PlayStation 4 Headset Astro A50

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a great headset for my PlayStation. I'm using my Corsair H70 and they work great. But, one thing I'm looking for is something that gives a true surround sound inside the headset. I have the Sonys official PS4 headset and it's not that great. 

 

For example, I want to be able to tell if there is someone walking/shooting behind me..

 

I am looking at these,

Look into TurtleBeach or Logitech. Those are the top 2 I know of.

This is possible. And this is extremely rare.

 

Most headsets that advertise "surround sound" use FAKE surround sound via Audio DSP processing.

 

If you are looking for accurate as possible Positional Audio (i.e. footsteps of doom) the headphones need EXTRA SPEAKERS inside the earpieces which due to the extra cost, is not common. Look carefully at the specs.
