PS4 headphones/ microphone question


Standard Member

I have a PS4 and am using it to play a couple of games. I am not a gamer.

We got my stepson a PS4 for Xmas. We are not getting him PS Plus.

What I would like to know is can you use normal wired headsets with PS4 and use party chat so he can chat via PS4 to a friend? I changed settings for devices to headset so that I could listen to game music through my headset instead of through the TV so I know that you can listen through non gaming specific headphones. I use Beats headphones which have a microphone but when I tried to chat 💬 to step son on his PS4 via party chat to test it out we could not get the microphones to work so all we could do was test out share play/watch the screens neither of us could hear each other.

We have been in and out of all settings. Speaking in microphone volume setting does nothing.

Any suggestions? Will it only work with specific gaming headphones?

It is not the end of the world he chats on FaceTime. I just find it annoying I cannot get it to work!!!

Thank you
