PS4 Gold Headset Review

Sony recently released its newest headset for their Playstation 4 console called the Gold Wireless Headset or alternatively the Wireless Stereo 2.0 Headset (Europe). Despite the difference in names and packing for the US and European market, both are the same product which is a brilliant sounding, sleek and stylish 7.1 headset. Equipped with a Virtual Surround Sound (VSS) feature and a Voice/Chat switch this headset can give you not only a better sound experience when gaming but also a real advantage in multiplayer shooters like Call of Duty: Ghosts which we’ve tested with the headset and had an easy time to locate approaching enemies by the sound of their footsteps.

What’s in the box?

The headset comes with a bluetooth receiver for your Playstation 4, a charging cable, an AUX cable to hook it up to your phone or computer and a carry bag with a PS logo on it:

We’ve compared this headset to a 5.1 surround system by Harman Kardon and we can say: it’s even more fun to play with this 7.1 headset! The action is right on your ear and you can also download additional sound modes from Playstation Network to enhance your specific game experience or just stick with the preinstalled second sound mode which is a bass-boost mode. The built-in microphone makes the whole headset look very sleek but we would have appreciated it if you had more color choices or at least the choice between the blue one and a black one.

Check out more reviews and don’t miss out on this great headset for the Playstation!
