Sony is introducing a new virtual 7.1 wireless PlayStation headset. One of the lagging support items for the new consoles has been headset support. In the case of the PS4, Sony had promised to add full support for their PULSE headset models in early 2014. Today, Sony announced that support for the PULSE headset models was coming as part of tonight's 1.60 system update.


"We know you’ve been patiently waiting for this update, which means PS4 owners will now be able to enjoy an enhanced gaming experience with 7.1 virtual surround sound and crystal clear voice chat with our official PlayStation headsets."

In addition to the support for the PULSE models, Sony also announced a new PlayStation Wireless headset, the Gold Wireless Headset, which "offers 7.1 virtual surround sound, custom audio modes created by developers specifically for PlayStation games, a hidden noise cancelling microphone for voice chat while playing online, customizable faceplates, and other features –all for $99.99 (MSRP)."

The Gold headset is supposed to be good for eight hours of wireless play for the PS4, PS3, and PC. The headset also supports a wired mode for devices like the PS Vita or any other 3.5mm enabled audio device. Both the new headset and the PULSE models are compatible with the free Headset app coming to PSN this month. "The app allows you to download developer-created game modes that are specifically tuned to enhance a game’s audio. Kicking off the custom sound modes will be Sucker Punch, who’s developing a mode for their highly anticipated PS4 exclusive inFAMOUS Second Son. In addition to these custom game modes, the app also offers a variety of preset audio modes for games, music and movies, as well as a tool to create your own custom EQ mode."

Other 1.60 update features have yet to be revealed.
