New PlayStation Headsets Detailed, Compatible with Destiny Audio Mode

Gold Headset in Glacier White

This holiday season is right around the corner, which means a whole slate of amazing PS4 games are set to launch in the next few months, including Destiny (Tomorrow!), Driveclub, NBA 2K15, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4, and LittleBigPlanet 3. That means you’re probably going to be spending a lot of time with your PS4, right? This fall we’ve got a great lineup of new headsets and DualShock 4 colors to give you exactly what you need while you’re gaming.

I personally can’t wait to play Destiny on the brand new Glacier White PS4. This new color is available exclusively as part of the Destiny PlayStation 4 Bundle which hits stores tomorrow, September 9th. Starting tomorrow, you’ll also be able to get the Glacier White DualShock 4 and the extremely limited edition Glacier White version of the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset, which will only be available for a short time while supplies last.

We also have an exclusive Destiny audio mode that will be available via the free Headset Companion App for PS4 and PS3 starting tomorrow. Enjoy the sounds of the Destiny universe the way Bungie intended with this custom-tuned audio mode for the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.

I’m also excited to introduce the newest member of our headset lineup — the Silver Wired Stereo Headset for PS4 and PS3. This headset is packed with features — all for just $69.99 (MSRP).

Silver Headset

silverheadset
  • 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 with all PlayStation headsets, 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.

The Silver 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.

Need some more controllers to take on your friends? Pick up an additional DualShock 4 wireless controller in Wave Blue or Urban Camouflage (available now), or get one in Glacier White starting tomorrow. Make sure you call dibs on your favorite when your friends come over.

DualShock 4, Glacier White

Stay tuned for more information on the Silver Wired Stereo Headset, and let us know which peripherals you’re most looking forward to snagging this fall.

  • Sooooo no update for the Pulse Elites? Awesome…..-_-

    You guys have Gold, now Silver. I am NOT buying either of those when logic is telling me that “Platinum” will be right around the corner….and it will essentially be the upgrade to the Pulse Elites.

    ……I would think you guys would at the very least update those so they could get the Destiny sound mode…..I mean come on….

    • We’re working on bringing the Destiny audio mode to PULSE – Elite headsets. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to download via the Headset Companion app

  • When will the Destiny audio mode be released on the elite headphones?

    • We’re working on bringing the Destiny audio mode to PULSE – Elite headsets. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to download via the Headset Companion app

  • So I went in the companion app and I see the Destiny Mode is not available for the Pulse Elite. Any plans to add it for the Elite any time soon?

    • We’re working on bringing the Destiny audio mode to PULSE – Elite headsets. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to download via the Headset Companion app

  • Why is it that the Destiny Sound Mode is only compatible with the Gold Headset, instead of the Pulse Elite Headset?

  • Other people have asked, but I would also like to know if this is going to come out for the Pulse Elite. I bought my Pulse Elites with my PS4 because they were the best ones available and support was promised for them soon. I REALLY hope my headphones (that were more expensive than any other offering) aren’t being abandoned….

  • Where is the Destiny setting for the Pulse Headphones???

  • Can anyone confirm the destiny audio profile for Pulse on ps4?

  • The new SILVER headset?! Tell me that’s a joke? I mean, it’s clearly black. The PS3 and PS4 generally come in black so why would you then try to make a silver headset that doesn’t match?!

  • We are STILL waiting for the Destiny profile to be available for the Pulse.

    Come on Sony. The microcode is the same. Show your customers some respect.

    • We’re working on bringing the Destiny audio mode to PULSE – Elite headsets. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to download via the Headset Companion app

  • Add me to the list of people waiting for the Destiny settings for the Pulse Elite. Come on guys.

  • Where’s the love for the Pulse Elite!!?? Very disappointing to say the least. This is the only thing keeping my Destiny experience from being complete. They’re the best headphones Sony has for the PS4 and they can’t release the mode for the headset. Show some love and respect for the tons of people who own a pair. The least you can do is give us some sort of update on the situation. I’ve been monitoring this situation since Monday and not one persons comment on the subject has been replied to. This makes me worried. What a major bummer….

  • No support for the Pulse Elite is a major buzzkill…

    • We’re working on bringing the Destiny audio mode to PULSE – Elite headsets. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to download via the Headset Companion app

  • ooh, i’m interested in those new ps4 headphones. i wanted to get the PS4 gold headset, but they’re $100. i’ll have to compare the two later.

  • @59 the older PS3 Stereo headset does not support custom profile sounds. So the Destiny profile won’t work. You need a Pulse or a Gold or the new wired Silver headset to take advantage of custom profile audio.

  • Still no Destiny Audio sound profile for Gold Elites
    What gives Sony,you not supporting it know to push your other hardware..

    • We’re working on bringing the Destiny audio mode to PULSE – Elite headsets. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to download via the Headset Companion app

  • Hope GTA 5 gets an audio mode

  • When is the destiny audio mode going to be available for the pulse elite headset?

  • When will I be able to buy these bad boys in the uk?

  • So it’s been a good week and a few fays after release. Love your products but show love to the Pulse ELITES please. I’d really love to hear that mode in my ELITES.

    Thanks SONY for the great products.

  • @Anand

    I appreciate the feedback, but two weeks and a half later most players have already reached the endgame and moved on.

  • Hello mate. Can you tell me when the Silver Wired Stereo Headset for PS4 it’s out to buy in the UK. Thank you

  • Will The glacier white 7.1 headphones be released in the UK? If so, when?

    Thanks

  • Will the wireless headset be getting an EU release? Seocifically the UK. Been waiting to see if I can find it anywhere but not having much luck. It’d match the white controllers/console very well though!

  • Guys please, please, please can anyone answer When or even Will these be available to buy in Europe? Thank You!
