Sony Details PS5 3D Audio Compatibility with Limitations for Speakers

According to PlayStation’s own Isabelle Tomatis, most headphones will be compatible with the PlayStation 5. You can connect either by plugging it to the DualSense controller via the 3.5mm audio jack or directly to the console via USB. As far as the PS5 3D audio goes, it will not work with built-in TV speakers. However, they are planning to add that capability sometime in the future.

Headphone audio is the current gold standard for 3D Audio on PS5, as Mark Cerny mentioned in his ‘Road to PS5’ talk in March. We’re also in the process of working on virtual surround sound through speakers that are built into TVs. Although TV speaker virtual surround sound won’t be available on launch day for PS5, it’s still a feature we are extremely excited about, and our engineers are hard at work on bringing it to PS5 in the future.

For the games with PS5 3D Audio compatibility, the following is the confirmed, but not limited, list of games to support it:

  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Astro’s Playroom
  • Demon’s Souls
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Horizon Forbidden West
  • Gran Turismo 7

The PlayStation 5 will be launching on 12th November 2020 in selected countries, and 19th November 2020 for the rest of the world.
