The best sound
PlayStation Gold Wireless
These headphones support 7.1 surround sound, so you’ll never miss a thing. They also have an internal noise-canceling microphone to make sure your friends can always clearly hear what you’re saying when you play together. If you prefer a wired setup, these headphones rock a 3.5mm headphone jack, which means you do have the ability to plug them in physically.

PSVR Aim Controller
$60 at Amazon
While it offers a much better experience for shooter games, it is only supported with the following games: Arizona Sunshine, Bravo Team, ChromaGun, Dick Wilde, DOOM: VFR, Evasion, Farpoint, Firewall Zero Hour, Rom: Extraction, Special Delivery, The Brookhaven Institute, and Unearthing Mars 2. If you don’t have any of these games, with no intentions of owning them, don’t get the Aim controller.

Keeping your lenses protected is important, especially if you wear glasses.

That’s where the products like the protection lenses and sanitary masks come in. Whether you’re saving your lenses from the devastation of a scratch by glasses, or making sure your snotty nephew doesn’t get you sick, cleaning products are endlessly useful (and cheap!).
I bet you’re curious about my suggestions of a clamp light and a green LED bulb, right? Long story short, your PlayStation VR camera tracks your movements by the lights on your headset and your Move controllers. The camera will scan your room and choose a color for your Move controllers to display in order to combat the lights and colors around your room. This is why your Move controllers light up differently in different rooms!
So, if you turn off all your lights, block out the sun, and turn on a green LED bulb, your PlayStation camera will only have to compete against the green. This prevents it from having to also register posters, wall paint, carpet color, and so forth. The easier you make it for your console to process information, the better it will work.
