As is pretty much the case with all gaming controllers, the Sony PS5 DualSense controller comes with vibration built into it. This is designed to help provide more haptic feedback when gaming and helps make the gaming experience a bit more immersive. It can also be used to give players notifications like when they’re being hit, they’re low on health, and so on.

However, it turns out that the PS5 DualSense controllers can actually be used to buzz along to music. This is according to a report from The Verge who stumbled across a Reddit post from last year where with a few tweaks, you could actually get the controller to buzz along to your favorite tunes.

We’re not sure if this was by design, but the user who discovered it did so by accident. According to u/Dino1482, “Sorry if this was already discovered, but when I plugged my dualsense controller into my PC, I noticed my speaker output changed to the controller. I thought this was odd, so I decided to play music from Spotify, and the dualsense essentially acted as a subwoofer, picking up the bass and vibrating along with the music. Depending on the song, the vibrations dynamically shifted from left to right.”

If this sounds like a fun mod that you wouldn’t mind checking out, The Verge has a short tutorial that you can follow to set it up for yourself.
