Officially speaking, no, which is somewhat jarring with what you'd expect from a new console, but ultimately not the end of the world.

Let's face it, we'd take 120hz at 4K and PS5 exclusives over Bluetooth connectivity any day!

However, the good news is that, much like with PS5 ultrawide support, there are ways around this and certain hacks you can do to connect your Bluetooth headphones to your console.

How To Connect Bluetooth Headphones To PS5

There's a quick fix to this and it involves buying any of the best Bluetooth transmitters on the market today.

These work by simply plugging into a device and allowing you to connect to it via Bluetooth.

They come with different adapters themselves, making them able to fit into USB-C, USB-A, or even 3.5 mm audio jack ports. With PS5, you'll want to go for one that can be used with a USB-C port or USB-A port.

Once that's in, follow the instructions, pair your headphones and then you should be able to use Bluetooth with Ps5.

What Bluetooth Headphones Work With PS5?
