Sony has launched its first PlayStation earbuds that can be used by users of PlayStation 5, PC or Project Q handheld to experience lossless audio while gaming. The new PlayStation Earbuds look like mini PlayStation consoles, which could give users the feel of being inside the PlayStation ecosystem.
Announcing it at the PlayStation Showcase on Wednesday, Sony said the new earbuds will feature “new wireless technology developed by SIE.” This feature will let the earbuds support lossless audio with low latency later this year.
Sony’s audio products are quite popular and are often awarded for their sound quality. These include truly wireless earbuds like the Sony WF-1000XM4, which is one of the best earbuds from the company. But the PlayStation earbuds are better than them in terms of latency. Bluetooth support alone cannot provide the best wireless audio experience while gaming on PlayStation 5, which is where the new PlayStation Earbuds can improve the experience.
Sony didn’t say much about the new PlayStation Earbuds during the event. So apart from how these earbuds look, we do not know anything about the specifications or features. Heck, we don’t even know if these earbuds will have a plain name, PlayStation Earbuds, or a recognizable name that makes it sound like a PlayStation accessory.
More hardware announced at PlayStation Showcase 2o23
Sony made several announcements during the showcase. In addition to new game titles, Sony announced its new handheld device called Project Q. The handheld looks a lot like the Nintendo Switch or the Asus ROG Companion, but it works a little differently. Instead of letting you play games natively or stream games from the cloud, it will only allow you to play games from the PlayStation 5. In other words, you need to be able to play the PlayStation 5 console and the particular game you downloaded on it. On Project Q only over a Wi-Fi connection. The Q handheld sports an 8-inch HD screen with a maximum output of 1080p at 60fps. The Project Q handheld is expected to arrive in June with a price announcement.
