The PlayStation 5 launched with a range of original PS5 accessories, from the DualSense Wireless Controller to the Pulse 3D Headset and PlayStation Media Remote, but while each of these can enhance your experience in different ways, they're not the only accessories worth picking up. for your new console. Brands like Logitech, Razer, Samsung, and SteelSeries all have quality products that are designed specifically for the PS5 (or will work for backwards compatibility), and now that the PS5 has been on the market for quite some time, you can find a PS5 accessory for just about any specific needs at this time. With that in mind, we've rounded up the best PS5 accessories worth buying so far, from standard controllers and headphones to flight controls, steering wheels, external storage, and more.

DualSense wireless controller

Sony's PS5 DualSense controller is a fantastic upgrade over the PS4's DualShock 4, reshaping the controller to give it a more comfortable, ergonomic shape and more easily visible light bars on either side of the touchpad. Its standout feature is the haptic feedback which, when fully utilized in compatible games, creates immersive vibes that really let you feel what is happening in the game. Adaptive triggers work in tandem with this as well to further enhance PS5 games by offering different levels of resistance on the L2 and R2 buttons to simulate the feeling of, for example, pulling a bowstring. This can also be used to make different weapons, like revolvers, look different when switching between them. Overall, the DualSense is an excellent controller that feels magical when its resources are fully utilized.

PlayStation DualSense Charging Station

Sooner or later, you'll probably want to grab a charging station for your DualSense controller, and this official one from Sony can charge two at once, which means you'll always have a controller ready to go when you need it. It takes a little getting used to, but when you swipe your finger over the controller, you'll hear a slight click and see it light up, letting you know it's plugged in and charging. In terms of convenience, this is easily one of the best PS5 accessories to buy ASAP. Nobody likes to play games with the controller plugged into a charging wire.

Samsung T7 External SSD

While you can get any external hard drive for a lower cost, using an external SSD with your PS5 will give you the fastest storage for PS4 games as well as PS5 games that you don't want to store on the console's internal SSD. Samsung is one of the top brands in the game when it comes to SSDs, and the T7 External SSD is a great choice for expanding your PS5's storage. It has read speeds of up to 1.050MB/second and write speeds of up to 1.000MB/second with USB 3.2 Gen 2 devices (like the PS5).

PlayStation Media Remote

The PlayStation Media Remote is an obvious purchase for those who use their PS5 as their dedicated streaming device for Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Crunchyroll, and other streaming platforms. The DualSense lets you navigate to the PS5's media section and can be used to play, pause and rewind shows, of course, but the PlayStation Media Remote makes it very natural as it's designed like a traditional TV remote. It has a number of convenient features that make it a better choice than the DualSense (or any other controller) for streaming, including quick access buttons for Disney+, Netflix, Spotify and YouTube that will quickly open these apps for you even if your TV is on. off. It also has dedicated media playback controls and can adjust your TV's volume and power settings with the built-in IR transmitter.

Pulse 3D wireless headset

Surprisingly, the PS5's original headphone option, the Pulse 3D, is on the more affordable end of the spectrum for quality headphones; however, this is combined with a construction that looks somewhat flimsy, cheap, and easy to break. On the other hand, it delivers rich audio using Sony's proprietary Tempest 3D AudioTech, which really brings the surrounding environments alive in PS5 games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, allowing you to hear subtle sounds and get a better directional sense of that is around you. It also supports wireless and wired connectivity for not only PS5, but PS4, PC and Mac as well, with a battery life of up to 12 hours. Overall, it's still one of the best PS5 headphones to buy.

Razer BlackShark V2 Pro

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is our dominant choice for the best PS5 headset, combining extreme comfort with excellent audio quality, a low latency connection and a large detachable microphone with focused voice pickup. It can connect wirelessly through a 2,4GHz connection, as well as wired through any 3,5mm port. You can also take advantage of THX Spatial Audio if you use it for PC gaming.

SteelSeries Arctis 7P

SteelSeries headsets have been very popular for years, and the Arctis 7P is their next-gen headset designed specifically for PS5, although we like it for its versatility, as you can also use it with PS4, PC, Android, and Nintendo Switch thanks to an included USB-C dongle. Featuring 2,4GHz wireless audio and a low latency connection, the Arctis 7P also perfectly matches the PS3's 5D audio technology with superb sound quality for such a versatile headset. Like the BlackShark V2 Pro, it's also a more durable and comfortable option than the Pulse 3D, with a lightweight steel frame and elastic ski goggle strap for an adjustable fit. It also features a retractable two-way microphone for clear voice capture and a 24-hour battery to last through all-day gaming sessions.

PlayStation HD Camera

For those planning to stream their PS5 games on Twitch or YouTube, the PlayStation HD camera is an essential accessory that will make the whole process easier. Featuring 1080p capture, the PlayStation HD camera allows you to record yourself and your gameplay using the DualSense share button, and using the PS5's built-in background removal tools, you can add yourself to game videos while playing. transmission in picture-in-picture mode. You can crop the background or even remove it completely if you have a green screen.

Razer Raion Fightpad

The Razer Raion has been one of our picks for the best PS4 controllers, and it still works great for playing backwards compatible PS4 games on PS5. While its layout might look odd, the Razer Raion is optimized for fighting games and its six-button layout resembles what you'd find in an arcade. It has a fantastic, clickable D-pad and is light enough to hold comfortably in one hand, allowing you to play through the rows of buttons piano-style. However, it also has digital buttons for each DualShock 4's back button and trigger if you prefer to use it that way. Also convenient is the fact that you don't have to switch between Raion and a more feature-rich controller for things like character customization, as it lets you map the d-pad to the left and right sticks. While the Razer Raion isn't for most PlayStation games and certainly not for every type of gamer, for fighting game fans it's a great buy.

Victrix Pro FS Arcade Fight Stick

The Victrix Pro FS is expensive, but for the most dedicated fighting game fans, it's worth every penny and is PS5 compatible. The Victrix Pro FS has a premium construction made from durable aluminum and authentic Sanwa Denshi parts, its buttons are satisfyingly clickable and the joystick is equally satisfying to use and precise in its movements. In addition to all the essential fight controller buttons, it has a number of additional features, including three programmable buttons, customizable audio, lighting adjustments, and an easy-access port for switching components. It's also a travel controller with a detachable joystick, a plastic organizer for wrapping cables and handles for carrying. Costing as much as a console, the Victrix Pro FS isn't for everyone, but if you're seriously considering getting a better PS5 fighting game experience and playing competitively, this is an excellent investment.

Logitech G923 racing wheel and pedals

As with fighting games, you can certainly use your regular old DualSense with racing games, but if you're passionate about the genre and want a more realistic experience with games like Gran Turismo Sport and Assetto Corsa Competizione, a racing wheel and a set of pedals are designed just for that. Released in August 2020, Logitech's next-generation racing wheel, the G923, has everything you need for the ultimate PS5 racing experience. Its TrueForce technology offers state-of-the-art force feedback with a physics engine that is directly connected to the steering wheel for greater responsiveness. Essentially, the wheel syncs with your gameplay to deliver a more immersive and realistic experience. The downside is that, at the moment, TrueForce is only compatible with a few games: Grid, Assetto Corsa Competizione, iRacing, Gran Turismo Sport, Showrunner and Dirt Rally 2.0.

The Logitech G923 also features a programmable dual-clutch launch assistant to get you off the starting line faster, a progressive spring brake to simulate a pressure-sensitive braking system, a built-in rev indicator that can show you when you're in limit and a full set of customization options through Logitech's G Hub software.

Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS 4

Most flight devices are designed for PC, but with flight simulators having a little resurgence recently thanks to games like Star Wars Squadrons and Microsoft Flight Simulator, we're starting to see more console options. The official PlayStation-licensed Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS 4 is an option that is available for purchase. It will work great with games like Star Wars Squadrons and Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.

A great entry-level flight controller for those just starting to dive into the flight simulator genre, the T.Flight HOTAS 4 features adjustable joystick resistance, a removable throttle, and a dual rudder system that operates by turning the handle with a integrated locking system or by the progressive tilt lever. The flight system has five axes, 12 action buttons, a quick trigger and a multi-directional button for navigation/panning.
