    Hey
    My partner has a ps4 and is an avid console gamer, he's after a headset for the ps4 and I have no idea what is good and what isn't and I was wondering if any of you guys could help me out?
    His only must is it has to be a headset not just earphones, and he would prefer over the ear ones.
    Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    Depends how much you want to spend I guess.

    I just use Sony's official wireless headset which is great for its price. I find it really comfortable, battery life is pretty good, I usually get around 7 hours from full charge to flat. There's an app for PS4 that comes with custom sound profiles for some games and you can also make your own.

    Alright I did some looking around and ended up getting these
    Afterglow Kral

    They seem really good and he's extremely happy with them they're not too expensive either considering they're meant to last and from what i found the official PS$ ones aren't built that well.
    Anyway for anyone looking to get a headset these come recommended now.

    Might be getting some as well, keep waking up my wife during the night and she's not very happy. Good find!

    Come to the dark side and replace the headset with headphones and a modmic, couple that with an Astro MixAmp and you will have INSANE sound and still be able to talk.

    High recommend the Beyer Dynamic 990 Pros

    +1 for the official gold headset, things got 7.1 surround and pure awesome and comfortable.

    Good purchase, I actually use mine with my PC as well now. It's definitely one of the most comfortable headsets I've ever had, just wish the battery lasted a bit longer.
