From what I have been reading, it is supposed to work with the next patch but couldnt find an actual source that proves that, but I have heard that evey single headset in the world that isnt a Sony Headset will work.

I am in the same boat, I only get to play when the kids are in bed, and the only headsets I own are the PS3 Pulse and Pulse elite headsets, so I get to play with the volume off.

Thanks so much for the quick reply. I really hope it does work as I love these things even though they are the cheaper ones. Strange that non sony ones you mentioned will work. I guess when I get the PS4 I will pop in the USB stick and pray.

 

I mainly use it for CoD Ghosts as sound whoring is absolutley huge in this game and a must when playing.

quick blurb I found:

 

On PlayStation 4, a launch day firmware update - version 1.5 - should see most USB headsets used on PS3 up and running just fine.

"All our USB headsets should receive both game and chat audio once Sony pushes an update to the PS4, which it says will be available on day one," Turtle Beach said. SteelSeries' director of audio, Dan Radin, nodded: "This is the situation for all USB headsets, not only SteelSeries'."

Decent set of earbuds with a mic. Plug it into the controller and run the game audio through them. Just an option until the patch is out

For now the Sony Wireless Stereo Headset isnt working, when you plug it even with the newer version 1.51, it's not supported.... Thats kind of sad because almost all Third party headset works but the Wireless headset made by Sony arent working.... How sad is this? And does the Wireless Pulse Headset with the Bluetooth usb key that you plug into the Playstation work? Because I still have a warranty on my headset that I bought 10 months ago so I would exchange them for Pulse and pay only 50 $ more dollars for it?

if they have a line in port on them you can use them with the controller til the usb suppport patch comes if not them use any smartphne or beats headsets they all work through the controller.  Watch my video. i have posted a million times on here.

Wow that is so lame if my USB Sony brand wireless headset does not work. I'll try them anyway and I am not having the PS4 for another month so maybe thhey will patch this.

 

I do have a super nice set of noise cancelling Bose headphones I will then just plug into my controller. I could care less about not having a mic as I never play in parties and usually mute the other players anyway.  (I guess that will work?  Bose surround sound headphones with 1/8th inch jacks that goes into say an iPod etc.) Thanks.
