    Nice Accessory

    I was tired of having to hit the PS button and go into menus to adjust audio while using a wired headset, then I ran across this little device and decided to give it a shot. I'm happy to say that it is just what I was looking for! It controls your volume and also has a mute button on it. It is a much welcomed addition to my gear. Bear in mind that this does use three AAA batteries (supplied) so it will add some weight to your controller, but it isn't that bad. It doesn't really get into the way either and it did not make any scuffs or marks on my stock controllers so I felt confident enough to put it on my custom Colorware controller and it did no damage at all. In all, I'm pleased with this accessory. It is inexpensive, plug & play and simple to use.

    Decent alternative to menu navigation...

    I ordered this, as an alternative to being able to make quick adjustments on the fly, as well as quick mic muting, without having to unplug my headset. This works ok. The supplied batteries were dead on arrival, no big deal, but it didn't seem too promising, as a first impression. Regardless, I got a new set of batteries and installed them, and instantly noticed that I was having connection problems, as if the batteries weren't making a solid connection, I disconnected the controller from the headset, and pulled one battery out, connected it again, and all was fixed, temporarily, I experience this problem often, it's not a deal breaker, but can be discouraging, I would be upset, if I paid full price for this item, but considering I was able to unload $15 in rewards certificates, I didn't mind paying the $5 plus shipping that it cost me.

    Does exactly what I was hoping it would do!

    I got this audio controller because Apple Earpods and other headphones w/ mic designed for Apple do not work when directly connected to the PS4 controller. I am using this device with my Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless headphones connected to the PS4 controller via the Apple mic cable you can get from B&W. When channeling the full audio from the PS4 to these B&W's, everything sounds rich and detailed. Adding the mic cable enables talking during multiplayer games. All of this works flawlessly with this audio controller add-on. Highly recommend!

    Not reliable

    I purchased this adapter in order to make things easier but that did not happen. The main issue I had with it was that no matter what cable I used, loud static/popping sounds would be transmitted to everyone in my chat party. This would happen at random times, even when I had my PS4 controller placed on the couch, not being moved. Also, the microphone sensitivity would decrease whenever I had this adapter connected which meant that every time I'd use it I'd have to go on the PS4 settings and readjust my microphone sensitivity, not very convenient. Other than that, when it decided to function as it's supposed to it was pretty good. The button layout felt comfortable and it's very light even with the two AAA batteries it requires.

    Broke after a week

    No knock on BestBuy because my order arrived on time and in good shape. This PS4 adaptor is sooo cheap though. Beware. Mine broke after less than a week of use. I have a turtle beach adaptor for my xbone controllers that blows this out of the water. It was only $20 so I wasn't expecting much but I also wasn't expecting it to break after less than a week of light use. Just to add that when you are playing w/ this adapter it kind of interferes with your grip on the back of the controller because it's so bulky. If I could go back I would find something a little bit better made even if it means spending a little more.

    Great alternative to the more expensive headsets

    The adapter works great and is affordable. I already own earbuds with a mic that I like using when I am using my ps4 so this adapter was a great buy. I can control the volume without having to go to settings. I can mute my mic. The controls for the adapter are within easy reach and adjusting the setting while in game has a natural feel. Not awkward or like I have to stretch my fingers to increase or decrease volume or mute the mic. It was just a great buy. I liked it so much I am going to buy another for my wife.

    Works as advertised - very good product

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I don't know why this is an online only item. They should stock this in the stores. The standard Dualshock 4 audio output is very low and has a hard time running some large headphones. This has a built in headphone amp that boosts the audio output and will allow your headphones to get much louder. In addition, it gives you volume control and a microphone mute button right on your controller. I am going to order a 2nd one for my other controller. Note: It will only turn on when the controller is on and it auto turns off when the controller turns off.

    Pleased - glad it doesn't use DS4's battery!!!!!!

    This is a great product. The reason it must be powered is because it has an amplifier built into it. I am extremely pleased that it doesn't use the DualShock 4's (DS4) battery. The controller's battery is the same as the one used in the DS3, yet now supports an always on LED light and a capacitive touchbutton, so it already dies very quickly. The audio controller turns any ordinary mic enabled headset into a sound system that completes more functions than almost any other product (As in complex headsets. Most of them are missing at least one feature included here).
