The 10 Best PlayStation 5 Accessories of 2022

SteelSeries Arctis 7P resting on PlayStation 5

Whether you’re looking for an extra controller, some quality gaming headphones, or some other accessories that are a little further out—say, an external hard drive or a custom skin—we found all of the best PlayStation 5 accessories for you.

The Controller: DualSense

Sony

Pros

  • Comfortable design
  • Useful features
  • Improved haptic feedback

Cons

  • Pricey

The next step from the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 is a pretty significant difference visually, but once you get past that outside layer, you’ll see the PS5 controller is very similar at heart. The main changes made are the new enhanced haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that better sense pressure levels, the “Create” button for capturing screenshots and videos, and a USB-C port for charging.

Are those major new features? No, but they’re great improvements all the same and, combined with the new look, it gives this controller a fresh feel compared to Sony’s past controllers.

A Charging Station: DualSense Charging Station

Pros

  • Match PS5's style
  • Conveniently charge controller

Cons

  • Can only hold two

Speaking of controllers, you’re going to need to keep them charged. Sony’s official charging station does that while maintaining the overall style of the console and controller. All you need to do is plug this station into your PlayStation 5, then click up to two controllers onto it. Nothing more you could need out of a charging station.

A Media Remote: Sony PS5 Media Remote

Pros

  • Easier navigation for streaming services
  • Affordable
  • Simple design

Cons

  • Limited shortcut buttons

With how many streaming apps are available on modern consoles (or if you use the PS5 as a Blu-Ray player), having a dedicated remote for navigation makes a lot of sense, which is exactly why Sony’s PlayStation 5 media remote is a must-have. This simple remote has all the buttons you’d expect from a standard streaming device remote, plus some shortcut keys for multiple streaming apps like Netflix, Spotify, YouTube, and Disney+. The only thing you really need to be aware of is that it runs off of AA batteries, so you will need to keep some stocked up.

A Gaming Headset: SteelSeries Arctis 7P Wireless

SteelSeries

Pros

  • Great for online multiplayer
  • Impressive microphone
  • Stylish

Cons

  • Not as good for singleplayer games

Voice communication is a vital part of most online games, and this wireless headset from SteelSeries is great for that. The build is comfortable and uses breathable materials, the colors match the console perfectly, and it has 24 hours of battery life, so a dead battery should rarely be an issue. You can mix the game sound or voice chat audio on the fly with the left earcup’s dial, and the microphone sounds excellent for a wireless headset.

The USB-C dongle can also be used with other compatible devices, so this headset doesn’t have to be locked down to the PlayStation 5 all the time.

A Wireless Headset

An Immersive Headset: Sony Pulse 3D

Pros

  • Built to work with PS5's 3D audio
  • Stylish
  • Comfortable design

Cons

  • Microphone is weak

Online multiplayer isn’t the only scenario in which you’ll want to use a headset. If you’re looking for something more aimed at single-player games, the Pulse 3D headset is a great pick. Directly from Sony, these headphones are designed with the PS5’s 3D audio in mind, and they truly immerse you in whatever grand adventure you’re playing. It also includes dual noise-canceling microphones, but it’s not as good for multiplayer voice comms as other headsets.

The over-ear headset is wireless, of course, and its rechargeable battery lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge. It’s available in either White or Midnight Black.

Pros

  • Allows clips to have your webcam feed included
  • Fits PS5's style
  • Useful capture tools

Cons

  • Only 1080p

When you save a clip of a game, wouldn’t it be enhanced by seeing your reaction as well? With this camera from Sony, that’s exactly what you’ll be able to create. At the end of the day, this is just a cool-looking 1080p camera, but it does have some neat features thrown in. The built-in stand is designed to be placed on top of a TV; it even has background removal with or without a green screen (but having a green screen will make the effect more convincing). It’s tied in with the DualSense’s Create button—when you press the Create button to save a clip, you can configure it to enable the camera as well.

More Storage: WD_BLACK SSD

Western Digital

Pros

  • Portable
  • Reasonably fast
  • High storage capacity

Cons

  • Won't be able to use it for more intensive games that rely on the PS5's fast internal storage.

If you have the digital-only PlayStation 5, you’re going to need more storage eventually. The tricky thing is that storage speed has become essential to the PlayStation 5, as it uses advanced NVMe storage drives to do all sorts of loading magic in games. Fortunately, an external drive can still be useful for extra storage, even if it won’t be quite as fast.

This plug-in SSD from Western Digital still does a good job, though—reporting speeds of up to 2,000 MB/s—it can store data like videos and keep less intensive games on it. The 825GB of storage in the console can be run through pretty quickly by large modern games, so having this as a supplementary drive is a good idea. You can choose to get this with anywhere from 500GB to 4TB, so there’s plenty of room for expansion. Alternatively, you can pick up a standard external HDD if you’re just looking for raw storage and don’t mind slower performance—it’ll be cheaper.

Better Storage: Samsung 980 Pro

Pros

  • More super-fast storage
  • Works in the PS5
  • Higher storage capacity

Cons

  • Can be difficult to install

While external drives are great and all, they won’t keep up with the PS5’s internal storage—fortunately, you can replace or upgrade that now as well. Thanks to a fairly recent firmware update, you can finally install third-party M.2 drives inside the PS5, albeit with some particular requirements. We won’t go over all that here, though, because there’s already a drive that’s been tested for optimum compatibility with the PS5, offers up to 2TB of storage, and meets all of Sony’s requirements: the Samsung 980 Pro.

Not only can this drive offer more storage than the 825GB the PS5 comes with, but it’s also proven to work faster than the PS5’s default drive. That means getting this is a storage upgrade, and a slight performance boost rolled into one. Installing the drive can be a bit tricky, but Sony provides instructions on how. If you are going to do this, though, just know you’ll need to pick up a heatsink as well to help cool the drive.

Personalize Everything: dbrand Skins

Pros

  • Lots of options for customization
  • Offers skins for both controller and console
  • Looks cool

Cons

  • Can be time-consuming to install

Who doesn’t love personalizing their tech? When it comes to adding some to your devices, few things are simpler and more effective than adhesive skins. dbrand offers a wide selection of different colors and materials for you to choose from. You can even make different choices for every side of the console. dbrand has skins available for both the standard and digital versions of the PlayStation 5 alongside the DualSense controllers.

On top of that, dbrand also recently started selling the “legally distinct enough to not be sued again” Darkplates 2.0. These are physical plates that can replace the white ones the PS5 comes with for a new style while also offering better ventilation and RGB lighting.

For Intense Racing: Logitech G923

Pros

  • Satisfying pedals
  • Padded wheel
  • More immersive controller

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Takes up a lot of space

One of the first games announced for the PlayStation 5 was Grans Turismo 7Sony’s realistic driving simulator. And with a game like that available, it only makes sense for a great steering wheel to be released for the console as well. The G923 features premium build quality, intense force-feedback, a dedicated six-speed shifter, and a set of pedals. It will be a bit difficult to find a good place to set it up, but for hardcore racing fans, the added immersion from this controller will undoubtedly be worth it.
