Audeze has announced that they are extending their Mobius Indiegogo Campaign until May 5th. As of this blog’s publishing time, there are still 43 left at the 32% discount. After that the price goes up $30. There are some great threads over on Head-Fi discussing the Mobius and I will link to those in another post this weekend. I am going to push this campaign a bit because maybe the only time you have an opportunity to own a planar magnetic headphone for under $300. Initial reviews are placing the sound characteristics of the Mobius of the Audeze Sine and some reviews place it in the ballpark of the LCD 2.

Jude posted a video review of the upcoming Audeze Mobius headphone on Head-Fi. While the Mobius is targeting gamers they appear to have the same, similar or in the ballpark planar magnetic core as the EL-8. However, according to the review it holds up against its peers when justing using it as a standard headphone. The Mobius has a usb-c connection with converting cables and a boom-mic included. It is also bluetooth and supports LDAC for all of the Sony fans out there. For the PC gamers it supports 7.1 surround with head tracking. Sounds like an interesting HP. Another interesting thing is that it is being sold pre-release on the Indiegogo platform. Apparently, to generate interest pre-release and to fund the manufacturing run-up costs. Slated for a June/July release the pre-release price is $269. That is 32% off the expected retail price of $399.

Malfunkt posted on Head-Fi an interesting comparison of the HD700, D2000, MDR-7520, LCD-2 R1 and UE6000s. To facilitate this comparison Malfunkt used various musical compositions across various genres. Interesting but not surprising results. Click the link below to see the results.
Dillan has posted a review of the LCD-4 on Head-Fi.
Pros: Instrument separation that can’t keep me separated • A sound signature that doesn’t know the definition of fatigue • Alluring voice reproduction
Cons: Some might find their weight a little heavy • Not exciting, extremely laid back • Slight confusion in the treble area • Price
Review of LCD-4
Trogdor posted a very detailed review of the LCD-4 on Head-Fi. Trogdor believes that the LCD-4 is “One of the best sounding headphones on the planet” and for $4,000 it darn well better be one of the best.
Pros: Unbelievable detail and tonal accuracy, the midrange is a bona fide controlled substance, accurate and extremely deep bass, luxurious craftmanship
Cons: Price, slightly recessed treble compared to the rest of its response
