PS4 headphones

30 posts in this topic

Does anyone else have the probllem where no other headphones will work correctly? For instance I can use my iphone headphones and they work if the settings changed for all audio to the headphones but doesnt work for chat only? Anyone else seem to have this problem, I wanted to use a better quality headset than the one provided but none of them will work unless its all game audio to them. Cant just use them for the voice taking. If it is working for you can you tel me what headset you got and it's working with cause definatly not working with anything other than the ones provided by sony.

The Skull candy headset with the built in mic works for listening to others talk in the party. But you have to scream with the mic press to your mouth for them to even hear you. I was thinking of trying to Turtle Beach Ear Force PX-4 and hope it works well.

From what i'm seeing, it seems like it's fantastic. (Like a CIA's headset mainly.) I suggest calling Sony Support to help you with the microphones. Game on!

Greetings Space Cadets, we don’t get the PS4 for a couple of weeks here in the UK but is the provided headset earpiece as bad as it looks, it looks like it was a bit of an afterthought. I’ve also got a nice headset I use for gaming during the night that I want to continue using for both PlayStation and Xbox.

The headset does feel kind of cheap. The sound quality seems okay, though I haven't had a chance to test the mic.

To me it seems good enough for occasional use.

Anyone know if/when Sony are releasing an update so we can use PS3 Bluetooth headsets? I have a PS3 headset and would love to use it on the PS4.

Anyone tried a USB headset yet? I remember seeing an article or two on how the day one patch would make almost all usb headsets work, but that was months ago and things can change.

I tried the PS3 stereo headset and that doesn't work.  It says "not recognised".

That is dissapointing, looks like the only headsets that are claimed to work atm are £150+ turtle beach headsets, or the afterthought cheap as hell on happy hour thing that comes with. :( Maybe it'll be fixed by the 29th when the ps4 comes to this side of the atlantic. Not gonna hold my breath though.

Hopefully there is a patch because I love the PS3 stereo headset.

This is the headset I got:

IS79538.jpg

Its £50 and plug into; your TV/ Sound System, your Xbox 360 pad (uses a 2.5 to 3.5mm cable so will plug into the ps4 pad if you just buy another cable), and your mobile (for music or just taking calls).

To work on the PS4, the you either need a sound system or a TV with a 3.5mm Headphone jack and a usb port

Sony said right off the bat there was very few usb headsets that would work with the ps4 at launch but they are working on a patch so you can use other wireless headsets, I've got the pulse elite for ps3 debating on getting the turtle beach headset since it's compatible at launch

My damn Astros worked flawlessly with chat and audio for an hour and then the chat just stopped working. It makes me sad

PS4 chat earbud sux! After 30 min of use.. it's hurting my ear.  I'm already using 5.1 headset and I can hear the chat fine.  But, if I need to chat..i need to put this stupid earbud and chat only comes out of that... I want to hear chat through MY headset and I don't mind clipping the mic on my shirt.  By all means I don't regret buying PS4 but I'm kind of surprise at how they missed... common sense features.    Even the bluetooth is not working at the moment... really?

I just called up Sony regarding the bluetooth headsets and the guy at the help centre told me that they are hoping to have a patch out for them at the earliest January. :(

The head sets do seem to suck pretty bad but they did put the price of the Playstation at a surprising low amount so i guess they had to make a sacrifice somewhere lol

The headphones they shipped in the box doesn't even work for me.  Doesn't pick up my voice, and I can't hear anybody with it.  I gotta find a headset.

The headset doesnt look fancy but it does work when you talk to people. I use it all the time and it works properly. sure it isn't the best headset in the world but having it added was a nice touch. Since I do plan to buy better headsets in the near future it is nice to have the option to talk to people.

Im interested in finally getting a good gaming headset for the ps4. I plan on getting into streaming and need something with good sound quality and a good mic. Anyone know of anything in a decent price range, under a hundred would be nice, that works for the ps4?
