Sony has announced the Platinum Wireless Headset for PS4/Pro, VR and mobile devices. With a beautiful metal design and impressive technology, this is bound to be a hit with gamers. But at $159.99, you’re paying a steep price in comparison to similar products on the market today from Turtle Beach and others.

Headlining a long list of specs is a 7.1-channel virtual surround sound system that is backed by PlayStation’s unique 3D audio algorithm. This technology gives the illusion of sounds coming from different directions, simulating a real life experience on VR titles. At launch, the Platinum headset’s unique audio system will be supported by Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End with more games following suit shortly after. Additional features include noise-cancelling technology, a hidden microphone system and a unique dual-head band design. Sony’s PS4 Platinum Wireless Headset is available to order today for $159.99 with a January 10th delivery date.

The headset showcases enhanced, highly positional 7.1 virtual surround sound powered by PlayStation’s proprietary 3D audio technology. Hidden noise-cancelling microphones provide crisp, clear communication without the need for a boom mic. The headset combines superior construction and design offering style, durability, and maximum comfort – especially for long gaming sessions. Platinum is compatible with PlayStation VR and mobile devices using the included 3.5mm audio cable.
