Saying that, most gaming headsets in virtual sound will mute or dumb down bass or environmental sound so you can hear things like footsteps very, very clear. Here's what I learned on my third pair of headphones... IF you aren't a FPS gamer and play all sorts of games, get a amplified stereo headset and save yourself a $100 or so dollars. 7.1 / 5.1 and all those gaming presets are for FPS gamers. I say this because I ended up going back to my TB X12's which are $40, I've had them for 5 years and the bass and treble are really well balanced and the bass rumbles in my ears. I went back and forth testing the X12's compared to the Gold's and 500s and I couldn't deny the difference AND they are only $40.
SO, as of yesterday I returned my 500's to Amazon and I'm getting the PX24's. This advice I'm giving is coming from someone who plays a lot of different types of games, I don't need to specifically hear footsteps, I want good low rumbling bass and want to hear the heaviness of a gunshot or engine. Don't bother with the expensive surround headphones, they are all hyped. Most people review these and rave about them because they've never owned any other type of pair or compared them to several headphones. They don't know any better.
My wife was laughing while I was testing the 500's because I kept yelling, "HOW DOES A $40 X12 Headset beat a $100 7.1 surround set??" It was frustrating because I wanted the 500s to work but for now on I'm sticking to the cheaper ones and getting better sound. Side note, I just bought No Man's Sky and used that game and Just Cause 3 to test the sound on the headphones. The 500's drowned out the phasers and engines. I ended up skipping the surround sound altogether and sticking with the 'Bass & Tremble' setting... WHICH IS essentially the X12's and Px24's. I also threw in GTAV and Metal Gear Solid V. Same results.
Also, just to point out, the Gold Wireless lacked any bass whatsoever. I was shocked but then discovered that the reason for no bass is the reason the 500's sucked... It dulls / plays down a lot of atmospheric / environmental sounds including gun shots, etc... This is to give the playing a major edge in FPS so they can hear footsteps, clips reloading, etc. ONE more time, if you aren't a FPS fanatic and don't care if you hear footsteps coming up behind you, get cheaper amplified headphones. Even with the X12's I could get somewhat surround but it keeps all the sounds at a full level and balanced. Just frusturuing because most reviewers don't know this and take it for what it's worth.
Something else to understand with this headset being wireless is it has way better speaker drivers since it's obviously powered by batter rather than an audio cable. This allows for better speaker performance, plus it's nice to not have to deal with an extra cable...
The reason for 4/5 stars. It's not AS comfortable to wear as others out there but you get used to it. Plus, after wearing them for a while you hardly notice them anymore. Also, although flexible, the plastic seems a bit cheap and feels like they could snap if extended too far. But I suppose for the price, all that money is going into performance and features rather than structure integrity.
Still, all in all, outstanding headset!
I'm basing this off of playing Destiny and watching movies with the Playstation Gold Headset for over a year.
Sound - I work in video production so I've got an ear for sound quality. This thing, even with the bass boos preset does not have the fidelity of the PS Gold Headset. I switched between the Surround Sound and Stereo settings (because if find most 7.1 SS headsets to be hallow) and no noticeable increase in quality. I do like the fine tuning it gives you with chat and game volume.
Mic - the mic is pretty nice, easy to move around and good quality. I notice some people don't like the monitoring but i do. It picks up more specifically on peaking and when your breathing into the mic. the stuff thats annoying to hear from other people. you won't hear your own voice much though, which i find to be fine.
Comfort - its a little tight. i ware glasses and have yet to be in pain from it but its a noticeable difference and does make me fee like there is a bit of pressure on my head. But after 8 hours of use it didn't become unbearable, just noticeable.
Usability - The presets might as well just not exist. it would be more helpful to get complete control of the EQ to make them usable. like i said about the sound, very little differences in settings. I'm not a fan of the blinking LED logo that is on while the headset is powered on. I thought it was pairing at first then read it was the normal sign that it was on (considering putting tape over the LED logos) the adjustments for headsize are too tight to adjust while its on your head. you need to take it off to adjust. There is no way to gauge battery life outside of its audio queues of "fully charged" and "battery life low". The PS Gold headset would show battery life on screen if you hit the dashboard, same as how it shows your controller's life.
Setup - the only reason i'm giving it a 8/10 is that i have to unplug the USB dongle to switch from headset audio to TV audio. outside of that the setup is pretty quick and easy.
Lifespan - i've only had it for a month so i've not noticed a decrease or major issue with charge time or battery life. Advertised life on the box says 15 hours. i get closer to 8 when playing and chatting. still thats pretty long.
Verditc - Dont get the Surround Sound version. hardly noticeable VS stereo mode. Get the PS Gold Headsets. They are almost the same price and just work better. Only reason i got these was that the bands that compress the PS headset's earcups broke on my old pair (i may have been a little too rough with them, but i've had them since PS4 came out, so thats a good lifespan)
