About this deal

We have also retested PlayStation Compatibility to add that you can receive full audio and mic support on PS4 via Non-BT Wireless. Sound quality, wireless performance, and battery life are all pushed to new extremes, along with the latest spatial audio features and multi-platform compatibility.

If you like to game with others, their boom mic ensures your voice sounds clear and accurate, even if you're talking in noisy environments. The integrated mic doesn't perform quite as well as the boom mic, especially with loud noise like a subway. I’m all for simpler designs that aim to eliminate sources of frustration, but this needs a trip back to the drawing board because of long-term durability concerns. Do note that while we try to accommodate all head shapes and sizes, there are some limits to the design of any headphone, and some touching of the headband might occur on larger adjustments and larger heads.

That’s right, this headset has an on-board beamforming microphone array for when you don’t need (or want) an external boom mic. While it’s true that most gaming headsets don’t come with carrying cases, I think higher-end headsets should.

The Audeze Maxwell Wireless are slightly better gaming headphones than the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Wireless. The AI noise suppression feature has two levels (high, low), and did a great job of filtering out consistent background noise, such as my 37 PC case fans, without thinning out or otherwise distorting my voice. Game/Chat balance is now the default action, meaning that you only have to adjust the lower wheel up and down to adjust the game/chat balance. It’s nice to see a gaming headset with both options, as attached boom mics do not look very cool when you’re not sitting in front of a PC or a TV.We've updated and renamed the following test groups: Wired Connection, Bluetooth Connection, and Wireless Connection (Dongle). You'll need to manually switch audio between devices for any connection that isn't simultaneous, as you can't play audio at the same time.

Bluetooth-heavy users will also appreciate the inclusion of Bluetooth multipoint support, which allows handoffs between devices as you bounce from source to source. This allows for more detailed control over the diaphragm, which means (in theory, at least) more accurate sound reproduction. This is inconvenient, because — as I mentioned earlier — the headset does need some tweaking if you’re planning on using it in a non-gaming capacity.

They have a detachable boom mic as well as an integrated mic, support LDAC codec for streaming Hi-Res audio, and you can pair them with two different devices in many ways. These headphones come with a 1/8" TRS cable, a USB-C to USB-C audio/charging cable, and a USB-A to USB-C adapter, also for audio and charging. While we originally measured somewhat high latency via wired USB, we launched an investigation into our latency measurements, and created headphones test bench 1. Under the hood, the Audeze Maxwell has everything necessary to satisfy the pickiest person out there.
