- Overall it is reasonably comfortable.
- Very nice button functionality. ex: control party chat vs game sounds
- Headset if fairly lightweight and long term wearing is ok.
- I feel that it is a reasonable value in today's overpriced headset market.
- Mute button is a simple one press.
- The ear muffs could be softer and a little less plastic ish (not a real word. lol). My Cowin SE7 headset is the ultimate "clouds" on the ears for long headset use.
- The buttons are trash. Way to thin and tiny. The rocker chat/game and high/low volume are hard to differentiate between them. I'm not asking for huge buttons, but something double the width of the current ones with a bit more prominence on them, especially the on/off and rockers.
- The headset lighting is a very tiny blue light and located on one side near the head band. It's great to be discreet, but it would be better if it was a bit more visual to know if it is on, and on mute, etc. Better color scheme too (Ex: Blue=on, Orange=mute, Red=charging, blinking red=charge me) Currently its only blue.
- The overall headset is quite large and almost too big for my smaller (male) head. I can't see any female with a slight build wearing it properly. The top of the head to the earmuff position is just within tolerance for me (I'm a thin 5'8" guy). A bit smaller head and the nonadjustable ear pieces would not be sitting on the ears properly.
I've owned the original Sony Pulse headset from the PS3, along with some Razer sets, and I've always found them ranging from horribly uncomfortable to manageable at best, but this pair beats them all for comfort. They're super light and as a result don't need to squeeze as tightly.
Sound quality is quite clear. Not audiophile-grade, but the PS5 Tempest Audio does sound pretty impressive when properly implemented in games. I wish Sony would implement profiles for when you want 3D audio turned on or off, as not all games are great with it, probably because only some notable games were patched for it. New PS5 titles like Spider-Man do a great job, but others can sound a bit spacey. This isn't a headset problem, but specific to PS5 3D audio. It'll likely sound great in all PS5 games going forward. I'm happy with clarity and sound for music.
Mic has been clear so far too. Being able to turn monitoring on/off to check is really nice.
1. This headset has a monitoring button, so you can hear your voice come through the headset while you talk. This helps for people who tend to raise their voices a lot when their ears are covered or talking on the phone;
2. There is a button on the headset to adjust the balance of sound between voice chat and game sounds. If you're having a hard time hearing your teammates, increase the voice chat balance. This will in turn lower the game sounds volume, but this is preferable for me since I prefer to have clearer voice comms over louder game sounds.
3. This headset is significantly more comfortable to use than the ear bud that comes with the PS4 or cheaper alternatives such as the turtle beach recon, and the voice chat quality (both sending and receiving) is much better than similar products.
4. These are plug and play. Just plug in the Bluetooth dongle and turn the headset on. It will automatically connect to the PS5 and you're ready to game and chat with friends in a matter of seconds
5. They are compatible with both PS4 and PS5, but I haven't used it with my PS4 yet.
6. These are best used wireless, but can be powered with a sufficiently long usb-c cord while in use and there is a cord provided that connects to the PS5 controller so you can continue to chat while the headset is wired.
1. I've read a lot about how great these headphones sound, especially with the "Pulse 3D sound" feature but I'm personally not impressed. Obviously these won't compare to a high end sound system or studio reference headphones, but the sound quality is still muddier than I was expecting for this price point, and I didn't feel like that Pulse 3D sound was really all that great. It just reminded me of other low-end generic 5.1/7.1 headsets. It's good enough for hearing games sounds while talking with people, or if you can't/won't invest in a proper receiver and sound system. But if you really want an immersive sound experience, there are better options to invest your money into.
2. As far as I know, there is no way to separate voice comms from game sounds with this headset. So if you just want to hear voice comms come through the headset, but use your surround sound or home theater audio, it is not possible. Most people probably won't want to do this anyways, but sometimes my spouse hangs out with me and watches me play while I'm streaming a game and chatting with friends. She's not able to hear the sounds of the game while hanging out beside me if I'm using this headset. This wasn't an issue with the PS4 and the earbud as chat comms would only come through the earbud while game sounds came through my sound system.
3. You must use the provided USB Bluetooth dongle. Not a huge issue, but still an annoyance for anyone utilizing the limited number of other USB slots for other accessories such as PSVR, external storage devices, docking stations/charging cords, etc.
