Out of nowhere yesterday (April 8), Sony gave us out first look at the PS5 controller, the DualSense. With a fairly different design to the previous DualShock of generations past, the DualSense adds in a few new features such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, but not all of it’s intricacies were gone into.
The new Create button has taken the Share button’s place, but we don’t exactly know what the difference between them will be. Similarly, we weren’t sure whether or not the DualSense would include a headphone jack like the DualShock 4. Well, now we know the answer.
Toshimasa Aoki, the product manager at PlayStation, announced on Twitter that the DualSense will indeed have a headphone jack (a feature it has over the recent iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy S20), meaning your current wired headsets will work for the PS5. Keep in mind this only refers to wired headsets, nothing has been confirmed as far as wireless compatibility yet.
Still have an audio jack so you can plug in your own headsets like DS4

With reports that the PS5 might be a pricey console, I for one am happy to not buy a brand new headset and would rather spend that extra money on pimping out my new Dyson Vacuum.
What do you think? Will you be sticking with your current headset? Let us know.
