Sony needs to seriously upgrade the settings on the PS4, because it's a MASSIVE step back from all the things you can do with the PS3.
As you said, you can't have both the usb function on the ps4 as well as the controller doing chat. You have to make a choice. This is whay worries me with the Mixamp 5.8. The 5.8 doesn't have usb chat function (without the PS3 chat cable, which I don't think works...and I don't even have). I bought the Ps4 turtle beach chat cable which should function off the PS4 controller's audio out, BUT, SINCE THE STUPID PS4 WON'T LET ME LISTEN TO GAME AUDIO THROUGH THE OPTICAL OUT AND CHAT AT THE SAME TIME THROUGH THE CONTROLLER... I MAY BE SCREWED.
This leaves me to wait until Sony patches in multiple audio sources at once, or use the Mixamp Pro when I wanna chat and have virtual surround at the same time. Back to the cable clutter.
Did your Mixamp need a firmware update in order for it to work right with the PS4? My A50s did, and they they now work 100% both chat and audio.
Im actually VERY interested in the 5.8, since it would pretty much turn any headset into a wireless one, but Ive had doubts about it working with PS4. Had it been PS3 I would already know it would work perfect, because the PS3 had the settings to do so.
Super frustrating, the latest news was that the next PS4 firmware update would come right around Jan 1st, but who knows if they'll include the features we want.
So for now, Im stuck using my Astro A50s, which are not really that bad IMO. When they do update the PS4, I wont hesitate to go back to my PC360s or soon-to-be MDR-7520 with Beyerdynamic Mic Combo.
