PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset Review From A To Z 2023

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset has a strong case for being the headset that everyone uses with their PS5. It has good stereo sound, is simple to set up, and has a good microphone. It also lets you try out Sony’s Tempest 3D AudioTech. The quality of the plastic is a little off-putting, and the 12-hour battery life runs out quickly, but other than that, this is a good accessory that does a lot for $99/£89.99/AU$159.
The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset is the latest in a long line of gaming headsets. Sony hasn’t changed the fact that every new PlayStation console comes with a new PlayStation headset yet.

The first Sony gaming headset, the Wireless Stereo Headset, came out on the PS3. Then, on the PS4, the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset came out, and on the PS5, the Sony PlayStation Pulse 3D Wireless Headset came out. The new PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset sounds great, just like its predecessors. It has stereo and surround sound with a lot of detail, just like its predecessors. But the fact that it supports 3D Tempest AudioTech and has other new features makes it probably the best PS5 headset you can get.

It’s at least one of the best PS5 headsets on the market right now. The headset is different from regular wired headphones because it has features like monitoring the mic and setting different levels for chat and game audio. The mic quality is also pretty good, all things considered.

1. Wireless Pulse 3D Headset

The official release date for the white Sony PlayStation Pulse 3D Wireless Headset was October 30, 2020. It came out almost two weeks before the PS5 came out on November 12, and in October 2021, a Midnight Black version came out. They work with both the PS5 and the PS4, and they are a step up from the Sony Platinum Wireless Headset for the PS4, which came out in 2017.

The price of the Sony Pulse 3D Headset is $99, £89.99, or AU$159. This may seem expensive compared to the prices of other third-party headsets, but it’s not too bad when you think about everything the Pulse 3D has to offer.

Also, if you’re looking for other options, you could check out the Turtle Beach Recon 200, which works with the PS5 and costs only $49.99 / £29.99 / AU$77.99. However, the sound quality and overall set of features will be lower with this headset. For now, the PlayStation Pulse seems to be the best PS5 headset in terms of how well it works for the price.

2. Price and release date

The original Sony Wireless Headphones looked great with the big, jet-black PS3. The new Pulse 3D Headset, with its two-tone black and white color scheme, looks great with the PS5. It’s also stylish, with a top strap that can be adjusted to fit your head just right. It looks like a good mix of old and new, without going too far in either direction.

The Pulse 3D weighs 295 grams, which is about average for a pair of headphones that go over the ears. The headphones have medium-sized 40mm drivers inside the cans, and the clamping force, or how much pressure the cups put on your head, is just enough to keep them from falling off.

Like before, Sony chose to make the earcups out of leatherette, which feels soft and smooth, and the bridge out of plastic, which feels just a little bit flimsy. Sure, making them out of silk and metal would have made them more comfortable and durable, but the leather stays cool and comfortable even after long periods of use, and the plastic, while not ideal, keeps the price of the headset low.

The controls are on the outside of the left earcup. There is a rocker for game and chat audio that lets you turn up either one separately. There is also a toggle for the microphone monitor so you can hear yourself. There is also a volume rocker, a mute button, and the power switch. There is also a USB-C port for charging and a 3.5mm jack that can connect to any 3.5mm device with the cable that comes with it.

Because the headset has a 3.5mm jack, you can use it without the included dongle and still hear 3D Tempest AudioTech. However, the controller’s battery will drain faster if you do this. So, if you want to use headphones with the PS5, it’s probably best to make sure the dongle is plugged in and connected instead of using the audio cable to connect the headphones to the controller.

3. Performance

Plug the included dongle into one of the PS5’s USB ports and turn on the headset. The console will automatically connect to the headset and send all sound to it instead of the TV speakers. If you want to use the dongle on a PC, you can plug it into a USB port, but you won’t get surround sound that way.

Once everything is hooked up, the Pulse 3D Wireless sounds pretty good, with good stereo sound and simulated surround sound. Songs on Spotify didn’t have as much detail or clarity as they did on other traditional headphones, and games like Fall Guys or Genshin Impact didn’t benefit much from the headphones, but overall, the stereo and simulated surround experience was good, if not quite impressive.

The main reason you’ll want to buy the Pulse 3D Wireless is that it works with Sony’s new Tempest 3D AudioTech, which is being used in all of its first-party games to make the sound more realistic and immersive. With Spider-Man: Miles Morales, using the Pulse 3D meant hearing more realistic city sounds, while in Sackboy: A Big Adventure, every sound effect had a clear direction.

All View

The Pulse 3D Wireless headset is the standard PS5 headset, so it should be one of the first things you buy for your new console. It makes the experience better and lets you talk to your friends.
The Pulse 3D Wireless isn’t the most immersive headset we’ve ever used, but it does a good job of showing sound depth, especially after you adjust the height of the sound. It’s not as good as Dolby Atmos, but it’s a good alternative. Some wireless headsets are so hard to set up that it’s not even funny. The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset is easy to set up, which is great. It works right away when you plug it in, and we never had any problems with it dropping out or not being able to connect.
