Sony Reveals Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset (Elite Edition) For Gamers

With E3 coming up this week, it's obvious that gaming gear is going to be in the spotlight here soon. But we can't say we expected Sony to be one of the companies introducing new gaming headsets. Nevertheless, the Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset (Elite Edition) has been revealed, with a product name that's almost as long as the time you'll have to wait to pick one up. A year after Sony introduced the Official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset, this new device adds a bit of style, as well as "BassImpact" technology. We'll let you guess what that adds.

Now that you've guessed, here's Sony's quote on the matter: "BassImpact technology translates bass sounds into ‘pulses’ around the earpads of the headset." It also brings 7.1 sound to your eardrums, Preset Modes to optimize your audio experience for select gaming genres, movies, and music, hidden noise-cancelling microphones deliver crystal clear voice chat and allow for a more streamlined design, and compatibility with PS3, PS Vita, favorite mobile device or MP3 player (it connects via built-in 3.5mm audio jack and included auxiliary cable).

It'll ship this fall for $149.99, but you can get a little closer right now in the video above.
