Today Sony Associate Product Marketing Manager Richard Ho
has officially introduced the Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset Elite Edition which will be coming to retailers this Fall with a video of it in action below!
To quote: E3 is just around the corner, and we hope you're as excited as we are about all of the games that will be unveiled and the upcoming announcements we have in store for you.
Before we get to the big week, we've decided to curb your appetite by giving you a sneak peak at the newest addition to the PlayStation accessories family.
Last year we introduced the Official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset, and this year we're amplifying your audio experience with the brand new Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset - Elite Edition, featuring "BassImpact" technology.
BassImpact technology translates bass sounds into 'pulses' around the earpads of the headset. Pulse - Elite Edition combines 7.1 virtual surround sound with BassImpact to deliver an unprecedented level of immersion, while sharpening your perception on the battlefield or anywhere else you play.
This is truly the ultimate audio advantage. Additionally, Pulse - Elite Edition incorporates all the great features of the Wireless Stereo Headset and these new features:
• Higher fidelity speaker drivers for dynamic sound
• Preset Modes to optimize your audio experience for select gaming genres, movies, and music
• Hidden noise-cancelling microphones deliver crystal clear voice chat and allow for a more streamlined design
• Compatible with your PS3, PS Vita, favorite mobile device or MP3 player (connects via built-in 3.5mm audio jack and included auxiliary cable)
Available this fall for $149.99 (MSRP), this headset is an incredible value, giving you a great sound experience for gaming at home on PS3, or on the go using your PS Vita or mobile device.
As promised, we will be releasing a new PS3 firmware update to address the unintended effects in certain games that were created by the "Sidetone" feature introduced with the PS3 system software update (v4.10). Thanks for your continued patience.
Finally, as noted on Sony's official product page
, BassImpact technology, 7.1 virtual surround sound & on-screen headset updates are only available on the PS3 system and require system software version 4.20 or later.
