How to Use the PS5 Pulse 3D Headset on a PC

To use the PS5 Pulse 3D headset on a PC, begin by plugging the included wireless USB transmitter into a USB port on your computer. Once you power on the headset, it will automatically pair with the USB dongle and proceed to install any necessary drivers on your PC.

After installation, your PC will recognize the device as "Speakers (wireless stereo headset)" to confirm that the headphones are successfully connected. In some cases, you may find that you need to configure the sound yourself.

To do this:

  • Right-click on the audio icon in the bottom-right corner of your screen.
  • Click on Open Sound Settings. This will open a new window.
  • Under Output, click on the dropdown marked Choose your output device.
  • Select the 3D Pulse headset from the list, and tweak your settings until you get audio.

What Features Does the Pulse 3D Headset Have?

The Pulse 3D headset comes with a wealth of features to try to deliver the most immersive gameplay experience possible. In no particular order, these include:

  • 3D Audio compatibility
  • EQ presets, which allow you to customise the headset's equaliser settings
  • Dual hidden microphones. These help to capture your voice clearly when communicating with friends online. They also have noise-cancelling tech, to reduce ambient noise interference.
  • As we mentioned above, there is a wireless adaptor that plugs into your PS5, PS4, PC, Mac, and even an Xbox.
  • Up to 12 hours of battery life.
  • There's also a 3.5mm jack and compatible cable. This allows you to connect your headset to other devices, such as mobile devices (those that have a 3.5mm jack port, of course) and PSVR.
