    Now that the new firmware is out does than more than just pulse headsets will work wireless?

    anyway recommend me a decent gaming headset usb or wireless that sounds great and the mic is decent on it too.

    much difference between 5.1 and 7.1 for headsets?

    Might as well see what the reviews of the new Sony ones are like.

    I have Astro A50s. They're excellent but not cheap. They do work on all consoles though which is nice.

    Can't say I personally notice much difference between 5.1 and 7.1, but then I'm not super duper hardcore FPS guys. I suspect some might claim 7.1 offers you greater positional awareness when being shot from behind etc.

    Sorry to slightly hijack this thread, but I've also been thinking of getting myself a headset. Is this new Playstation one likely to be worth the money or could I get a non Playstation branded one that's just as good but cheaper? And it said it'd work on PS4,3 Vita and PC so what's the likelihood of it working on 360 and/ or XB1 as well?

    So with the pulse elite will you not need to plug in the USB dongle at all with the new firmware update? I might buy the elite.

    They have already been mentioned, but the Astro A50s are very nice.

    Personally I've got a set of Pulse Elites, and recently picked up a set of the new PX4 wireless set from Turtle Beach. Quite like the PX4 headset as they are dolby digital, and compatible with the PS4, PC, and after TB release the chat cable the Xbone too.

    I'd have loved a set of A50's but couldn't stretch. Settled on the skullcandy plyr1 which are really good, wireless 7.1. Developed with help from Astro.

    @dogmanstaruk

    Can these also be used on One without chat? Would love to play Forza on Dolby Digital headphones.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    @beastmaster Until the cable comes from Turtle Beach it uses Kinect to chat.

    looks good but I am assuming this will only work with the ps4 via USB? might as well get a cheaper headset that does the same thing. seems you pay more for wireless.

    the tritton 720+ are looking good but for that price could just go pulse elite which are also wireless.

    Are there any headset options worth going for in the 50-70 range? Can't really justify 3 figures for a pair right now...

    CEX sell the Sony Wireless Stereo headset for 45. I ordered it on a whim as I have loads of vouchers. I'll let you know the condition etc. Sending back if they look dirty :)

    Been doing abit of research and the a40 is looking good, I don't mind wired as long as it doesn't go through the dual shock4. A50 too much. The skullcandy player1 are looking good to. Those PX 4 look good to for the price but I don't want any headsets that go through the ps4 controller, it coverts all sound to 2 channel mono apparently.

    Some good impressions on the new Sony wireless on GAF too.

    I've found a few good reviews for the new Sony Gold Wireless Headphones, but can't seem to find anyone in the UK stocking them. Thought they were out today

    Anyone got hands on experience with the Gold Wireless Headphones yet? More specifically, can you use them with Skype - via PC - and the PS4, at the same time?

    Ideal set up would be, game sound from the PS4 (maybe connect to the DS4 via 3.5mm?) and then connected to the PC for Skype chat - presumably over the Bluetooth dongle?

    I'm not sure how easy they will be to pair with a pc. The 'wireless' part of the headphones is over a usb dongle and not bluetooth.

    And anyway, getting your hands on one at the moment looks like it'll be quite tricky. Unless you want to pay import tax or a massive mark-up from ebay no one in the UK seems to be stocking yet. I've been keeping an eye on the amazon.co.uk page but no updates so far - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Official-Gold-Wireless-Headset/dp/B00HVBPRUO/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2C14IXMLM83CA&coliid=I1OKZPKGJCX8DP

    Yeah, I meant connecting to the PC via the Dongle. Is it not a USB Bluetooth adapter then?

    I've decided if i'm going to spend 80 on a headphones, I'd rather spend more for better ones that I plan on using for years.

    Really want the skullcandy plyr1 but nearly every review and user feedback mentions that the mic is crap on it, too quiet and their friends are always telling them they cannot hear them.

    Going to settle on the astro A40s

    @xuiton

    You may have just spent some of my money! they look nice. Any reason to get the 40s over the 50s? (other than price)

    Anyone know the difference between the Turtle Beach PX4s and PX5s? Even TB's own website won't tell me, as the compare products screen doesn't work :/

    if anyone is still deciding on their headset I settled on the astro a40s and they are great in every aspect. Work great on a PC too.

    My thread on the headset, which I own. I was in the USA last week, so I bought it.
