At CanJam Singapore 2023 on March 25-26, 2023, Audeze, a top audio technology brand and trailblazer in high-end gaming audio products, is set to launch their latest product, Maxwell. Maxwell is an ultra-low-latency wireless gaming headset that boasts a remarkable 80+ hours of battery life, making it a class-leading option for both PC and console gamers.
At the world’s premier headphone audio show hosted at Pan Pacific Singapore, Audeze Maxwell will be displayed alongside AFTERSHOCK PC, Singapore’s leading custom PC company, and Prism+, Singapore’s fastest-growing local consumer electronics brand.
Paired with a top-notch PC and monitor, gamers will experience impressive graphics and high-quality sound for a realistic gameplay at the event. Besides, Legion of Racers, the Singapore lifestyle and entertainment brand that combines the best in motorsport and the gaming world, will be setting up a race simulator at CanJam.
Audeze Maxwell will be featured alongside Legion of Racers to offer a truly immersive sim racing experience with unprecedented realism.
Maxwell is the latest release from Audeze in a line of purpose-built gaming headsets like the LCD-GX and Mobius which have garnered rave reviews for their innovations in audio performance and headtracking.
Two versions of Maxwell will be available: Maxwell for Xbox & PC is officially licensed by Microsoft and includes the first auto-activating Dolby Atmos license, while Maxwell for Playstation & PC supports Tempest 3D Audio.
Connect and game anywhere, without limitations
Maxwell provides ultra-low-latency, high-resolution audio up to 24-bit 96kHz when connected to the included USB dongle. Low-latency wireless range and stability are improved up to 3X from the award-winning Audeze Penrose headset.
Maxwell features many wired and wireless connection options including the latest Bluetooth 5.3 LE Audio technology, supporting the LC3 and LC3plus codecs. In addition, Maxwell supports classic Bluetooth codecs like SBC, AAC and LDAC for high-quality portable audio. Maxwell also supports lossless high-resolution audio up to 24-bit 96kHz over wired USB.
Crystal clear communication with lag-free A.I. powered noise filtration
Audeze brings its proprietary lag-free A.I. powered noise filtration to Maxwell for crystal-clear communication in any environment (this was pioneered with Audeze’s FILTER Speakerphone – one of Time Magazine’s Best Inventions of 2022).
The hardware based A.I. system automatically eliminates background noise at the touch of a button, with no additional software or setup required. Friends and teammates will never miss your banter and call-outs thanks to five built-in microphones and a detachable boom mic.
Studio-quality sound and lifelike, powerful dynamics
Powered by Audeze’s award winning 90mm planar magnetic drivers, with over 3 times more surface area than competitor’s drivers, Maxwell delivers a powerful bass and pinpoint precision enabling lightning-quick response for gamers.
Battle-ready durability & comfort
Maxwell’s all-new premium chassis, an over-ear and closed-back design, features a spring-steel headband for durability, with deluxe contoured earpads and an adjustable and replaceable suspension strap for greater comfort over long gaming sessions.
The earcups feature a reinforced dual-chamber design for class-leading passive noise isolation. It comes with an internal 1800 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery which provides up to 80 hours of wireless playback for prolonged gaming sessions, and only requires a quick charge of 20 minutes for an all-day play.
Customise communication and sound settings
Maxwell combines the best of both worlds for PCs and Consoles by adding support for features like Game-Chat mix, advanced gaming presets, user-customisable multi-band EQ, ability to enhance specific sound cues with presets for footsteps, ballistics, racing and role playing games (RPG)s, and save up to 4 user-defined EQ profiles. Maxwell also comes with Audeze HQ gaming app that gives users access to a wide range of customisable features.
