[Q/A] Can Not Hear Sound Through Controller Ps4
« on: 02:14 PM - 05/22/18 »
So I set up my xim apex. Followed all instructions and finally set it up. But their is one problem! If I try to plug in my headphones into the controller while using xim apex, it does not work and their is no sound. I think the problem is that the xim apex is emulating the controller, and the keyboard/mouse has no headphone jack :(. Pls need help asap..

Note: I know I can just use speakers, but with headphones you can soundwhore much better :)

Welcome to the community. Is this an original or slim controller? APEX only supports chat using slim controllers.

Sorry, you will need a slim controller for chat to work with APEX. Otherwise you could use an option below.

A USB Headset, a Stereo Headset and Y cable connected to a USB Sound Card, or Sony's Bluetooth Headset. Here are some suggestions that may work.


USB Sound Card with Y cable included.

Bro I went through this hassle and I tell you, even though it might be expensive get the razer kraken usb headset PS4. It works perfectly!

No, that can't be used.
