PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset
Great value, and great preformance
Overall this is a great headset. The sound is really nice for only $100 and the mic works surprisingly well considering it's a small hole hidden under another piece of its self.
What it doesn't mention on the description is that it also comes with a carrying case that it fits into after the ear pieces fold in, which is nice, but I can see them snapping at the joints if I'm not careful.
Pros would be that mics great quality, it's ease of use, and the fact that you can install a custom setting via a free app provided by Sony on the Playstation Store, and switch from that to default easily. Battery life is up to 8 hours for regular gameplay, and that's held true for me, though despite being warned that initial charge could take 3.5 hours, it only took 1.5 to 2.
Cons would be that The set itself is thin plastic and a lot of padding up top, which looks nice, but it's not that sturdy. Please don't leave it on the floor. One mishap and I fear it's all over. The charging cable that comes with it is very short, but you can use the same cables that come with your controllers and or smart phone. Also, to make it work you have to plug in a USB, taking up one of the precious two ports.Other than that, there's just the joint thing mentioned earlier.
I recently purchased this headset to try and find a new replacement for the Tritton Kunai wired headset for the PS4 and while it originally did everything I wanted and even sounded great the cord died on me. So...on to these which also did everything I wanted plus were completely wireless when connected to the console. The only drawback ( and this is really just me) is that it didnt have enough bass. It did have some....but not what I was looking for. Otherwise they are fully compatible with the PS3, PS4 and mobile devices including any device that used a USB connection like a laptop. So the overall sound is excellent and I recommend these very much if strong bass isnt a concern for you.
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.
Headset is perfect for playing games with no TV sound. A great Value for parents with young children that can play only at night, or during their nap times.
This is the first headset I have purchased for gaming. Ive always just had the one ear bud for chat. I wanted to be able to game without interrupting my wife and son. You won't find a better headset for the money
Best money can buy....
What can I say they are amazing the sound the design and it's very comfortable 10 out of 10.... Love them 4 call of duty ghost and infamous second son.....
first off the design. its so sleek and looks nice. and its crazy how there is a mic i n it, which happens to work rest. apparently your voice sounds a bit muffled but thats not an issue. and the speakers are insane. it could easily smash your eardrums. and its nice how long the battery life if you plan on gaming or watching something for a while. that reminds me, it works for anything on the ps3/4. youtube, netflix and all games. definitely buy this.
had the first original wireless stereo headset from sony and thought they were great. they still work after 2.5 years but the synthetic leather is completely peeling off and looks horrible, so decided to upgrade to these since i have ps4 now. very nice upgrade from the first ones,sound quality is definetly better with 3 custom programable settings, 3.5mm input, sturdy build quality, super comfortable. only flaw i see is that the same synthetic leather material is used in the earcups and headband, so i guess in another 2.5 years theyre going to start to peel as well. but for the price you really cant complain
You really can't do better for 100 dollars.
+Sound quality is excellent for gaming.
+The positional audio effect is excellent, especially for games that have been designed to support it, like Infamous: Second Son.
+Lightweight and comfortable, with good balance on the head and earpads that breathe well while keeping the sound in.
+8 hour battery life
+Surprisingly long range
+Easy to set up
+Free PSN app for fine-tuning the sound is intuitive to use
+Microphone works well, even without a boom.
+Excellent value, especially at that price point.
-Construction seems fairly flimsy, and unfortunately the flimsiest parts are the hinges, which make them feel like they could break if you aren't very gentle when handling.
-Sound quality is very much geared towards gaming, and offers mediocre sound quality for music listening or movie watching.
-Using the volume buttons on the side make a very loud beep, right in your ear, and the audio from that overrides any other audio coming in.
-Only one title has been given an official sound mix for the headset.
Overall: The combination of features and performance is unmatched at 100 dollars. I just wish the money Sony spent on that carrying bag was spent on reinforcing the hinges instead.
I was unsure at first whether I was actually going to buy these or not. I wanted a headset since in my dorm i have a roommate and dont want to disturb them while I am gaming. So i wanted a headset (I have both PS4 and PS3). So i began looking into this headset due to it being specifically for Sony and I saw the things for it with Infamous Second Son. I spoke with a Gamestop employee about them and decided it was a good choice to try them. I love them. Not only is the sound quality nice, there is plenty of bass(enough to where I had to turn it down). Also, the fact that you can use them on any device with a headphone jack is awesome. Would highly recommend.
