement is implementing Audeze proprietary lag-free A.I. powered noise filtration system. This is the same technology used in their speakerphone Filter, which earned Audeze a spot in Time Magazines Best Inventions of 2022. This potentially means the end of the dreaded fan capture, something that has remained something of a joke in the gaming community for well over a decade. This feature works with either the in-built microphone, or detachable boom mic, which was designed by Shure.

Along with these features, Maxwell boasts an impressive 80+ hours of battery life, with fast charge to make sure you can maximize your gaming session without having to plan ahead. Wireless support was also improved significantly, through a new low-latency wireless dongle that offers up to 3x the range Penrose did; plus support for Bluetooth 5.3, including support for LC3 and LC3plus codecs.
