    I had the previous version of the same headset. The previous headset cracked easily around where the earphones connected. This headset has a different setup than the old one, so I hope Sony fixed the problem. So far, so good!!

    I bought these to replace my aging gold set. Looks great sounds great but with one flaw. They didn't fit well. The earpieces were not comfortable and the strap at the top presses on your head. After am hour or so I had a headache. I returned them and bought the golds again.

    These headsets are cheaply made, When I used mine for the first time there was something loose in the left earphone. I turned out to be one of the circuit boards was not screwed down completely. Not worth one and a half times the cost of the Gold headset. Also I cannot use certain features of this headset due to an echo created when I'm in party chat on my ps4. The Gold is 10x better in my opinion and costs less. All you get for this overpriced headset is that it looks cool with the stainless steel headband.

    Default sound quality is great. I downloaded the headphone app and applied a few different themes but found them all either lacking or annoying with exaggerated bass or highs. Removed and went back to default and I'm happy. 3D sound is nice - especially with the PSVR The mic is pretty bad though. Voice sounds really tinny. I have a really deep voice and folks say when I use the mic I sound high pitched. Haven't had it long enough to comment on the construction. It's really confortable but I'm suspect of the hinges on the ear cups. Hoping they don't break

    Ok so I have Sony Gold headset and I'm comparing it against the gold. For the price I was expecting a better headset quality and sound. Sound is on par with gold, nothing special. The 3D only works with certain games so it's useless. The headset feels very flimsy. The arm that bends near the cups feel like it's gonna break after a couple months of use but I'm not keeping it long enough to find out. The ear cups presses really bad on your ears. I used it for 4 hours of game play and I had the worst ear ache and I never have ear aches. So I returned it the next week. It's certainly not worth the money. Maybe $75 but that's still pushing it. For now I'm sticking with Gold and maybe I'll go and buy Astro A50 Wireless but the reviews kinda bothering me. I don't wanna be disappointed after spending $300 to find out it's a pos

    I got one and I'm happy with it, I'd prefer more pronounced buttons and I'm still getting used to figuring which does what without looking, but this is the headset that was actually made for your PS4, unlike many others I've tried (Logitech, steelseries Arctis 7, etc) I had turtle Beach stealth 400 before and the build quality was trash from the start but the sound quality was fine and it did what was important to me, separate game and chat volume. It started bugging out on me and I said I definitely wasn't getting another TB so I was trying out other wireless headsets to see if they can fit my needs even if they're really made for PC. They can't. This one can as it's made for the PS4, and even tho it doesn't advertise it enough it does have a game/chat balance where I can fully mute one or the other. Just mute master volume if I want to mute both. And I was concerned if I'd still be heard clearly without a boom mic in my face, my friends say they have no problem hearing me so all my fears about this headset were allayed. I only don't like that the mics are on the same side as the clicky buttons... Everybody doesn't need to hear me adjusting my volume. . TL;DR Pros and Cons Pros: Great audio. Comfortable fit. On screen indicators with PS4, unlike all other non Sony headsets. Chat/game volume balance, can completely mute game audio or chat audio when you want. Great build quality. Mic is clear enough according to my friends, couldn't tell I was on a new headset without a boom mic in my face. Cons: Mics are situated on the very same ear cup as the buttons, so my friends will hear every time I adjust my volume or about to mute my mic. Buttons and not wheels. Only indication of a muted mic is behind my ears, or an on screen indicator that disappears after 5 seconds. Not as much range as other headsets I tried, can't go to my kitchen with them anymore. And this maybe nitpicking but having to select All Audio with these means I can't use them and have spectators in my room hear too, since nothing will be coming from the tv

    Bad Product Overall

    I bought this headset when it first came out, after the New Year, and I regret it on all levels. For a Sony product, even though it has bass boost, it's really poor and doesn't even come close to Turtle Beach. It doesn't boom at all. The headset it really only designed to fit a small head. If you have a medium head or bigger, forget it. These things will clamp your skull like you're in a vice. After only playing for 30 min, your head hurts and that pain is like a lingering headache. In addition, it really traps in all the heat because of the over the ear and fake leather covering on the ear pieces. So now you have discomfort from squeezing your head and you're overheating. I have to take Tylenol after playing with these. What you get, the price is way too high. They should be in the $75 range at very best. They are solid and good overall heavy duty quality, but the sound is lacking, even after you mess around with all of the different sound profiles through the app you download. Controls are ok but they are located on the back edge. It would be more convenient to put controls on the outside of the headphones for easy location. They sync pretty fast with the PS4 and PC, which is good. So, definitey choose any other product out there because this one is not worth it. Been using them for months and I wish I could get my money back.
