The Next Generation: NEW PlayStation Portal Unboxing and Pulse Explore Experience
November 11, 2023
The PlayStation Pulse Explore earbuds are designed to work with the PlayStation 5 or PlayStation Portal. The device is a handheld Remote Play device that allows users to play games from their PS5 and stream them directly to the device. It features a similar shape to a dual-sense controller, with the same button layout, including the D-pad, joysticks, face buttons, menu, share button, PlayStation button, mute button, and power button. The PlayStation Link button allows users to pair their Pulse Explorers with their headphones.
The device does not support Bluetooth, but it does allow pairing with the PlayStation Link button, eliminating the need for a dot for specific headphones. The volume button has built-in speakers for listening and playing games, and the device also has speakers built into it. The device has an 8-inch LCD display with 1080p resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. It also has a mic for party chat, a USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The only missing feature is a trackpad, but a digital one is available for interaction. Pre-orders for the PlayStation Pulse Explore earbuds began a while ago, and they are expected to officially be available in November.
The PlayStation Portal is an accessory that will be released on the 15th, allowing users to play games alongside their PS5 without the need to sit in front of the TV. This device is not a standalone device but rather an accessory that streams games from the PS5 to the device. The PlayStation Portal offers a more optimized experience compared to remote play on laptops or phones, allowing users to enjoy the best experience from remote play.
The PlayStation Portal is designed to be comfortable and lightweight, with a wider dual-sense controller that feels like a regular controller. The controller is wider and wider, making it feel more comfortable than holding a regular controller. The PlayStation Portal is priced at $1.99, making it a good price for a device that allows users to play alongside their PS5 without the need to watch content.
However, the PlayStation Portal does not allow users to watch content on the device, but it can stream games. This means that every move made on the PS5 is reflected on the console, allowing users to enjoy their gaming experience while they are away from their TV.
The PlayStation 5 has a new set of earbuds called Pulse Explorers, which work with both the PlayStation Portal and the PS5. These earbuds come with a USB C to USB A cable, different ear tips, and a PlayStation Link adapter. The adapter allows multiple devices to connect to the earbuds simultaneously, allowing users to switch between devices on the go. The earbuds also have Bluetooth, allowing users to listen to music or podcasts while playing games.
The earbuds have a couple of buttons, including volume control and a link button. The top button controls volume for the earbud, while the link button allows pairing with the portal or adapter. The headphones use special drivers for audio, typically found in premium headphones.
The earbuds are priced slightly more than the PlayStation Portal, but they are expected to work well. The review will be available soon, and Sony is praised for hooking up the new PlayStation hardware early. The PlayStation Slim is also available with various cool PlayStation accessories.
