While the PlayStation VR does come with a pair of in-ear earphones, games are much more immersive with a dedicated headset. And chances are, you own a USB one. After all, USB headsets process sound through their sound system, so their audio is clearer and crisper. Most of them are also built with surround sound.
Both the PS4 and PS5 support USB headsets—but is this case the same for the PSVR?
Does the PSVR support USB headsets?
Unfortunately, you can’t use your USB headset on the PSVR. VR games are processed in the headset itself, as opposed to the console, and the PSVR isn’t built with a USB port. You can use any pair of wired headphones instead, as long as they have a 3.5mm jack.
