What are some recommended headphones for Playstation4?
This is another great thread I found on reddit, from when when everyone was trying to figure out what ps3 headsets still worked with the ps4: http://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/1qtizq/america_can_we_get_a_list_of_working_headsets/
Iphone Headset - Doesn't Work
I tried the Apple's iphone headset, and it seemed like it might satisfy me till I got a legit pair, but like people in the reddit article mention, they cause a high pitch sound though the mic (you can see what I mean if you record a voice message and play it back).
PS Vita Headphones - Probably Not What Your Looking For
Although I'm sure they're great for casual gamers, much like if the iphone headphones even worked, I don't think these are going to give you the 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound quality you're looking for for games like BF4.
Tritton Kunai - Wired Headset For $50
If you're not looking for a wireless headset I'd do these, the ps4 version of this headset was on for $50 (select "for PS4" in the dropdown here: www.engadget.com/products/tritton/kunai/specs/).
Logitech g930 - Way Too Quiet (Avoid these!)
I bought thet Logitech g930's on Black Friday because they were on for $69 (reg $120) and people in the comments said they worked with ps4 as well, but I returned them because they were way too quiet, even at max volume, it was a waste of time, I'm sure they work great on PC, don't buy these for the ps4.
Astro A40's - Too Expensive
The Astro A40's seem to be a very popular choice, however they are not wireless, $240 for non-wireless headphones? I'd spend the extra $50 to get the wireless ones for $299 but that's only $100 less than what I paid for the entire console, it seems crazy to pay that much!
A lot of people swear by them and only buy Turtle Beach, you can find a list of compatible ones here (www.turtlebeach.com/console-compatibility) but do some reading if you have to buy one of their new compatibility cables for yours to work.
Playstation Pulse Elite - What I'm Holding Out For
Wireless headphones for under $125, and by the company that makes the console? I'm in! However, they aren't supported yet, Sony says they need to push out a patch for them to work with the console in early January, so I'm holding out for when and if they actually do that.
