Hi guys. My last PS Headphones were utter crap and ended up all broken Anyway, now I'm thinking of getting the Last of Us ones because of the 7.1 sound and all that...thing is I saw the new headphones that will come out with PS5 and I don't know if they will be too much different from the current Gold edition.
Any help?

The gold ones don't actually do simulated 7.1 or 3D audio. So the platinum ones are much better for Ps4.

Not sure what the situation will be like on ps5. I think any stereo headphones are supposed to work with 3d audio, but don't think there is any definite info.

@phil_j the Last of Us headset description actually talks about 7.1 surround sound. Is it any different from 3d audio?

My mistake, sorry. So the golds do 7.1 but the platinums also do 3d audio.

3d is supposed to mean you hear things above and below you. I've only used the platinums and the surround sound is incredible, but if that's any different to how it sounds on the golds, I couldn't say.

@phil_j ok thanks a lot for the explanation! Maybe I wait for the new PS5 headset since it does have 3d audio, but damn those Last of Us headsets are sexy af

I have the Gold Headset - normal edition - and they're great. One of the best sounding headsets I've ever had. And better than the Platinum ones, not sure what went wrong there. I even plug in the cable and use them for normal music playback and such.

If you're not desperate I'd wait for the PS5 ones. If you really want them, then you won't be making a bad choice. Just don't pay more than £70 or whatever the $ equivalent is.

@TheIdleCritic the site where I'm seeing them it's like 90 euros!
I just like the fact they are from Last of Us and the design they chose appeals to me...but yeah maybe I'll wait for the PS5 just because of the 3d audio

I have the original gold headset and it’s fantastic. Games and movies sound really great. I have a few headsets but I always prefer these. Get them you won’t be disappointed.

I got the Platinum cans and find the sound quality a lot better than the Gold set which I had previously.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@AFCC Can't say technically what improves the sound, but everything was clearer and more pronounced. It was immediately noticeable I found.
