It seems like Sony’s making ready a brand new vary of gaming headsets and because of a current leak, we have a good suggestion of what to anticipate.
As a substitute of being PS5 branded just like the earlier Pulse 3D Wi-fi Headset, Sony’s reportedly prepping a brand new vary known as the ‘Inzone H-Sequence’. This new info comes from 91Mobiles (opens in new tab) and OnLeaks (opens in new tab), who offered product photographs and leaked specs for 3 separate headsets. Reportedly, all three of those choices include 360 spatial sound for gaming, so it is certain to shake up our greatest PS5 headsets checklist.
First is the wired Sony Inzone H3, a seemingly budget-friendly possibility. There is a black mic hooked up to the left headphone earcup, with the connecting wire subsequent to it. It additionally has an ‘NC/AMB’ button, offering noise canceling and an ambient sound mode. That is not seen on the opposite headset pictures, which you’ll be able to see under, although contemplating each seem like extra premium choices, we might be stunned if it is solely absent.

Then we have the Sony Inzone H7, a wi-fi headset that sports activities the same design to the H3, with a number of buttons positioned in numerous positions. That additionally incorporates a ‘GAME/CHAT’ button, a Bluetooth button for pairing up your headset, and an influence on/off button. For connecting the Inzone H7 to your PC, it additionally features a USB dongle and USB Kind-C cable.
Lastly, we transfer on to the high-end selection, the wi-fi Sony Inzone H9. It is largely much like the Inzone H7, that includes the identical connectivity choices with a few extras. Sporting an LED gentle on the earcups, this one reportedly makes use of noise-canceling for “supercharged listening to and tremendous sharp reflexes”.
Presently, Sony hasn’t formally commented on the Inzone headset leak. No pricing info or launch date was included both, so we do not know what to anticipate simply but. Nonetheless, given the great nature of this report, I would speculate an announcement is probably going coming quickly.
Finger on the heartbeat
When Sony launched the PS5 two years in the past, it introduced a number of official equipment too, together with the Pulse 3D Wi-fi Headset. Nick Pino was impressed in our overview, stating the way it was straightforward to setup and provided nice stereo sound. Nonetheless, due to a built-in mic, plastic construct high quality, and shorter battery life, there’s room for enchancment.
Crucially, Pulse is not low-cost both, coming in at $99 / £89.99 / $110 AUD. This might place Sony’s Inzone collection as a tempting different, providing 3D audio choices for gamers of all budgets. It is value noting whereas a PS5 system replace again in January enabled 3D audio for TV audio system, headset 3D audio is usually thought of the superior possibility.
The dearth of PlayStation branding suggests Sony’s angling it in direction of a wider viewers, too, lining up effectively with the corporate’s current PC push. Following God of Conflict in January, it is bringing Marvel’s Spider-Man and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Assortment to PC later this 12 months too. And it is best to know 3D audio is virtually important in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves. So, whereas Pulse is PC appropriate, choosing Inzone branding might show helpful for that market in the long run.
