Sony announces new Stereo 2.0 Wireless Headphones for PS4
Version 1.60 of system software will bring support
2,119Sony has announced a new Wireless Stereo headset designed for the PS4.
The stereo system will become available from 10 February and will be priced at £79.99/€89.99.
There’s on-board 7.1 virtual surround sound processing and also a noise-cancelling internal microphone for chatting to friends on Party, when playing online multiplayer. The headset isn’t just restricted to the PS4, either, and using the USB wireless adaptor, can be harnessed with your PS3, PC or Mac.
On board is a rechargeable battery which Sony says lasts up to 8 hours and you can also use the headset on the go with your mobile devices using the included 3.5mm stereo mini jack. It’s a foldable design, too, meaning it should be nice and portable.
8 hours battery life and a companion app
Support for the stereo 2.0 headset will come with the latest system software update (version 1.60), which should be released tomorrow(4th February 2014).
Sony is also releasing a Headset Companion App which will be ‘available soon’ from the PlayStation Store. The app will allow you to access custom sound modes to enhance your gameplay, music and movie experience on PS4 and PS3.
The app will offer a variety of preset audio modes for games, music and movies, as well as a tool to create your own custom EQ mode.
The Headset Companion App will be compatible with Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 and the PULSE Wireless Stereo Headsets on both PS4 and PS3.
Who fancies a set of these then?
