According to Sony, via the PlayStation Blog, the Gold Wireless Headset has received a revamp, and it’s coming to stores later this month for $99.99. The new model has been completely redesigned, with new over-ear cushions and a sleeker look overall. Sony says it will perform just as well as the original Gold Wireless Headset, delivering “enhanced comfort and performance,” with 7.1 virtual surround sound, a 3.5 mm audio cable, a wireless adapter, and noise-canceling hidden microphones. In addition, there is also a Type-A to micro-B USB cable available.

Here’s what Sony had to say about the redesigned headset on the PlayStation Blog,“The headset maintains everything you loved, while featuring a new sleek design with refined over-ear cushions that make it even more comfortable for long gaming sessions. The high fidelity 7.1 virtual surround sound intensifies the audio experience within compatible games. And the augmented noise-cancelling hidden microphones provide crisp, clear communication with your friends and teammates.” 

It’s not just a pretty face either, as Sony has revealed that while the new Gold Wireless Headset will be compatible with your PS4, and mobile devices, it will also be compatible for PSVR play! And if you were looking for custom audio loadouts, according to Sony, you’ll be able to do this with ease through the Headset Companion App.
