Listening in your bubble: combining the PS5 or PS4 with your headphones to enjoy content

    How can you enjoy a streaming service without disturbing other people in the room if your TV doesn’t support Bluetooth headphones? If you are the owner of a PS5 or PS4 console, there is an easy workaround available. 

    Although you probably use the audio jack on the PlayStation controller mainly for gaming, you can also use it to listen to the other apps and media services available on the PS4 and PS5. In addition, you can plug in any stereo headphones equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack, like the WH-1000XM4. 

    Connect your headphones to the controller with an audio cable, and the sound played on the console will be transferred via the controller. In other words, you can watch all the streaming services available on the PS4 and PS5 via your headphones while leaving the controller right next to you.
