A standalone PlayStation Link USB Adapter is also going on sale soon. Come December 6, you will be able to purchase this adapter on its own if you want, but one is included already with your purchase of the Pulse Elite or Pulse Explore.

Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore connect directly with PlayStation Portal by leveraging this new wireless audio technology, PlayStation Link. This innovation delivers low latency, lossless audio and easy switching between multiple PlayStation Link hosts such as PS5 with the USB adapter and PlayStation Portal.(...)

Pulse Elite and Pulse Explore can simultaneously connect to a PlayStation Link supported device (PS5, PC, Mac, or PlayStation Portal) and a Bluetooth supported device. For example, Pulse Explore can be connected to PS5 (via the USB adapter) using PlayStation Link and also to a mobile phone through Bluetooth at the same time. While playing on PS5, gamers can instantly answer a call and hear it through the same Pulse Explore earbuds.
As for Sony's handheld streaming device, PlayStation Portal, that will be out on November 15, 2023. Pre-orders for PlayStation Portal are currently live with a retail price of $199.99.
