Comes with adapter which CEX are currently buying for £9 cash - making the headset £21 if you have the newer controllers which don't require it.

Nice - heat!
Guessing it'd work on the PS4 without the adapter too?... if you're not precious about brand loyalty

The adapter would be the main reason to buy this headset. Unless they've improved the build quality of these headsets, I wouldn't recommend them.

I've had mine since the original Titanfall came out in March 2014. They're a bit flimsy and clearly use cheap plastic, but mine still works as it did on the day that I got it.

For £30, you're unlikely to get a more comfortable headset with the sound quality that it does.

Which headsets are worth looking at around £30-£40? My son wants one for christmas.

I'm with you on this. Had mine until I sold my console last year. Then having been sucked in by these Xbox One S deals recently, I want a headset to use whilst playing Fortnite. had no previous issues and hell they're comfy!

Yeah, used to use mine on everything since they're so comfy.

Can you mute the microphone?

Don’t forget to choose Windows Sonic in the settings if using a headphone. Helps immensely in locating the direction of enemy footsteps in fortnite.

Works fine with PS4. The 2,0 headset is much better for an extra £20 though. Wireless on PS4 and PC and can be used wired for Xbox One. Has better audio quality than this Xbox headset. But the XB1 headset does have a better mic.

Out of interest, does this connect directly with the PS4? I've read PS4 Is very selective about which headsets work with it or is that something that's been addressed in recent firmware updates?

In other words, would any Bluetooth headset work with PS4?

This is wired - plugs into the bottom of the controller.

That’s good... but the thought of wearing someone else’s headphones weirds me out. I know the chances are they were never worn but still.

I got these in july and now there a crackling noise .

There's a mute button on the adapter as well as volume controls.

I have two pairs of these and quite like them for the price, they're reasonably comfortable and sound ok for inexpensive headphones. Also I like having the stereo adapter to be able to quickly mute/unmute the mic or change the volume which I couldn't seem to find a shortcut for when using the 3.5mm jack on the controller.

Nice one just had a look. Black one for £13 or white for £18. Bought the black one as a back up.

These break extremely easily. Go for hyper X cloud II. Amazing for gaming music and just about anything audio related.
