Save for Astro A40 , worth it

do a40s work with ps4? chat and everything? without other adapters and etc? going over each headphone that was suggested

astro is crap, dont buy it
the sony headset has better audio quality for less money

read what publix said before me :)

How is the surround sound audio positioning on the Sony headset?  Are they open or closed ear?

do you know if gold will perform just as well? sony gold wireless stereo?

i'm asking because i want to purchase from bestbuy and not a online retailer such as amazon/newegg because as much as i love them and thank them for everything i got from them, i dislike not liking a product and then having to go through the shipping and processing part of returning and etc... where bestbuy is right down the corner and i can get it from them whenever and return whenever...

sucks because i actually want to give the sony stereo 2.0s a try but they don't have it i don't think... i only see golds...

and i actually wanted to purchase astros as well because i honestly think they look better than the sony ones, but at this point i'm looking for performance and i think to everything performance>looks...

i bought a logitech g930 to test it out and it works great but the sound is so low on the ps4 that i'm going to return it and swap again... hopefully for the sony gold from bestbuy or if not then i guess i'll have to order the 2.0 online... (praying that i don't have to return/rma if i get it online)

At bless up its VSS 7.1 bit only works in wireless mode.
Wired is stereo. In ghosts against BOTs with no dead silence is was perfect I could tell distance height everything, it was basically everything you would want out of sound positioning. They're closed cup.

@JJJYMXR There is only one version of the Sony Gold Live headset 2.0
Here in the UK they don't even have the "Gold tag" I thought there were two versions, but its clearly just a marketing scheme..

after reviews and testing i'm not sure what's going on with the mic..

i'm either told the mic is garbage or the mic is clear...

i need the mic to be clear and i also need the headset itself to be clear with good amount of bass... as i listen to both music and play games as well...

the sony 2.0 seems like a good candidate for me but i need to make sure they actually work and are clear...

any how i'll be purchasing the "gold" idk and testing them out and hopefully they get the job done...

i like the logitech g930 like i said but the sound is so low on the ps4 and i need something louder and i'm hoping the sony "gold" 2.0 can give that to me...

thanks!

The mic isn't perfect it's not a studio quality sound, but its good enough for gaming.
I've not tested the MIC on PC, but why would it sound different to how it does on PS4?

I'm not sure what the hardware is called but whatever converts your voice to a digital signal could be lower quality in the PS4.  There could also be the fact that it's simply nothing special but better than the PS4 mic that you can buy for the system while be ing worse than the average mic you may encounter a PC user using.

I'm not sure, but it's like even 7.1 only works on ps4 and not PC. If you look up YouTube videos on mic tests for the headset you'll see what I'm worried.. Static and muffled noise...
