Does the virtual surround work with movies? I have never been able to tell the difference when using both 2.0 and the platinum. Games are fine.

Gold is better in my opinion. I’ve had it for 3 years and no problems. Very nice and dependable

The new style PS headset were poor next to the older pair.Sound was okish butvthe style and comfort was bad. Ended up going on. Amazon for a reduced price Astro gaming A40. Same price as the platinum when I bought on Amazon. Very dissapointed in sony. The PS3 pulse pair had better sound quality.

RogueGhost GamerFTW the Pulse Elite is by far their best headset

Forgot to mention, the Sony Platinum has an advantage over any other you'd mention due to the fact that some game developers designe their game to sound differently in them (with the 3D audio and all).
Abdullah B (1 month ago)
YggdrasilAE Thought you were a troll first, but turns out you're a real audiophile. I see a lot of complaints about the bass and mids, and overall performance in gaming headsets compared to a 'Better' headsets like the ones you mentioned. But it doesn't bother me at all, in fact i prefer gaming headsets like the Gold/Platinum over those because of the 'Gaming' features such as the 7.1VSS and 3D sound. I wish you won't go over telling me that these are gimmicks cause i tested them myself. Verdict: I'm going to use my gaming headsets for gaming so i wouldn't mind if it preforms badly in music or any other area.
YggdrasilAE (1 month ago)
Hmm basically any other pair of headphones :D. I tend to use my V Moda LP2's/M100's amped with a separate clip on mic like talk show hosts use... Or The V Moda boom mic from V Moda... So I get better build quality and better sound... Finally at times I'll use my Sennheiser HD600's for a really good sound experience in games when I'm playing them for the first time or in not in a party... I can also use a clip on mic with them too so yeah.. Or the Sennheiser BT4.40 with a Bluetooth Dongle so I can use them like a PlayStation gold headset. My point is gaming headsets are meh overly bassy bad mids ect. Try Hyper X Cloud Alpha they're wired but built better.

If you all just save your money and buy the logitech G933 for Ps4 or Astro a50s for ps4 you wont have to watch reviews. Trust me. I've bought them all.

I liked older headsets. Ones that allow you to blow your eardrums out if you wanted to. These all have limited volume.

Spawn Cap agreed. There are still some studio headphones out there that you can do permanent damage with

thumbs up for this review, just got the platinum and it's worth it,, the sound is great both for gaming and music and as for comfort it's fine for me nothing i can say, thanks gamesky really appreciate your review...
Mrtscrp30 (5 months ago)
i definitely believe the platinums are superior to the other 2 ps4 headsets , but all they are is a polished version of the Gold headset, i get so frustrated with the windows attitude of product releases with all companies. release half engineered crap and let me pay for medicocre quality improvements and expect me to cheer for a revision to what should have been a stellar product from a reputable company.?????

Hank Greene (5 months ago)
I bought the gold headset recently and found out that it uses up both of the USB ports that are on the actual PS4 for the adapter and the headset charger. That leaves me needing a USB to charge the PS4 controller and not having a USB port. Is there a solution to this besides using a separate USB port aside from the PS4 or a separate charging station for controllers?
Eric*** (5 months ago)
another nice review, it made up my mind guess i'm going for the platinum for my ps4, thanks...

To improve the mic quality just connect the headset to the controller with the HDMI cable and it sounds alot better

I just got the Gold's a few days ago and they are absolutely perfect. The Surround sound works great on my PS3 for Netflix and Gaming. I don't think I would spend that extra money.

Nice video man. You almost had me sold on the platinum until you mentioned that surround doesn't work on the pc. I appreciate that tho, I would have been irritated to buy them and then find out that surround doesn't work.
Jedadiah Tucker (6 months ago)
well that sold me, ive bought 3 of the golds now, i love that headset. however ive bought 3 sets because i keep breaking the hinges. i live in a apt with pretty loud neighbors so i tend to fall sleep with my headphones on. i use them mostly on my pc cause screw 30fps my ps4 is a blu ray player now.

El problema es que aca en Argentina no son simplemente 60 dólares. El gold cuesta $2000ar y el platinum $4200ar. Es el doble!! Entonces nose si dejarle todos mis ahorros a sony por algo que muchos opinan que no lo vale, o invertir en los gold pero teniendo en cuanta que quizas me dure dos años como mucho

I have a platinum headset and is not going to be comfortable after 3 hours of playing because the rubber silicon on top will hurt the top of your head.
Dus Doe (7 months ago)
I own both for years now and I use the golds 90% of the time . They are the cheaper pair but sound better , I mean a lot. Better IMO . Both are top tier and you can’t good wrong ..Oh I also have the platinum dual mic. I don’t mind speaking with ppl not over them , plus the golds can be adjusted to be louder then you’ll even need a mic to be. oh the platinum are bass heavy , insanely bass heavy. Sony’s attempt at dual shock headphones. So with the bass and tight fit (and I’m only hat size 7) they are too much. The golds I put on and never have to think adopt them

juusukun (9 months ago)
Thanks for the video but I want to clear up your misunderstanding of the virtual surround. It is not done physically so the amount of space inside the cups for your ears has nothing to do with it. It's purely software, it can be done with earbuds. Little differences are applied to the sounds, since something in front of us sounds differently based off of the way it bounces off of our earlobes compared to annoys that would be behind us. It also adds delays, typical stereo only has audio coming out a single Channel to simulate noise on that side, whereas virtual surround would have the noise louder in the side it is supposed to be on, as well as milliseconds earlier. Which is how our brain figures out where sounds are coming from in real life.

Nice video bro!!! I'm struggling with my friends hearing me with this new PlayStation gold headset It's definitely the buttons! I just want them to be more accessible and don't want them to hear me fumbling with buttons Toggle or slide would be epic And can't tell weather or not I'm upping chat or game Mostly I want to ask why can't you use the battery power to boost the headset when connected to iPhone pandora Thanks for listening to me ramble I'm only watching you because I'm really ready to buy another headset more user friendly And you popped right up Not afraid to spend just want the best Ps great video I'm definitely gonna watch you from here on out

Got the platinum in the mail yesterday, tested out for a couple of hours and so far so good. Soundwise it's comparable to my sennheiser HD 598 (my baseline to compare to other cans) and sounds more like a GSP 300 (which is also great on its own), while not as clear and airy as the senns, one of which is open, it does sound pretty close (the mids and highs are a tad muddier though). Not being a bass head the platinum sounds OK to me in that departement, not overly bassy, not overly recessed, a bit less balanced than the senns overall but not fatiguing in the long run. Now the main feature i bought this for is the 3D audio, even if it's quite limited in scope right now given the small amount of games that support it (and let's be honest here, it should not be limited to just the expensive platinum cans, being a HRTF algorithm processed by the console itself...). I fired up uncharted 4 for the testing and i must say i'm impressed. Positionnal cues are spot on with the added benefit of being able to tell the sound source's actual elevation and distance, something that does not work so well with traditionnal 7.1 simulation. In other games the VSS is good, though not as good as the GSX 1000 which, with the excetpion of 3D audio (and good old EAX), blows away the competition when it comes to simulated surround. Did not have the occasion to test the microphone yet, but i suspect that the quality is satisfacory.

I've had the problem of the cracking around the sides for years and have finally bothered to look up a review on the plat headset because I thought it would just have the same crappy plastic as the gold but I am impressed that they bothered to do something about it and so I am definitely going to get it when money is good.
