Sony Introduces the PlayStation Pulse Elite Wireless Headset

Posted Fri Jun 1, 2012 at 09:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The headset packs BassImpact, which turns bass into a pulse around your ears.

Have you ever been playing a game and thought to yourself "Hey self, wouldn't it be cool if that explosion caused a vibrating pulse around my ears? The Pulse Wireless Headset – Elite Edition does just that, courtesy of a technology called BassImpact.

It's a wireless stereo headset that includes noise-cancelling microphones, higher fidelity speakers than previous models and compatibility with your PS3 and Vita. It's coming this fall at $149.

With E3 coming up, companies are eager to make sure their smaller announcements don't get overlooked, and so reveal some things a bit early. The new Pulse Elite Edition isn't going to be the focus of Sony's press conference – it'll be a footnote if anything. But it's a slick new headset nonetheless.
