Sony announces new Gold Wireless Headset for PS4 and PS VR

The Gold Wireless Headset is no doubt one of the best gaming headsets you can buy on the market today. I have the older model and it has lasted me three years and still remains my go-to headset for all gaming needs. Its wireless features plus its 7.1 surround sound makes for the easiest and best way to experience PS4 games. The best part about them is the custom sound profiles that you can load onto it that tailors the sound levels specifically for various games. This helps create an even more immersive gaming experience. All this costs you R1499 in SA as that is what the headset sells for. 

While the old Gold Wireless Headset is cool it is a bit bulky, but Sony is changing all that with the brand new model. The new Gold Wireless Headset was announced yesterday and not only is it much sleeker but it still packs all the great features of the old model like its great surround sound, sound presets, and of course the great battery life. There are some new features coming to the new model like two noise cancellation hidden microphones that will help create clearer communication with friends in chat parties and games, it also boasts a brand new sleeker design with a much slimmer headband and smaller ear cups too. 


Sony says that the headset will retail for $99 which is around R1499 here if you take import costs into consideration, which is the same price as the older model. It will go on sale in the next few weeks. We are unsure if the headset will release in SA at the same time but chances are it probably will, given that PlayStation are masters at rolling out hardware across the world. Sony has already rolled out the update PS4 Headset Companion App which is the destination for loading sound presets onto the headsets, so things are moving pretty fast.


If you are in the market for a headset I can personally say that the Gold Wireless PS4 headset is a fantastic buy so this new model should be too. Let us know if you would buy one of these in the comments below.
