PS4 Update 1.60 Arrives Today, Supports Pulse Headsets

When the PlayStation 4 launched, it unfortunately wasn't compatible with most headsets.

Sony did promise that a future system update would allow more headsets to be used with the new console, and that update has arrived:

Sony has announced that system software update 1.60 arrives today, and it adds support for 7.1 surround sound headsets like the Pulse and Pulse Elite Edition. The update goes live later tonight.

Furthermore, Sony has revealed an all-new wireless headset. It's called simply the Gold Wireless Headset and it will hit store shelves "early this month" with a reasonable price tag of $100. The unit boasts 7.1 surround sound, custom audio modes created by developers, a noise-cancelling microphone for voice chat, and customizable faceplates. It's compatible with the PS4, PS3 and PC and provides you with 8 hours of use via wireless adapter. The versatile headset even works with the Vita and other mobile devices!

It's time to enjoy better audio when playing your PS4. That'll complete the experience, yes?
