What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sony PlayStation 4 Platinum Wireless Headset
  • The rubber on the adjustable headband on the headset which rests on your head is great because it doesn't push in
  • These headphones are without a doubt fantastic, they fit well and easy to adjust.
  • It have noise cancellation, I can not hear much around me when I am gaming with these.
  • The headband is the type of rubber you make Balloons out of, after a few hours of messing with that on your head you start to feel a bald patch.
  • Not sure if the noise cancelling works too well, chat members could hear my loud PS4 fan.
Sony PlayStation 4 Gold Wireless Headset
  • It adjusts easily, charges quickly and sports the same familiar control layout.
  • These headphones have mechanically adjustable ear cups that clicks with each adjustment and it's easy to find perfect fit.
  • Superior in sound quality, comfort and noise cancelation.
  • Although not active noise cancelling but it has excellent natural background reduction.
  • The sound bleeds out and it doesn't cancel any outside noise.

  • Headphones with built in mic and they are great quality.
  • The mic quality is very poor so I would not recommend them for anyone who wishes to record their voice or stream etc.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony PlayStation 4 Platinum Wireless Headset
  • The sound through PS4 using the Virtual Surround Sound was amazing.
  • Good surround sound quality, especially with the few '3D' sound games such as Uncharted 4.
  • Chat/game sounds balance dial works well and is nicely implemented.
  • VSS and 3D audio work amazingly good. Highly recommend to use this features.
  • Mute button isn't that straightforward to find for when needed quickly.
Sony PlayStation 4 Gold Wireless Headset
  • Wireless surround sound and wired 3D audio capability (PSVR) amazing features.
  • Battery last for like 8 hours and this is pretty good value.
  • I like the fact there is not a microphone wire in my face getting in the way, it makes these a very easy pick up and play headset to talk to people.
  • It uses a USB dongle to communicate with PS4, and being a Sony product I hoped the BT would work stand alone.
  • The buttons I would have liked to have felt a little more sturdy given the brand reputation.
