Is it possible to use a USB headset AND a seperate microphone on PS4?

Hi,

I have a razer thresher ultimate that outputs through the optical out and usb port, it has a mic on it but isn't sufficient for streaming etc. I was wondering if I was to get a microphone (thinking a Blue Yeti) if it would be possible to use both at the same time? So far the only work around I have found online is plugging your headset into the controller - but as my thresher is bluetooth to usb into the playstation that's not going to happen - and I don't particularly feel like having to get another headset especially since this one has surround sound and works really well - basically it's do or die... Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

The headset is RF to RF wireless base station... it not rubbish laggy bluetooth...

 

With the OPTICAL port on base station then it can work with standalone mic, as it does not need USB for Mic then if you don't require the mic use.

it will only need USB for power and that can be ANY other port and not on the PS4 ports.

If you don't want to use the headset mic then just don't plug the USB into the PS4 just plug the USB into any other USB port or USB 5v adapter and it will power the optical decoder that gets both the chat audio and game audio out put via the single optical cable, with out a USB connection all audio goes to the optical port...

 

Then plug the USB mic in and the PS4 will use that for mic in...

You disable Automatic out put change so that it does not out put audio to the 3.5mm headset jack on blue yeti mic but instead leaves the audio to the optical port, now you still mute the HDTV as the speaker audio will get picked up by the blue yeti mic...
