Answered by Antonio Sutton

To change the audio output on your PS5, you can follow these steps:

1. First, navigate to the Settings menu on your PS5. You can find it by selecting the gear icon in the top right corner of the home screen.

2. Once you’re in the Settings menu, scroll down and select the “Sound” option. This will open up the sound settings for your PS5.

3. Within the Sound settings, you’ll see an option for “Audio Output.” Select this option to access the audio output settings.

4. Now, you will see a list of available audio output devices. If you have a gaming headset connected to your PS5, it should appear in this list. Look for the name of your headset and select it as the desired output device.

5. After selecting your headset as the output device, you may have the option to adjust additional settings related to the audio output. This can include options such as adjusting the volume level, enabling or disabling surround sound, or customizing equalizer settings.

6. Once you have made any desired adjustments, you can exit the settings menu and start enjoying your gaming experience with the updated audio output through your headset.

It’s worth mentioning that the specific options and settings available may vary depending on the model of your gaming headset and any additional features it offers. It’s always a good idea to consult the user manual or manufacturer’s website for your headset if you have any specific questions or need further assistance with adjusting the audio output settings.

In my personal experience, I’ve found that adjusting the audio output on my PS5 has been a straightforward process. I often switch between using my gaming headset and the TV speakers, depending on the situation and preferences. Being able to easily change the audio output device allows me to enjoy immersive sound while gaming or switch to regular TV audio when I want to watch videos or stream content.

The ability to adjust the audio output on the PS5 provides flexibility and customization options to enhance your gaming experience. Whether you prefer using a gaming headset, external speakers, or the TV’s built-in audio, the PS5’s sound settings make it easy to switch between different audio output devices.
