No GravatarFor PlayStation gamers looking for a decent wireless headset, the PlayStation Gold is a great option.  It has many features that are a must-have for online game play.  Though there may be better headsets out there with better sound quality, there really isn’t anything sufficient available for the price.

Here are some of the features that the Gold provides:

Battery Life

The battery life is very similar to that of a typical PS4 controller.  If both are charged at the same time, the battery will last for the same amount of time.  This provides a full day of gaming with one charge, or if a person is only casually gaming, it will hold out for a couple of days between charges.  With a standard mico USB charger, if it the batter does get low, it can easily be charged while a person is still playing with a long cable.  The one that is provide with the Gold is quite short, however.

 Comfort

The PlayStation Gold is pretty comfortable.  It certainly is a lot more wearable than an in-ear headset and can be worn for quite awhile with no issue.  In fact, it is easy to forget that the headset is on.  There is padding along the top and around the ears.  The ear phones themselves are large enough to be comfortable for many hours of gaming.  It can get a bit hot because it is a larger headset, which may affect those living in a warmer more humid climate.

Gaming

The Gold features a noise cancelling microphone for chat during gaming.  There is an adjustable volume for chat and game volume, which is really handy.  It also easily adapts to the PS3, PS4, PSVita (using a headphone jack), or PC.  The Gold is incredibly easy to plug into a PS3 or PS4: just plug the USB in and select headset from the console.  Two PlayStation Gold’s can be plugged into a PS4 at once, making split-screen gaming with a friend very easy.  The microphone itself is very clear and, unlike the PlayStation Silver, does not have a microphone sticking out.

Sound

The Gold has a 7.1 virtual surround sound, and it does sound pretty decent.  A true audio connoisseur will probably not like it, but the average gamer will no doubt enjoy the sound quality for the price.

Versatility

The best part about the PlayStation Gold is its versatility because there are many more uses for it than just gaming.  It’s great for watching Netflix while a spouse of significant other is asleep.  For those people with children, a person can watch or play something without worrying about the kids hearing foul language.  For apartment dwellers, the Gold is amazing for late night movies and gaming so that the neighbors don’t hear.  The Gold is an overall good headset

So, is the PlayStation Gold the best wireless headset ever?  No.  However, is it the best for the price?  Absolutely!  It typically retails for a hundred dollars or lower, depending on the deal.  For a comfortable and versatile headset, that is a very reasonable price.
