Audiophiles and gamers as reported via the PS Blog today. It has been revealed that the Platinum Wireless Headset, will be available on January 12 for $159.99 (MSRP), $199.99 (CAD).

Sony since then has been pretty quiet about the headset until now. Here’s the details below.

The headset showcases enhanced, highly positional 7.1 virtual surround sound powered by PlayStation’s proprietary 3D audio technology. Hidden noise-cancelling microphones provide crisp, clear communication without the need for a boom mic. The headset combines superior construction and design offering style, durability, and maximum comfort – especially for long gaming sessions. Platinum is compatible with PlayStation VR and mobile devices using the included 3.5mm audio cable.
