PS4 and lack of Bluetooth support

[ Edited ]

I just got my new ps4 and cannot believe that Sony is no longer supporting blue tooth! I am hearing impaired and my bluetooth sends audio directly to my hearing aids.  It also acts as a mic for team play.  This worked wonderfully on my ps3 but now Sony wants to sell me $100 "official"  headphones that I could not use anyway.  It's bad enough you are now forcing Ps plus down our throats,  and that I can no longer play my movie or music collection but using a Mike is a big part of playing shooters.  What gives Sony? What solution do you offer for users with disabilities?? This new and improved model seems to be a big step backwards...

I'm with you.  I have a Siemens Aquaris aid with the miniTek BT remote.  It would be really cool if I could have the miniTek receiver connect to the PS4 and the PS4 would treat it as a mic/headset, which it basically is.

 

Also, I like your avatar.

Why can't you use a headset with your hearing aid? Is it uncomfortable?
