Audeze Mobius headphones blew Gaz away at Superbooth with their built in Waves NX ambisonics spatial processing (when using the mix plug-in) that make you feel like you are listening to point source speakers - you move your head and the stereo imaging moves too. But not only that, they also feature Sony LDAC hi resolution bluetooth codec - where the bit depth is reduced as the audio spectrum is out of human hearing allowing for a much higher perceived audio quality
