PS4 with 3.5mm x2 Type Headset... - Page 9

Finally, the update is coming, its 11:20pm Eastern time here and still dont have it.

 

Im beginning to get a little worried that the only thing this patch will do is make Sony brand headsets compatible, lets hope they dont screw us other headset folks over with this one...

With sony's decisions lately, I have a feeling it will be a lame update. I guess I should try to stay optimistic though.

The update is garbage. Fixed nothing for me. Still can't use optical sound and voice chat via usb at the same time.

That is outside their scope, they want you to use the Sony headset.

Absolute waste of fing time...Thanks Sony, for trying to force people to buy YOUR headset..

 

As you can see, the update did nothing...for people in relation to this thread.

 

Wow, being an early adopter is one thing, but man, If I knew the PS4 would only have 1% of the options the PS3 has, I would've probably never got one!!:mad::mad:

 

It took them 3 months to add support for their OWN headsets, who knows how long now (if ever) it will take them to add anything else!:mad::mad:

PS4 it only does less than the ps3.:rolleyes:

 

Looks like I'm forced to buy the new gold edition headset. Sucks that I can't use voice chat. But I don't want to spend my money on that ****.

It kind of seems that less settings are becoming more and more apparent on electronics. It seems like people think less settings is easier to navigate or something.

 

I had similar troubles with my Wii U and trying to figure out why my processor was only processing Surround Sound for only a couple of games but not for my favorite game. The settings on the Wii U are so user friendly they became useless. So I had to play in stereo.

Well, for now Im left using my own "Y-Cable Intercept" method (shown in post #7) to use my K702s and Beyerdynamic Mic. AFAIK, its still the only way to get chat to work when using a dual 3.5mm headset setup (ie; headphone w/mic, PC350, PC360, MMX300, ATH-ADG1, etc) to work correctly with the PS4, AND have simulated surround. THAT is the point of this thread.

 

It works good for the most part, the extra jumper cord gets annoying and Im sure adding a Y-Cable in-line with your headphones doesnt increase SQ. From what I can tell, it doesnt really hurt SQ, I just have to raise the volume since it noticeably decreases when I add in the y-cable.....

 

Again.....stuff I never had to deal with with PS3..

There's only one way to get the 3.5 mm headsets runnuning with voice chat at the same time. Wait for an usb sound card that is compatible with the ps4. Problem is you can't tell which one is compatible.

 

I tried this one on my ps3. No luck. Maybe this will work on the ps4?

 

 

 

Maybe someone will release a decoder box or something to get other headsets runnin. People told me that the Astro MixAmp is the way to go.

You can use any generic USB headset adapter to make a dual 3.5mm headset work with the PS4, just plug in the mic and headphone plugs into an adapter like this:

and then plug it into the PS4 and set it to "All Audio" This setup works, but you will only get stereo sound.

Useless If you use a 5.1 headset.

Im not understanding the issue. Depending on what you're using, if you have a Mixamp, you can just use optical audio, and use something like the Turtle Beach ps4 chat cable for voice chat. Works like a charm. Better with a Mixamp 5.8, because the only cord you're running is between the RX unit and the controller.

The turtle beach chat cable does not work with other headsets. How should it work with my microfone cable?

That is the same thing I ask myself... I have suggested that solution many times... The Turtle Beach ps4 chat cable and MixAmp 5.8 combination works perfectly with the PS4.

Is your headset designed to work with the Xbox 360? If the answer is yes then yes you can use the TB PS4 chat cable.
