Watch the most popular YouTube reviews for the Audeze - Penrose
Writing this review after spending 1 week with Penrose and an initial burn-in of 40+ hours. When I first listened to this headphones, the sound for great but too much in-your-face. Had to EQ it but after burn-in, they're great. I also have DT-990s and will compare with them in sound section.
Unboxing- I got the Headphones, Detachable Mic, Wireless Dongle, USB A to USB C, USB C to USB C and 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. The build quality is great but the quality of 3.5mm cable is really cheap. The Headset feels strong and seems like will last a long time.
Sound- I tried Arctis Pro before and really wanted to buy them for my PS5, but since they were Out of Stock I went with Penrose. The first impression was mind-blowing!! The imaging and layering of these is unmatched. It loses a bit on the soundstage compared to Arctis but it wasn't too wide in those as well. You can literally hear footsteps in the middle of explosions, something the dynamic drivers of Arctis were having a hard time to produce. In the 990s, the open back has a clear advantage in terms of less fatigue and wider soundstage. But in terms of imaging and layering, there's no match for these Palanar Magnetics. The Planar Magnetic drivers also shine in music (both Bluetooth and Wireless), even though the Bluetooth only supports SBC+AAC, it sounded much better than most Bluetooth Headphones (sans ANC). The lows are tight AF, something you can feel inside and never overdone or boomy. Compared to DT-990, the base is slightly better in Penrose. The mids are clear but lacks some warmth compared to DT-990. The highs are not too bright but not ear-piercing like 990s either. With EQ adjusted, 990 has better highs than Penrose but surprisingly on gaming, Penrose gave better footsteps.
Mic- Out of the box, the mic quality was pretty lackluster. But after firmware update to 0.1.10, the mic is much much better. But nowhere near the "Broadcast Quality" they claim. There's zero noise cancellation on mic and the wind noises from your breathing will be very distracting for your teammates.
Comfort- The closed back nature coupled with pleather memory foam earpads mean that your ears will get really hot in summers. It's not a big problem if you turn on the AC but just wanted to set the expectations. The earcups form a vaccum like seal to give better bass response but there's one thing you should keep in mind. The Planar Magnetic drivers are delicate to heavy external pressure changes, so it's advisable to not press the earcups against your ears/head. The vacuum may damage the diaphragm and Audeze also mentions that as a warning on their site. I'm going to change my earcups to custom gel-filled ones for comfort but that will change the sound signature for sure.
EQ- No need to severely EQ these and Audeze also provides some presets on their site which you can load using the Audeze HQ software on PC by connecting via USB cable. You can also use Android app for changing EQ presets or updating firmware. After 0.1.10 update, you can also cycle through the EQs stored by directly pressing and holding Headphones volume wheel for 3 seconds. You can also toggle side tone by long pressing mic volume wheel and also change Bluetooth-Wireless mix by clicking and then turning the mic volume wheel.
Extra Features- I really love the fact that Penrose can simultaneously connect via Bluetooth and Wireless so now I can play online games on PS5 and connect with my PC teammates using Discord on my phone. The Aux quality is okayish and these shouldn't be connected to a high powered amp cuz these are active headphones. Other than that, the sound on Bluetooth or Wireless is amazing for music.
Verdict- I'm not kidding when I say these are the best Wireless Gaming Headsets on the market. Unlike other users, I never faced any connection drop. There's a really faint noise floor while connected to Bluetooth but it's not noticeable during playback. If you have a PS5 and have 28K to spend on Wireless headphones, you can't go wrong with these. The ability to play audiophile level sound for music being connected to a PC wirelessly is another bonus. Given its niche target audience, Audeze Penrose are quite easily recommended.
Hey Vibhor, that's a great review! Thank you so much for taking time and sharing this amazing and detailed feedback. This will surely help others while considering this product for their next purchase!
Audio Quality: The best in closed back.
The most important feature: dual audio from both wireless and Bluetooth.
Getting anywhere from 11 to 13 hours of battery life depending on volume.
Using it with both my PC and PS5.
The range is good as long as there isn't a 1-foot brick wall in between.
Hey Aakash, We're happy to hear that you're loving the sound quality of this headphones. Thanks for sharing this amazing feedback with everyone!
I bought these as replacement to my old Steelseries Arctis 7, while it was good for gaming it lacked the bass for enjoying music so the Audeze Penrose was able to bridge that gap. Fact that it is compatible with all of my devices made it the perfect choice. Wireless mode for low latency performance with PC / PS5 while Bluetooth mode allows me to seamlessly connect to my phone with the press of a button. Mic quality was decent (tested in multiplayer games as well as Zoom & Google Meet). I did feel clamp force was a bit much in the beginning but I found slightly stretching / bending the head band the other way helped ease the pressure. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Hey Ashutosh, Its amazing to hear that you are loving the new headphones! Thanks for sharing this amazing feedback with us.

Hey Berkmans, we're sad to see this rating from you. Please feel free to let us know what went wrong with your purchase and we will try and make your experience any better!
These headsets have brilliant sound signature. It's my first time trying out Audeze Penrose and they have been an incredible experience.
It's great for both music and gaming. Easy to set up. Only con would be no iOS app and have to always connect via USB cable to PC to access the EQ. Other than that these headphones have been great so far.
Hey Rohit, we are so happy to hear that you are loving your new headphones. Thanks for sharing this awesome feedback!
Being an audiophile and professional, I have every top end end headphones from Audeze, Astell n Kern, and several other companies. No matter what someone says on web to question price of Penrose X, I just want to clarify there is no wireless headset in the market that have 100mm planar magnetic drivers, that feature was restricted to audiophile headphones, that cost far more. So, it is a previlige for gamers, that Audeze created headset for consoles at reasonable cost. If you know sound, appreciate the clarity of planar headsets, then it is a no brainer to get Penrose. For those who are casual gamers I would say you can go wrong if you opt of fancy headsets that are more focused on RGB, colorful designs, and marketing to sell you dynamic driver headsets, then I suggest the experience you will get will not be the best sound, and if you want to buy best headset for gaming there is no competition to Audeze Penrose. Audeze focus on sound, build quality, and comfort.
Hi Navneet, we really appreciate the time you took to write such a detailed review! This will surely help the other customers while making a purchase. Happy listening!
