Sony has been promising to patch in wireless headset support for the PlayStation 4 even before the console first launch. The promised update is nowhere to be found, but new headset options may be on the horizon. A pair of retailers have leaked a new official PlayStation headset called the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset, set to retail for $130.

Spotted by Geek, the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset will feature a 7.1 surround sound system with dual earmuffs and a collapsible frame. It will be compatible with PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Also, by calling it Gold, they're leaving room for a Platinum version down the line, of course.

The item is no longer available at either Best Buy or Play-Asia. The headset was originally listed with a February release.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      GRRR...I'm still waiting for the patch that will let me use my current 7.1 Sony Wireless Stereo headset with my PS4. I've practically been checking every day for news about it. I hope Sony is not pulling a bait-and-switch, forcing us to use this option instead.

        This. I've also already had to get the pulse Elites replaced due to faulty power issues, a known problem along with quality control issues with the build.

        Guaranteed there will be a mic. You can't release a headset without including a mic nowadays.

      I'd advise everyone to wait and see on these. The audio quality has been very solid out of the Playstation series headphones, but the build quality and QA testing have been EXTREMELY questionable.
