Will the new headset be able to be used on the PS4 plugged in?

3 replies 216 views Edited Feb 4, 2014

I see you can use the new pulse headset wirelessly. But can you plug it into the jack in the PS4 controller and use it? I don't want to drain the battery quicker if I don't have to.

Yes, it connects directly to the PS4 using the wireless adapter.

You will have to connect the headset to the controller if you want to use the mic.  Not sure what you mean about draining the battery quicker.

You can indeed plug into the ds4 when your battery dies to continue playing. And no you don't need to plug in to use the Mic as the above member said. It is now fully wireless.
