PS3 Bluetooth Headphones Compatible with PS4?

We all know controllers never carry over to the next generation.  But do I have to spend another $100+ for headphones?

No unfortunately they are not (for the time being). It is funny that SONY brand headsets cannot be used (Pusle).

However the Pulse elites can be used (from what I read) if you plug them into the controller.  I have friends using the Sony PS4 provided ones for chat.

I went out and bought Astro A40s (which I should have done in the 1st place years ago).  They work perfectly (as any USB ones should: They use optical out for sound, and USB for chat)

Bluetooth headsets are NOT compatible. But any usb headset is supposed to be compatible like ps3 usb ones. But you can also just use any headset with a 3.5mm jack and plug it into the controller

Sounds like it doesn't.  If I have to buy another one, I'll be getting a non-PS, usb one this time.  Fool me once....

They are supposedly working on a Update for Blue tooth version. Now that may be for the Sony brands. I hope so.

your headset might be set to chat sound only. If you hold the ps button while your headset is in you have to go to adjust devises or whatever it says and put it to play ALL SOUND.

Im using the Sony Pulse Elites and they sound amazing!!!!!!!  Check the settings. I was pretty upset about no headsets being able to work and the turtle beaches have too many connections for me.  I just wanted to keep it simple.  The surround sound is awesome...its in 5.1.  The only thing that doesnt work i believe is the 7.1 since it has to be wireless for that (i think, not 100% sure)

I just got home with a set of Pulse' and despite the good peoples at eb games (game stop) assuring me that they would work, they do not. Apparently that will be patched sometime in January!?! Sony! Come on!
