Sony’s first PlayStation earbuds promise lossless audio for PS5 and PC gaming

PlayStation is launching its own pair of wireless earbuds. During the PlayStation Showcase on Wednesday, Sony showed off its first pair of Bluetooth earbuds that you can use with the PlayStation 5, PC or with its new Project Q handheld device.

Sony says the earbuds will feature “new wireless technology developed by SIE” later this year to enable them to deliver lossless, low-latency audio. The company hasn’t revealed too much about the wireless earbuds, but says additional details will be forthcoming “in the coming months”. While Sony already has some well-regarded wireless earbuds, such as the Sony WF-1000XM4, Bluetooth support alone isn’t good enough to use them directly with your PS5 for gaming.

Next Marvel’s Spider Man 2 and a Metal Gear solid 3 remake, Sony’s upcoming Project Q handheld stole the show at the PlayStation event. The handheld, which resembles an elongated DualSense controller with a screen in between, has an 8-inch LCD screen that can run games at up to 1080p and 60fps over Wi-Fi. As is the case with these new buds, Sony has only shared a short teaser of what to expect in the coming months.
