If you're looking to upgrade the Sony earbuds that come with the PlayStation VR, Plantronics' Sony-blessed Rig 4VR will be available this fall as a companion accessory.
PlayStation VR won't ship till this fall, but Plantronics is jumping on the VR bandwagon with a $70/AU$119 gaming headset, the Rig 4VR, that's designed to be used specifically with Sony's upcoming virtual reality accessory for the PS4. There's no word yet on UK pricing, but Plantronics Rig 500 gaming series headsets, which this headset is based on, cost around £60.
Like the Rig 500 series, the Rig 4VR is constructed with a light, flexible frame. Plantronics says it has a "unique oval earcup design" that's been ergonomically designed to offer a very comfortable fit when used with the PlayStation VR. It's also been tuned for PlayStation VR, Plantronics reps tell CNET.
The PlayStation VR ($400/AU$550) includes Sony earbuds, but a lot of people will want to use better headphones that deliver a more immersive audio experience -- or at least that's what Plantronics is hoping.
Here are the Rig4's key specs:
