It missed it’s September release, but the Audeze’s Penrose gaming headset for PS5 is now ready to buy. The planar magnetic drivers drew a lot of a attention when it was first pushed way back in July. The planar magnetic driver technology promises a more natural sound, immersive sound stage and less distortion.

Two different versions are available for each of the next gen consoles, the PS5 version also working with the PS4, PC and Mac. The Xbox Series version of the headset is shipping in late December, maybe too late for some Christmas presents.
