Sony is slowly but steadily increasing the mix of peripherals available for PS5, and the typically reliable Insider Gaming purports to have the scoop on another product: wireless earbuds. Scheduled to release anywhere from April 2023 through March 2024, the portable AirPod-inspired accessories will allegedly pack five hours of battery life, and will come with a USB charging case like so many of their contemporaries.

According to the aforementioned publication, the headphones are being codenamed Project Nomad, with an updated wireless headset also scheduled to release around the same time. This is being referred to as Project Voyager internally. It’s said that the new cans will feature similar functionality to the Inzone H7 headset, which currently retails for around $200.

Insider Gaming hypothesises that these new accessories, along with the DualSense Edge and PSVR2 headset, will all be part of a refreshed product slate alongside a redesigned PS5 console later this year. For those who haven’t been following the speculation, it’s rumoured that a system with a detachable disc drive will be made available in 2023, streamlining the platform holder’s manufacturing pipeline – and providing customers with more flexibility when picking up the digital-only device.
