The Penrose (and Penrose X) is Audeze's first entry into wireless audio for games consoles. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Its sound has to be heard to be believed - this is extremely high-quality stuff. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Part of that is down to its use of planar magnetic drivers, compared to typical audio drivers they're extra responsive and detailed. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This dongle lets you easily connect to your PC or console - the latter is designed for PS or Xbox, with respective blue/green colour accents to the design. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It's not all perfect, though. While it looks fine and sounds great, there are definitely more comfortable headsets out there. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Similarly, we got around 10 hours of battery life, which is less than the quoted 15 hours. Still, the 3D audio immersion for those 10 hours is something else. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
If you're most concerned with sound quality above all else, this is a great option for console gaming. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
