Where Can You Buy the PS4 Wireless Headset 2.0 in the UK?

Gold standard

Few first world problems are worse than having the money available to buy a product, but not being able to find it anywhere. Earlier this month, Sony announced the PlayStation Wireless Headset 2.0 – a new set of officially licensed cans designed specifically for use with its suite of home consoles and handhelds. However, despite attaching a tentative 10th February release date to the peripheral, this intrepid editor has spent the past couple of weeks trying to track it down in the UK.

While the product’s been readily available in North America for some time – where it carries a slightly different moniker – none of Britain’s noteworthy retailers were able to give us an update on when it would arrive on these shores. Fortunately, it looks like our hunt is over, as online plaza ShopTo is finally taking pre-orders ahead of a 28th February launch for £79.85. If you’re eager to save a couple of quid, 365Games.co.uk also has the peripheral available for £77.49.

It’s still yet to show up on GAME.co.uk or Amazon.co.uk, but a handful of cunning independent entrepreneurs have taken to selling the North American version through the latter’s website. We were unable to get confirmation that the cans will arrive in physical shops on the same date as listed above, but that seems to be when they’re officially set to deploy, so we’d be surprised if select specialist stores didn’t get some stock. Are you planning to pick up a pair of these posh headphones? Raise the roof in the comments section below.

Can't stand having anything on my head, so these are of no interest to me.

When are they going to enable the old PS3 Bluetooth earpiece? Or any standard Bluetooth units for that matter? Can't be that hard, it's an international standard.

Still, the supplied earbud serves its purpose for now.

@Paranoimia In in the same boat as you. Still got my official Ps3 bluetooth mic awaiting some kind of compatibility update so I can continue to use it. Still, I was using the supplied earbud mic when party chatting last night and I was pretty surprised with how well that seemed to work for something so flimsy lol I hope we do see compatibility for Sony's previous bluetooth accessories at least but the earbud will more than suffice for now

@MadchesterManc @Paranoimia I'm pretty sure sony said those were not going to be compatible, unfortunately. If no one else finds it, I'll try to find a link to that but I have to set my phone down for a while.
