Sony has a history of releasing various accessories for the PlayStation consoles throughout their lifespan. Similarly, the PS5 is no different and has already seen multiple add-ons like customized faceplates and the Pulse 3D Headset.
A new report from reliable leaker Tom Henderson hints at another accessory coming up from the gaming giant. According to the report, Sony is working on wireless earbuds for the PS5.

Sony’s earbuds are called ‘Project Nomad’ and come with an approximate battery life of about 5 hours. Project Nomad will also include a charging case that will make use of the USB-C connection on the PS5 for charging.
The leaker reports that Sony is also working on a new wireless headset called ‘Voyager.’ This headset is said to be similar to the Sony Inzone H7 headset, and both the Nomad and Voyager are targeting an FY2023 release window.
In terms of headsets, PlayStation users already have plenty of first-party options to choose from. The Pulse 3D Wireless headset serves as a budget-friendly option, while the Inzone line-up can cost up to $300 for a more premium experience.
The new earbuds could cater to a new audience that prefers options like the Apple EarPods and Samsung Galaxy Buds. Additionally, the ‘Voyager’ headset could offer a middle ground between Sony’s previous headset offerings.
For users who prefer third-party headsets, nearly every major gaming brand has options to choose from. However, Sony’s ability to fine-tune the headset and earbuds with software support could give these products an additional edge over the competition.
