A look as to whether or not the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset is worth buying for use with the PlayStation 4.
I have it, I like it.
I like it too. Been using it for all my audio even though I have a surround system. Sounds great. I managed to land one for $40 at Target on black friday. Freaking steal!!
The sound quality for the price is surprisingly good the build quality however is its only negative. I got mine for full price and despite its delicate feel it works perfectly ;)
While it does feel somewhat delicate, that also works for it as a positive, as it's light and feels very comfortable on the head. Only complaint I have with mine is that the battery is pretty crappy. Idk how long it used to last, but mine only lasts about 3 hours now. But I was able to get mine for 54 bucks so I can't complain.
Mine broke in less than 6 months. The plastic snapped above the pivot point on the left side. I taped it, but it extended too far off my ear and sounded off. I then bought ps silvers and they broke at the very top. Although, they hurt my ears bad and now they fit super loose and don't hurt as much. Overall I am unimpressed with the cheap design of sonys headsets.
yeah the pivots area are definitively bad . You can take good care of the headset , and still ends up being unlucky
They are a really nice bang for the buck.
Best value for the money IMO, works on my Xb1 too.
For it price, yes it's worth.
Anyone facing issues with psn? Can't login :(
Yep mines Never logs in
Just checked the Twitter, the good news that we are not alone lol.
If I don't use lan line Ethernet I can never connect . But right now I'm having lOts of issues so I think it's down
It's been lagging for me today, but I'm online and in a party.. the store is down though.
I don't care for it, I like the Pulse Elite headset more because the sound is better. But this vs other cheap headsets, yeah its way better. I just wish the buttons were like Pulse Elite's, so you can tell how volume is and what other buttons are.
Same here. Pulse is way better. Huge difference
Yeah the pulse elites are a lot better!
Yes, they sound great. Looking for nice surround headset at a reasonable price check these out
No. Wait until PlayStation Platinum Wireless Stereo Headset because you know it's coming.
Except people have been waiting for over a year already and during that time they released the wired and cheaper silver instead . Those that want better should invest in something else instead .
The gold's give a good sound for the price, in fact it was perfect for a while, until it snapped. The build quality is crap, the headband is made of cheap plastic that creaks and cracks easily. The pair I have split near the hinges on both sides and Sony was too stingy to repair it, even though it's under warranty. I would say go for something more durable, even if it costs more. Im still using the gold's just with duct tape on either end.
while it's very good for it price it lacks on build quality, mine lasted for 7 months, now i am using hd590 and i am loving it.
Nothing comes close to them for the price. They do feel flimsy, but my has lasted over a year+ and no damage yet. I find most of the gaming head set are pretty cheap quality.
Sorry off topic is someone here have problems with psn sign in?
Nope! Gateway MT6706 2008
And it's gone....
I got them. They're okay but sound quality really isn't anything wonderful. The surround sound while on PS3/4 is great though, best fake surround sound I've ever heard. Also comfort wise they're okay but are the least comfortable headset I own.
I tried out my cousins pair I like them just waiting for a deal.
Got them & I love them! Can't play without them now! Also a great price imo especially if you could find a great deal on them! I remember buying them last year on Amazon for $68!
Hell yes! Best money I've spent in years. Great sound, comfortable, wireless, just plain awesome. Haven't played without them ever since. A must buy. Didn't even read the article cause I don't care what their opinion is lol.
Highly recommend the pulse elite over the golds. Way better bass, louder and more immersive. Even without the bass impact, the bass is outstanding. The golds are good but lack bass and are not as loud.
Those sony's, I got em! And I wear em every day. From phone to playstation and back, 7 days a week. I even bought a matching nylon blue-white four pole cable. Fold-able headphone's are awesome! Gateway MT6706 2008
I have them, they are great. I use them on my ps4 and my Xbox.
I like mine, but have since moved them for small time use in the bedroom. I use my Beats to play Playstation now, which are AMAZING compared to PS's headset.
it's the set i have and i love it
