September 8, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


With Destiny arriving tomorrow, PlayStation has announced that an exclusive Destiny audio mode will be made available for free through the Headset Companion App for PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3, allowing you to have a custom-tuned audio mode for the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.

That won’t be the only headset from Sony, as the Silver Wired Stereo Headset will “join the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset as part of the official PlayStation headset lineup later this fall, providing gamers with a choice of headsets and let them hear PlayStation games the way they were meant to sound.” Priced at $69.99 (MSRP) in North America for the PS4 and PS3, here’s its feature list:

  • Immersive 7.1 virtual surround sound
  • Custom audio modes created by developers specifically for PlayStation games
  • Retractable boom mic for voice chat while playing online
  • Breathable ear cushions and a lightweight design for hours of gameplay
  • In-line volume and mic controls

As PlayStation points out, “the Silver headset can be connected to a PS Vita (or many mobile devices) with the 3.5mm jack, ensuring you can take them with you wherever you go.”

Additionally, if you want to pick up an “extremely limited” Glacier White Gold Wireless Stereo Headset, it will become available tomorrow for a short time while supplies last.

For even more accessory options, the DualShock 4 will be sold in Glacier White beginning tomorrow.
