PlayStation 4 owners can buy a Metal Gear Solid V Diamond Dogs Headset by Hori

A new Metal Gear Solid V themed item is available on Amazon Japan. This time it’s a PlayStation 4 headset made by Hori.


Just like the special edition Diamond Dogs PlayStation 4, the design is inspired by Snake’s bionic arm, using the same red and gold color scheme and ‘caution’ text. It also features a Diamond Dogs logo and banner.

The headset will be released on the same day as the game in Japan: September 2nd 2015, and can be purchased for a price of 7538 yen (about $63 USD or €60). To visit the product page on Amazon, follow this link.

Here is some additional information taken from Play-Asia:

Headphone Specs:

Output Sound Pressure Level: 119±3db1kHz

Microphone Specs:

Inspired by both the Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Custom PS4 Console as well as Snake’s prosthetic arm seen both in the game as well as in the Collector’s Edition as a premium, Hori will be releasing a Stereo headphone with a matching theme as the pièce de résistance! 

Based off of Hori’s Stereo Headset 4 HG for the PlayStation 4, this edition re-skins an already solid choice for console gaming headphones and comes in red, black, and gold trim with a Diamond Dogs logo on the earpiece. The unidirectional microphone can be adjusted lengthwise, and is equipped with noise cancelation, blocking ambient sounds. There is also a conveniently placed volume control attachment on the cable that connects to the DualShock 4 via a 3.5mm jack plug. 

Offering a flat should signature, these headphones will faithfully recreate the sounds and music of the game, without altering any EQ levels, especially when game audio is now at a level akin to Hollywood Movie mixes and masters!

Releasing on September 2nd – the same date of the Japanese launch for MGSV: The Phantom Pain, secure yours now!

Extremely Limited: If you’re interested, please place your pre-orders as soon as possible. Only for the PlayStation®4

    Is it going to be available in the US?

    • flying_fox

      It’s not uncommon for Hori products to be released outside of Japan. Though in this case, I have no idea if it will.

    • PrinceHeir

      Play-Asia is gonna carry it(though it will be sold out soon)

      • AV

        Thanks, already ordered it, hopefully the wait feels shorter than it has been

        • Edward Wokhands

          We have some great games coming that will make 4 months go very quickly. Mario Kart 8 DLC (new tracks, characters and karts AND 200CC MODE!!!) and The Witcher 3!

          • AV

            Yeah!! The Witcher is gonna be amazing, and the free DLC thing honestly makes me want it even more

  • Gatsu

    That is pretty cool. I had no idea they do a headset too.

  • Silverius

    No folding capabilities even for the mic is a total deal breaker.

    • AV

      Looks like a concept, hopefully they’ll change it or it’ll be removable

  • Shporet

    I’m totally ok with having snake’s mechanical arm on my desk but this is too much…

  • Edward Wokhands

    How many things am I going to have to buy? -_- This damn game series is the only one I buy stuff like this for and it’s also the series that has the most merchandise.

  • Edward Wokhands

    Off topic but: Anyone got any interesting E3 predictions for Phantom Pain? I’ve been wondering whether they’ll release new info or just wait until release now. I’m expecting maybe a trailer but nothing more really.

    • Gatsu

      Nothing interesting here. But the usual stuff, I hope we get to see at least a trailer :). It don’t need to be a long one, just few couple minutes is good enough for me. I wonder if we get to see more of MB multiplayer in E3.

      Haven’t seen any time schedule of it yet, like do Konami hold some 1h conference or just a quick presentation on the stage (aka a trailer or something like it).

      • Edward Wokhands

        We still haven’t seen the trailer that he teased a while back now (it was late last year wasn’t it? Or was it January?) unless he was making the release date trailer in that picture? I’m torn, I don’t want to see anything that could potentially spoil the game but another part of me definitely wants to see something new. Hopefully if he makes a trailer it’ll contain nothing major, just a new song and a few teases.

        I just hope the Konami debacle doesn’t change what he’s intending to show, as in I hope he doesn’t show more than he would have if this hadn’t have gone down in hopes of appeasing any angry fans. I hope he realizes that almost everybody knows he hasn’t done anything. I don’t like that people were threatening to not buy the game because his name was taken off. I said this in another comment but if his name stays off it we should make a print kit. Some sort of custom game cover that we can print out at home. Just an image file with his name in BIG white lettering. Just to show that we support Kojima but not Konami, because I get the feeling he thinks people are mad at him which is why he asked Akio Otsuka to tell people to still buy the game. So I hope he doesn’t over compensate if he’s at E3. Hopefully everything pans out how it would have otherwise. (Except for an anti-Konami easter egg hidden somewhere in TPP >=D)

        • Gatsu

          Yes we still haven’t seen that “mixing” thing he posted months ago imo. Possibly the trailer. It’s the same with me, a part of me would also like to see lots of new things from the game, but also don’t wanna get spoiled too much :).

          Wait a sec… what the hell was I saying in my other reply xD ? A trailer or just seeing Kojima in E3 IS interesting ;D. The stuff I wanna see most there :O !

          Lets hope the Konami mess indeed doesn’t change what he wanna show.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I just realized, don’t know why I forgot, but maybe we’ll see Silent Hills!

          • Gatsu

            Oh god…I hope so ;(. But I wonder would SH be the same if Kojima really isn’t involved with it anymore. And if he’s not doing it, is Del Toro either.

            It would be nice to hear some more info about all this, be it in E3 or not. Konami told they’ll still do it though, if I remember correctly :).

            Anyway, I’d love to see Silent Hills. SH, TPP and FFXV my most anticipated trio in video game history.

          • Edward Wokhands

            How the hell did I forget about FF15? Have you played the demo? Holy crap what an amazing game. I think it will go down as a classic alongside 6, 7, 8 and 9. It looks like it has a sense of humor which is what 13 was missing and has a real sense of adventure which 13 was missing too. I can’t wait to see FF15 now! I was thinking I only had TPP to look forward to. I just hope it doesn’t get delayed although I’m kind of expecting it to. We’ve already lost Zelda and Uncharted 4 this year. 🙁

            We also have Mario Kart 8 DLC THIS WEEK!!! Nintendo actually brought the release date forward for it. So that’ll make those 4 months move a lot quicker even if we don’t get MGS at E3.

            With Silent Hills I don’t think Konami are stupid enough to not have Kojima’s involvement. I think that’s what “he’s a freelance/contractor” means. Even if he doesn’t work FOR them I think they’ll still employ him temporarily. If they don’t then they must have idiots making their decisions because most people are planning on buying it only for him. He already created a ridiculous amount of excitement and interest just from P.T. There have been recent Silent Hill games and look at how much attention they got. They got a bit but it was all negative. Even the HD remasters were a bit of a mess, removing the fog from SH2? Really? -_- It took Kojima to refresh the series.

          • Gatsu

            Yes I played it, fantastic FF 15 demo :).

            I hope you’re right about SH and Kojima, perhaps he still is gonna do it. PT created huge amount of hype for SH for a good reason, because it’s freaking awesome. Not every people can do horror game like that even if being only a teaser. They can’t be so foolish to cancel it or change the dudes developing SH.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, you’re right. I went into P.T. with low expectations. The best horror games I’d played until then were still Resident Evil Remake for Gamecube and Silent Hill 1, 2 and 3 (and maybe 4) I was thinking “how scary can it be? It’s just a demo too…” the answer was “so scary that even though it’s the middle of the day, you’ll still crap all over your home from fear.” That answer was accurate.

    • Javier

      I think they just have to show gameplay. Maybe mother base construction. A mission where you collect a tape. And something of mgo3. Nothing more. I don’t want more trailers.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Yeah, motherbase construction would be nice to see and would basically be spoiler free. I wouldn’t mind if they didn’t turn up to E3 actually. 4 months really isn’t that long. I mean it feels like a week ago that we were saying “damn! Six months?!?!?!?!” I honestly didn’t even realize that 2 months had passed since the date announcement. The problem is that I don’t want to watch anything new but if they show something I won’t even pretend that I’ll try to resist.

        Actually the best thing they could do is show MGO on it’s own. There’s no chance of spoiling anything that way.

        • Javier

          august will be difficult

        • Gatsu

          Months go really fast in the end even if next 4 months feel long at first :).

          Got my summer vacation confirmed today for late August lol ooh yeah, now just gotta chill and then get ready for my TPP journey XD. 😛

          • Edward Wokhands

            As long as you’re busy the time will pass quickly. Do you feel like 2 months have passed since the release date was announced? I don’t. Just find a few awesome 3DS games to play over your vacation and try to forget about TPP (I know, impossible) and before we know it it’ll be mid August. THAT is when time will start to pass slowly.

  • Alex

    Hello fellow MGS brothers, I got to meet Troy Baker recently at a convention.

    I asked him what he thought of the Kojima/Konami situation. He said he doesn’t know what to think, he doesn’t know anything about it, & that it all just seems so weird. While talking about the articles, he mentioned he doesn’t trust IGN (in general, though kinda irrelevant since it was GameSpot). I don’t think he’s looked into it as much as say, us, but you can’t blame him either with working on Uncharted 4 and no doubt a bunch of other games. Without any further question tho, he went on about how great the game’s gonna be, that its way too far complete for anything about it to change, and that Kojima is his Big Boss (a line he stole from Kiefer Sutherland lol). He will follow him wherever he goes just like us. He talked about a lot of different things just out of 1 little question, I wish I had it recorded for YouTube and the MGS community. However, I did get this!

    P.S. I was triple cross-playing 3 stealth franchises, Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs and MGS. I had Desmond’s attire with Aiden’s cap/mask, and the iDroid as my smartphone lol.

    • Nice, thanks for the info!

      • Alex

        Forgot to add, I also got these signed 🙂

    • Gatsu

      That’s awesome :D! Congrats for meeting Troy 🙂 !

    • Chris Jackson

      Troy is the perfect Ocelot between MGS3 and MGS1! Can’t wait! Jealousy arises!

      • Alex

        Yes he is!

    • Shalashaska

      A.w.e.s.o.m.e.J.ea.l.o.u.s.I n.c.o.m.i.n.g.R.e.c.e.i.v.i.n.g.S.e.n.d.i.n.g.t.h.r.o.u.g.h. xD Seriously, budd… Awesome. Nice Cosplay, too. That really looks good (Y)
      I just have to say.. this guy is ALL sorts of talented. No one would ever look at him and think he has a 100 voices but the man is amazing.

      • Alex

        Thanks budd!
        And yes, he is easily my favorite actor (not just voice actor) in gaming! I was crazy excited.

    • Alex

      Some more cool pics

      • Gatsu

        Woah O_o…Hulk Hogan was there too :O!? Your pose look badass in that pic ;).

        • Alex

          Yep lol, thx.
          Lou Ferrigno was there too, but I only had so much money.
          This was MegaCon in Orlando btw. I drove 3 hours there & back, mainly for Troy Baker.

          • glitchbomb

            Poor Lou. I see him near the same area at every SDComic Con and I rarely see anyone in line @ his booth.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Hey, what do you mean by he doesn’t trust IGN? Did they do something? (I never visit there so maybe I missed something.)

      One thing I did notice was during his IGN interview the two guys interviewing him seemed really impolite and rude. They were just looking away from him and in general didn’t seem interested at all in what he was saying. Maybe that was just me though. One guy was staring at a computer screen and the other kept glancing at the screen too like he was more interested in tweets than a real, talented artist sitting in front of him. Do you know why he said he doesn’t trust IGN in particular? I’m really interested.

      • Alex

        I haven’t seen that interview, but maybe it had something to do with it. The first thing that jumps to my mind with IGN is like the 10 times (exaggerated number) they reported The Last Guardian being cancelled, just for them to back-pedal when a Sony exec goes “haha no”. I think Troy just meant that like many others, he doesn’t trust IGN when it comes to reporting unconfirmed rumors, even though in this case it was GameSpot that broke the news followed by everyone else reporting on what they said. Troy Baker has more a confusion of the whole scenario rather than Konami bloodlust like the rest of us lol.

        • Edward Wokhands

          Yeah, I was getting annoyed FOR him. He was so, so revealing and open and intelligent and enthusiastic. The interviewers looked annoyed or bored or something. Just sitting there looking away at Twitter every 30 seconds. It was only a good interview because Troy was there. Anyone with a decent job can give a good interview if the interviewer is good enough. But in that case they were TERRIBLE and if I was Troy I’d never go back. Then again I missed a bit of it so I might be wrong.

          I see what you’re saying, most game sites do that now don’t they? Try to get a controversial rumor before everyone else, not because it’s good to tell the public or interesting but for, you guessed it, the ad revenue. That leads to shallow stories and lies. They’d rather report what they KNOW is in 90% probability a lie and take it back later than just wait and see. Even sites I used to respect like Polygon and Eurogamer are like that (in fact I see Polygon as WAY, WAY, WAY worse than IGN right now. They’re the lowest of the low in the gaming media. They’ll happily ruin lives for ad revenue) and it’s just depressing. I avoid pretty much every official gaming site now except for Gametrailers (they’re very honest and up front about everything they do) and obviously this site.

          I imagine if this is all planned in some way (I think there’s more to the Konami Kojima thing than we’ve been told) they’d keep it secret from almost everyone. By the way I’m SO, SO jealous of your signed Last Of Us!!! Damn!!!

          • Alex

            Haha thanks.
            Regarding websites, even if IGN is not one of the worst offenders, I think they just have one of the biggest reputations for it among gamers, but also probably because its one of if not the most popular gaming website.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, when you’re number one people start trying to bring you down even if you do nothing wrong. Hence how the industry treats Nintendo. :p (not comparing IGN to Nintendo by the way. ¬_¬ (My bias always shows when Nintendo walk in the room))

      What does this have to do with Diamond Dog headphones?

  • PrinceHeir

    Looks ace 🙂

  • kirtanloorii

    They are going to make more money on merchandise than the actual game.

  • PrinceHeir

    Play-Asia is carrying it if you can’t preorder on Amazon JPN for $54.99(Gonna be 60+ for tax and shipping)

      Does PlayAsia ship outside their continent?

      • Yes.

  • FOX

    Fucking Konami! Man i hate not having any news or photo of the process of the game from Kojima. İm not interested in any of theese accessories (not complaining) but i used to enjoy getting news and photos from Kojima. The way this goes,i doubt if we will get anything on E3. Konami acts like they want to screw the product they spent tons of money on

    • flying_fox

      Well, didn’t Konami shamelessly say that Kojima will have “limited opportunities” to promote the game? But that doesn’t mean the game won’t be at E3. I think they’re not screwing the product, they’re simply… You know… “Taking it back”.

      • Edward Wokhands

        It’s such a weird, out of touch move. What good do they think they’re doing by removing his name? It seems like he annoyed some petty asshole who has the last say on things. I just hope that all of this is part of a meta-narrative on the game which is why we had to remove Kojima games from Ground Zeroes in the Deja-Vu mission. (Why more people aren’t talking about this is beyond me. Kojima obviously knew this was going to happen which either means it wasn’t as sudden as it seemed or it was planned and is part of the promotion somehow. (I think it’s more likely that he knew his name would be removed in advance so he put that in the game.))

        • flying_fox

          Yes he obviously knew something was up. As early as PW, I would say. Because PW’s story is also suspiciously foreshadowing of all this (small team builds a “Metal Gear” with the support of a much larger group; the big group wants to reclaim the Metal Gear at the end of its development; not to mention what finally happens in GZ).
