Any suggestions on a gaming headset? I am looking for one to be mainly used for PC but would also like it to work for PS3/4. Also does wireless make a difference in quality of sound? I am looking to get a wireless one if I could would be a lot easier though I do not know if PS3/4 supports wireless headsets.
Looking for a gaming headset.
Since you mentioned you want it to work with the PS3/4, apparently the new PS4 "pulse" one from Sony is actually meant to be a pretty decent headset for its cost. It's gotten good reviews from places, can be used in any device and has some sort of downloadable sound settings for using it with the PS4 that lets devs customize how you'll hear the game through them. How many devs outside of the first party use that I dunno, but they might be worth looking into. I've been looking to test out a pair myself.
I got the Gold Wireless Headset by Sony for the PS4. It is totally awesome for the PS4. Not sure if it works on a PC,but it does plug into a USB port for connection though. Yep it does work on a PC. here's a link http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/02/14/playstation-gold-wireless-stereo-headset-review
Ignore the review score. I totally love them
Here's something I wrote up a while back about various headsets and sound cards.
The standard goto these days seem to be Astros. Pretty much, just get a pair of those unless you're really into the quality of the sound in which case, you're kinda boned because most real nice sounding cans don't have a mic.
@jamin724: I can only speak for the A40's, the first and only premium headset I have purchased. They have the A50's now, which I imagine are better, but I cannot say personally.
The A40's are fantastic, the only real drawbacks have been:
- Price ($250-$300)
- Batteries (takes 3 AAA and goes through them pretty regularly)
- The headphones also plug into a receiver that is pretty bulky. It can clip to your pocket or belt, but it is by no means as convenient as a fully wireless headphone.
I really like my Astro A40s and the A50s are essentially the same model, but wireless, and work on the PS4. It may be a bit too pricey, though, at $300.
Agree with this. Really are amazing headsets. Pricey yes, but it's a one time purchase that will last you longer than your PC probably:)
