Yes it will work. But because the PS4 does NOT have analog AV out, only has digital optical output and HDMI, you will need this:

All your headset should work just as they did on PlayStation 3 but more clearer!

To each their own, but honestly, my solution takes that stereo sound and transforms it into surround sound, which is in my opinion worth paying a little more for and so much better. While you're booming to stupid old stereo sound, I'll be jamming out to surround sound on my headset. Smiley Wink

Emulated surround is not true surround. Not even true 3d sound

^^ This.  If your headset is stereo (ie one speaker for each ear), you will only get stereo sound.

It will work, but you'll need to buy a mixamp, like the earforce series from turtlebeach.

it has a use for optical audio.

 

 

Because the PS4 likely won't have Analog-AV multi like the PS1/2/3 has had, you'll need to get something of the sort that takes audio from Optical or HDMI (and can pass the video through)
