      PlayStation Link: A New Era in Wireless Audio Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore leverage the new PlayStation Link wireless audio technology to connect seamlessly with the PlayStation Portal. This innovative technology ensures low-latency, lossless audio, and effortless switching between multiple PlayStation Link hosts, including the PS5 with the USB adapter and PlayStation Portal.

      When using Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore with the PS5, the included USB adapter is essential for enabling PlayStation Link. Moreover, the PlayStation Link USB adapter will be available as a standalone item for use with PC and Mac, providing the same lossless, low-latency audio experience.

      Remarkably, both Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore can simultaneously connect to a PlayStation Link supported device (PS5, PC, Mac, or PlayStation Portal) and a Bluetooth-supported device. For example, Pulse Explore can connect to the PS5 (via the USB adapter) through PlayStation Link and a mobile phone via Bluetooth simultaneously, allowing gamers to seamlessly switch between gaming and calls.

      Sony are eagerly looking forward to bringing this new product lineup to the PS5 community, enhancing the gaming experience with unprecedented immersion.
