I got the TB PX5 - had them a year or so and used them on my 360 and now my PS4 - they work great.

Re: Best headset for ps4

I want to know when support for my Sony Wireless Stereo Headphones will be added, chatting through small earbuds is killing me!

Re: Best headset for ps4

I picked up the ones that Grainger Games sell (ORB for PS4).
I have PX21's for my PS3, and the ORB set has all the same features. Only £40, i'm impressed. Let's you keep the game sound (adjustable) and delete the chat if you wish (aslo adjustable). I can't fault them.

Re: Best headset for ps4

What's the sound quality like on those Orb ones?

£40 is a good price and the one thing I wish for (adjustable audio and separate chat volume controls) isn't possible with my current headset.

I wouldn't be expecting shocking surround sound for that price but if they Sound OK they might tide me over until I can afford something more lavish such as a px4 or Astro a40/50

Re: Best headset for ps4

If money is no limit, then avoid turtle beach at all cost. Cheap drivers, bad sound. I know they get good reviews from people however these tend to be people who have never tried an audiophile quality headset and don't know any different.

Best setups generally involve a Mixamp from astro. However if you can get hold of just the Mixamp, then you will get better quality sound from a pair of good headphones ( recommend sennheiser 558/598 but have a look around head fi site for others) and a seperate mic

These both then plug into the Mixamp. Giving you your 7.1 simulated surround, and mic, adjustable volume for each, adjustable bass, adjustable surround settings.

This however can be pricy but also generally works out cheaper than the a40's a50's themselves
