Whether you watch it for relaxation purposes or find it a bit weird, there’s no doubt that ASMR is big business on YouTube right now. And it was only a matter of time before some content creators discovered the DualSense controller and its plethora of sounds. This video in particular, by ASMatt R, is interesting because he’s able to capture the haptic feedback sensation through his 3D microphone.

So, if you haven’t used the PlayStation 5’s new controller yet, you may not fully appreciate the different textures it’s able to create. But this video is really interesting: you can actually “hear” what it “feels” like to play Astro’s Playroom. That’s because haptic feedback is created using wave files, similar to sounds. We found it interesting, anyway – your mileage may vary.
