In a significant leap towards immersive gaming, Sony’s PlayStation 5 (PS5) console has introduced a feature known as 3D audio. This technology enhances the gaming experience by providing a three-dimensional sound effect, making gamers feel as if they are in the middle of the action. Here’s an in-depth guide on how to set up 3D audio on your PS5 console.


Step 1: Connect Your Headphones

The first step is to connect your headphones to the PS5 console. You can do this by plugging them into the 3.5mm headphone jack on the controller or connecting them via Bluetooth in the settings menu. It’s important to note that the quality of 3D audio can vary depending on the headphones used, so it’s recommended to use high-quality headphones for the best experience.

Step 2: Enable 3D Audio

  1. From the PS5 home screen, go to Settings.
  2. Scroll down and select Sound.
  3. In the Sound menu, select Audio Output.
  4. Under the Headphones section, you will find the Enable 3D Audio option. Toggle this setting on.

Step 3: Adjust the 3D Audio Profile

The PS5 allows you to adjust the 3D audio profile to match your personal preference.

  1. In the same Audio Output menu, scroll down to find the Adjust 3D Audio Profile option.
  2. Here, you will find five levels of audio height. Test each level and choose the one that sounds best to you.

Step 4: Test 3D Audio

Now that you’ve set up 3D audio, it’s time to test it out. Load up a game that supports 3D audio, put on your headphones, and immerse yourself in the game’s environment. You should notice a significant difference in the audio quality and spatial awareness.


Setting up 3D audio on your PS5 console is a straightforward process that can greatly enhance your gaming experience. By following these steps, you can enjoy a more immersive audio experience that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the action.

Remember, not all games support 3D audio, so be sure to check the game’s audio settings or look for information online about whether your game supports this feature.
