Hardcore Gamer: Now that the PlayStation 4 is finally out, it seems Sony is releasing a new headset to go along with it.
-looks at my boring headset- Why must you make such awesome things Sony. =[
I knew it. I was tempted to buy the Sony Pulse Elite for my PS4 but I kept having the feeling Sony would release a new version for the PS4. Glad I waited. I wonder if a Platinum version will also be available. I seen tge package of the headphones on another site and it had a gold trophy on it.
pulse elite doesnt even work on ps4 yet
"I wonder if a Platinum version will also be available. I seen the package* of the headphones on another site and it had a gold trophy on it." Well, heres two possible answers. 1) It could relate to something we don't know about the headset. Like it might be a feature or element that is not known. 2) Assuming the trophy thing is real, it could explain why these look like the two year old model instead of the pulse headset. It could be that Sony is using the gold (modeled after the original headset) as a basic version and a platinum version (modeled after the pulse) will be an upgraded version also offered or offered down the road. Though, I really wouldn't spend too much time thinking about it. * I also saw a picture of the packaging, but it was so pixelated that I doubt its legitimacy.
Pulse Elite works with a 3,5mm cable connected to the Dualshock4 and should work wireless in the next few weeks (I guess latest on Japanese launch day) This "Gold" Headset lolks more like an affordable version of the Pulse and not like a real "successor" in terms of quality.
@Zod18 Pulse elite doesn't properly work as it should on PS4. Using the cable doesn't really use all it's functionality like VSS, Mic & Audio Balance, and rumble. My friends also said that I sound far off when I speak. Sony mentioned they will be updating the software for the PS4 to recognise this, I hope it gets up soon.
It's looks okay I'll just stick with my pulse elite headset just waiting on that update to use them wireless Sent from my Xperia Z1S
Off-topic, but phones have no business posting signatures or tags on website comments. It's tacky. Not having a dig at you, just don't like whoever had that idea in the first place :)
Lol, they kind of remind me of Dre Beats, the special feature sounds cool if devs go that extra mile for it. This is a good sign that the firmware update allowing wireless blu-tooth headsets to work will be coming soon. I don't mind having headphones plugged in to my controller but I am use to being completely wireless from being a PS3 gamer for so long. More options are always great.
Really? Those headphones look pretty cheap in build quality...the original PS Headset that was released is far better looking than those chunky things I just saw..
YES! Finally I can shout insults at kids on Call of Duty in comfort!
So...how about that support for Pulse?
Its already there. Just plug the headset inside the DS4
The first Pulse headset doesn't have a cord. Only a USB adapter.
Looks a bit plasticy for my liking, think I'll stick to my Pulse headphones for a while yet.
Still waiting for a patch for my official 7.1 PS headset to work with my PS4. For me Sony and the saviours of gaming, but I find it a little ridiculous the official PS3 headset doesn't work on the PS4.
I can't wait for it either.
I'm still rocking those original headphones but maybe its time for an upgrade.
Mine just had a door fall on it and the sides got a little crack, good news for me :D hope is around the same price ad the last one though
I'm guessing that a update is coming that will also let the Pulse headset work with PS4.
Its been confirmed and was said to release in "early January", so we should see it soon.
January is almost over though.
can't remember anyone confirmed it...
OR they keep pushing it back and back to support the sales of the new headset...
I liked the first sony headset. the elite were cheap.These look ok and sure they're just like the others. I'm more interested in what turtle beach will come out with next for the ps4.
These headphones look like my Beats Studios,but black with PlayStation branding.
looks like we won't see any fw updates to support the existing pulse headsets anytime soon T_____T
I like the construction on this new headset doesn't look like it'll have the headset cracking problem that the Pulse Elites have.
yes. mine cracked within 5 months.
*Bought a pulse headset last year, wants new one this year*
It doesnt say anything about Bass impact? Just slightly hints at it with the "big booms to whispers" on Play asia. Really liked Bass impact, unfortunately it stopped working and it didnt get fixed when I sent it in for service and my dog chewed on the dongle so I couldnt send it back in again, so I gave it up. I might get this new one if it has BI and no/less static noise. PE had noticeable static going on and that is what bothers me the most with wireless headsets. It looks really comfy and clean at least, and supposedly you can swap "faceplates" according to the linked sites.
Finally! The bad material choices on the pulse held me back from getting a 3rd one but this is probably their fix to the pulse. Sweet.
Looks nice but I already bought a pair Astro A50's , will deff recommend to my friends who need new headsets for there ps4!
Still waiting for an update to use the first Wireless Headset from Sony on PS4.
My kids broke my pulse elite. Guess I'll just wait for these. I hope they don't cost $150. They better last longer than my elites.
Sony what is the this new headset cloud based maybe!
