1.7 added mic level adjustment which is a HUGE step in the right direction....

 

Problem is, there is still no way to direct incoming chat through Optical/HDMI while you have an external mic attached via USB. Its been the issue all along, thats the reason for this thread!

I dont like it....you will lose any sort of Surround processing. Plus, it looks like it only supports older TB headsets.

Folks like me with 3.5mm x2 wired headsets (Like the PC360, PC350, MMX300 etc) are still SOL.

So why should the people buy this device? In an article about the ps4 upgrade kit they said you can keep the sound via optical. So If you buy this device you will only get stereo sound. You can easily just by a crappy usb sound card.

 

I wait till this device will be available in europe so I can send it back if Its not working.

Hey red so I tried hooking up my Sreelseries Siberia V2 with a astro mixamp, it did not work???? Ran a optical cable from ps4 to my Sound Blaster Z card, I get sound no issues there. Now with the mix amp all I wanted to do was use it to get the chat function.

 

Hooked up mixamp to the ps4, connected the 3.5mm mic plug with a 4 ring 3.5mm adapter to the astro mix amp, still could not get any chat???? I also tried to connect to the controller, still nothing??? 

 

I am done trying this, I really want to use my sound card on my pc because the the is 100% better than going though the ps4 audio, even with my Steel Series H wireless headset the sound card audio is better. Dont get me wrong the H wireless is a great headset, but a pc sound card with alot of features really brings out the true audio for BF4 in my opinion.

@ PinkFloyd

 

Dude there's no way at the moment to get the voice chat runnin. I've tried like you every single possible way to get the chat running. Tried even different usb sound cards, hooked the soundcards via pc and other stuff.

 

The easiest way for Sony to fix the problems is that 5.1/7.1 sound should come through usb.

 

But hey you can't expect from a gaming company If they release a console with x86 architecture/amd gpu that the console can output 5.1/7.1 sound via usb /sarcasm

Playstation blog share has now a ps4 section. English is not my mother language so I wanted to post this playstation blog share idea.

 

Improved headset support

 

5.1/7.1 sound via usb
optical sound output and usb mic/usb soundcard support at the same time
optical sound and mic support via dualshock 4 jack

 

So is this proper english?

If you want to use a pc headset on the ps4 you need only a usb soundcard. problem is that the ps4 only outputs stereo sound not 5.1 sound or virtual 7.1 sound.

Why don't you try the new turtle beach device. It's much cheaper but I don't know If it will fix your voice chat problems.
