There are a lot of Playstation 4 accessories out there that help you improve your gaming experience on the game console.
One of the most important gaming accessories that you should get is a pair of headphones.
Headphones are great because they really bring the immersive experience when you’re gaming. To truly enhance your gameplay, buy a headset that has a virtual 7.1 Dolby surround sound support.
Today, I am going to talk about the Playstation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset. This is a headset that has 7.1 Dolby Surround sound support.
But before I delve right into the features of this wireless headset, I am going to talk about the design first.
The Playstation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset has a very minimalist design. It comes with a Black and Blue color scheme with a pair of huge drivers on each side.
This wireless stereo headset comes with an included USB dongle for wireless access as well as 3.5mm adapters so that you can plug this headset on your other Sony game consoles such as the PS Vita and the PS Vita Slim.
If you want to tweak the different aspects of the wireless headset, all of the necessary controls are situated on the left side of the headphones.
There, you can find the volume controls and a power switch which also acts as a profile switcher when you use the companion app that can be downloaded from the Sony app store.
Aside from the volume controls and a power button, you can also find the mute button and the virtual surround sound toggle. The toggle can be used to enable the Dolby 7.1 Surround sound virtualization or the Stereo 2.0 sound.
Do note that whenever you plug the Playstation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset in your Playstation Vita, you can only use the 2.0 Stereo.
The Playstation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset also comes with a good microphone. You might be thinking where it is placed but you can’t; it is safely embedded in one of the large cans.
Some people do not like it because they do want to see the actual microphone in place but for the vast majority of the gamers, it is a dream.
Gone are the days where you get distracted because of the protruding microphone. Also, gone are the days where the microphone would come into contact with other things, making your life a nightmare.
Now, we are going to talk about the actual sound quality. When it comes to sound, the Playstation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset delivers. Even though it is not good compared to other premium headsets, for the price, you are getting some very good headphones.
It is also a treat when using it for watching movies. When you are watching DVD movies, you will be using the 5.1 Surround sound technology. But, if you’re playing Blu-ray files, you will have the option to enable the 7.1 Surround sound.
The battery of the headset should last 7-8 hours and it requires about 2 hours of charging time (from a completely drained battery to full).
The Playstation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset is a very good headset. It certainly does not have flashy features compared to other premium headphones, but for the price, it pretty much worth it for every Playstation 4 game console owners.
