For a while, it was difficult to find stock, but now that the situation is more stable it's a lot easier to find some PS5 Pulse 3D headset deals. We've seen stock holding at major retailers for a while now, so you'll likely be able to find the 3D audio headphones right now. Plus, there's the new Midnight Black color for those who prefer that shade.

That's a relief, as well, as there was so little stock of these cups over the PS5 launch period. For a while, the Pulse 3D headset was almost as difficult to find as the PS5 itself. If you're looking to kit out your new console with all the official accessories, however, the Pulse 3D headset is a decent option - and here's where to look to get the best price.

Now that Pulse 3D headset stock is starting to look up, then, we can turn our attention to bringing that price down. We haven't seen many Pulse 3D headset deals gracing the shelves but there have been a few discounts lately - you'll find all the lowest prices and latest stock just below.

What is the PS5 Pulse 3D headset price?

The Pulse 3D headset price is $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. 

When will we see PS5 Pulse 3D headset deals?

The Pulse 3D headset has only just recovered from early stock shortages, and while demand remains high we wouldn't expect to see many discounts soon. However as this stock grows even steadier, we might start to see some Pulse 3D headset deals over the next couple of months. We'd expect to see these early savings dropping no more than $10 / £10 from the final price, so if you're desperate to get your hands on the headphones as soon as possible, rest assured you won't be missing out on a major discount any time soon.

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.
