PS4 System Update 1.60: Official Headset Support; Gold Wireless Headset Out Soon

John Koller's Avatar + Posted by John Koller on Feb 03, 2014 // VP of Platforms Marketing, SCEA

Hello PlayStation Nation! The next system software update for PlayStation 4 (version 1.60) will be available for download beginning late tonight, bringing support for the PULSE and PULSE – Elite Edition wireless stereo headsets to PS4. We know you’ve been patiently waiting for this update, which means PS4 owners will now be able to enjoy an enhanced gaming experience with 7.1 virtual surround sound and crystal clear voice chat with our official PlayStation headsets. PlayStation headsets are created for PlayStation gamers, by gamers – and designed to truly provide the audio that game developers intended. It’s truly how games were meant to sound.

I’m also excited to introduce the newest member of our headset lineup – the Gold Wireless Headset, which launches early this month. This new headset offers 7.1 virtual surround sound, custom audio modes created by developers specifically for PlayStation games, a hidden noise cancelling microphone for voice chat while playing online, customizable faceplates, and other features –all for $99.99 (MSRP).

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset

You can connect the Gold headset to your PS4, PS3 or computer using the wireless adaptor for eight hours of straight gameplay. The headset also is compatible with your PS Vita or other mobile device with the included 3.5mm audio cable. The portable, folding design and travel pouch make it perfect for playing games or listening to music at home or on the go.

The Gold Wireless Headset and the PULSE – Elite Edition are compatible with the free Headset Companion App, which hits PlayStation Store in February. The app allows you to download developer-created audio modes that are specifically tuned to enhance a game’s audio. Kicking off the custom sound modes will be Sucker Punch, who’s developing a mode for their highly anticipated PS4 exclusive inFAMOUS Second Son. In addition to these custom audio modes, the app also offers a variety of preset audio modes for games, music and movies, as well as a tool to create your own custom EQ mode.

For additional information on PS4 system update v.1.60, including how to update your system, please click here when the update goes live. Hope you enjoy the new features and keep the feedback coming. Greatness Awaits!

Like many others, I’m not thrilled about the fact that third party headsets are still not bluetooth compatible on PS4. Turtle Beach and others have been supporting and sponsoring your systems, games, etc. forever. You expect us to auction these off to Xbox One users to make a little scratch and purchase PS brand headsets?! Is a patch or update not possible? Just give an answer so we know where we stand, I’m sure you know how many of us want this inquiry finalized.

Sony don t forget u are there where u are because of us, and because of ours money, so dont play greedy games like dont give us DLNA suport or mp3 media play, video play etc……, with this politic u gonna end like microsoft………….
Can u give some reasonable explation why the updates donnt give us what we want, its because of money and pay services, thats realy stupid, im going to sell my ps4 and buy a ps3.
My mobile device have more compatibilites then PS4 and u call it NEXT GEN, NEXT GEN FOR VHAT?
FOR INTERNET PAYING SERVICES ????????I CAN HAVE THIS SERVICES ON MY PC………ISNT ENOUGH THAT WE ALL NEED NOW A PS PLUS MEMBERHIP TO PLAY ONLINE.
CALM DOWN SONY AND GIVE US WHAT WE WANT, SOME PEOPLE DONT HAVE BREAD TO EAT………

I rest my case… “There’s been a disappointing absence of wireless headset support on both of the newly released consoles. This PS4 firmware update is limited to just Sony peripherals, but it’s more support than we’ve seen since the console launched on November 15, 2013.”

Is it jus me or same for everybody. My sony pulse elite headset has static noise and a lil bit of popping noise during game play.

+ pyrocloud7 on February 4th, 2014 at 4:49 am said:

I’m grateful for the headset support, however there are two features that I feel are absolutely missing, the first being proper wireless support so I don’t get a message saying my wireless is disconnected constantly, even though I’m still connected, and the second being the ability to pause and resume downloads, I can barely watch Netflix when a DC universe update pops up, which is quite often :-(

+ Wollmonster47 on February 4th, 2014 at 5:03 am said:

This update is a joke! I bet sony worked 1-2 days on implement headset support and over 1 month to get sure dat only sony headsets work with this update.

My logitech g35 7.1 headset is still not working and a friends expensive turtle beach too. I was so excited that extendet headset support come with this update, but now i’m really ….!

that isnt fair. what about the Original Ps3 Headsets? and it had to be the pulse……

+ O-MADD-O on February 4th, 2014 at 5:32 am said:

Very nice but what about normal bluetooth headsets not all of us have the luxury of being able to afford to pay for these headsets or even like myself dont like wearing them, and im fed up of untangling myself from the wired headset eveytime i need to go and do something else in the house its just not user friendly lol, can you atleast answer mine probably hundreds of of others question about support or future update for standard bluetooth headsets thanks

+ coxy234 on February 4th, 2014 at 5:33 am said:

It’s good that Sony are updating the firmware, but this update is seriously lacking content.

I would also like to use my Turtle Beach PX5s. I will not purchase the Sony headset out of principle. There is only reason why other headsets are not supported and that’s profit.

+ IcedDice777 on February 4th, 2014 at 5:42 am said:

But what i Would like know is… Is the Gold trophy included?
Ok, never mind. I’ll grab my coat and hat and i’ll walk my self out the door.

Already got the two previous models, thanx for the update But i’ll pass on this new headset. I got a feeling that a platinum version will enter the planning stages soon.

Hello!
I’m eager to see:
mp3 enabled
when I hold down the PS button during a movie I’d like to be able to see the time displayed.
logging my controller into my account every time I turn the controller off is kinda obnoxious
youtube?

I like to think Sony will read this and maybe take some things into consideration.
I felt like my friends list was more easily accessible on ps3 and it was nice to be able to turn off the controller without having to surf through a couple menus. And viewing the time during a movie has always been important to me. Otherwise I’m super pumped for this update!!! Just wondering though; I thought that Turtle Beach was making the official headset for PS4. I just am not sure if I should wait for the supposed summer release of the Turtle Beach Official PS4 Headset.

+ vice350z on February 4th, 2014 at 5:57 am said:

cot dammit…DLNA support already!! I so miss streaming my music while playing like i did on my 360. How do they just think no one uses it and gets rid of it?? Also, what happened to supporting true wireless headphone use with any headphone? THought that was in the “next update” a couple updates ago.


467

+ Dodd23 on February 4th, 2014 at 6:02 am said:

this is awesome news. I can pull my pulse headset out of retirement. I just checked the update page on the playstation website and it is only showing update 1.52. I read last night it said “late tonight” does that mean when I get home from work, its gunna be ready to go? if it auto updates.

After the latest update my turtle beach px4 headset for both chat and audio no longer works. Anyone else having this issue?

I have the first 7.1 wireless headset. Would be great if it was also compatible.

+ twotrax4me on February 4th, 2014 at 6:20 am said:

So is the cable to the controller still required? If not how is it wireless if it still uses a wire?


471

+ LIL_B_IN_KC on February 4th, 2014 at 6:20 am said:

Will this fix any issues with other headsets like my turtlebeach earforce shadow. Problem is if i hook them up with the amplifier attatched the sound cuts in and out but if i bypass the amp and hook it up to the controller it works well but i have no controll over sounds like bass trebel chat only overall vol. Needs to be looked at sony i spent too much money for my stuu to work halfway. PS works great on ps3 so take that feature and bring it to Ps4 .

+ Akaruiwrx on February 4th, 2014 at 6:22 am said:

Oh lovely an update to support headsets… how about you remove the HDCP like you promised so I can record gameplay, That’d be swell… I mean obviously it can be done because there is ton’s of info on hdcp being a select-able option on dev boxes meaning you already have the know how. What’s the hold up?!

Golly I seen 1.60 and figure more would be added except for one single focus.

Scratch that, restarted and now they are connected.. have to post back later on quality, its been so long since I used them the battery is dead… at least we’re on the right track.. kudos to Sony for coming through.. now maybe you can tell me why the other account on my ps4 is always online? Even after restarting my wife always appears online in my friends list why?

When is the HDCP fix coming? Is that still planned? I’m buying multiplatform games (like Thief) on Xbox One so I can capture footage. It’s literally costing Sony my business – and I’d rather have them on PS4!!

I’m so psyched for this headset. One question sony I’m from Cyprus and I’m going to order this from amazon from America. Is the headset region locked.I mean will it matter if I connect to my ps3 that is from Cyprus.Will it work.

+ das7771 on February 4th, 2014 at 7:02 am said:

I am thinking about selling my ps4 and going back with a ps3. I am okay with the fact that there are little to no games for the ps4 right now, but I used my ps3 as my main blu ray/blu ray 3d player. I did not realize the ps4 does not support Blu Ray Play back…WTF…I moved to a more expensive console with very little features….LOL…I will probably take back the ps4, cuz I do not see sony updating this feature any time soon as they have not even metioned anyting about it. This update is a bit of a joke, people still having issues and not really an update at all in my book.

Will there be a hard case for these headphones made by Sony thats sold separately, if not is there one that you would recommend for these headphones?

My Pulse Headset will not go surround sound on my PS4. now I’ve tried on PS3 works fine but when i hook it up to my PS4 i only have mic audio.

now i’m not sure if this has been answered or not but how do i fix it? Tried just about everything i can think of!

Forgedglory I have the same headset as you. make sure in settings you have all audio going to headset, also on headset make sure you press the button on the top left hand side of headset for surround sound. hold it for about a half a second and on the screen your will see the headset surround symbol.

I’ve installed the new 1.60 update in hopes of getting my Wireless Stereo Headset (CECHYA-0080) to finally work with my PS4 but I have one problem, I’m not hearing anything through the headset! What am I doing wrong? I’ve wired them to the console and I have the dongle inserted in the USB port. Messages are popping up in the right corner seeming like it’s connected. Please help!
