[Q/A] HyperX Cloud Alpha Question
« on: 05:38 PM - 12/28/18 »
My girlfriend bought me this headset today but when I plug it in to my PS4 controller I have no sound thru the headset. Does anyone know why this might be?

APEX supports controller chat using slim/v2 controllers. This type has a lightbar built into the touchpad, are you using this controller type?

Unfortunately XIM4 does not support controller chat but there are other options available. PS4 Chat options using XIM4 with any controller type or using XIM APEX with a non-slim controller:

Use your headset with a second controller that is not connected to XIM for party chat

I bought the HyperX usb soundcard and it seems to be working now! I've yet to test the mic in a chat party tho.
