Sony has revealed details of the next system software update for PlayStation 4 (version 1.60) which will be released tomorrow (4th February 2014) which will add compatibility for the PULSE Wireless Stereo Headset.
In addition, Sony has announced a new Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 which will be available from 10th February 2014 at £79.99/€89.99 SRP.
This new wireless headset for PS4 features 7.1 virtual surround sound, as well as a crystal clear, noise-cancelling internal microphone for chatting to friends on Party, when playing online multiplayer.
The headset can be used at home using the USB wireless adaptor with your PS4, PS3, PC or Mac for up to 8 hours thanks to its rechargeable battery. You can also use the headset on the go with your PS Vita or with other mobile devices using the included 3.5mm stereo mini jack. With its foldable design the headset is ideal for travel and storage, so when you’re not using it, simply fold your headset up.
What’s more, you’ll be able to access custom sound modes to enhance your gameplay, music and movie experience on PS4 and PS3 through the Headset Companion App, available soon from PlayStation Store at no extra cost (also available through an update patch to the PULSE Manager app on PS3).
Sound modes that are specifically tuned to enhance the audio in your favourite PS4 games will be released on a regular basis. The first sound mode that will be coming soon to the app is being developed by Sucker Punch for PS4 exclusive, inFAMOUS Second Son.
In addition, the app also offers a variety of preset audio modes for games, music and movies, as well as a tool to create your own custom EQ mode. The Headset Companion App will be compatible with Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 and the PULSE Wireless Stereo Headsets on both PS4 and PS3.
An update released to the PlayStation App for iOS and Android devices last week, added ‘Live from PlayStation‘ support (among other features), allowing you to browse and launch videos of live gameplay on your phone or tablet via USTREAM or Twitch.
