Sony Unveils New Details on PlayStation Portal, Pulse Elite Headset, and Pulse Explore Earbuds
Sony has officially offered details about their upcoming hardware line, consisting of the PlayStation Portal Remote Player, Pulse Elite Wireless Headset, and Pulse Explore Wireless Earbuds.
PlayStation Portal Remote Player
Formerly known as Project Q, the PlayStation Portal is a remote player that includes DualSense wireless controller features such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, and paired with an 8-inch LCD screen that is capable of 1080p at 60fps.
The device is said to connect remotely to the PS5 over Wi-Fi, play supported games that are installed on the PS5 and use the DualSense controller. PS VR2 games and games streamed through PlayStation Plus cloud streaming are not supported.
The PlayStation Portal is priced at $199.99 (roughly PHP 11,000) and will launch later this year.
Pulse Elite Wireless Headset
The Pulse Elite is the latest wireless headset from Sony and will offer lossless audio, a retractable boom mic, and AI-enhanced noise rejection, which can filter background noise.
The peripheral is one of the first PlayStation audio devices to offer custom-designed planar magnetic drivers for an audiophile-level experience.
The Pulse Elite Wireless Headset is priced at $149.99 (roughly PHP8,000). No launch date has been specified.
Pulse Explore Wireless Earbuds
The Pulse Explore Wireless Earbuds are PlayStation’s first set of wireless earbuds that feature dual microphones and AI-enhanced noise rejection, all packed in a handy charging case.
It will also incorporate custom-designed planar magnetic drivers, similar to the Pulse Elite.
The Pulse Explore Wireless Earbuds will retail for $199.99 (roughly PHP 11,000). No launch date has been specified.
Both audio devices will connect directly to the PlayStation Portal Remote Player using a new wireless audio technology called the PlayStation Link, which delivers “low latency, lossless audio, and easy switching between multiple PlayStation Link hosts such as PS5 with the USB adapter and PlayStation Portal.”
The aforementioned audio devices will come with a USB adaptor and is required to use the technology. The USB adaptor can also be used on PCs and Macs to connect to a wider range of devices, along with connecting simultaneously to a PlayStation Link-supported device (PS5, PC, Mac, or PlayStation Portal) and a Bluetooth-supported device.
