The Pulse Wireless Headset: Elite Edition is a solid, reliable offering from Sony. It looks and feels more expensive than its $150 price mark, and more importantly, the wireless headset's sound quality is fantastic. It even comes with a number of special features that tech junkies like yourself will enjoy, including preset sound modes and a BassImpact feature that lets you "feel the sound."
When it comes to headsets, sound and comfort are definitely the most important factors to me, and that's exactly where the Pulse delivers. The Pulse boasts 7.1 virtual surround sound, which definitely helps to accentuate many types of gaming experiences. Don't expect the type of quality from a true 7.1 home audio system or anything. But let's say if you're in to shooters, you'll be able to hear your enemy before they creep up on you, so they offer a similar level of immersion.
The sound quality from the Pulse is pristine, and you can even customize the headset for an optimal experience when watching movies and listening to music, as well as when you're playing games, by using the device's side controls. The various modes (movies, music, shooters, fighting, and racing games) use the Pulse's innovative BassImpact technology, which delivers bass-triggered pulses to the cans based on what you're doing. For example, if you're playing a racing game with BassImpact on, you'll actually feel the motor rev. The intensity of the pulses changes based on the mode you're on, and it even works with music if you really want to feel that bass.
