Sony has been working on new PlayStation-branded headphones and earbuds under the Pulse monicker. While the company had given a sneak peek into its upcoming gaming-oriented audio products before, we finally have a release date for them. 

Sony has now officially announced a release date for the Pulse Elite headset and Pulse Explore earbuds. While the wireless earbuds are coming in a month on December 6th, 2023, the wireless headset is coming a bit later on February 21st, 2024. 

Sony is offering lossless low-latency audio using a dongle

We already have multiple headsets from Sony’s gaming gear brand, INZONE, and the company even launched new INZONE earbuds just a month ago priced at $200

With this new gaming audio gear, it offers lossless and low-latency audio with the help of the PlayStation Link USB adapter that plugs into your PS5, PC, or Mac.

However, we don’t know for sure if you will need the dongle with the slimmer disc-less PlayStation 5 Slim coming this fall or if it will come with built-in technology like the PlayStation Portal

Although, Sony plans to sell the PlayStation Link USB adapter as a standalone device, priced at $24.99.

According to Sony, in addition to the 3D audio, the Pulse Explore earbuds and Pulse Elite headset will enable “seamless switching” between compatible devices, enabling users to take calls and enjoy music while gaming.

Overall, it looks like the Japanese company is ready to enhance its already excellent gaming audio portfolio with the new Pulse Explore and Pulse Elite.

And in addition to the new PlayStation 5 Slim launch, the company will be pretty busy for the next couple of months. 

Pulse Explore and Pulse Elite pricing and availability 

In terms of pricing and availability, both Pulse Explore and Pulse Elite will be available for pre-orders starting November 9 in the United States, UK, France, Germany, and other European countries. 

You can only pre-order the audio gear through the PlayStation Direct site and select retailers.
