    PS4 included ear bud (headset) sound quality.

    Cheap, hell yes!
    But does it sound like it looks?
    No,
    it happens to sound quite good, like really good for what it is.
    I recorded a message last night and saw the option to listen to it,
    and when I did I was pleasantly surprised at how clear and loud it actually was.
    So, is this the general consensus? Or am I crazy? Cause to me it really does sound good enough for me to be happy using it.
    Please share your experience's.

    I'm perfectly fine with the ear bud. I like it because it doesn't go right into your ear but rather just setting in your ear will fit perfectly, however, it is quite confusing and odd if you aren't familiar with this type of ear piece. The sound quality is quite good I think, I've had no problems but there is one downfall. If I'm talking to people and I'm going to get up and do something, I have to take the controller with me. This is where the BT headset would come in handy.

    I agree,
    when I get up to do something I just unplug it from the controller and take the
    earbud with me, plus I secure the plastic clip to my shirt too.

    Agreed I was surprised as well. I was also surprised with the quality of the speaker in the DS4. The audiologs in KZ: SF sound really good. Right now I'm using my pulse elites instead of the stock mic because it bugs me to only use one ear. I love the fact that I can send all the audio to the headset as well. If I can't be bothered to dig them out of their case I just grab the stereo headset that came with my phone. I just wish they had an in-line mute function like the stock one does

    Why are people surprised that speakers on a Sony product is good?
    Next people will be surprised that a Lamborghini is fast

    I have crap ears which don't take kindly to earbuds you just set in you ear so I have to wear earphones that clip round the back of my ear so I'm not to optimistic they are going to work for me. iPhone buds and a whole load if others just fall straight out again so if these work it'll be a major thumbs up

    The iPhone headphones buzz! Using my Samsung buds and they work pretty well. The official ones are Ok but I only used it on the 15th before switching. My buddy uses it tho and I can hear him clearly in party chats

    One more thing that's a bit odd. When you record gameplay and have the audio and chat through the headset, the recorded clip will not have audio but your commentary? I tested it out yesterday and game audio needs to come through the tv for you to hear it when viewing your clip

    I got a head-set from Asda for a tenner. I am told by my killzone 3 friends that is a very good quality and this has the plastic clip that goes round the ear. Why dont you try one mate.

    Does anyone know where replacement headsets can be ordered? I actually like them and would like to get one in case mine stops working.
