I just ordered the PLYR 1's from Best Buy yesterday $129.99 in black. They should be here tomorrow, I'll let you know how I like them. I needed something for late night gaming and these seem to get a lot of praise.
I'll keep you posted.
Alright.. Heres my review. Grading on 10 scale
Sound- 8. While they sound great, they could have more bass or be a little louder ! I haven't tinkered with the app to adjust bass, but for 99 they sound is good enough
Look- 8. The headset deff looks a little silly if you are gonna be using it in public. you can customize the side pieces so they don't have the sony XO etc if you want.
Comfortablility - Very Very comfortable. They fit really good, are light enough , and don't cause any trauma to the head/ears so to speak
The headset also is made for the PS4. The app allows you to customize and download specific settings game creators make. For example, Infamous has a special upload to make the experience and sound better. Battery life seems really good.
For 99 you can't go wrong. Sony always makes there hardware very durable and i don't have to worry about it breaking. (so far so good)
Hope this helps
The PlayStation gold headset isn't worth $100 of your money at all, I got my self one for Christmas and it stopped workling January 3rd 2016. PlayStation is trying to scam us. the headset worked good for 8 days and then stopped working. the headset is Trash. I'm gonna demand a full refund from the store I bought it from, If they don't I'm gonna sue gamestop If thet dont refund it. Playstation went cheap making the Headset
Oh ffs, crap happens. Sometimes brand devices from all manufacturers are DOA or die within a few days. You're headset is no different. I've seen TV's, cell phones, Apple devices, kitchen appliances, etc all break within a short period of time, and they've all been exchanged for the same or different model. Grow up.
My first gold headset lasted for over 2 years before it broke, which was my fault.

I don't work for Sony. Just a gamer helping others.
