Looking for a new headset for your PlayStation 4? Then Sony may have you covered, as they announced they have a new PlayStation gold wireless headset releasing later this month.

Just like the previous gold wireless headset, the updated model will feature 7.1 surround sound. It will be priced at $99.9 and will be available with the next few weeks.

We’re happy to announce that a new Gold Wireless Headset, which delivers enhanced comfort and performance, will be available in the next few weeks for $99.99 (MSRP) in the U.S.

The headset maintains everything you loved, while featuring a new sleek design with refined over-ear cushions that make it even more comfortable for long gaming sessions. The high fidelity 7.1 virtual surround sound intensifies the audio experience within compatible games. And the augmented noise-cancelling hidden microphones provide crisp, clear communication with your friends and teammates.

With the included 3.5mm audio cable, the Gold Headset is compatible with PlayStation VR and mobile devices. The new design makes the Gold Headset extra comfortable to wear with PS VR. It’s a great way to immerse yourself in The Inpatient, a recently launched PS VR exclusive horror experience, with the unsettling sounds of scuttling insects and unexplained noises inside the Blackwood Pines Sanatorium (In addition to PS VR, you’ll need a PS4 system and PlayStation Camera to experience VR).

While I don’t own a pair of the original headset, I’ve heard from friends that do and swear by them. Considering that many of them have owned them since day one, that’s saying something. Though, if they’re called “Gold”, then why aren’t they?

What Sony hasn’t doesn’t provided is any details regarding the size of headset’s drivers. We’re contacting Sony to get some information on that and will update accordingly.
