New Wireless Stereo Headset for PlayStation 4

Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0Just as they announce the firmware required to use Sony wireless headsets, they also launch a new model.

Simply called the Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 (Gold Wireless Headset in the US), it will be compatible with PS4, PS4, PC and Mac using the wireless adapter. However, and usefully, it also includes a wired connection so that you can use it on your Vita, smartphone, etc.

As before, the headset offers 7.1 virtual surround as well as a noise-cancelling internal microphone. The headset is also foldable, for storage and transport, which is an added bonus.

Like the Pulse the microphone is built-in, unlike the original model where it was in a telescopic boom. I much prefer the latter as you speaking directly into the microphone. If it’s like the previous models the surround will only work on PS3 and PS4.

It will be available on the 10th February and will cost £79.99. I’ve yet to see anything about it that’s different from previous models, although that price does appear to be better, which might, indeed, be the killer feature. However, the press release doesn’t make mention of the Bass Impact technology that was present in the Pulse so I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s been dropped from the specification to keep the price lower.
