  • During the PlayStation 5 Showcase Event, Sony has displayed a series of accessories for its upcoming console.
  • Called “Pulse 3D Wireless Headset,” the new item is designed for 3D audio from the ground-up.
  • PlayStation 5 comes with a dedicated audio engine, designed to evolve 3D audio in a massive way.

The hottest topic on the Web right now is related to Sony’s latest announcements. We’re talking about the highly anticipated PlayStation 5 console, scheduled to launch later this year. The new PlayStation will come with a highly attractive design, with uniform aesthetics spanning across the console case and the various accessories. Speaking of accessories, the PS5 will come with a “DualSense” controller, as well as a whole slate of uniquely designed gaming equipment. And yes, there’s going to be a new headset – called “Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.”

What’s New About the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset? Is This the Only Compatible PS5 Headset Right Now?

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset is designed to take full advantage of unique audio technologies built into the PlayStation 5. As you can see from the official press images supplied by Sony, this is a futuristic-looking device. However, long-term PlayStation users will immediately realize that the Pulse 3D headset is an improved version of Sony’s existing headsets for the previous PS generation.

Even though not much is known about it, Sony says that the Pulse 3D headset is designed to “offer 3D audio support and dual noise-canceling microphones.” This is where we come to one of the flagship features that the PS5 will offer: 3D audio.

Also, let’s not forget to mention that the Pulse 3D is currently the only official product of its kind made by Sony for the upcoming console. We’re sure that third-party manufacturers will soon offer a personal take of this headset, so there’ll be plenty to talk about over the forthcoming months.

What’s to Know About PS5’s 3D Audio? What’s Powering This New Audio Technology?

Sony has developed a hardware chip that processes 3D audio on the upcoming PlayStation 5 console. Thanks to the so-called Tempest Engine, PS5 owners will get to enjoy 3D audio, which is somewhat similar to what the current PlayStation VR technology offers. Needless to say, the PS5 will develop this technology even further, bringing it to a wide variety of games.

In case you didn’t know, 3D audio is designed to bring three-dimensional soundscapes, meaning that as you play a game, you will get a sense of space based on your game’s input. As you can imagine, you also need to have a compatible set of headphones to experience this technology accurately. This is why Sony has decided to produce its branded headset, as the best way to truly showcase the power of 3D audio.

Once the PS5 launches, we can expect more headsets like the Pulse 3D to appear. And as per Sony’s statements, this technology will also be available for any existing device, like your TV’s speakers and soundbars. However, keep in mind that the best way to experience PS5’s 3D audio will always be through headphones.
