Whats a good headset to buy?

10 replies 174 views Edited Nov 23, 2013

I saw the other post but id like some real suggestions from some of the longer running players that got the next gen console. 

 

I want some kind of wireless ear piece headset. I hear some blue tooth headsets work fine on PS4, any insight to wether thats true or not? 

 

Id appreciate any feed back guys, have a good night ladies and gentlemen.

It's difficult to answer because right now only mics with a 3.5mm input are supported, SCE plans on adding USB and Bluetooth mic support in a future firmware update. I'm just using a cheap mono headset until then.

 

If you want quality, look into the Pulse headset by Sony or you can shop around for something by Turtle Beach. I wouldn't personally recommend a Bluetooth headset, most of them have mediocre mic quality and issues with latency unless you willing to spend big.

 

Edit: Logitech had some really great Bluetooth headsets a few years ago, not sure if any of them are still in production but it's worth checking out if you want to go with that style mic.

Turtle beaches or Giotech are the best.

I know they are expensive but I just bought an Astro A30 and I love it. i used to go through at least 1 turtle beach a year before the wires would break and you would lose sound. The Astro's cost me 200 bucks but the good about them is if a wire goes you simply replace teh individual cable not the entire headset and you can get a set of cables for less than 50 bucks from Astro.

Well he's asking for an earpiece for chat. With that being said, I believe anything that uses a 3.5mm jack will work.
