The PlayStation Headset Companion App has received a 2.01 update. The new patch fixes several issues with the PlayStation Headsets.
The most notable of the changes is that the right and left ear cup imbalance, which is caused by using the “My Mode” custom audio profiles has been addressed. Furthermore, the occasional audio signal drop when using the custom Watch Dogs 2 audio mode has been repaired as well. Last but not least, version 2.01 also features unspecified minor bug fixes.
For the uninformed, the Headset Companion App can be downloaded for free from the PlayStation Store. The application is used to change the audio settings for the PlayStation Pulse Elite, PlayStation Gold, PlayStation Silver as well as the recently released PlayStation Platinum Gaming Headsets. All four of these products take advantage of the 7.1 Virtual Surround feature. The app also includes custom audio made just for specific games such as The Last Guardian and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
The aforementioned PlayStation Platinum was recently released. In addition to the aforementioned 7.1 VSS, the product also uses 3D Audio to provide an even greater sense of spatial awareness. If you are interested, you can purchase the PlayStation Platinum Gaming Headset with this link on Amazon.
