Health and Safety

Before using the product, carefully read this manual and any manuals for compatible hardware. Retain instructions for future use. Parents or guardians of children should read this manual for safe use. This product has been designed with the highest concern for safety. However, any electrical device, if used improperly, has the potential to cause fire, electrical shock, or personal injury. Observe all warnings, precautions, and instructions. Stop use and disconnect cables immediately if the product functions in an abnormal manner, produces unusual sounds or smells, or becomes too hot to touch.


Radio waves may affect electronic equipment or medical devices (for example, pacemakers), which may cause malfunctions and possible injuries.

  • If you use a pacemaker or other medical device, consult your doctor or the manufacturer of your medical device before using the wireless networking feature (Bluetooth® and wireless LAN).
  • Do not use the wireless networking feature in the following locations:
    • Areas where wireless network use is prohibited, such as in hospitals. Abide by medical institution regulations when using the console on their premises.
    • Areas near fire alarms, automatic doors, and other types of automated equipment.

This product has magnets that may interfere with pacemakers, defibrillators programmable shunt valves, or other medical devices. Do not place this product close to such medical devices or persons who use such medical devices. Consult your doctor before using this product if you use such medical devices.

Permanent hearing loss may occur if the headset or headphones are used at high volume. Set the volume to a safe level. Over time, increasingly loud audio may start to sound normal but can damage your hearing. If you experience ringing or any discomfort in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume, the sooner your hearing could be affected. To protect your hearing:

  • Limit the amount of time you use the headset or headphones at high volume.
  • Avoid raising the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
  • Lower the volume if you can’t hear people speaking near you.

The controller contains a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. Do not handle damaged or leaking lithium-ion batteries. If the built-in battery fluid leaks, stop using the product immediately and contact the appropriate PlayStation customer service helpline which can be found within the accompanying documentation. If the material gets into the eyes, do not rub. Immediately flush the eyes with clean water and seek medical attention.

If the material comes into contact with the skin or clothes, immediately rinse the affected area with clean water and consult your doctor. Do not allow the battery to come into contact with fire or subject it to extreme temperatures such as in direct sunlight, in a vehicle exposed to the sun, or near a heat source. Never attempt to open, crush, heat, or set fire to the controller or the battery. Do not leave the battery charging for a prolonged period when the controller is not in use.

CHOKING HAZARD–Small parts. Keep the product out of the reach of young children. Young children may swallow small parts, may wrap the cables around themselves, which may inflict injury or cause an accident or a malfunction.

Static shock
When using the headset or headphones in particularly dry air conditions, you may sometimes experience a small and quick (static) shock on your ears. This is a result of static electricity accumulated in the body and is not a malfunction of your headset or headphones. This effect could be reduced by wearing clothes made from materials that do not easily generate static shock.

Motion sensor
When using the motion sensor function of the controller be cautious of the following points. If the controller hits a person or object, it may cause accidental injury or damage.

  • Before using the motion sensor function, make sure you have enough space to move around.
  • Firmly grip the controller to prevent it from slipping out of your grasp and causing damage or injury.
  • If using a controller that is connected to the PS5 console with a USB cable, make sure there is enough space for the cable so that the cable will not hit a person or object.
