Now, we just wait for the official PS5 plate accessories
The Pulse 3D Audio wireless headset that Sony made to take advantage of the PS5’s 3D audio technology is getting a new color option. It will be available in midnight black in addition to white, like its DualSense controller, for the same $99.99 price it debuted last year. Most of the white headset colorway was already black, but now it has more, covering the headband in black detail. You can preorder it through Sony’s site now, and it will be available on October 22, 2021, but more retailers may stock it as well.
in the playstation blogSony says this announcement coincides with a new PS5 update that gives Pulse 3D Audio headset owners some new settings to customize the sound. You’ll have three audio presets (Shooter, Bass Boost, Standard), some of which include the option to create your own. EQ settings can be accessed through the Control Center menu that pops up when you press the PS button on the controller.
More colorways are always better, but this news begs me to ask out loud whether Sony’s next step is to make an official replacement plate for the PS5. Dedicated gamers who buy the Midnight Black DualSense and Pulse 3D Audio headsets will want their PS5’s stark white color to match the plate. There are solutions out there, like third-party plates and stickers from Dbrand, but this seems like a clear opportunity that Sony hasn’t jumped in yet. If it concerns the difficulty of replacing them, it shouldn’t. After all, if Sony can trust its users to go through such a simple process of setting up their own M.2 SSD, swapping plates should be a relative breeze, right?
