Sony’s Silver Wired Headset Makes Its Way To Retailers

It has been statistically proven that random people you meet in the midst of an online gaming session are jerks and won’t hesitate to question your sexual orientation and spout off a string of curses that would make even the most drunken sailor blush. Without a top quality headset, however, you might miss a few choice phrases — and then how would your vocabulary ever expand?

Luckily for all of us, Sony seems to release a new and improved headset every other month or so. The latest in their long line of headsets is the Silver Wired Headset, and according to a post on the PlayStation blog it’s currently making its way to a variety of retailers. The current price is $69.99, and the headset comes complete with 7.1 virtual surround sound, a retractable mic, and custom audio modes.

The custom audio modes have been created for specific PlayStation games, with current modes in development for Far Cry 4, inFAMOUS: Second Son, Destiny, The Last of Us, and Watch Dogs. The headset will also be compatible with the Vita and most other mobile devices that feature a 3.5 mm jack.
