PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset
I got this headset about two years ago when I got my PlayStation 4 .The headset was recommend by an friend of mine even though he did have a pair at the time .So I tried them in love them ever since there very comfortable on your head they last for about maybe 4to6 hours depending on the volume you have set you the headset . But when it dies don't even worry there no need to wait for them to charger you have 2 options after that you have the choice too either plug in the wire adapter in side the 3.5mm jack port on the headset in plug it in the 3.5mm port in the controller or if you like me lol charger it in still have it wireless your choice .The design is great to me I have thrown my headset into the wall on the floor even laid down with them on in they are still kicking in are good condition. But all in all wonderful headset give them a try you wont regret it .
Very Little Bass
These headphones are great for the price. Sound quality is very good, ear cushions and head strap are extremely comfortable, and battery lasts for hours on end. The wireless adapter it comes with works on both PS3, PS4, and even PC. Does not have to be turned on when using with mobile devices connected through the included 3.5 mm jack audio cable. Works while charging. The hidden microphone works well. Ear cups fit comfortably around my comparably larger ears. Build quality is decent enough (the hinges that allow it to fold are a bit loose on every unit). Sound bleeds through when volume is at a reasonable level. Sound quality is very good even when compared to wired headphones HOWEVER there is very little low frequency response. Don't expect to amazed by the booming of explosions or the punch of a gunshot that you'll get with other headphones.
Let me start off by saying I own a set of Astro A50s, Triton Ax Pros, and Turtle Beach DPX21s. All top of the line head sets for sure. But for the money these are second to none. Now granted they don't have that full dolby surround sound where you can literally close your eyes and tell what direction the sound is coming from like the before mentioned headsets. For a stereo two channel headset they come pretty darn close. Sounds are loud, crisp, and clear. Comfort is amazing. And the simplicity of hooking them up with the wireless usb adapter is a major plus. Tried them on the vita with the included cable jack and they did not disappoint either.
Also with the headset app which can be downloaded from the PS store you can customize the bass, mid, and treble level. Or you can choose from the different presets available as well. Take it from someone who has owned numerous headsets, both stereo and dolby digital. For a $100 you won't find a better set on the market right now.
Best bang for your buck!
so I recently got a PS four and decided that I wanted to get a headset for it, now I usually don't do reviews on products that I use but I took a lot of time researching headsets and prices and deciding which set I wanted and to be honest it took me a while so I hope this review helps some of you out. Now I originally went to GameStop to get a pair of these but instead I got the afterglow kral headset, long story short that was a mistake and I was not happy with the headset at all even though they were on sale for $60. So I took them back to game stop and exchanged them for a pair of Sony gold, and that was an excellent choice. for the price of $100 there is no way you can go wrong with this headset. I'll start with the overall design of the headset. The headset is a little bulky or I guess you could say awkward in comparison to other headsets and the sides don't rotate or move much like a turtle Beach headset, but after putting the headset on it is very comfortable, even for those that have big heads and larger ears. It has a hidden mic feature which is pretty neat and at first different not having a mic boom sitting in front of your mouth but I will touch on this a little later on. You can control all of the sounds, volume for the game and volume for chat on the sides of the headset, it also has a mute button a surroundsound button and jack to hook up to other mobile devices. The headsets also fold up and come with a carry bag so you have something to transport them in. They are very light in weight and at the top of the headband is a foam like feeling substance that sits softly on top of your head, overall a very comfortable and neat headset for hours of nonstop gaming with all your volume control buttons easily accessible. There is also a mini USB port on the headset for charging and a button to switch between standard sound and custom sound. So far so good, now on to where these headsets really deliver, the sound. The first game I played with these headsets was call of duty, and when I got into action the sound was amazing. The 7.1 virtual surroundsound definitely delivers as I could easily tell where opposing players were coming from. The only drawback is the bass does lack a little, not to the point to where it's a dealbreaker by any means but you can download the free companion app and customize your equalizer to your liking and that does help in my opinion, though I have heard other reviewer's say that it is a pretty useless app. Battery life is pretty solid, you can expect to get anywhere from 8 to 10 hours of gameplay and a full charge taking about three hours. Now I'll be honest, the mic isn't as clear as say a pair of turtle Beach headsets, well I won't say that it's not clear but you kind of sound like you are in a tin can a little bit although I have not had anyone complain about it but again definitely not a dealbreaker here. I have not heard any distortion in these headsets just crystal clear sound even at full blast, I honestly had a hard time taking them off the first time. So in closing are these the best headsets out there? No, if you want to spend upwards of 150$ for a headset you would more than likely get a better experience, but for $100 these headsets in my opinion are definitely the most bang for your buck. They deliver a solid and enjoyable gaming experience with The 7.1 virtual surroundsound definitely not disappointing and at a price that any gamer can appreciate. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who is trying to get a solid gaming experience at a bargain price. Hope this review helps some of you out.
An upgrade based on feedback
These are exactly like the Pulse Elites, but with three exceptions: There's no rumble/bass impact motors on the headset, which will lengthen battery life (and keep you from getting a headache), the build quality is much higher than the Pulse Elites, and the charging port is now micro USB instead of mini USB. At $99.99, you get a feature-packed headset that should last a long time.
Totally worth the money
I replaced an older set of Turtle Beach PX3 with this headset. I had purchased the necessary cables and such to connect my PX3 to my PS4 and thankfully had not been forced to use the ear bud that came with the PS4. When I saw this headset announced I figured it would be my next purchase. Honestly the sound is better than the PX3's the comfort level is better. They are lighter, more comfortable, cheaper, and exceed the PX3 in every way possible. There is no boom mic. The sound is crisp and it's overly simple to connect and use. I will be putting my PX3's in a drawer as an emergency back up but won't be looking back. A must have if your looking for a gaming headset. The price is fantastic.
Love the surround sound and the design
This headset has great sound and stylish design, but it is not comfortable at all :/ my ears start hurt after about 1 hour of gaming. Overall though everything else is perfect.
Most Convenient Wireless Headset Out There!
Pros: Most headsets use a wireless router to connect it. But for this, all you have to do is just pop in a little USB stick and it charges through the same charger as your controller and most phones. The integrated microphone and audio cable makes it very easy to use as headphones for your phone or laptop. Very, Very, comfortable, and easily adjustable. The mute, volume and game:chat audio buttons are conveniently located. The Bass Boost is as simple as switching it on. An app on your ps4 lets you choose sound presets to give you "the best sound quality for that game". Cons: This is fine for only $100 but the sound quality is pretty bad, the "surround sound" they put in there isnt very good and it just sounds stuffy most of the time. There is less base than the standard apple headphones, and so far the app hasn't worked for me. Trust me VERY good for the price, but just think about the fact that you will have to use another pair of headphones for your xbox, so keep that in mind when you are choosing a headset.
Worth every Penny
I upgraded to these today from my Turtle Beach Px22 for the Ps4 use. I have to say, the sound quality on these headsets are phenomenal. For the price it is well worth it. The comfort is good, only thing is the head phone speakers should have been padded a little more but other than that everything is perfect!. My friends say that my voice comes out crystal clear. You can control voice chat and game audio volumes and the Battery life is 8 hours, it takes about an hour to fully charge the headset. Sony, you've done it again!. Success!
Good but not great
I've been looking around at the reviews for this product and I'm alittle confused. I have owned a few Turtle Beach products in the past and all though their microphone and speakers react well and sound crisp, I left them because of reliability issues. A $150 product should not break down within a year. I had purchased the PS3 wireless headset and loved it. I confidently walked into Gamestop to purchase the new redesigned headset. It's trial run would be with Destiny. The new headset is comfortable, sound quality is good. The only issue I have is the microphone. I adjusted the settings both with the app and in the PlayStation. I was playing with friends and they all agreed that I sounded as if I was speaking from across the room. The redesigned headset looks really cool and having the integrated microphone helps aesthetically but if it makes it so nobody can hear me...I'll take the original design if it means I'll sacrifice looks over functionality.
