Using the gold wireless headset for the pc.

19 replies 39303 views Edited Feb 14, 2014

I can't figure out how to get the new PS4 gold wireless headset to work on my pc. Is there a website I can go to for detailed instuctions. It didn't come with any software, so I just plugged it in my computer thinking something would pop up.

 

Please help.

Here are some steps for you to get it working as well as enhance it.

 

1- Plug in the USB device to your computer

2- Right click your Volume menu from your Task Bar (Little area in the bottom right of your screen)

3- Select Playback Devices

4- Locate the Playback device labled Speakers (Wireless Stereo Headset)  This should be on the bottom of the list.

5- Click Speakers (Wireless Stereo Headest) to highlight it

6- Click Set Default 

 

Now your Gold Headset should be recieving the sound.

If you ever need to go back to your speakers just follow the same steps but instead select your previous speaker and select Set Default again

 

There are a few extra steps you can take to enjoy the headset a little better.

From Playback device 

 

 

First go through steps 1-5 again to have your speakers highlighted in the Playback Devices menu

1- Right click the headset for a drop down menu

2- Select Configure Speakers

3- Select Stereo in the first option then click next

4- Select Full range speakers (Front and left) then click next

5- Click Finish

 

You also should do this

1- Right click the headset for a drop down menu

2- Select Properties

(Optional) - Rename the headset from "Speakers" to "Playstation Gold Headset" so it is easier to spot in your Playback Devices

3- Select Enhancements Tab

4- Check Bass Mode

5- Check Virtual Surround

5- Click apply then OK

 

You should be all set after that.  You will control the volume of your headset through the buttons on the headset itself.

Hopefully this helps you out.

Hmm I am still using Windows 7 but this might help you

 

Right click on the speaker in the task tray next to the clock on the desktop.

Or go into control panel (charms bar->settings->Control Panel, or winkey-x->control panel) And then click on Hardware and Sound.

No problem, hopefully you get them working.  They are rather nice on the PC.  My wife is using them right now to listen to music and the quality is amazing.  Enjoy the headset.

Yea I've done all the recomended changes above, but mine still cut in and out on PC.  It makes it impossible to listen to music or use them at all on PC.  Really dissapointed! Anyone know of a fix for this? is this a pair that's defective from the manufacturer?  I JUST bought these from Sony's Amazon store.
