Best PS5 and PS4 headset 2021: Superb Playstation gaming headphones

Plugging in a proper gaming headset for the first time can be a bit of a life-changing experience.

Whether you're trying to get as immersed as possible in solo gaming sessions, or seeking any little advantage in the world of multiplayer modes, a good-quality gaming headset can really change your prospects drastically. 

However, the range of headsets available for each console is subtly different, and they're often not compatible across all devices.

Lucky for you, we've been exhaustively testing headsets for PlayStation consoles specifically, to work out which are the very best if you're a Sony console owner already or are picking up a new PS5. All the headsets we've picked should work on both the PS4 and PS5, although going for a wired option is the most surefire way to guarantee this.

How can I connect a headset to my PS5 or PS4?

Connecting a headset to your PS5 works in much the same way as with the PS4.

If you're opting for a wired headset (where you'll generally get better sound quality for the price), your life should be very simple. In most cases, headsets can connect via a 3.5mm jack to your PS4 or PS5 controller to get game and chat audio easily. Some more premium headsets might instead opt for an optical audio cable via a passthrough, but these will come with detailed instructions of how to set the system up (and will most likely be an issue of the PS5, which has no optical audio port at all). 

The PS5 and PS4 also support wireless headsets in a few different ways. For one thing, if your headphones have Bluetooth they should in theory be able to connect to the console, via its settings - however, due to the way Sony sets up its Bluetooth connections, don't expect any old pair of Bluetooth headphones to work. Really, only specifically-branded PlayStation-compatible options will work properly. 

In point of fact, most of the wireless headsets on this list come with a dongle to plug into a USB port on your console, which will let them easily and quickly connect when they're powered on. This is both the easiest and quickest way to connect to your PS5 or PS4. If you need a step-by-step guide, here it is:

  1. In Settings, navigate to Devices and go into Bluetooth Devices
  2. Put your headset into pairing mode and plug in any supplied dongle
  3. Wait for it to appear on the list and select it when it does
  4. Await a success message to confirm the connection, and register the device to your PlayStation if it's requested

With that out of the way, let's move on to the headsets we've been testing.
