PlayStation_Gold_Wireless_Stereo_HeadsetBack near the end of May (2019) my original PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset broke.  They were designed to fold.  Two small pieces of broke at the hinge.  Ducked taped it back together to get me though until I get a new set.  Tired to use them a few times after it broke but they don’t fit right.  Was very happy with the headset on how it works and feels.  So decided to go with the new model of the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.  It has all the same functions of the original.  Just smaller, lighter and don’t fold.  At first wasn’t to sure about them the ear cup seemed a bit too small.  However after playing a few hours and chatting they fit fine.  Haven’t watched a Blu-ray or Netflix with them on yet.  Think they will be fine with that as well.

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset Broken

Back in the summer of 2014 bought the original PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.  Used it all the time.  Not just for voice chat.  If I was watching a Blu-ray or Netflix.  They work great.  The thing is they are designed to fold.  Well the other day (May 25, 2019) picked them up and unfolded then and the left side hinge broken.  Two little pieces of plastic fell on the floor.  Wasn’t too happy.  So a quick job with some duck tape to hold the hinge together.  However they still work just don’t fit right.  The felt ear cup doesn’t sit flush with your head.  They will have to do until I save some money up to get a new headset.  See that the newest mode of the Gold headset doesn’t fold.  I guess they new it was a flaw in their design.

PlayStationGoldWirelessStereoHeadset.jpgHave been using the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset for about a year and a half now.  It works great, never a problem with it.  Review them back in September (2014).  So not review them again but want to talk about a feature I didn’t know about to the other day.  They come with a 3.5mm audio cable.  Which you can plug into the headset then the other end to pretty much any music playing device.  Did know that and try it out on my MP3 player, computer and a CD player.  What I newly found out that you can plug that into the bottom of the PS4 controller.  This cause it to work as an wire headset.  You can’t use the buttons on the headset but that’s not big of a deal.  Since you can use the settings with the PS4.  Have tried it and it works great.  This will come in handy because a few time while playing online the battery got low and died.  So I had to run a long USB cable.  Which is a bit of a pain.  So this is another reason that this headset is well worth the money.

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 7, 2014 by getbent57

PlayStationGoldWirelessStereoHeadset.jpgHave had my PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset for a few weeks now.  So it is time for a review.  First off they fit nice over your ears.  Each side is adjustable, they can move up and down.  Have played games, watched Blu-rays and chatted with them.  Playing Watch Dogs with them is great.  There is an app you can get off the PSN which lets you customize all kinds of audio level things.  All so some game have all ready have customized file you can upload to your headphones.  Watch Dogs had one so I tried it out. Pretty easy to setup.  The headset has a two mode switch.  You put the switch in mode two, plug them in to the USB and then click a button upload.  Very fast and easy.  Have to say it made Watch Dogs sound better.

All so tried them out with The Walking Dead season four Blu-ray.  The were prefect for this as well.  Being wireless it was much better than the wired set I use some time watching TV and movies.  Chatted online with them as well.  There are some good features with these.  You can just have the chat going though the headset or the game and chat.  There is are button that let you adjust how much chat or game sound is coming though.  Again this feature work awesome.  The battery lasts around six to eight hours is my guess.  A message will come on the TV saying the headset battery is getting low and about a minute later you will heard a loud beep.  Then they shut off.

If you are looking for a headset either for your PS3 or PS4 you can’t go wrong with these.  The work great and fit on your head just right.  They are well worth the $100.00.  However have seen the twice been on sale after I got mind.  So get your eye out for the flyers is your interested in getting a set.

PlayStationGoldWirelessStereoHeadset.jpgHave talked about how the mono headset that comes with the PS4 is not that great.  Well got my self a PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.  First off the packaging is very nice.  The headset itself are very nice looking in person.  The feel nice and sit on your heard comfortably .  Have not warn them for a long time yet.  Will be back with an update on that later.  Being wireless it comes with an USB cable to charge the battery.  The cable is supper short but you can use the USB cable that works with the Dualshock 4.


Have used then for about an hour at a time and they are pretty nice. They fit around my ears just fine.  Like every over the ears headphones the bar can get a be annoying so I have to re-adjust them every so often.  Have not tired out chatting with then yet.  They let you play the game audio and chat at the same time.  There is a volume buttons on them were you can adjust what is louder.  Or you can just run the chat though them.

PlayStationGoldWirelessStereoHeadset.jpgBack in late July talked about picking up the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.  Well I ordered myself one off of (as I am typing this August 10, 2014) they are asking  $92.84.  You can check them out > here.  Its a few dollars off the regular price, $100.00.  The reason I decided to buy was because the other day got to try out the party chat with in the PlayStation 4.  Used the mono headset that comes with the PS4.  While it worked fine.  Wanted something better.  Not a fan of these ear buds.  Just after a few minutes of use it started to hurt my ear.  With this new wireless one not only is it over the ear type.  You can listen to the game audio as well as the chat.  There is a built in noise cancelling microphone.  Once I get them will be back with some pictures and how they are to use.

PlayStationGoldWirelessStereoHeadsetThinking about picking up the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset.  Not only do they look very nice.  One of the features is it has 7.1 virtual surround sound.  As the name says they are wireless. It comes with a USB wireless adaptor.  Which you can plug that into your PS3 or PS4.  All so comes with a 3.5mm cable so you can plug it into a Vita or any thing what has audio out.  The other big feature is it has a built in noise cancelling microphone.  The asking price is around $100 at most places.  That might sound like a lot.  But a good pair of headphones makes all the difference.
