PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset Redesign is Coming to Shelves Soon


Sony is at the forefront of the headphone industry, and yet, their official PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset has always felt a bit on the cheap side. Granted, you can only expect so much from a $100 pair of headphones, but still, Sony is certainly capable of better.

Thankfully, the Gold Wireless Headset is getting a much-needed upgrade. This new headset boasts a more modern design, and a few other added features. Get the full rundown from Sony, below.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection PC Release Date Moved to December per SteamDB [UPDATED]

“We’re happy to announce that a new Gold Wireless Headset, which will deliver enhanced comfort and performance for PS4 players! The new headset maintains everything you loved about the original, while featuring a new sleek design with refined over-ear cushions that make it even more comfortable for long gaming sessions.

The high fidelity 7.1 virtual surround sound intensifies the audio experience within compatible games and the improved augmented noise-cancelling hidden microphones provide crisp, clear communication with your friends and teammates. With the included 3.5mm audio cable, the Gold Headset is compatible with PlayStation VR and mobile devices. The new design makes the Gold Headset extra comfortable to wear with PS VR.”

Still a relatively basic design, but undoubtedly a major improvement over the original Gold Wireless Headset, which looked like no-name hardware you’d buy at Best Buy for $50. The new version of the headset will keep the $100 price point, which is a pretty solid deal for wireless noise-cancelling headphones from a major brand name. Sony hasn’t given a specific release date for the revamped headphones, but promise they’ll hit shelves “in the next few weeks”.

Anybody planning to pick up the redesigned Gold Wireless Headset? I already own a fancier pair of headphones, but if I was looking for a budget-friendly replacement, I’d certainly consider the new Gold Wireless Headset. That wouldn't have been the case with the old model.
