What wireless headphones work with PS4?

What wireless headphones work with PS4?

Today, even as a grown-up (and an avid gamer who likes to play Battlefield 1), I own a Sony PS4 and the fervor for playing games has become an annoyance to my folks when they tolerate me with sounds of digital gunfire and rattling booms throughout the house. For me, it’s a matter of pride – I am a gamer and I come with the genes to go on playing like a machine for hours.

And Sony has not left any stone unturned with the PS4 and proves to be the worthy successor to the PlayStation 3 and the best 8th generation gaming console available in the market today. Personally, I am in love with the graphics until recently I had an amazing experience with sound in my new wireless headset – the Astro A50 after a friend recommended it to me. From then on, it has been a real treat for my auditory senses along with my visual indulgence. With the right audio stimulation, every gamer can be much more involved in a game and this had led me to research some good quality wireless headsets in the market capable of providing a fascinating and complete gaming experience. Here are a few of my favorites:

Sony PlayStation Gold Stereo Wireless Headset

To begin with, Sony’s PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset is the basic and entry-level headset that you can add to your gaming console at a reasonable budget. Keeping the price to quality ratio in mind, PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset provides simulated 7.1 surround sound, programmable sound profiles, cross-platform support, and a rechargeable battery.  Though it is not the best wireless headset available in the market, this is definitely a device, to begin with.

The device is simple with a delightful lining of bright blue on the inside of the headband. Though it is sturdy enough for regular use, the overall build utilizes thin, lightweight plastic, faux-leather for the headband and earcups and the hinges for folding the earcups inward are loose and noticeably weak.

During long-term gaming sessions, the earcup padding feels breathable and the around-the-ear design is comfortable to wear. Noise tends to bleed in and out of the headset so it is not recommended for loud environments. All important sound controls like volume, mute, game audio and chat balance, surround sound toggle, and a sound profile switch are built directly into the headset.

To connect to a PS4, the set uses a USB dongle to link the headset and the console. It has a micro USB port for charging and syncing the headset not only to the console but to a PC or Mac as well and the mic feels better with the option of noise cancellation.

Sony PlayStation Platinum Wireless Headsets

This is the amped up version of the Sony PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset. This bad boy is packed with all the goodies that its predecessor lacked; besides the minor style change, Sony’s Platinum headsets are the first to offer 3D surround sound with 7.1 virtual surround-sound.

The headphones fold up neatly and weigh only 318.2g which makes it perfect for carrying around. It comes with a mix of plastic, metal, and rubber and the earpads themselves are made from a comfortable pleather material that fits snug on your head. The left ear cup houses two volume controls — one for media, one for chat — an On/Off switch with two possible “on” configurations, a mute button for the mic, a micro USB port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The right ear cup houses only a switch to turn surround sound on and off.

With a single-player game on a PS4 with traditional stereo sound, the Platinum sounds wonderful. The headset has a perfect balance between playing music and dealing with voice work and handles directional sound very well. It can be combined with streaming movies and TV as well and comes surprisingly packed with a battery-life claim of 12 to 14-hour mark.

HUHD Fiber-Optical 2.4 GHz Stereo Gaming Wireless Headsets

This gaming headset can be operated at a distance of 19-32ft (6-10m) meters from the transmitter. It comes with a built-in high volume lithium battery and can be used for 10 hours. Another feature of this headset is the 7.1 virtual surround sound effects and the headset can be adjusted separately to chat and background sound in real time. The sphere design of microsize convex lens sticks to the input terminal of an optical fiber, which minimizes the distortion caused by connection error and the Optical Fiber Transmission makes light beam highly focused reducing the reflection of a light beam and internal wall of optical fiber thereby shortening the transmission travel.

The earcups are breathable and fit nicely around the ear giving a good noise cancellation effect and make spy/war games enjoyable by bringing in the best quality sound like the rattling of digital gunfire, explosion etc. clearly in your ear.

Steel Series Arctis 7 Wireless Headsets

Next is the SteelSeries Arctis 7. This premium range headset’s frame is made up of an aluminum top piece that’s connected to the earcups via a plastic hinge which allows a 90-degree rotation. Earcups are coated in a soft-touch matte finish and made from a silky cloth. The headset is connected with the included USB transmitter and provides outrageously strong signal (even with shut doors). The microphone retracts neatly into the headset when not in use and a bright red LED on the tip provides clear notification when the mic is muted.

As with sound quality – the headset provides a beautiful sense of rhythm, with clear vocals standing strongly against the backing instruments and intricate detail in the game’s captivating soundtrack. Equipped with DTS Headphone:X, the headset is able to recreate a surround sound signal through the stereo drivers when using a gaming PC and the sound signature can be tweaked using the SteelSeries Engine software. The Arctis 7 offers excellent high quality at a lower price point. Battery life of more than 24-hour battery life makes this headset a thing of marvel along with its beauty.

Astro A50 Wireless Headsets

The Astro A50 Wireless headsets is one of the most expensive headsets on the market. The A50 wireless headsets comes with a USB base station and connects to your PC or console and houses the wireless transmitter to communicate with the headset. The build quality is excellent since the headset is constructed from tough matte plastic, and is held beautifully together with two metallic side pieces. With a battery life of 15 hours, the Dolby Headphone 7.1 virtual audio earcups swivel 90 degrees and have a soft-touch feel to the plastic. The microphone folds away when not in use and 40mm drivers with neodymium magnets do a superb job of recreating even the subtlest of sounds into a refined and detailed audio experience.

The wireless range is 30 ft. and holds strong for the majority of the time (even in adjacent rooms). It offers solid construction, a well-crafted sound signature and is comfortable to wear over long periods making it an easy choice for great sound quality and a brilliant wireless system.

Although there are dedicated headsets that make your budget explode, the above range of headset proves to be a great choice for most of the users all around the globe. Shop around a bit to find out more and take your gaming experience to the next level with authentic surround audio.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
