According to sources from the specialized site Insider Gaming, Sony is currently developing dedicated wireless headsets for PlayStation 5. A new wireless headset for PS5 is also in the works.
In its 2023 fiscal year (between April 2023 and March 2024), Sony will launch a dedicated wireless headset for the PlayStation 5 and a new Bluetooth headset designed for its home console. Here’s what Insider Gaming tells us this week, suggesting that these two peripherals are currently in development.
Regarding the earbuds planned for the PS5, these would respond internally to the code name “nomad projectand would benefit from a range close to five hours. This is not necessarily good news since the autonomy offered by the WF-1000XM3 headphones, also marketed by Sony, is around 6 or 8 hours on battery.
Towards a release at the same time as the PS5 with a removable drive?
Of course, there would be a USB-C charging box to reinforce that endurance that could be improved a priori. This box could then be recharged, for example, by connecting it to the PS5… and this method would also work for updates, we read.
As previously mentioned, Sony would also have a new wireless headset in the works for its console – codenamed “Traveler“. This device should partly take over the specifications and positioning of the Inzone H7 headphones, but it is not known what its exact price will be.
Anyway, it is interesting to note that the presumed launch of these two accessories would intervene more or less in the same niche as the PlayStation 5 with removable disk mentioned by the rumor of the last few months. The latter should hit the market in September 2023 according to Insider Gaming
Finally, keep in mind that Sony won’t be the first to launch dedicated wireless gaming headsets. Before him, Razer, for example, exercised with its Hammerhead headphones, compatible with both the PS5 and the Xbox Series S | X
