A PS5 headset is one of the most important accessories you can purchase after getting a PlayStation 5. Unless you have a ridiculous sound system, a good PS5 headset is likely to improve your audio experience while gaming, whether you play competitive multiplayer games or immersive sims. The PS5 also happens to have some cool sound features that can be properly highlighted by select headsets. We’ve rounded up the best PS5 headsets, from high-end wireless options to budget-minded picks that still get the job done. With so many headsets to choose from, it’s not the easiest choice to make. We hope that our list of the best PS5 headsets will make your decision a bit easier.
One of the PS5’s unique features is Sony’s proprietary 3D audio technology called Tempest 3D AudioTech. This enhances directional audio, giving you a better idea of where everything is coming from. This is particularly helpful in first-person games and it’s also extremely useful in quick-moving games like Returnal. Sony’s Pulse 3D headset was designed to work with it, but other headsets you connect to the PS5 utilize it as well, including our favorite PS5 headset: the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+.
