The quality of sound on these blow the old model out of the water. Tested the VSS on PS3/Vita/PC/WiiU and it's superb.

The pulse seems to work with everything I test with it. Gives an impact to guns and vehicles in games like Planetside 2. I'm gonna assume it's magic that allows the pulse to know exactly when I expect it to work. It's amazing.

Honestly, I don't know how I've been playing games without them. It's another level of immersion.

VSS doesn't work on anything but ps3. im moving from g930 to these, and that is seriously is disappointing.

Well the first generation ones said they didn't support virutal srround on blu-ray/DVD playback even if it was via PS3. thats something I never understood.. you could do it via games but not video playback.

Update: Sorry, out of stock again. Those went pretty fast.


I had actually purchased from the online Sony Store for $110 (by buying the $100 gift card that came with a free $20 gift card) and just called them to cancel. It was too late to cancel, but they said they'd refund the $30 difference once they charge my card, so it actually works out even better for me since I basically got it (or will get it) for $99.99+tax with a free $20 Sony gift card.

How well does the virtual 7.1 work on the Vita or IOS? Debating either getting these or some nice V-Moda headphones?

It doesn't. The virtual 7.1 only works on the PS3, doesn't even work on a PC.

Fuck it I bought them, I passed the last time and regretted it when they went OOS. Now I just gotta unload my AX 720s. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the info, just ordered some nice sennheisers instead.

Actually it looks like it does work. According to a post on giant bomb it will work on the computer as well you just have to activate it in the W7 settings. If best buy will price match, I will pick a pair up for a little a/b testing.

If I weren't already so happy with my first Sony Pulse, I would be getting this one. Battery life on my Pulse is around 7 hours or more, but I've read that battery life on the Pulse 2 is only around 4-5 hours or so.

Ah, well that is good to know. Sony says they dont work, but the last two pairs I ordered off of Amazon Warehouse have come busted so I havent had the chance to try them. I'm glad this came back around, I was getting tired of checking AWD for stock.

A little more info on this, it seems that it could be computer dependent and some computer sound boards support virtual 7.1 with any headphones. I may still pick up a pair to see how they perform on the vita.
