Sony is reportedly working on new wireless earbuds and a wireless headset made specifically for the PS5. Both are rumored to launch between April this year and March next year, according to Insider gaming (opens in new tab).
Sony has had a lot of success with its wireless earbuds – the WF-1000XM4 (pictured) top our list of the best wireless earbuds, as did their predecessors, the XM3. The PS5 earbuds – known internally as Project Nomad – will reportedly have five hours of battery life, three hours less than the XM4. They apparently ship with a charging case that connects to the PS5 via a USB-C cable. That suggests they can be used as a standard pair of wireless earbuds for wireless listening from your phone, tablet or laptop.
The more traditional headset is currently known as Voyager and should have similar features to Sony’s Inzone H7 headset.
Both product launches could coincide with rumors of Sony revamping the PS5 console. The gaming giant is said to have a PS5 Slim and possibly a PS5 Pro console in the works, in keeping with previous generations of PlayStation. A slimmer PS5 could have a detachable disc drive that could be purchased as an optional extra, eliminating the need for a separate PS5 Digital discless console.
The next PS5 variant is rumored to be out around September, so it could well be that the PS5 wireless earbuds and headset launch around the same time. Stay tuned for more.
