PS controllers receive updates like the PS does. Some headsets become incompatible after such an update.

You just need to wait for the controller to receive a new one and that's it. 

If you are not sure it's this, you can test with a different headset, different controller or try the headset with a mobile device to see if the Mic Works.

Next full function 6.50 will be around March but you still need to do more testing with other controllers and other devices FIRST...

My PS4 Life was an EU service only and not for any other region of account. Service was IP address geo/location blocked. service has been shut down in EU

SIEE PS3/PS4 Beta Tester.

From SIEE blog "There is no guarantee that all USB storage devices are compatible with your system." for firmware 4.50

Black screen on PC remote play showing up as windows GPU driver miss match, visit Intell, AMD, Nvidia to change your driver, downgrade of GPU driver may be required. Java script failure in remote play at login is IE render engine setting in IE security set to off... turn it on...

Finaly got my Beta badge back took long enough...

Some Skull candy headphones have a replaceable cable, so it has 2 x 3.5mm jacks with 1 both ends these both need to work at the same time...Because these headsets support disconnecting cables you can Get the jacks to be loose at ether end...

 

They can also be connected the Wrong way round after lack of use because they support both 3.5mm at each end... If you have skull candy bluetooth headset and have to use the cable to DS4 then some people can put the cable in the wrong way round as there both 3.5mm... it can also take more pressure to get the MIC working at the headset end...

 

As you don't state what model then We have to rule that out first...

With the skull candy headset, the 3 black rings aka 4 pole 3.5mm jack has to go into the DS4, the 2 ring 3 pole jack goes into the headset... No mic usage has been caused by the users before, rushing and putting the wrong jack into the head set end... Other users have made that mistake, other companies now use 2.5mm jack to avoid this issue...

 

With the cable the wrong way round the mic on the Cable will not work as it has no power but audio does...  

 

Rule that out first...

The other issue to rule out is that you have not just gone and got a New DS4 version 2 in the last 2 months as the DS4 Version 2 has been killing Mics with over voltage during crashes or shut down... Astro A10s users had this happen...  if you stopped playing 2 months ago because you had a game crash the DS4 version 2 could have over driven the mic to were it needs higher voltage to work correctly now and not the 2volts of DS4 feed..  

 

Some finds to fault find...

Ok going with they no longer work with the 2Volt 350mili amp feed of the DS4  and require the higher 3 volts as their tolerance has fallen out side the DS4 supplied feed as they got older and updates to the DS4...

Nothing they won't work with DS4 ever again as they have worn out and become incompatable with Ds4 feed as they require higher voltage feed supplied by Android and PCs of 3 volts

Bose won't work

There built for apple crap and never have worked correctly they require android spec mic supplied to run of 2 volts... the digital controlls for apple compliance mean all beats and bose junk built for apple have never worked correctly from day one as they supply Apple cables...

 

This is why SIE supplied an Android spec unit with the PS4 Skull candy units were meant to be Android first devices...

Or built for Console headset... from proven console headset builders  not mobile brands

Cause I don’t want to risk buying the Sony gold wireless headset and then if it didn’t work then I lost money for nothing or is it going to work because this headset is wireless
