    I wonder what happened to promises to include support for older 7.1 models in one of upcoming patches :>

    @kadu this patch will add support for older headsets too, no worry
    Also, it’s not called “Pulse 2.0″, actually there is no even Pulse tech inside this one, it’s called “Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0″, please, update the article

    Basically a Pulse Elite Edition without the Bass Impact technology. Well worth $100. Only things I don’t like about the current Pulse Elite is how uncomfortable it can be to wear and how easy the shiny plastic is to scratch.

    Looking forward to the update.

    Quick newb question here lads. Can you use the headset to watch blu-ray movies too, or is it only for videogames?

    @4 Yeah T.G. I’m pretty sure you can. I plug my personal headphones into the DS4 to watch Netflix and movies all the time.
