Looking for advice for a gaming headset (for the PS3/PS4)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just getting tired of moving my Astro's from my PC to the TV every time I want to game on either the TV or the computer.
So I am in the market for a new headset to go either on the PS3 & PS4 or to the computer.
I currently have the Astro A50 headset, anyone know of any headset with equal or better sound quality that:

1. Uses optical input (and would prefer a pass through optical output but I can live without it.)
2. Simulates surround sound
3. Is wireless

Would like to hear from people who actually own suggested headsets, not just hearsay.

Ones that I am currently looking at.

Turtle Beach Phantom limited edition CoD Ghosts themed (not sure if there is a plain black model or whatever)
Astro A50's (If I don't find anything worthy to replace my current set)
And the worst case scenario: Sony Pulse Elite (Just a USB dongle, not sure if sound quality is good.)

Any suggestions or advice would be great. thumb.gif

Seriously, not one person has any insight on this? I sure picked the wrong community.

I own the Astro A40 2013 Edition that come with the new version of the Mix Amp, and I can use it on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360. In my opinion your best bet is getting the Mix Amp by itself and then buy any headset you want to use with it, or you can just get a pair of Astro A40s.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: ehh well I just noticed where you said it needs to be wireless, hmm sorry. I don't recommend any of the turtle beaches though, my cousin has a pair of the Px5 I believe and the sound wasn't that good from what I remember. You might want to look into the official Sony console headsets, but I don't really know how good they are since i've never used them myself.

The H wireless looks nice, but I won't buy it until I hear some reviews. We will see when it comes out.
