Xim4 with headset
« on: 08:59 AM - 03/19/17 »
Hey guys I bought the xim4 (on the way)
And I noticed I can't plug in the headset because the controller won't work .

I have 3.5mm headset cable looks like the aux cable . I used to plug it to the controller and chat .

I also have a bludio headset they are wireless . And I have the USB that makes the PS4 able to connect them via Bluetooth . It comes with a little mic that I also need to plug .
What can I do guys ?

If the bluetooth adapter is recognized by PS4 then that should be all you need so long as nothing needs to plug into the controller. If that setup requires the controller then you would need to find another solution like:


USB Sound Card with Y cable included.

Not all of it. You will need to find a USB only solution or use the PS4 Gold Bluetooth headset.

I understand. If your audio setup uses the controller or doesn't work with the ps4 without using the controller then you will need to use one of the methods listed above.

I thought a headset would have worked with the controller attached to xim, but it does not

what I did is:

connect a second controller to the PS4 (with a second profile)
connect the headset to the second controller
PS4 automatically put the sound from the first profile (profile you are gaming with) to the headset on the second controller

so you have a second controller on the desk, but also can walk around with it, because it is not required to be wired

From what I understand any USB headset should work. You could check with PlayStation to be sure. No, a soundcard is not required when using a USB headset.

My favorite solution that I use is the Sony Silver Headset, it's USB. But, the headset is so uncomfortable, I just plug another one into the port (same port as the controller, so if your headset works on a controller, it works with the silver cable). That way, you get the Sony supported simulated 7.1 surround.
However, Sony may have discontinued the silver headsets, they seem hard to find. But also means, if you find one, it's discounted, making it worth it for just the cable.
