Works Great on the PS4
I'm currently using this with the Playstation 4 and playing Destiny. The headset is very light and fits nicely on my head. It was easy to get it working with the PS4. You have to plug the USB wireless transmitter into the USB port on the PS4 and connect the optical cable from the USB stick to the optical port in the back of the PS4.
You’ll also have to attach the mic to the headset to use the chat function. The optical cable is only long enough to reach from the USB port to the back of the PS4. You will not get audio if you do not connect the optical cable from the stick to the PS4. You can use the headset to chat with just the USB transmitter, but no game audio will output without the optical cable connected. (without the optical cable plugged in, you might as well just use the included mic plugged into the controller).
You will also need to adjust the audio and chat settings at the settings menu on the PS4 to get it working. It is not automatic.
While playing Destiny, I was able to hear birds chirping and the wind blowing while in the tower. Everything sounded like it was around me. I heard small sounds through the headset I never noticed compared to just just outputting the audio to my TV. All the gunfire had great bass, and the enemy screeching and screaming came through clearly. It really does sound amazing.
The headset also does an amazing job of canceling out background noise. While wearing the headset, I could only hear my friends talking and the audio in game. The only time I heard anything while wearing these is when my dog barked.
The headset comes paired right out of the box, and it only needed a 30 minute charge to get it to full power when I received it. I plugged it into the USB port on the PS4 to charge while playing Destiny.
I also enjoy wearing these while playing because I have a little baby and I can play the game (minus the chatting, of course) while he is sleeping. They sound pretty loud when you are wearing them, but people around you won’t really be able to hear the audio from your headset.
you can also use this with your iPad or Phone but since you need the 3.5 mm cable to plug into the jack, it is kind of cumbersome. I don’t even bother with it. This was meant for gaming on the PS4.
There are also preset settings, but I did not find them to make a difference. They all sounded the same to me. When you plug it in to charge, a female voice tells you it is charging, when it is full charged, and when it is turning on. It’s funny because I couldn’t find the power button until I looked at the manual. It is on the side of the headset, right on the Turtle Beach logo.
This is a great headset, and works great with the PS4. All the controls to adjust volume, and mic settings are on the right hand side of the headset.
I like this and if you are looking for a PS4 headset, I would consider this.
