While they sound great, I can't recommend these. At 3-months, the foam inside the ear pieces came off. Then at 7-months the headband broke in the center, so they don't stay on my head very well anymore.

Steelseries Arctis 7 is great for PS4, docked Nintendo Switch, and PC

These threads innevitably turn into everyone complaining about them breaking. I've had mine for a year, use them regularly and they are exactly the same condition as when I purchased them.

No idea what you animals are doing with yours. Fat sweaty heads? Rage throwing while gaming?

LOL

Although my white Gold headset from 2014 is still going strong, I can see some truth to the breaking issue (particularly at the middle of the top of the band with the old version). That happened to my roommate's pair which was in fact due to his head being fatter (and sweatier) than mine while we raided and PVPed extensively in Destiny 1. His earcups were also pretty nasty.

But yea, continually pulling the headset apart will induce more stress to the plastic headband. The effect is more pronounced with a larger head. Wish it had a metal skeleton/headband but oh well, can't complain at this price point. It's not the most durable headset out there, but it certainly isn't fragile either imo. Better than the old Pulse headset that would crack at the thin side joints.

Agreed! I remember identical comments about the original gold PS4 headsets when I purchased it. Still going strong 4 years later albeit some unpleasant yellowing on the white cloth.

The 2018 ones? I don't think those have been out a year. My original non 2018 ones broke at the headband from normal use rather quickly. Never dropped or anything. My head is average sized. $20 skullcandy headsets still never broke after years of use. Don't recall any other headset breaking at the headband like that before for me.

I don't tend to complain about them in threads or anything but I saw your post. They technically still work since I put some strong tape over the break which seems to hold it together. Reminds me of the flex tape infomercial lol.

I liked them outside of the breaking so I am not opposed to getting the newer model ones if the headband is better for the right price.

My turtle beach elite 800 has been great for years. I got it refurbished on Amazon. Itll only work on ps4 though.

I had the silvers and they broke at the head band. Sadly these are the only headphones besides turtle beach that make it a point to put in sidetone/mic monitoring on the ps4

After about 3 years, my original sony gold headset started falling apart. The pleather from the ear cushions flaked off and would end up all over my neck and ears. I had to reglue one of the cushions back to the headset. The blue inner lining on the headband cushion has separated and is also cracking and flaking. They only went from my head to the ottoman next to my seat for charging but I did wear them for hours on end. I just received the updated black gold headset. I hope it lasts longer.

Wait, are you saying that people that spend too much time on their PS4 might be a little bit out of shape..... just for the record I don't have a PS4, but my son is getting one for Christmas this year......This physical specimen will not be using it though——-it's my new pick up line: "ladies, I don't have a PS4, come get yourself some of this"

My og white golds are still going strong as well but the fake white leather is starting to deteriorate and gets all over me. Whatever if they work they work.
