Unboxing the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset [VIDEO]

If there’s one thing that I loved about E3, it was finally getting to try out the new PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset. I’ve been wanting to grab a pair for months, but never really had the opportunity to get it. Using a pair at E3 changed that, making me put aside some time and cash to invest in these new headsets.

Below, you’ll find a quick unboxing of Sony’s latest in their line of PlayStation-branded headsets as well as a comparison to the PULSE Headset which came out not too long ago.

Have some questions about the headset itself? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll get back to you!

    The headset comes with a internet microphone am I right? Sorry If you said it in the video I’m short on time I’ll read your potential reply when I can

          • ColonelGrand

            What do you mean? If your implying what I think your implying then your argument isn’t valid

          • Kevin L

            Not implying what you’re thinking I’m implying.

  • I use a MadCatz F.R.E.Q.7 Headset on my PS4 and Xbox One, it’s mainly for my PC but it’s cool how you can use it on other platforms as well 😀

  • steview130

    Gonna purchase a set of these to use on my ps4 and xbox1 reviews on them seem fairly positive for a sub £100 headset.

  • Adecentboy777

    I use it on daily basis and I tell you guys this device is such a bless! 🙂

    • bizzy gie

      I almost bought this for the 7.1, but the mic quality was just too bad. Opted for the Ear Force PX4 headset. It’s only 5.1 ss but the mic quality is far superior although wired which defeats the purpose of a wireless headset.

  • Steve6cupcakes

    Will the USB adapter work on the wii u to or will i have to use the headphone jack?

    • Jessey

      You’ll probably have to use it with the headphone jack but I don’t have a Wii U to confirm. Will you be getting the headset?

      • Steve6cupcakes

        Yes I will be, Seems like it’s pretty good for the price.

        • Jessey

          Well then you’ll have to let us know if it works with the USB on Wii U!

          • Steve6cupcakes

            I was planning on getting it from amazon since they have it for 79.99, free shipping with prime. Is there any reason I should get it from bestbuy over amazon?

          • Jessey

            Just depends on when you want them. You could have them immediately at Best Buy or wait for shipping with Amazon.

          • Steve6cupcakes

            Sadly there’s no bestbuy close to me, so i’ll just get them from amazon. Thanks for taking the time to talk with me. 🙂

          • Jessey

            No problem! If you have any question, just hit me up.

          • Jay-Russell

            I’ve got a Wii U and the headset, I’ll try it out today when I play Wii Fit U, and let you (U… Sorry, bad joke), know!

          • Gamerz Blvd

            does the headset work with wii u? chat and stereo

  • Great Unboxing Bro.

    Bought a set of these a couple of months ago, no lag, integrated mic, works on ps3 ps4 and vita, can be paired with headset app on ps4, gives a virtual 7.1 surround sound, noise cancelling and fantastic value, on zavvi.com for £60 at the moment 😉

  • Tay

    Bought a pair last week. Sound is amazing but the integrated mic makes you sound muffled. The range is very limited too like 10 feet. I took em back put 50 with the money and got sum afterglows with 100 ft range and a mic i can actually be heard on.

  • Is this the one that comes with the Destiny Bundle? But it’s white in the Destiny one?

  • Arkham Knight

    I love this headset and I rarely play without it, my only complaint is the battery wife but it’s no big deal.

  • Hawk1290

    I just use my Steel Series Siberia v2 with a splitter- they don’t pump out a ton of sound but for a $2 fix I’ll never complain. Either way great unboxing.

  • steview130

    Bought a set today for £70 and I’m well impressed. Used them on both my ps4 and x1 and there flawless. One thing I have noticed now that i have a mic for my ps4 is that the voice recognition for commands on ps4 isn’t much better than xbox1. Neither of these two consoles have a touch on Siri or Google when it comes to voice recognition.

    Bought a pair of these about two months ago and there are absolutely spectacular they really heighten your gaming experience well worth investing in a pair of these !
