PS4 and Sony Pulse Elite headset?

47 Replies 20,389 Views Created 10-11-2013

I have done a fair amount of research on this topic and I have yet to find a concrete answer even after reading the FAQ Sony has released. It is my understanding that the Pulse Elite headsets will work after the 1.5 launch day patch? Is this true? Thanks in advance for any info!

The same old PS4 FAQ on the EU blog...

I read all of the Peripherals & Accessories section, not just the part I liked...

The FAQ allready said NO

 

There are no plans to add any current gen BlueTooth mics to the PS4...

Only current USB mics will be enabled...

 

Future brand new Bluetooth Mics are expected to work... IF they are licensed by SCEI...

 

 

The main reason that mono speaker and mic won't be supported is likely because it used 3 Bluetooth channels to connect to the PS3. but it does not matter as they just not supporting any BT mics from this gen...

This sucks balls as I don't see the big hype paying £20-£100 pound for a stereo headset to look like a helicopter pilot with a wire trailing across my living room floor can I at least plug a better headset in to the pad ?

Helicopter pilots have wireless RF headsets with Multi channel audio and VR head up displays now.

 

You can connect your own mic and speaker but make sure its not a 2.5mm jack headset or youll need an adapter...

Bro, so is it a bad idea to get the pulse elite for the upcoming PS4 right now?

Exclusively for the PS4, yes.  

 

If you don't have PS3, PS vita, then buying now is not required...

 

Once the Feature is confirmed for release to PS4 with a Date of firmware release...you should buy

There could also be a better headset released before the PS4 gets compliance with the Pulse. 

Hopefully the Dongle on the Headset will be redesigned again not to be as fragile as it is...

Wow. that was quicker than I thought..:cathappy: Thanks for the expresso reply.

 

Yeah, i was going to buy them exclusively for the PS4, but I guesss I'll hold on that then. I would not mind that there would not be immediate compatability, but now it worries me that they might never make them compatible.

I have read that you will be able to use the Pulse Elite just not wirelessly after the 1.5 patch. You can just plug in the audio cable that comes with the headset into the PS4 controller. Is that possible?

The jack port on the Pulse head set is for audio in only the mic don't work... Via it...

This is the same as plugin any 3.5mm Headphones to your TV headphones socket.

As you said its just an expensive wired headphones then.

Nobody should be buying this headset for the 2.0 audio, you can get from the HDTV head phone socket...

 

PS There is no elite version in EU it was only added to US box as US users are to dumb to notice the difference with out it... lol  Thats SCEA for you, insult the buyer before purchase and hope they don't notice...

This is a total bummer, i plugged my headset in while booting up KZ shadowfall and it told me its not supported.

I had also read before launch that it would be supported.

Hope a fix is coming soon.

Now i just have a $120 useless headset sittin around.

I have the pulse elite. I got it to work (limited sound) by connecting it to the controller via the m2m 3.5 mm cord, and changing the sound in the ps headset settings to all audio. The volume isn't the greatest and most of the functions don't work, but you do get sound and chat works too! Guess itll have to do till the update.

Based on this comment

"Will Wireless Stereo Headset and PULSE wireless stereo headset, which are currently sold for the PS3 system, work on the PS4 system at launch? What about other wireless headsets?
The PS4 system will support the Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset and Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset following an upcoming PS4 system software update. Existing wireless headsets from third-party companies that use a Bluetooth connection will not be supported on the PS4 system, though most existing headsets that connect via USB will be supported following PS4 system software update 1.50."

I assume that after a later update not the 1.5 they will support it but I've heard it works via USB, I will have to wait till I get my ps4 on 29th to find out myself I guess

There seem to be a few work around's by reading also I have the Sony pulse it's a really good headset not just for gaming but for music and video watching.

 

1. If you have a HD TV that has USB'S and a audio jack then you use them and use the included microphone until they are patched or.

 

2. By what someone has said in this thread you can plug them into the controller but since they are not patched the sound and chat don't work great and some of the functionally don't work either.

 

Just a mini work around until they are patched in no worries guys.
