Has anyone tried jacking in a pair of headphones in the controller for the game audio? If so, is the sound quality servicable? Not getting my PS4 until the 29th (EU), and my GFs parents are coming in that weekend (OMG the timing) to hog the TV, and my other screen doesn't have any speakers and the PS4 doesn't have analog out. So, opinions?
As someone with an XBONE preorder (though I plan on getting the PS4 sometime next year) this makes me bummed that Microsoft didn't include this feature. It's not a huge to deal, though, as I have an Astro mixamp anyways, but... still. That's a pretty awesome feature.
I have it, and use my Vmoda Bassfreq earphones, Koss Portapros, and Klipsche S4i's with it and it sounds great. Like 256-320kbps MP3. Very bass heavy. The surround sound effect holds up pretty well, maybe not for detecting someone walking right behind you, but someone shooting you from far away left and right sounds rightly distant. And doesn't have that airy, hollow, echo-ie concert hall effect of DSP surround/dolby headphone/prologic2 on things like Windows media player,.
Here, I recorded the sound into Audacity as a WAV file. Bear in mind, it recorded the volume a bit too quiet than what it really sounds like, so maybe turn up your speakers/phones on your PC now to hear the quality.
