Is this any good?


OK at best. Nowhere near up to the standards of actual real headphones around the same price bracket.Of course if you *must* have wireless then consider them, sure, but they're certainly not worth the £50 surcharge compared to the "PS Gold" headset

Remember, friends don't let friends buy gaming headsets.

Thanks. Any recommendations? I've been looking at these and the Razer Threshers 7.1s. ideally I'd like wireless (with the option for wired) but build quality is important too.

I've tried the new gold ones too, they are decent for the purposes I need - PS4 gaming and PSVR
Bought one of these on Friday, used it a few times. Then while playing on Monday it cutout and the dongle had completely broken. Apparently a very common issue, so returned mine for a replacement. Hopefully won't happen again.
Had the Golds for over a year and the sound is better on the Platinum and they're more comfortable to wear for a long period of time.
My son has been using the gold's for over a year no issues whatsoever, not sure if these are worth paying the extra for.
"Virtual 7.1" so stereo then.

Currently own the razer threshers 7.1 and can confirm they are super comfortable. I wear glasses too but the foam around the ears is really soft I hardly notice any discomfort or pain after long gaming sessions. I loved them so much that I purchased another pair for the one x.

One thing to be mindful about is, that, the USB adapter has to be connected to the front right port, this is because the optical cable connects to the adapter from the right side. If you connect the adapter to the left port, this will stop you from using the right port due to the protruding cable. It's a flaw but a minor one if you can work around it.

The xbox's headset has no adapter and connects straight to the console wirelessly, I wish the ps4 variant had this option.

P.s. I purchased them on Amazon for around £80 on black Friday.

Thanks for this.

Is the sound good? Also how is the durability, I saw quite a few people complain about the hinges.

Sound is pretty decent tbh for the price range. With regards to durability, my pair are still going strong, no issues with hinges etc. I purchased them around November time last year ,so yeah, still going strong.
It's a good discount but I would always say get the gold when it's on offer. £49.99 you get really good surround sound and if you have vr it connects fine.
Steelseries Arctis 7 are much better than these for a similar pricepoint.

I had several pairs of gold and each time they snapped from the plastic hinges (very common fault)

2 speakers is fine for 2 ears. Surround processing has been good for 25 years but with the exception of nonsense like Atmos it's gotten so much better in the last 5. There are no issues at all using 2 speaker systems for surround these days
For some reason ppl don't seem to like these as much as the gold headset. I have owned both and prefer the platinum, though I do think the RRP is a bit much. Sound quality is very good though I wouldn't say massively better than the gold. The one area I feel these excel versus the gold is appearance and build quality. I really like the way they look, the metal headband adds a touch of class and these feel much stronger and the larger earcups make them comfier for me personally. though my gold set never failed, the folding strap of the gold always felt flimsy and as if it would break very easily in a mishap.

They aren't perfect, the game specific profiles for 3D audio are still absent for most games with only a few of the biggest first party exclusives getting them and the dongle that plugs into the PS4 is bulky and gets surprisingly hot while connected too. Also weirdly they will only seem to charge on the (Very short) USB to micro USB cable provided, which is weird as other peripherals like controls will charge on any micro USB. Lastly on the negatives these don't support PS3 via the dongle for wireless where as I believe the golds still do (they did when I had them). Don't forget these released a few years back when PS3 was still actively supported so them dropping support was a bit premature IMHO....

Normal Surround has indeed been around for years,these work well as virtual 7.1 due to altering the angle of the drivers to the ears and the sound processing involved,quite impressed with these at the price point,well recomended..

Mine did the same
I own both the Arctis 7's (bought for use with a laptop) and the platinums. IMO the Platinums sound better when used (exclusively) with the PS4. The Battery life is fantastic with the 7s though( can confirm used them for approximately 23 hours on one charge) and they have a physical mic which you can position - not to say the inbuilt mic on the Platinums are bad but best to point it out. The ear pads are also more comfortable on the 7's (kinda had to break in the Platinums however may not be an issue for you). If you only want to use them for said console then I would recommend the Platinums. Hope all the above comments have helped you with your decision . Oh yeah would say to wait a month if you can with prime day coming up - may save a bit more on the price (can't guarantee though.)

Which version of the Gold though? I’m sure there was a “new” release of the Gold last year if I’m not mistaken? I have the newer version, and I’ve had no issues for just over a year. Good price for the platinum if you don’t have the gold IMO

Old version, new one doesn't have hinges and they mention them. Original golds were foldable and home some build quality issues. Mine never snapped but after couple of years the material from earcups and bottom of headband started coming off in small pieces.
