PS4 with 3.5mm x2 Type Headset... - Page 7

post #91 of 342

Just a quick update for anyone looking into PS4 headsets. I finally received a 4 pole adapter(headset buddy) that I ordered and the mic as well as the headset are now working perfectly fine on the PS4.  Im also using a rocketfish chat cable as pictured above which gives me the option to mute the mic. I think this set-up sounds pretty dang good for a little over $100 and Id prefer them over the $250 Trittons I had on my PS3.

Just a few questions for you:

What headset are you using?

Are you using a Processor? Like the DSS or Mixamp?

Something doesnt seem right here, can you please post a full diagram of your setup as well as what PS4 settings are used ie; Chat only, all audio, optical, DD, etc..as well as where the headphones and mic plug into.

This is the setup: 1st gen TurtleBeach DSS connected to the PS4 via optical, the DSS is powered externally so the PS4 doesn't use it as chat device, then the rocketfish headset cable connected to DSS. From the rocketfish cable the Turtlebeach PS4 chat cable connected to the PS4 controller and the headset used is the 2011 Astro A40 connected to the headphone in of the Rocketfish cable via a four pole connector. (That is what my son uses)

I just use the Astro 5.8 wireless MixAmp with the Turtlebeach PS4 chat cable and Sennheiser HD558 with the Momentum smartphone cable.

Edit. Will take screenshots of my chat settings and post them tomorrow.

Im pretty much running the same set-up as cmarti, please see below.

 

1st gen Turtlebeach DSS

Samson SR850 headphopnes

Zalman ZM-MIC1

Rocketfish chat cable,this came with a set of headphones that I bought on clearance from Best Buy for $10.

Headset Buddy 4 pole Y-adapter(splitter)

 

I have the DSS hooked to a optical cable from the PS4.

I have a USB mini cable from the PS4 to the DSS to Power it as well as give it the chat audio.

From there I have the rocketfish chat cable hooked into the headphone out from the DSS.

The Headset buddy Y splitter plugs into the rocketfish cable.

Last I have the headset and zalman mic plugged into the Headset buddy splitter.

 

As far as settings I have the audio set to Optical to get the surround through the DSS.

When you plug everything up and the USB into the PS4 it will pop up asking who using the headphones and reconize them.

As far as headphone audio settings I have that on CHAT audio only.

 

Also there is a newer post on Playstation forum where a guy uses a Logitech USB soundcard for a PC plugged directly into the PS4 and claims to get surround sound as well as chat, he also has a 12 minute vid proving it.

With the Rocketfish cable, are you plugging in the USB and headphone jack, or just the headphone jack into the DSS?

post #99 of 342

I have tried both successfully, it depends on how you want to power the rocketfish cable from the PS4 or the DSS is all. I also have an old razr AC that will power the DSS but wont power the rocketfish. I currently have the USB into the DSS to power both if that makes sense.

So Is there a solution to get the voice chat running on 5.1 headsets?

 

Got a coolermaster sirus s(analog) connected with the optical output of the ps4 connected with a sharkoon sound control unit.

Wait, theres actually a way of getting 5.1 surround sound on a PS4 using a logitech usb sound card? ..can you give us a link please? I wonder how thats possible since usually doesnt work and they are only recognized as a generic usb..
post #102 of 342

Ok I just watched the video again and I may have heard him wrong, the USB soundcard is in fact surround sound but Im guessing thats on PC or maybe Xbox. Not sure if it produces surround sound from the PS4, I apologize for posting this wrong. Below is the link with the video.

I can tell you that usb soundcards hooked up to the PS4 will use generic drivers/basic stereo, AFAIK.

That's odd. If I plug my dealextreme clip on mic to the DualShock4-jack, it doesn't recognize it at all. The party icon still says that there's nothing connected. Or do you hook it up with a 4-pole Y-cable?

 

This wouldn't be as half as bad, if my PS4 was able to split mic input and chat output. For instance: I'd like to use my FiiO E17/E09k instead of my mixamp via optical in, while still being able to party chat. Unfortunately this doesn't work at all, because as soon as I connect the cheap earbud mono-headset which came with the PS4 to use it as a mic-only, the party chat audio not longer mixes with the game sound but goes through the mono-headset of the controller. But I don't want this, as I already have my Beyer 880's on, not to mention how incredibly uncomfortable I am with earbuds. Jeez, even my xbox360 can do that, even though the party chat and game audio mix sounds horrible most of the time.

Any idea how I could get things work? I just can't find a solution in the ps4-settings for this...

The patch to make the Sony Pulse Headset work with the PS4 is due to release "early this month" according to some higher-up person at Sony. Hopefully this means we will be able to have the features of the 7 year old PS3.
