PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset
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.
Well Designed Set of Muffs
From a 5+ year user of Tritton headsets this pair from Sony holds its own. Simulated 7.1 surround is pretty darn good for a stereo headset. I am impressed with the clarity of sound that came from them once I realized you had to go to the device manager and allow all sound to the headset and not just the chat. The optional switching between two settings (Stereo and 7.1) is nice. I tried the headphone app on PS4 and it was easy and intuitive when it came to selecting and loading a sound preference from the list of presets and the mixer allows for endless options for those tweakers. These things are light and comfortable especially for a wireless set. The ear muffs cover my large dumbo ears with room to spare and the pockets in the muffs are deep enough they allow my ears not to be presses against the speakers. I got these on sale for $79 instead of the $99 but now that I have tried them the $99 tag is appropriate.
Unexpected Great Results
I have been on the market for some great sounding wireless headset that didn't cost an arm and leg (like the Astro A50). I tried the Turtlebeach PX3 and they seem bulky and the biggest disappointment was the battery life. I got tired of changing the batteries so I purchased the Turtlebeach PX22. I really enjoyed them but after awhile I got tired of messing with the cables. I seen that the Playstation Gold Wireless Headset was on sale so I read and watched some reviews. I wasn't expecting very much from these headset for the price but surprising I was blown away with the sound. I also love the sleek look and feel of the headset. I only worry about them breaking down the road where they fold up. Granted I take excellent care of my stuff but there is always that chance of something happens that you have no control of. Anyway, I definitely recommend this headset to anyone that wants great sound and low budget.
Great performance, not so great quality.
I got this to go along with my PS4 in FEB and it was really, really impressed with the quality of the sound for a pretty reasonable price. I used it on my PS4, XB1, and my PC and was really pleased with my purchase, until today that is. I only use my headset at my desk and I am the only one who uses it. I do not allow my kids to use it. Today I removed the headset from my head and the left earpiece fell off. I looked closer and the small cheap tabs that are there to hold in the pin on the hinge broke. I inspected further and noticed all four spots were cracked really badly. I decided to call Playstation to get help since it is only JUL and it is under a year warranty. They proceeded to tell me that I was out of luck because the warranty only covered internal parts. I would not recommend this headset if you don't want to have to replace it in 5 months. It performs great but is built with cheap material.
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.
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.
This is the best headset I've ever owned I love them. They are really worth the money they cost they make my games so much better now.
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!
Gotta have it!
I wanted a wireless headset for a long time and these were on sale for $80 over the playstation weekend. I dont play games often so i only got to try it once but i already love it. I would recommend this to all playstation4 owners!
