PlayStation 'Gold' headset sounds very appealing for gamers

Retailers Play Asia and Best Buy are listing up a new PlayStation Gold headset by Sony and it sounds very interesting.

The wireless headset, which has a hidden mic, is said to support 7.1 surround sound and apparently comes with app support which will allow developers to include enhanced sound within their games.

Here's a description from Play-Asia which explains the features:

A Headset for Gamers: Experience everything from the big booms to whisper-quiet warnings in stunning 7.1 virtual surround sound (7.1 Virtual Surround Sound and Audio Modes are only available on the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 systems and require system software versions 4.20/1.6 or later respectively) and chat with friends through the hidden noise cancelling microphone

Developed by PlayStation: With the Headset Companion App, download custom game modes created exclusively for PlayStation by developers that are specifically tuned to enhance the audio in your favorite games

Stylish Comfort: Slip into comfort you can enjoy for hours and a look you can take anywhere. Further customize your look can take anywhere. Further customize your look by swapping out the removable faceplates for something more your style

Adaptable Audio: Connect wirelessly to your PS4™, PS3™, and home computer, or connect to your PS Vita system or other mobile device with the included 3.5mm audio cable and take your sound with you

Compatible Hardware: Mobile Devices (Not all mobile devices are supported. Certain features may not work on some compatible mobile devices)

All retailers are out of stock, so we imagine Sony will be announcing this headset separately at some point. But at around $128 and with audio tailored specifically for games it certainly sounds like it'll appeal to a lot of people.

You are right Toots but you are forgetting that the UK/Europe always gets shafted on price

Indeed but surely not to the degree of $128 becoming £150. If you take the PS4 and Xbone as reference $399 = £349 and $499 = £429

similar price to beats audio headphones i would say , but 7.1 surround and works on most devices should be far more superior to beats, if so im happy to pay as wanting a monster set of headphones

$128 translate to €128 according to companies, which means £ most likely will be 100 or so.
