All Bluetooth headsets are not compatible with PS4
An update was made for USB headsets to work
An up-coming update will be available to make the Sony Wireless Stereo and Pulse Headsets (which use dongles) to be compatible, but that is it. All others will not work, and wont in the future either.
I should say: All PAST bluetooth headsets, which were PS3 compatible, are not compatible with PS4.
No update for PAST Bluetooth headsets that were PS3 supported, no.
New headsets that are Bluetooth that explicitly say are compatible with PS4 will work, but aside from those, no.
Information can be found here: http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/10/30/playstation-4-the-ultimate-faq/#sect5
For those who cba to click the link:
"Headsets - Connection: Bluetooth - Compatibility: NO - Notes: Headsets that are currently commercially available are incompatible.
Headsets - Connection: USB - Compatibility: YES - Notes: Will be compatible with system software version 1.50.
* After the update, generally most commercially available USB headsets will be compatible"
So will never have an update for bluetooth headsets through the whole lifespan of PS4?
Correct all past gen bluetooth mics are disabled for ever...
SCE licensed Bluetooth 3.0 headsets that Support Stereo audio and HQ vioce coms are allready planned but will be from Products developers licensed from SCE... the extras are going to be Locked out this gen...
To be fair a 2.5-3.5 cable will be only a couple of quid, but I thought of a better solution a 2.5-3.5 adaptor would then fit my xbox mode cable allowing the mute and volume controls to be available to me!
Have you tryed this with the px5 and had success ?.
I have a Sony SLEH-00075 Bluetooth headset that I am trying to pair with my PS4. Each time I try, it shows up on the list of available devices but upon attempting to pair, it says there is 'no supported profile on the PS4'. This headset works perfectly well on my PS3. It's a Sony product and yet it doesn't seem to be supported on the PS4. That doesn't make any sense at all. Bluetooth is a universal multi platform standard! Does anyone body have any ideas on this or do I have to wait until Sony update the firmware again? I can't believe the PS4 doesn't support one of Sonys own BT devices.
Thanks in advance. Help would be appreciated :-)
No doubt they are selling the PS4 at, or below, cost price to "capture the market", if you know what I mean. Particularly important at this stage in a product's life. Then they recover any potential profit margin by selling 'exclusive' peripherals for the machine.
They would have to find some way of forcing the consumer to purchase the items of course. Presumably making all PS4 peripherals incompatible with the PS3 (i.e. exclusive) is Sony's way to sell the PS4 peripherals. Otherwise, if you think about it, why would anyone buy another microphone or headset if they already have one that works pretty much perfectly?
At least, if I were Sony, that's what I would do. Not exactly rocket science of course. Predictable as hell though, don't you think?
PS. By "forcing the consumer to purchase the items", I may be stating it a bit coarsely. I mean of course, subtle marketing techniques and other things like adding flashing lights, extra knobs and buzzers. Influencing purchasers in such a way that they think they are making their own decision in the matter. A ploy used by manufacturers for centuries I believe.
At the end of the day, you may as well get the new headset. It may well turn out to be genuinely better than a PS3 version.
Hope this helps.
at the minute my headset is set up as follows.
Turtle Beach XP300 headset
Game audio = TB DSS2 (dolby surround sound processor v2)
Chat audio = TB PS4 Chat cable (from controller 3.5mm port to headset xbox 2.5mm port)
when i turn on my headset the ps4 prompts me go to device settings and pair my headset, but when I do this, I get the same message about profiles not being supported.
I have talked to a couple of people who wourk with computer programming and they inform me that the bluetooth tranciever built into the board is backwards wards compatible with bluetooth 2.0 devices but sony had locked deliberately not included 2.0 profiles to lock out older headsets.
for now my headset does work but cant understand the logic with this decision. the only way i can see this being solved is a usb soundcard and bluetooth adapter box of some kind made by a third party to give the console the impression that it is connected to a usb headset. The headset would then pair to this device and work as normal.
In theory this should work, If only I knew how to build something like this.
on the other had, a plug and play usb bluetooth dongel may also work
