PlayStation fans have plenty of devices to look forward to in the coming months. The new “slim” PlayStation 5 has already landed (at least in limited quantities), while PlayStation Portal will arrive in less than a week. Meanwhile, the $199.99 Pulse Explore earbuds and $149.99 Pulse Elite earbuds are scheduled to launch on December 6 and February 21, respectively.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on the Pulse Explore and Pulse Elite, you can pre-order them starting today, November 9, in the US, UK, France, Germany, and other European countries. To help make the process a little easier, we’ve put together all the details you need so you can place your pre-orders as soon as possible.
He Press Explore are a unique set of wireless headphones designed to deliver low latency and lossless audio. Sony claims this creates a more immersive experience, although we have yet to try the headphones to see how well they do for ourselves. In addition to the PlayStation Portal, the headset can be connected to a PS5, PC or Mac via PlayStation Link technology via the included PlayStation Link USB Adapter. You can also simultaneously connect Pulse Explore to a PlayStation Link compatible device, such as the PS5, and a Bluetooth compatible device, such as your phone, so you can answer calls while you play.
Sony will also soon launch the pulse elite, which is a wireless headset that appears to be a follow-up to the excellent Pulse 3D headset from 2020. However, unlike the Pulse 3D, Sony’s new headset features a microphone with a retractable boom that can be hidden in the cup with a stand charge to get on with it. The headphones also feature AI-enhanced noise rejection technology, which is supposed to filter out unwanted background noise.
Like the Pulse Explore, the Pulse Elite is capable of delivering low-latency, lossless audio and is compatible with PlayStation Link. As a result, you can use it with PlayStation Portal or connect it to your PS5, PC or Mac using the included PlayStation Link USB adapter. The headphones can also simultaneously connect to Bluetooth-enabled devices such as smartphones.
