Midnight Black Pulse 3D Wireless Headset announced for PS5

Back in June, PlayStation introduced galaxy-themed colours for DualSense wireless controllers. Keeping with the trend, today, PlayStation announced that the Pulse 3D headset is also getting a new colour, Midnight Black. 

This new look for the Pulse 3D headset will match the same colour scheme as the DualSense Midnight Black wireless controller with two subtly different shades of black. The Pulse 3D headset in Midnight Black will begin rolling out globally at participating retailers next month. I can confirm that the headset will be available in Canada in late October with an MSRP of $129.99 CDN

Experience superb 3D audio with the Pulse 3D wireless headset

While all PS5-compatible headsets can be used to experience 3D Audio with PS5 games, the Pulse 3D headset is specifically designed to take full advantage of the console’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, with a fine-tuned frequency response to help players more precisely place sounds in exact locations to match on-screen gameplay.

In the second major system update for PS5, which released today, there is a new equalizer control feature for Pulse 3D headset within PS5’s sound settings. Pulse 3D headset users can select from three presets — Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter which is designed to place extra emphasis on the sounds of footsteps and fired shots. 

Users can also create their own presets and save up to three settings to have more quick-access options. Additionally, players can adjust these equalizer settings during gameplay through Control Center, without needing to exit the game.
