The Best Thing About The DualShock 4 Has Barely Been Touched Upon

Dealspwn: "The Dual Shock 4 review is coming a little later today, but before that goes live, here's one of the very best things about Sony's next-gen controller: you can stream the system's audio out through the DS4's 3.5mm headphone jack."

A cool feature no doubt. The Wii U gamepad allows you to do the same thing.

I use this feature all the time at night. I have a really good pair of headphones and I just plug them right in. The volume is decent and audio fedility is amazing... Just another reason why this is the best controller ever created.... any pair of headphones you have laying around can become gaming headphones. No Bluetooth or batteries required lol. Just plug it in the jack....

I've been using this feature a lot. I just plug in my headphones and use that for the game audio. It sounds surprisingly good.

was definitely worried it would sound like some sort of bluetooth headset, but no. it definitely sounds about as good as being wired right in.

This is a big deal for me.

My personal TV doesn't have a 3.5mm audio out.

I think the Touchpad is more interesting though.

I've been using my PS Elite headset like this. Waiting for an update to make it work wirelessly like the PS3 or a new headset for PS4.

I had no idea I could do this until a guy from IGN mentioned it.

Theres really no point in using wireless when the controller is so close to you. Unless you really can't stand the cord going from your controller to your headset.

Both methods are great.

If you don't power on the Pulse Elite, then you don't have to charge it.
If you turn it on, then you get the rumble feature, but you don't get the virtual surround until it's officially supported, and you do have to charge it.

I HATE having that wire between me and the controller.

I move around a lot in my chair (reclining, sitting forward, curled up with my legs underneath me, etc...) So it is constantly getting in my way or catching on something as I'm moving.

I can't wait to play The Evil Within using headphones. That is going to be intense!

Headphones instantly make scary games way scarier.
