Turtle Beach P11 headset with PS4...

[ Edited ]
20 replies 28720 views Edited Mar 14, 2014

Will the PS3's Turtle Beach P11 wired headset work with the PS4? It doesn't seem like it will connect directly to the system, but where the controller has a headphone jack, i'm in hopes it may work through that until I can save up for a better wireless headset.

 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

They work... Sort of. You have to plug the "piggy back " RCA jacks into your TV or reciever. I have not tried to plug the jack directly into the controller as it would require me to have power from a separate USB charger. The 1/8 jack cannot plug into controller while USB gets power from the console.
When running the jack through the TV, I found that the vollume box doesn't work and you have to manually go into system settings to turn the vollume up or down, and you can't adjust the difference between chat and game vollume.
This is the same as if you plugged in the earphones that come with it.
The only way to adjust vollume (as it stands now) is to do it manually though the sytem settings.

The thing is, even other headsets that Turtlebeach and Astro are putting out there as "compatible" (like the PX4) are turning out to not have all the features they were meant to have. So I imagine that until Sony can get a software patch out, you won't be able to get the most out of your headsets, even if the company claims full compatabitlity with the PS4.

I say, for now... Use your P11s or simply plug some earphones with a mic. Like iPhone earphones.

They work...

As mentioned I ran the USB to the PS4 and the other plug to my tv audio out (I wS able to adjust volume via the tv).

I highly recommend the DSS2 ($60 on Amazon). It not only gives you surround sound but greatly improves the overall sound quality with the P11s. It'll also allow you to run everything straight from the PS4. I started out with the P11s and adding the DSS2 made a world of difference.

Edit- Well, it was $60 on Amazon when I bought it two weeks ago. Now it's showing $73.

You can add on a DSS2 to normal P11's? I thought that was only for the PX11 or something. Good to know. Thanks. Smiley Happy

Yeah, I think you can use it with pretty much any stereo headphones. But I got my P11s at Walmart out of desperation one night and added a DSS2 a few days later via Amazon.

Also- See the edit in my last. Smiley Sad

Yeah, I just checked... N they're more now. Well, it's not super high priority right now to have that much control over my sound. I can wait for the dust to settle and for everyone to get their ducks straight.
I suppose this is part of the price you pay for getting nice things first.

BTW (if anyone is interested)- They sell a package with the DSS2 and P11s on Amazon at a discount (over buying separately)... Think they call it the "DP11"?

I noticed that too... Might as well cop another pair of headsets while you're at it, right?

I'll probably pick it up for my son for Christmas. I'm no audiophile but the setup is great IMO. Better than the $400 5.1 system I had been using until recently anyway.
