Sony Interactive Entertainment just announced a new colour that will be joining the PULSE 3D Wireless Headset lineup starting next month, Midnight Black, building on the galaxy-themed colours introduced for DualSense controllers in June.

Midnight Black features two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing to reflect the vision of space through the night sky and matches the same colour scheme as the DualSense controller in Midnight Black.

The PULSE 3D Wireless Headset is specifically designed to take full advantage of the console’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, with a fine-tuned frequency response to help players more precisely place sounds in exact locations to match on-screen gameplay.
