Since the XIM cannot handle the headset on a PS4 I have been scouring the net looking for a way to connect my Turtle Beach PX5 wireless headset on the PS4 and finally found it! These headsets use the fiber optic connection for the game sound, which works fine. The issue was the BT microphone. As everyone knows Sony does not allow anyone to use unapproved third party headsets, especially the BT headsets. You can however use a USB headset and microphone.

Here is the work around for the BT issue. You will need a USB BT dongle that is compatible with the PS4 that does not require software and drivers to be loaded on the machine in order to work. There are several out there. The cheap units are just that, cheap. The sound quality is intermittent at best. There is however a dongle available that I have confirmed works and has great sound quality. It is the Sennheiser BTD 500 USB Dongle. It costs roughly $60, and for good reason. The hardware is top quality and is build for top end sound. When you plug it in it automatically goes into pairing mode. Once paired with your device it will remember it. The PS4 will see it as a USB headset and not a BT device.

Thought I would share this in case anyone else may benefit from this information.

Dupe post. Dupe solution.

Get a Creative BT-W2 BlueTooth transceiver. It's $25 US cheaper than the Sennheiser. Works on PS4.

Lol. Yes. Unfortunately for you guys the microphones will never work as it is not supported by Sony. The only microphone that will work is on the Bluetooth adapter if you bought the one that comes with it and if they do come with it they are often trash. The one feature I miss the most on ps3 is to use your own Bluetooth headset. Unfortunately, you gotta buy the one sony wants you to buy.

I use the BT-W2 specifically for the mic.

Are you using Turtle Beach PX5's? I am able to get sound just not the mic.
The mic only works if i use a 2nd controller and party up with friends.
Anyone got any headsets they would recommend as i am sick of trying to
get these to work  >:(
