Now that the PlayStation 5 has been out for a few years, we want to share some tips to upgrade your PS5 controller and gaming setup to win more and reach new levels of comfort and control.

Firstly, you are going to want to upgrade from those stock PS5 controller thumbsticks. By now, many of you are experiencing degrading grip integrity on those thumbsticks, and with no means of replacing the thumbsticks or adjusting the height/grip, KontrolFreek is your best solution. Our Performance Thumbsticks help you make smaller, more precise in-game movements with better comfort and control.

By increasing the height, KontrolFreek thumbsticks decrease the amount of force necessary to move in and out of the controller dead zone, so your hand feels less tired. The added height also increases arc distance, which allows for a larger field of movement for fine tuning your aim. With taller thumbsticks, you can increase your in-game sensitivity for quicker movements, while maintaining control over precise aim adjustments during crucial moments. Check out our Science of Performance Thumbsticks video to learn more about how KontrolFreek thumbsticks enhance your in-game accuracy and control.  

Next step to upgrading your PS5 controller is to find the set of KontrolFreek Precision Rings that are right for you. Precision Rings are a simple and easy solution to improving your aim and your game. They're real, science-backed solutions that benefit everyone. KontrolFreek Precision Rings are made from a flexible, moisture wicking material that dampens sound and quickly recovers its original shape. Add them to your PS5 controller to manually adjust the resistance of your stock thumbsticks, as the harder you push the thumbsticks, the more the material will compact to cushion your stick, adding resistance and preventing you from over-adjusting your aim.  

Precision Rings are fully compatible with all your favorite KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks. When used together, you can max out your sensitivity while maintaining enough control to take your game up a notch. Precision Rings are available in three strengths: soft (Green), medium (Purple) and hard (Black). The higher the strength, the higher the resistance and the more tension you will feel as you move your analog sticks. Not sure which level to choose? Try our six-ring mixed pack which includes two soft rings, two medium rings and two hard rings! Also, you can watch our Science of Precision Rings video to learn more about how this simple product can take your game to the next level. 

It’s easy to look at your stats and conclude that Performance Thumbsticks and Precision Rings help you add precision and comfort to any gaming controller, but don’t forget our KontrolFreek Performance Grips give you the comfort you need for those long gaming sessions. Putting KontrolFreek Performance Grips on your PS5 DualSense controller, along with Performance Thumbsticks and Precision Rings, gives you the most comfortable pro-level controller available. 

Lastly, check out the cables we have on offer, including a durable and reliable 12ft USB Type-A to Type-C Gaming cable, specifically designed to help gamers like you stay in charge of their Playstation 5 controller. It supports USB 2.0 data transfer speeds up to 480Mbps and 2A charging. The stylish exterior features a durable black and purple nylon braid and a round construction to prevent tangling.
