PS4 and Sony Pulse Elite headset?

44 Replies 19,387 Views Created 10-11-2013

I have done a fair amount of research on this topic and I have yet to find a concrete answer even after reading the FAQ Sony has released. It is my understanding that the Pulse Elite headsets will work after the 1.5 launch day patch? Is this true? Thanks in advance for any info!

Thats Wrong still.

The FAQ specificly state that they won't work after firmware 1.5 patch...

Only Third party USB headsets will...

 

This is because the USB dongle they use is not a gerneric USB RF dongle. Its a locked down SCEA payed for design dongle. the headset requires the hardware to run the Game audio to USB using SCEA designed Coding to send the Virtual 5.1 audio to the headset...

 

You will have to wait longer for it to be supported. 

 

There is also no date for the PS4 version of the pulse manager app..

No they won't, just 3rd party usb headsets I think. They will be sorted out eventually but there is no date yet.
Games,Movies, Music, Life, it's all good.

Yep...

Will Wireless Stereo Headset and PULSE wireless stereo headset, which are currently sold for the PS3 system, work on the PS4 system at launch? What about other wireless headsets?
The PS4 system will support the Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset and Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset following an upcoming PS4 system software update. Existing wireless headsets from third-party companies that use a Bluetooth connection will not be supported on the PS4 system, though most existing headsets that connect via USB will be supported following PS4 system software update 1.50.

The FAQ allready said NO

 

There are no plans to add any current gen BlueTooth mics to the PS4...

Only current USB mics will be enabled...

 

Future brand new Bluetooth Mics are expected to work... IF they are licensed by SCEI...

 

 

The main reason that mono speaker and mic won't be supported is likely because it used 3 Bluetooth channels to connect to the PS3. but it does not matter as they just not supporting any BT mics from this gen...
