Waves teams up with Audeze for Mobius3D headphones

Waves Audio has launched the new Mobius3D audio headphones in collaboration with manufacturer Audeze.

The new cans use Waves’ Nx technology, Audeze planar magnetic drivers, and are designed for music industry professionals, especially those working in VR and 360.

The Mobius3D headphones are also being slated as the first to “truly deliver on the promise of 3D audio”.

Other features include full 360-degree head tracking, the ability to communicate with the Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room and Waves B360 Ambisonics Encoder plugins, and immersive 3D headphone monitoring of any stereo or surround content.

“Audeze headphones have achieved worldwide acclaim among music industry professionals and audiophiles alike for their amazing sound and for innovation that has kept them on the cutting edge of technology,” said Gilad Keren, Waves CEO and co-founder.

“With Mobius, Audeze is offering its award-winning audiophile sound with integrated Waves Nx head tracking, sound localization, and virtual room emulation technology for a monumental game-changer within audio.”

Audeze CEO and co-founder Sankar Thiagasamudram added: “Audeze is delighted to be joining forces with Waves. Waves’ 360 Ambisonics Tools, which include the B360 Ambisonics Encoder and the Nx Virtual Mix Room plugins, all seamlessly interact with the Audeze’s Planar headphone for diverse uses, be they in gaming, 360/VR mixing or mixing in non-acoustic environments, and from surround monitoring to consumer-listening experience.”

The headphones will be available in a standalone package, as well as part of a “creators edition” that also includes the Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room and Waves B360 Ambisonics Encoder plugins.
