Sony Pulse 3D Wireless Headphones Detailed Review

The Sony Pulse 3D Wireless Headset is a gaming headset made for PlayStation that comes in a black and white aesthetic to match the console. The console in question is definitely the PlayStation 5, but that doesn't mean the headset won't work with previous generation PlayStations or even PCs. However, you will miss out on some features. With that said, let's 2  


 

Sony Pulse 3D: construction and comfort

Design-wise, as we just mentioned, the first thing you'll notice about Sony Pulse 3D is its beauty. It certainly looks like part of the PlayStation 5 accessory with its futuristic design. While the black and white variant of Pulse 3D is better suited to console, there is a black variant for more nervous gamers.

As for the construction, the entire frame is made of hard plastic and there is a rubber suspension band to support the top of the head, which is quite comfortable even after prolonged use. However, people with larger ears and heads will have some issues with Pulse 3D. There is no adjustment beyond a certain point for larger heads, and leather earmuffs can put too much pressure on large ears, which can be very uncomfortable even after little use. The earbuds fit me well, and while the fit works, they are a comfortable pair of earbuds with a good seal around the ears.


Features

Feature-wise, you have all the internal controls on the left earcup, including buttons to adjust volume, game, and chat balance if you're using it with a PlayStation 5, microphone monitoring, or a tone switch. side. Hears. , silence and power. All the buttons on the single earpiece can feel a bit heavy at first, but each button has a different feel, they're well spaced, and they're all a different height so you can tell them apart. Once you've used Pulse 3D for a while, you should have no problem navigating the buttons.

Features of Sony Pulse 3D

Again, we should point out that they were made for PlayStation 5, so you'll miss out on some features, like in-game chat balance, which we mentioned for example. Also, when you use the headset with a PC, the volume controls on the headset are separate from the volume controls on your PC, so you'll need to adjust the volume through the volume control on the headset.

It was really easy to pair and use Pulse 3D with a PlayStation 4 and even a PC. Simply plug in the 2.4Ghz wireless USB dongle and you're ready to go. The headset also comes with a detachable 3.5mm cable which opens up the number of platforms these headsets can work with.




Performance

When it comes to sound, the Sony Pulse 3D has a fairly balanced sound profile with slightly muffled bass and mids. However, it's very noticeable when listening to music and shouldn't bother anyone too much when it comes to gaming. Boosted bass can sometimes overshadow other audio elements, so it can be a bit difficult trying to hear voices or footsteps with Pulse 3D during gunshots or other banging sounds in the background.

Pulse 3D's isolation isn't very good. Even if the earphone is the right one and you get a good seal, the sounds of the environment will reach it. It shouldn't be a big problem if you play in a quiet environment.

Speaking of microphones, there's no boom mic on the Pulse 3D, instead, we do have a built-in mic that suffers from all the usual complaints that come with them. The sound is slightly muffled and the speaker volume is amplified to compensate. It can create a scratchy sound when you speak too close to the microphone, but overall the sound quality is good. It's no match for a proper boom mic, but it does help maintain the overall aesthetic of the Pulse 3D.




Battery life

When it comes to battery life, the Sony Pulse 3D comes with an advertised battery life of up to 12 hours on a single charge, which we found to be pretty accurate for our time. The Pulse comes with a Type-C cable in the box for 3D charging, and you can use the headset with a 3.5mm connection if the battery is at your disposal. Still, 12 hours is short when it comes to wireless gaming headsets. The Arctic 7P, for example, provides around 24 hours on a single charge, and the Logitech G435 provides up to 18 hours, and both options support AudioTek's Tempest 3D.
