The next system software update for the PlayStation 4, update 1.60, will arrive "late tonight," adding support for existing wireless headsets as well as general stability improvements, Sony announced.

Support for both the Pulse and Pulse Elite Edition headsets, offering 7.1 surround sound, will be added tonight in the update.

Additionally, Sony revealed a new PlayStation-developed headset, the Gold Wireless Headset (seen in the video above), which boasts 7.1 virtual surround sound, a hidden noise canceling microphone and custom modes made to "enhance your favorite games." The headset is compatible with PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita (via cable) and PC, with a battery reported to last for eight hours of gameplay, priced at $99.99.

All aforementioned headsets will be compatible with the recently revealed Headset Companion App, slated to launch sometime this month on the PlayStation Store, free of cost. Through it, players will have the ability to download exclusive sounds tailored by developers for their games. According to Sony, Infamous: Second Son will be one of the first titles to support this feature.
