Are you just getting to grips with gaming? Maybe you’ve grabbed yourself a PlayStation 5 against all odds? Or perhaps you’re just looking for an accessories update.

Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered. In our quick guide to PlayStation 5 headsets, we’ll tell you what they are, why you need one, and how you set them up.

Back to basics: Immersive gaming

Before we walk the walk with headsets, let’s talk about why they exist.

Immersive gaming.

The way we game has evolved over the years. Our PlayStation’s have entered our bedrooms, and PS Plus keeps you connected with your friends anytime, anywhere.

But with great gaming power comes great gaming responsibility.

So, what superpowers do you need?

You don’t need to be bit by a radioactive spider. But you do need a PlayStation 5 headset.

So, no matter who’s sleeping away the hours you play, you can game from dusk till dawn without missing a beat. Even better, you can chat away with your mates in complete comfort.

Unlike the PlayStation 5 itself, its headsets are easier to find. But with so many choices, which do you pick? Read up on our guide now, and we’ll help you out with our headsets.

What are gaming headsets?

Gaming headsets turn PlayStation 5 gaming into a fully immersive experience. Whether you’re trash-talking your opponents or soaking up the soundtrack, it’s that simple.

How do gaming headsets work?

Online gaming keeps us connected. Setting up your gaming headset does the same. All you need to do is pick up your PlayStation 5 controller, plug in your audio jack on the controller’s port, and let there be sound.

Our fully adjustable gaming headsets for PlayStation 5 give you room to move around. All of our headsets offer a 1.5-metre cable with a3.5mm jack. So no matter where you’re sitting or standing, you can game in comfort.

Why do I need a gaming headset?

If you’re sharing your space with others, your gaming shouldn’t have to stop when it’s time for someone to sleep. Like the Zombies you’re shooting in half on Call of Duty, gaming headsets mean you can just keep going from sunrise to sunset.

If that’s not enough, here are three more reasons why you need a gaming headset:

  • Your own Do Not Disturb button – we’ve all been there. We’ve all been knees deep in a compelling campaign and suddenly sent spiralling back to reality. And why? Because our little brothers and sisters ran in, or it’s time for dinner. Gaming headsets limit disturbances like you’re a living do not disturb button.
  • Communicating with your team – Have you ever found yourself fuming at a team member’s mistake? Or fancied trash-talking an opponent? Gaming headsets take your PlayStation 5 experience to a new level by letting you communicate with your team and anyone else in your online world.
  • Sudden comfort – If you’re like us, one does not simply spend an hour on our PlayStation 5’s. You’ll be gaming for hours on end, so why do it without comfort? Gaming headsets offer your ears relief and protection, so you’ll be feeling fresher than ever.

How do I set up and use my headset?

Setting up your gaming headset couldn’t be easier. It’s the PlayStation 5 trophy we can all earn.

All you need to do is follow these quick and easy steps to have your headset up and running right away:

  1. Double-check the 3.5mm jack is in place on your headset.
  2. Grab the other end and plug it into the hole-shaped slot on your PlayStation 5 controller.
  3. 3…2…1…you should now have sound! If you don’t, simply open the settings menu, scroll to sound, and play around.

What features does a headset have?

What features don’t our gaming headsets have?

Whether it’s our Sabre Stereo Gaming Headset (Black/White), Nighthawk Chat Gaming Headset, or Nighthawk Stereo Gaming Headset, they’re the gifts that keep on giving.

You can enhance your gaming experience instantly with our headsets 40 and 50mm speaker drivers. Offering you superior sound clarity, you can say goodbye to subtitles and hello to quality audio.

Sometimes it’s too loud, and sometimes it’s too quiet. Our inline volume control units are ergonomically designed, letting you adjust your audio levels at any time.

Comfort eating? No thank you. Comfort gaming? Yes please. Soft cushioned headbands and ear cups maximise comfort, so you can always be in control.

Headsets might be one-size-fits-all but heads themselves aren’t.But don’t worry, our headsets have adjustable, flexible microphones you can move into the perfect position.

And if you don’t fancy talking, our Sabre Stereo Gaming Headset has a fully retractable microphone you can stow away discreetly.
