Pulse Explore Wireless Earbuds:
Pulse Explore is the first PlayStation set of wireless earbuds, providing a premium portable audio experience with dual microphones and AI-enhanced noise rejection capable of filtering background sounds. It also offers lossless audio and comes with a charging case.
Pulse Explore will be available for 199.99 USD | 219.99 EURO | 199.99 GBP | 29,980 YEN. Launch dates, pre-orders, and additional details will be shared soon.
Pulse Elite Wireless Headset:
Pulse Elite is Sony’s new wireless headset that offers lossless audio and comes with a retractable boom mic and AI-enhanced noise rejection capable of filtering background sounds. A charging hanger is also included with the product for a convenient charging and storage option.
Pulse Elite will be available for 149.99 USD | 149.99 EURO | 129.99 GBP | 18,980 YEN with additional information to be revealed at a later date.
PlayStation Link Wireless Technology:
Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore can connect directly with PlayStation Portal by leveraging the new wireless audio technology, PlayStation Link. Link delivers low latency, lossless audio and easy switching between multiple hosts such as PS5 with the USB adapter and PlayStation Portal.
The PlayStation Link USB adapter will also be sold separately as a standalone item, and can be used on PC and Mac. Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore can simultaneously connect to a Link-supported device (PS5, PC, Mac, or PlayStation Portal) or a Bluetooth-supported device.
For instance, Pulse Explore can be connected to PS5 (via the USB adapter) using PlayStation Link and also to a mobile phone through Bluetooth at the same time. While playing on PS5, gamers can instantly answer a call on their mobile, and talk on their phones while hearing game audio.
