PS3 --> PS4 HEADSETS CONFUSION

24 replies 323 views Edited Nov 18, 2013

I have the PS3 Original Pulse Wireless Headphones (USB), and they are "not supported" by my PS4.

As Sony said, they pushed an update to make headsets compatible - although even after downloading the update, I am still getting the same "not supported" message.

Is this an issue that will be fixed?

What can I do about this?

 

Thanks.

Only USB Headsets are compatible. If your headset uses a USB Dongle for Wifi or is bluetotth or a combination of that, it will not work. They have not pushed the full patch out for headsets yet. So if you have a wired headset that is just plain ole USB, It will work. Otherwise, like the rest of us, you gotta wait for this "Launch edition" PS4 to actually be fully prepared for the launch that already happened

if you use a male 2 male 3.5 mm cord to connect the pulse elite to the controller it will work. you have to change the headphone settimgs on the ps4 to all audio. this will give you game audio and chat but thats about it till the update. oh you dont need th dongle for this to work.

I have a wireless headset for my TV. It just plugs into the stereo analog audio out part. I guess I will do that for the time being. Only downside is, I will only get stereo output as I will not be using my surround sound system. Not nearly as good as using the gaming headset, but what else of an option is there? Ya know?

Yes it works fine. Make sure it's plugged in all the way and the mic isn't muted.
