I am curious also, I have a pair of Astro A40's I hope I don't have to do anything with the make it work.

Edit, does it even have optical? ._.

I know the revised 360 canned it.

PS4 ports


Here's the back of the PS4 - note the optical output. Smiley Happy

If your headset uses the Optical output, it will work with the PS4.

 

If it uses the A/V Multiport, it will not (the PS4 dropped the A/V Multiport).

My Pulse headset uses a USB to connect with a system, doesn't that mean it should be compatible with the PS4?

It should be, but Sony hasn't specifically stated so, yet.

 

It works perfectly with my MacBook (which also has USB 3.0), so the USB on the PS4 won't be a problem.

In this case then, it should obviously work. If not they have probably decided to do a firmware update, blocking old headsets. -_-

There's also the headset port on the PS4 controller, for those who use a wired headset all you will need is a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter

I'm disappointed they dropped the AV out
