Sony In-Ear Stereo Headset for PS4 review

I will start the year with a small review of a very useful thing for all PS4 owners, I will say in advance that the headset can be used with a number of other devices, I took it with me on a small New Year's trip, connected it to the iPhone, Sony Xperia - I took it for experiment, in the end I used it with pleasure.

Sony does not produce many special accessories for the console, for example, at one time they were mono headsets for PS3 and PS4, reviews are on our website.

It is worth remembering the PS3 keyboard, it was attached directly to the joystick, I still get questions from users about the gadget. Although, of course, I myself haven’t used it for a long time and I don’t even know where it is.

Controllers are one of the main accessories, in the photo you can see the anniversary joystick for PS4. As you can see, the stick was worn on the black joystick of the first generation, the anniversary one is made differently - let's see how it behaves, but it seems that it should not change from time to time.

The big PS4 headphones called PS4 Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 is a nice accessory released a couple of years ago, there's also an anniversary edition, but I personally don't feel like buying this thing in the first place right now. First, I would advise you to connect your headphones directly to the joystick, and then decide whether it suits you sound or not.

And here comes the Sony In-Ear Stereo Headset for PS4, a completely new product for consoles. It is worth noting that manufacturers of third-party accessories have long ceased to take risks with small forms, on the contrary, that Plantronics, that Logitech prefer healthy monitor headphones, I don’t know why they forgot about in-ear models. It's one thing if a person plays for five hours in a row, then yes, the nozzles can press - and that's a big question. Well, if the player turns on the console for a maximum of an hour or two a day? The ears won't get tired. Apparently, the focus groups said the same thing, and Sony decided to create a miniature gaming headset that can serve you with other equipment.

Packaging in PS colors, the kit includes a high-quality microUSB cable, a small pouch. The headset itself is still available in one color: black and gray plastic parts, blue cable, fabric braid. The part near the plug is made of rubber, made of this material and the part near the block with the battery. Structurally, the device consists of four parts. These are headphones, rather large "washers", but they are not felt in the ears - I advise you to try them on before buying, if possible. They look like this in the ears.

There is a microphone on the right side of the cable, during a conversation you can not move it closer to your mouth, you can hear perfectly during games. Below is the remote control, when connected to the PS4, you can adjust the volume, with the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, all three buttons worked - playback control, start and stop playback, rewind. The volume control and the multifunction button also worked with the iPhone - such versatility, of course, captivates. Below the remote control is a block with a battery, a noise reduction system, on it is a system power button, a microUSB connector for charging. The operating time of the headset with “noise reduction” turned on is about 15 hours, if the battery runs out or you turn off AudioShield (this is the name of the technology), the headphones can still be used. This block is not too heavy and does not pull you down too much, in general, here all the elements are combined harmoniously, nothing interferes during games.

With PS4, the headset can only be used in one way - by connecting it to the joystick. A notification appears on the TV screen, and then just play. Here is a small official video about the device.

Noise reduction system

The only in-ear headset I've seen so far where the noise canceling worked as it should is the Bose QC-20. There you immediately notice how the sounds around seem to fade away, muffled, as if someone immediately covered the window with cotton wool, from where the noise of the street comes from, threw a blanket over the speakers and put a gag on a colleague talking on the phone nearby. The Sony headset for PS4 does not have this effect. The tops are cut off a little, but now I'm typing this text, the headset is connected to the joystick, the "noise reduction" is on, but the drops outside the window are perfectly audible. And from switching the button on the block, practically nothing changes.

Another question is that by choosing the right eartips and activating the AudioShield, you can achieve better noise reduction than with regular headphones. I assume that many headset owners will simply stop charging it after a while and forget about AudioShield.

I've played games (mostly Fallout 4), listened to music, watched movies, and the headset performs just fine, especially when you know how much it costs. In games, footsteps and other barely noticeable noises are perfectly audible, this is useful in online games, and it turns out to understand where the threat comes from. Shots and stuff - very good. When switching to a smartphone, there is also no disappointment, quite good for itself.

Conclusions

In retail, the headset costs 5,499 rubles, in my opinion, you should pay attention to the accessory if you don’t have any other headphones, have a PS4, don’t like monitor headsets and want something universal - to connect to a smartphone if possible , and to the tablet, and to the laptop. I note a convenient remote control that can work with different devices, a sensitive microphone, good sound quality in general. It's hard to find something better for the money these days. The work of the noise reduction system is not too noticeable, but there's nothing to be done - such is the harsh reality, a truly effective "noise reduction" costs completely different money. In my opinion, Sony can make this model even cheaper if they remove the unit with the battery and AudioShield, slightly reduce the cups, they will not suit everyone (it's a matter of size).
