Welcome to the community. No, wireless chat using APEX is not supported.

So using Bluetooth won’t work. The only way to use chat would to use a wired headset in the controller?

Long overdue for Consoles to support the Apple Airpods for example.

For use with APEX? Yes, headset attached to the controller.

If you would like to bypass APEX and are on PS4 you may be able to use a non slim controller and a USB headset direct to the console. You should be able to use the Sony Gold bluetooth headset as well, this wirelessly connects to the console.

So if i buy a virtual surround headset that connects to my controller the surround option still works?
Atm i have a stereo headset that works as intended so i guess my controller should be the correct one?

I am quite sure the controller can not produce surround. Its stereo.

I generally play solo with a wired AudioTechnica ATH AD700 headset plugged into an Astro Mixamp Pro. No mic.
When playing with my mates I plug in a wireless Sound Blaster Recon3D Omega. It has a mic.
Both D/ACs plug into my PS4.
Where's Half-Life 3?


XIM Apex, PS4 Pro, Allreli T9+, Swiftpoint Z, CM Swift-RX XL, Audio Technica ATH AD700, MixAmp Pro, LG 27UD58.

MSI Z97i Gaming AC, Intel Core i5 4690k@4.2GHz, Corsair H100i, EVGA GTX780, 16gb G-Skill RipjawsX@2000MHz, XFX ProSeries (Black Edition) 750w, 3xAerocool Dead Silence, Cooltek W1, 3xSamsung Evo 500 SSD, WD 1TB HDD, Silverstone SST slot-load DVD, KustomPC braided cables.

And if you've read this far, you too are a genuine geek, my friend!
