Brought these today. Lighter and better sound than the original gold headset. Don't know what people are complaining about the Mic for no problems so far.

Are these any good?

I agree on the above and feels snug and dosent hurt your ears and glasses friendly.
I had the previous Gold headset and other than some build quality issues, they were a damn good wireless headset for what I paid (£50). The mic quality is fairly poor in comparison to most other brands, even my current Astro A10’s have a better mic, but they’re wired. The all-round value for money is very good and I’ll be buying a pair soon
Never even heard of these. Are they improved over the original Gold headset? Because they just seem to be redesigned slightly and lost PS3 compatibility. They also cost more. Not seeing the deal here personally.
According to the PS blog these ones are more comfy and have an improved mic over the original set.

"The headset maintains the great features you loved about the Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0, and builds on them with a new sleek form and refined over-ear cushions that make it even more comfortable for long gaming sessions. Two optimally-positioned hidden noise-cancelling mics also help support clearer communication with friends and team-mates"

The major issue the older gold headset had was that the hinges on the headband were prone to cracking, this new headband completely solves that and I've even seen this new headband being stretched and bent to insane limits and not breaking.
Bloomin eck I paid less for my platinums. Like what they've done with the band though

Are these Xbox One compatible? I’m not good with tech but I do need a decent headset which I can use on both consoles.

Wow my headset looks exactly the same. I coped with the snap by bandaging it up but the last straw was the black flecks of leather shedding over my ears and face! New one seems pretty good so far.

Thanks OP. Treated myself. Will sell og version to offset cost.

You should look after your possessions. No one to blame but yourself.
I don't trust the build quality after my original blue ones broke way too easily. The hinges were pathetically made, I'm just plugging my on ear headphones into the controller instead..

I can honestly say these are more comfortable than my old ones and the headband is more slimmer and peefect for glasses users as the old one pinched my ears.

Your trolling right? I used it 4 hours a day for two years of course it was well worn. I'm actually impressed it lasted that long and a good reason I bought this new upgrade.

Also the headband snap was a well known issue with the headset.

no..... My friend has a gold headset and a 4 year old child who constantly pulls on the cable when we're gaming together. lol She's had it from release and it's working fine.

Yes, this is compatible with Mobile phones, PC, Switch, Xbox One if you use it with the 3.5mm extension cable supplied with it
Though i don't think you'll get the Virtual Surround Sound benefits on the other platforms unlike on PS4 with this
My review of this new Gold vs the old Gold

- Much more durable and no longer prone to the snapping issue the previous was known for
- Sound quality slightly improved not much but the original Gold sound quality was good in the first place anyway
- This New gold headset is 3D audio compatible like the Platinum headset great for VR etc
- Mic quality is average same quality as previous Gold
- More comfortable than previous Gold and lighter
- Buttons on the headsets more like buttons and not digged in like the previous
- Battery don't know if it's placebo but it seems ever so slightly better than old Gold

Overall it's a clear improvement over the old Gold headset gave the old away to my cousins after thorough testing as i no longer need it, only con i can think of is the packaging box this arrives in the innards is less fancy than the Old one that's about it lol

Here's some blog details of this if you wanna read up on it:

Clear cut review with no waffle. Thanks
I have the original pulse elites. they were prone to cracking where the green marks are, as did mine. I have put some tie wraps around the parts marked in red and am still using the set after 4.5 years.
Can anyone recommend some for the Xbox One S at a similar price range? The best I've come up with is laptopsdirect.co.uk/-tb…BwE
