The PlayStation Silver Wired Headset was first unveiled last month and features immersive 7.1 virtual surround sound together with a retractable boom microphone.
Other features of the new PlayStation headset include in-line volume and microphone controls as well as the already mentioned audio modes that enable developers to create audio specific soundtracks and effects for PlayStation games.
The latest PlayStation headset is compatible with PlayStation Vita and many mobile devices that are equipped with a 3.5 mm jack. Sony’s Anand Agarwal explains a little more.
“I’m also thrilled to announce that a Far Cry 4 custom audio mode is on the way for the Silver headset, as well as the Gold and PULSE Elite Wireless headsets via the free Headset Companion App. Additionally, custom audio modes for inFAMOUS Second Son, Watch Dogs, Destiny and The Last of Us are all on the way for the Silver headset.
Pick up the Silver Wired Stereo Headset and stay tuned for more information on developer-created custom audio modes coming to PlayStation headsets.”
