Xbox One vs. PS4 - Camera and Headset Audio Comparison

IGN went into party chat on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to see which headset and camera had the best audio quality.

wow didn't expect there to be that big of a difference between the two!

Probably mostly in part to Microsoft updating the port specifications, and audio codec.

Might've helped to have turned off the background user interface music in the PS4 headset test but the winner here is still clear regardless. I turned it off on my PS4 after the first hour though so hearing it in the background of that test isn't completely indicative of my experience.

The PS4 camera audio is surprisingly bad though, didn't expect it to be great but that was horrible.

So... This is bullsh..

I hadn't used the PS4s boxed in headset till today and it was clear as day. I was chatting with a friend while playing Resogun and we were both using the ear-bud and it wasn't anything like what was heard in this video.

I think IGN might have something interfering with the quality that isn't/didn't effect the X1.

People need to try it for them selves, I had no quality issues whatsoever today :/

Sony went that cheap route for the bundled headsets. Not surprised honestly. Kinect sounds almost as good as headset too. Good job MS.

Accidental disagree, my bad :'(

Cheap route? With the 100$ I save I'm actually going to buy a proper headset lmfao. Clearly Kinect has better audio, anyone saying otherwise is either deaf or just a troll, however I personally don't care seeing as I'll be using Astro's lol.

Not trolling will get disagree's but oh well the ps4's camera and headset sound kinda like one of those 70's sex ed videos

I like X1 sound quality in that test better.

How's the online for RDR2? I couldn't get into the online portion at launch. I hoped they'd improve it over time

Can't wait! Spider-man 2, Final Fantasy XVI, Baldur’s Gate 3, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and many more great games. 'Game of the Year' will be this year a difficult choice!

Alan Wake 2 and Lords of The Fallen should be in there too.
