PS5 Pulse 3D headset deals are more common now that Sony's official headset has been available for over two years. We've seen small discounts during sales events throughout the year so that's likely the best time to buy. If you're after one right now, though, all of today's best prices are below.

We've come a long way since there was so little stock of the wireless gaming headset over the PS5 launch period. For a while, the PS5 Pulse 3D headset was almost as difficult to find as the PS5 itself. If you're looking to kit out your console with all the official accessories, however, the Pulse 3D headset is a decent option.

PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset deals

Now that stock of the Pulse 3D headset is stable, we can turn our attention to finding you all the cheapest deals. The Pulse 3D headset is usually priced at $99.99 / £89.99 / AU$159. Considering the PS4's Platinum Wireless headset came in at $130, there's some serious value packed into the next generation. 

Unfortunately, there haven't been many Pulse 3D headset deals gracing the shelves outside of major sales events where it has dropped by up to $20 / £20. Nevertheless, you'll find all of today's lowest prices just below.

Is the PS5 Pulse 3D headset price worth it?

Advanced, customized surround sound, tracking for a massive number of audio sources in-game and noise canceling dual microphones, the PS5 Pulse 3D headset has been developed to get the most out of the PS5's Tempest 3D AudioTech. That translates to a whole lot of immersive, 3D gameplay, and at a considerably cheaper price than previous Sony headsets. 

Take that with the new design, and the fact that other headsets won't make the most of Sony's own 3D Tempest Audio and the Pulse 3D headset price is certainly worth it - at least until more premium headsets come along.

Can you use other headsets with PS5?

Sony has announced that other gaming headsets will be able to reproduce the PS5's 3D sound, so you don't have to pick up the Pulse 3D headset to enjoy the attention Sony has paid to its audio. However, as far as we know the Pulse 3D model will be the only headset on the market that supports 3D Tempest tech at launch. That means you'll need to grab this to get the best experience straight out the box.

You'll also find plenty of cheap gaming headsets up for grabs this week, if you don't want to go with Sony's official cups. However, it's worth noting that these headphones won't offer up Sony's own Tempest Audio tech. We're also rounding up all the latest cheap PS5 game deals available right now.
