These earpieces are horrendous wouldn't use them if they were free. What's this about them phasing out 3rd party microphones anyway? The PS4 supports all 3.5mm earphones, microphones etc.

Not since firmware 3.50
Sony have nerfed them. Check online forums everywhere.

Hence why my beats, logitech etc microphones no longer work.

That's crappy from Sony if it's deliberate, but I really wouldn't use these as they are terrible. Had a quick read on Neogaf, if you want to give this a go it might fix it, albeit it would become a bit tedious:

" There has been a quick fix to get these older controllers to recognize a microphone input: you slide the headphone connector in and out really fast 5-10 times and then all the way back into the aux port. And you have to do that each time you unplug your headphones and plug them back in."

Used to use Apple EarPods; earphones work but mic does not. Just bought some Amazon premium earphones and they still work but not sure what others

It seems it's products intended to be used on Apple items that have this problem. Apparently, Apple being Apple, made their 3.5mm jack different from the standard one and that's where the problem lies.

Yeah I'm calling **** on this too, have used a tonne of different headphones, mostly from various phones and never had a problem with any of them - this rumor needs to be nerfed.

Apple have lines their sound band, mic band and imput bands different on their headphones 3.5mm jack.

It's why a volume rocker for Apple doesn't work on Android.

I found out the hard way with my Sony mdr-1r that the volume rocker won't work.

My mic is super quiet on the ps4 as well. I've not tried a different mic cable. I own the old ps3 Sony steroids 5.1 head set.

Apple earphones from the 4s work fine, mic included

Yep, my third party sets work fine. The mics on these official ones that come in the box are garbage though.
