Review: Sony Wireless Headset 2.0
These are the official cans of the PlayStation 4, but are they any good?
The PS4 supports almost all gaming headsets out-ofthe-box, unlike Xbox One, which requires a special headset or an adaptor. But Sony doesn’t want you to buy just any old headset. It wants you to buy this one.
love Quick and simple setup. Compatible with practically everything. Comfortable for long sessions hate Average audio. Surround only on PS3 and PS4 T3 says The sound quality isn’t going to win any battles, but these are wireless and affordable
Designed to complement the PS4’s sleek design, the headset sports a flash of blue under the headband and a neat array of buttons on the back (you’ll need to remove the headset to change settings until you learn where things are, though). It connects seamlessly to its own wireless USB dongle, rather than Bluetooth, with setup a breeze – you have the option to route all audio to the headset, or just chat. They never sound incredibly loud and are lacking in bass, but the virtual 7.1 surround sound works well and they do a good job of blocking the surrounding hum without using active noise cancellation.
Gaming on the go? The supplied 3.5mm cable lets you use the headset with the PS Vita handheld, plus all smartphones and tablets. The foldable design is easy to stash in a bag, too.
Hardcore gamers will still be better off with the Astro A50 wireless headset, but for well under $150, these are a good mainstream option.
