Pros: Works wireless with no latency, comes with a wireless dongle.
Good for 7.1 surround on PS4.
Should work on the PS5.
Works on the Nintendo Switch dock, allowing wireless sound.
Has good range, if that matters.
Can pair well with a PC using the dongle.
Durable and very light, good build quality.

Cons: Battery life is short (6-7 hours)
Micro USB charging (takes forever to fully charge 4-5 hours)
Has no bluetooth capabilities.
Terrible voice chat communication. You have to mess with the settings to turn up the mic.
7.1 surround is not present on PC, you need to use a PlayStation to activate it.
The cables it comes with are very short.

Personal opinion: Good only for use with a Playstation or a Nintendo Switch dock. It provides great quality at 7.1 for all games. If you need good wireless PC headphones, go with the sony wm-1000xm3

Those ear ups don't have much padding. All that you see is mostly plastic with a small layer of soft leather like material. There is a little bit of a surround sound but it messes with the audio to where it looses quality a bit. Probably worth the 60 however.

I have the previous generation Gold headset. The one that folds. Anyone that has had both that could tell me if there's a difference in audio between them?

Here is a quick summary - all 'phones used on a ps4.


I owned the prev gen (blue) Gold headset and so did my brother. His blue one broke about a year ago, and mine just broke three weeks ago. Here are a couple observations (he replaced his with the gold v2, i replaced mine with the SS as noted below):


Gold v1
+ great mic (never any complaints from party)
+ good integration with ps4 OS, good sound for 1st year
+ good in-game sounds
- bad volume/chat toggle and volume design - without a physical button you never know if you're going up or down
- cheaply designed, after 1year didnt work great.
- comfort - not comfortable after about 45 minutes, garbage ear cuff.
- Transmission range not very good (important if you have a wall around the corner - super irritating as to get a drink of water in adjacent kitchen conversations would interrupt)


Gold v2 (e.g., this deal gold edition)
+ Design - Slightly better design but still feel a bit cheap
+ Sound - Better sound especially in Apex and other FPS where you need that spatial awareness
+ Battery life - Slightly better battery life
- Sound transmission/range - after moving more than 15' from the transmitter the sound would cutout (issue with this one is a usb stick vs. a usb transmitter with a leash)


My replacement: Steelseries Artis 7 -
+ Comfort - Insanely more comfortable, especially for long sessions.
+ Range - Much better range (transmitter has like a 40+' range and goes everywhere in my apartment)
+ Quality - they are built much better and don't feel as plasticy/cheap (of course double the price...)
- Swap from headset/TV - This has been a manual game. Could be doing something wrong but doenst seem like a way to automatically swap back and forth when the headset is off (I have to swap output
- Mic - I've had numerous complaints about the mic - I needed to adjust it in the actual PS4 settings and the actual hard settings didnt do anything. Seems fixed for now, but one of the more irritating issues.
- Weight - I notice these can be a tad heavy. I'd still take it over the other issues.

Overall, at this price it is super tempting to pick up a backup pair at $60, but that's the inner cheapo in me. If you're on a budget, these are decent at $60. If you can afford it, check out the SteelSeries I noted above.


I've also heard a bunch of positive feedback about the Turtle Beach series too.


Overall, I'm just super irritated I can't use my $500 bluetooth Sennheisers with a 20+ hour battery life and amazing sound and have to buy a separate headset for my PS4. Really hate sony for this.

I recently replaced the ear pads on my Gold v1's with an after market I found on Amazon. It provided an instant improvement in comfort. But I agree, the original ear pads were terrible and even started peeling, hence the replacement.

These sound terrible and I think the only advantage is that they're wireless. Astro A10s sound better — fuller and less tinny — and are much cheaper as well. They dropped to $25 on Black Friday weekend and retail for $40. These are comparable to $15 wired Chinese no-name headphones, just wireless. Amazon Basics headphones sound better.

Except you can't pair Sony's xm3 headphone's with the PS4. Believe me, I've tried.
