Gold Wireless Headset - PS's Newest Gaming Headset!

[ Edited ]
124 replies 3222 views Edited Feb 12, 2014

I just bought a Pulse Elite on Amazon yesterday for $116 and today I saw what seems like a new PlayStation branded headset on Best Buy called Sony Gold. I was wondering which one is better?

 

Apparently the headset is not yet available but both Best Buy and Play-Asia have their listings for it up already.

I hope the link works because this website acting up on IE and Chrome on Chrome I can't even click on anything unless it's right clicked. It's basically unusable on Chrome.

Funny you posted this because I just started looking for some today!  If its any consolation the Pulse look way better. LOL, but if the Gold edition is cheaper I may have to grab them. Would love to see some reviews first.

It is cheaper it's $99.99 but there are no reviews anywhere and apparently it came out just a few days ago.

Ugh, I expect this is going to tick a few people off.

 

Brings out a new headset expecting PlayStation fans to buy it.

DOES NOT being out a patch to all prior headset owners to work with PS4 wirelessly.

 

Egad...

 

Seeing as it's using the same Sony technology though (surround not as good as a Dolby 7.1 headset, as it's More of a expanded Stereo headset actually), I'm a bit disappointed as I hoped Sony would strike a deal with Dolby or DTS. Maybe the Platinum model will do this...

Interesting. I like how they fold up.

 

I would imagine the Puse Elite is superior based on the price point, but I would like to see some impressions/reviews.

I am very surprised Sony hasn't released a patch. However, I do believe with the release of this new Headset it won't be much longer. Because if they don't release the patch for older headset's there will be a Huge mess on Sony's hands.

@da1writer Is there really a platinum model or are you just joking around?
