PlayStation Pulse Elite Headset Affords Some Critical Bang For Your Buck


The PlayStation Pulse Elite doesn’t seem like any headset I’ve ever owned earlier than, and I’ve owned tons. The $150 wi-fi headset has a ‘60s-esque “imaginative and prescient of the longer term” vibe that stands out from a sea of black-and-neon designs and blinking LEDs. Its architectural form and modern simplicity means it’s even visually distinct from different Sony peripherals just like the PS5 Pulse 3D.

As a aggressive multiplayer gamer, I’m beholden to the standard of the headset on my head—can I hear the footsteps of an enemy Tracer dashing round behind me in a aggressive Overwatch 2 match? Can my teammates hear my callouts clearly with out my microphone selecting up the sound of my cat scratching on the cupboard the place I retailer his meals?
