If you are an Xbox user who has a thing for gadgets with eye-catching colorways, then you will not want to miss out on this limited edition gaming headphones from Audeze designed in collaboration with Microsoft for its Designed for Xbox Summer product collection.
The headset, which is based on the audiophile headphone maker’s highly lauded Maxwell gaming headset, features a new color-shifting “Ultraviolet” finish and hence the name Audeze Maxwell Ultraviolet Edition Wireless Gaming Headset.
The striking color was painstakingly applied to the ear cups and the headband using an electroplating process to result in a one-of-a-kind look.
Beyond the head-turning aesthetic, the Audeze Maxwell Ultraviolet Edition Wireless Gaming Headset is pretty much the Maxwell gaming cans you may have already known.
This means it boasts features like massive 90 mm (!) planar drivers whose audio reproduction is bolstered by Bluetooth 5.3 with LE Audio (and supports LC3plus and LDAC), class-leading High-Res Audio up to 24-bit/96kHz, and Dolby Atmos.
Other notables include FILTER A.I. noise-reducing microphone technology, 80+ hours of battery life with Fast Charge for all-day play in 20 minutes, and an all-new reinforced chassis built with aluminum and steel.
It is indeed an impressive pair of gaming cans in look and in specs, but such awesomeness does not come cheap. The Audeze Maxwell Ultraviolet Edition Wireless Gaming Headset is available for pre-order today for US$329. It will be officially launched on August 13, 2023.
