The best connection type for Penrose is via the 2.4gHz wireless adapter, which is a high-bandwidth, fully lossless, 16bit/48kHz connection with extremely low latency of about 16ms.
To connect using 2.4gHz Wireless:
- The Penrose X USB adapter has a two-position slider switch on one side. Slide the switch to the XBOX position for Xbox use, and to the PC position for other sources. (The PS version of Penrose does not have this switch.)
- Insert the included USB-A dongle fully into the proper port of your console or PC. For best results, we recommend direct connection to the USB port closest to the motherboard, and we do not recommend the use of any USB hubs.
- Turn Penrose on by pressing the Power Button for about three seconds.
- If Penrose is in Aux or BT mode, click the Multi-Function Button until you hear the voice say “wireless.” Wireless is the default mode for Penrose, so you should not need to do this unless the source has been switched.
- The friendly voice in Penrose should say “connected” once connection is made. Your source device may need a few seconds to get Penrose ready. Once that’s done, you can blast off and beat the record on the Kessel Run!
- Headphone volume adjustment is done by spinning the Headphone Volume Control wheel on the left earcup. Software based volume controls such as those in Windows or Mac OS will have no effect when connected over the 2.4gHz wireless adapter, since the computer has no direct connection to the headphones and only sees the dongle.
- Mic volume is adjusted by spinning the Mic Volume Control wheel.
2.4GHz Wireless pairing
- Penrose should pair automatically after a few seconds. The below procedure is for use in rare cases, such as pairing a replacement dongle.
- With Penrose powered on, long-press the Multi-Function Button while in 2.4 GHz wireless mode and you should hear the “pairing” voice prompt, which should be followed shortly by “connected.”
- In case the above doesn’t work, unplug the USB dongle from your source device (also make sure to check the Xbox/PC switch if it's a Penrose X dongle). Then re-insert, making sure the USB dongle is fully inserted and its LED is blinking. Repeat the step above.
- If that fails to work, insert a paperclip end into the small hole on the side of the dongle for a few seconds until the LED starts to blink faster. Repeat the steps above.
