This will impact PlayStation and Sony in many ways as they will be able to expand their technology and services. It will provide players with a lot more enjoyment from their consoles and the games they will be playing. On the other hand, this acquisition raises the question of whether Audeze will stop working on any other projects or selling to any other companies due to this new deal created between them and Sony.

Even though Audeze has been acquired by Sony, this will not limit them to only providing its resources to Sony. The headphone company has already been made clear during the press release that Audeze will still be able to act as an independent entity. Still, the company will also be able to benefit by working with Sony, broadening its audience, and increasing resources as it advances technology.
