Out of curiosity, is yours a Disc or Digital PS5? Just wondering if maybe it’s an issue with the Digital version. I’ve seen other reports of the front port not working correctly for other headset dongles as well. Good to hear it’s not affecting everyone though.
Either way, the USB 2.0 hub workaround works fine for me, and it actually keeps the dongle from sticking out past the front of my entertainment center so it doesn’t accidentally get kicked/broken when walking by or something.
I have the disc version.
