5.0 out of 5 stars You can't expect more for the Price!, February 12, 2014
This review is from: PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset - Jet Black (Video Game)
I bought these yesterday and I come from Astro A40's. The setup is a piece of cake and they are super comfortable. For the sound, I read certain reviews complaining about the max volume. Take this into consideration, Battlefield 4 playing at max volume, you stand near a tank or heavy gun fire and your ears will want to explode of how loud and clear the sound is.

Guys, for $100 you get wireless, easy setup, great construction quality, 7.1 surround, custom profiles in the future, think about it. What more can you expect for $100. The other headsets in comparison and 2 to 3 times the price.

If you want something that is good and works and don't want to blow 300, trust me and just buy this. Other reviews that complain about certain things, obviously are not considering the price point and are comparing to headsets that are double and triple the price.

FYI - If you go to the playstation store on your ps4, you can now download the companion app that allows you to create your custom profile for either the Gold Wireless or Elite Headset

The biggest thing I've noticed about other people's feedback is that they are comparing the quality of a $100 "wireless" headset to those of wired headsets of the same price or similar. Others are even going as far as comparing them to actual headphones.

i really don't think its so far fetched to want good quality in a gaming headset, whether they are $100 or $300. i didnt expect them to sound like $300 bose headphones, but i also expected them to sound better then stock samsungs, or even $20 ear buds from verizon.

I "go as far as comparing to actual headphones" the fact that they have a mic DOES NOT give them an excuse to sound bad. that would be dumb.

My $120 jaybirds are Bluetooth (now they go for $99), have a mic, are sweat proof, and they sound great!!! why cant i hold these sonys to the same standard?

Most people that know anything about speakers and headphones know that Bose is garbage. So not a good comparison.

Well, if you think Bose = Garbage, then that means you will think these Sonys = fecal matter in your ear; if you want a fair comparison from your opinion. since i dont think Bose is garbage, i dont think these Sonys are fecal matter in my ear, but you would! so stay away, be warned.

I dont believe Bose products are "the best", but they do sound good. They will never be described as "best bang for the buck", ever. where as that phrase entails these Sonys to a T.

what i mean is yes, you can usually find a better sounding product in the same price range as a bose product. That does not mean Bose sounds bad, just that there is usually something better for the same price. though you will not find a system as compact as a Lifestyle that sounds as good. And i have yet to hear a better ipod/BT speaker then the sounddock portable (that is the same size). i dont mean to start a bose war. i just want other readers to realize your comment that Bose = Garbage is not accurate. maybe Bose = overpriced.

In fairness Bose are overpriced due to their ad budget.

I've heard good and bad Bose. The smaller units speakerwise are good but expensive.... However airline pilots swear by their aviation line,

There's a old saying and I"m just having fun. No highs no lows must be Bose.

They make some ok stuff. But for the money they charge you can get much much better. That doesn't make Bose a bad company or product but at half the price in headphones sennheiser runs circles. So do many others,and their active noise cancel is awful.

Oh and btw in case it was missed. I was agreeing with you. Their small products are good, and overpriced. Their iPod Dock has to lead their charge on that front, probably the best example you could choose
