High end gaming headsets have been a popular staple of gaming among audio enthusiasts for quite some time now. Enter the Silver Wired Stereo Headset for the PS3 and PS4.
I shall have it.
Tritton needs to drop some completely wireless surround phones for x1/ps4. The warheads were killer.
Tritton are garbage I have had two pairs and they both broke multiple times (after warranty replacements) my official sony ps3 headset still works perfectly!
I stay with the gold. That ps gold headset its awesome.
And the price can't be beaten. I picked up the gold wireless headset when it dropped to 69.99 on amazon, and it was a great deal imo.
Yeah but is it any good? Hows the bass? Is the surround erh..surround? How does it perform when you raise the volume? I've been thinking whether to buy one or not but the price cant be beaten to be honest...
I wanna be the very best, Like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test, To train them is my cause. I will travel across the land, Searching far and wide. Each Pokemon to understand The power that's inside Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) its you and me I know its my destiny Pokemon, oh, you're my best friend In a world we must defend Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) a heart so true Our courage will pull us through You teach me and I'll teach you (Po-ke-mon) Gotta catch 'em all Every challenge along the way With courage I will face I will battle every day To claim my rightful place Come with me, the time is right There's no better team Arm in arm we'll win the fight It's always been our dream Pokemon!

A heart so true. Our courage will pull us through. You teach me and I'll teach you. POKEMON!
Pay the extra 40 and get the Gold. These look cheaply made to me.
Actually I think I will. I didn't realize that this headset was wired. Can't do wired.
Looks must-have for me
Nah, the slightly higher price of the Gold Headset is worth it imo. You buy a HS every few years maybe and the Gold version looks much better (and it's the best headset I owned yet) than this.
damn. White dualshock 4 also looks on point.
You seen the Glacier White Sony Golds? http://4u.pacn.ws/640/kn/go...
I love my Gold wireless, and they work on my PC and X1. These look a bit flimsy for the price.
hence the name "Silver" , kinda like the trophy system on the PS4... these are for people who dont want to pay $100 for a wireless headset.
I know what you're saying, but it's not that much extra. Might as well save up for another week/month for the Golds.
nah im happy with my 2.0 wirless headset
I'll wait for the Platinum Wireless Headset before upgrading.
I thought these would be the one up of the Gold headset, but it supposedly is the one below it now, considering the price point of $69.99. I can't wait to see what the difference in sound quality (if any) would be compared to the Gold. It does say it has 7.1 surround sound, just like the Gold PS4 headset.
Why would the silver trophy headset be above the gold trophy model?
Just by looking at them the audio will be crap compared to the gold headphones because of the lack of isolation to the ear. All headphones are terrible when they don't enclose your ears.
@porkChop I am not saying it is going to be above the Gold version. That is why I said I thought? I just saw the title (New Playstation Headset incoming) for a new Playstation headset and had immediately thought it would be the one up of the Gold, like how it was with the PS3. It had the Pulse and then the Pulse Elite. After reading the article, it is clear it is the one below the Gold. So now Sony will have a Silver, Gold...and most likely a Platinum version.
I have yet to hear a virtual surround sound headphone sound better than my actual surround sound Klipsch setup. I'm sure they must exist but it's not happening with these $100-$250 headphones.
i wonder how long the wire is?
From the Playstation Blog posting: "The attached 3.5mm audio cable is approx 4 feet long. This audio cable then attaches to the USB cable (with the in-line remote control at the other end) that is approx 10 feet long. So in total the cord is approx 14 feet long."
Thanks for the info! That may work!
Hopefully the mic isn't crap on these ones.
It most probably isn't, even the small mic that was included in every PS4 worked literally flawless for me and my brother.
The chat quality isn't up to snuff with these headsets (Pulse & Gold)
I like the Pulse elite and gold headset's design a lot more
I still love my old Pulse Elite edition that I bought for my PS3 a while back.
Not digging it , considering you can get the Gold around 82 to 89 ... and use it wired , with both jack and usb if you wish to . I also dont like the mic being external
To keep my px5 or upgrade to those?
Dont buy Turtle Beach. Nuff said.
I knew they were going to do this. Watch, within the next year we'll see a Bronze headset at $30 or $40, and a Platinum headset at $150 to replace the Pulse Elite.
Just bought my Gold, so I will pass on this one. Plus the Gold is only $10 more than this one on Amazon, currently selling for $80. (Black model, which pairs very nicely with my new blue DS4)
Nope I love my Sony Gold headsets. These Sony Silver headsets don't look good. But if they release a Sony Platinum headsets I will probably get those.
I love the gold headset so much that I use it for my daily music and with the new firmware it works with the PS3 as well all that said I can't wait for the platinum with rumble like the pulse elite PS3 that in my opinion is better than the gold and now after I gave it up it's updated to work with the PS4😫💦.
I'll stick with my a40
Exactly...a40's and a50's, far as headsets go, are very hard to beat.
I'm using these Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7B SVis Noise Cancelling Headphones. Has a detachable cable and blocks 90% of outside noise. I'm going to try these next; Sony MDR-ZX750BN. They're bluetooth and noise cancelling. Not really sure if these will pair with the PS4, but Sony makes some incredible audio gear, gotta give it a shot.
Differnce between this and the older version??
loss of auricle imminent
Have the Golds so pass on these. Waiting for them announce the Platinum version.
