Headset
#1
right now i have the official wireless stereo headset with 7.1 virtual surround but the wireless receiver dongle thing interrupts my wifi signal to the ps4 so can cause issues, so im looking for a wired headset that can plug into the controller and id love it to have surround or virtual surround but i dont want to spend loads on it.... any idea's ?

before you do that, what about changing channels on your wifi router ?

did that, it worked for a day strangely and then started clashing again, also right now i have the dongle on a 3 metre usb extension so its set the other side of my tv away from my ps4, that made it so the headset wasnt stuttering and stuff but it occasionally makes the signal drop still

i just think my biggest reason for wireless was because i cant have a wire going across the room when other people are in it, but now the ps4 is like the xbox360 and the headset can go straight into the controller it means wires are fine again for me

why o why do people use wireless when latency is a concern.

My wireless headset is 5ghz, so never have an issue. Astro Gaming headset, but its not cheap, the particular unit I have isn't sold anymore, but this is the wired version: http://www.limexb360.co.uk/Astro_System_...sysred.htm

astros seem a popular choice also 5ghz obviously means the ps4 2.5ghz wifi connection wouldnt clash but £200 is a bit steep, if i cant get much cheaper i might have to look for stereo and forget the surround sound

you can get the wired mix amp separately for £110 that should work with any iphone headphones with mic

i thought of another solution, how good are those things that you get 2 plugs and put your internet into 1 and out of the other?

like these Powerline adapters

they are supposed to be quite good, but it depends on the age of the wiring and if there's any noisy electrical appliances on the same rings

i was just reading about one of the sets i looked at, a few quid more than those ones and they was tested in a victorian house with old wiring and still got up to 68mb which is better than my wifi signal at the moment, there test was from downstairs to upstairs at the other end of the house, mine will be across the room, which has got to be closer via the cables in the wall than upstairs, plus i could always send them back and just say they dont work right or something if they are shite
