When it comes to picking a console headset, many users face the problem of the incompatibility of a headset and their console. We have already devoted our article about the best gaming headsets for Xbox One to this problem and its solution. Now it’s high time to touch upon this problem taking into consideration the peculiarities of PS4. Let’s first list the two main advantages of PS4:
Bluetooth is not an issue, unlike Xbox One. Here you will easily connect any compatible wireless headset without using dozens of adapters.
Its extensive compatibility and a special app allow you to connect to virtually any device, and so hundreds of users across the web abandoned brand Sony headsets.
Microsoft and Sony have long been at war and the compatibility of consoles and headsets is not the only battle where Microsoft is crushingly defeated. Enough of pondering, though, it’s time to move on to the actual products.
Top 3 Best Gaming Headsets for PS4
PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset -The best wireless gaming headset
Let’s traditionally start with the brand name models. The Wireless Stereo Headset is that very item of which the Xbox One owners are envious. To confirm this, you can read over 5000 customers’ reviews on Amazon.com. It is light wireless and convenient. Thanks to the mobile earpieces the headset can be adjusted to any head, and their sufficient diameter will provide for comfortable gaming. Only the battery life is insufficient as the claimed life is 8 hours, and in reality the headset works for only 6-7 hours. Perhaps, that is what will give you reason to pause the game?

HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset – The best wired gaming headset
Cloud is a familiar to many gamers brand. The company is renowned for manufacturing the headsets of great quality for extremely affordable prices: this very model costs ~$64.97. In our case it is the first and best alternative to the brand wired Sony headset. Only the microphone causes complaints, as it is too old-fashioned. Trust us, you’d rather have an old-fashioned anti-popup filter on a flexible arch rather than a poorly built plastic analog.

You’ve taken a loan to buy a PS4, and now you can’t do without a headset, then this is your option.
