well, turns out that regardless of how much money you drop on quality headphones, plugging your headset into the dualshock 4's headphone jack just doesn't output enough power to unlock your headphones' true pontential. some headsets come with a USB plugin, however i've seen many with the standard 3.5mm cable like mine. and if you have a headset like that and you want it to be louder,
this is the product for you! on PS4 there is no configuration needed, you simply plug it into a USB port on the console and you're good to go. when I first plugged it into my headset it sounded the same, but I checked my volume settings to find that it was set at less than half the volume it was before (I was at maximum and still too quiet), so this product has effectively doubled the power of my headset! awesome little device. highly recommend
Pros. Fantastic 7.1 headphone setting. Software. Customer support. Overall sound quality.
Cons. One, four-pole jack.
I recommend this if you are using 3 pole devices KingTop 3.5mm Combo Audio Adapter Cable for PS4,Xbox One S,Tablet,Mobile Phone,PC Gaming Headsets and New version Laptop
One thing to note is that the hiss does not appear until you ask for sound. So if your PC is not actively producing sound, the hiss will turn off (abruptly). Once you play a sound, though, it will come right back. If you hit the mute button, the hiss will go away. One way to test that the hiss is still there (if you can't tell because you play loud sounds) is to play music or a YouTube video and then pause it. The hiss will continue for anywhere from 2 seconds to 15 and then it will shut off.
Just to be clear on my setup and what I tried, I am running the latest version of Windows 10 on a custom machine. I plugged the dongle into a USB extension and also directly onto the motherboard. I am using Bose QC25 headphones with the 4-pole cord (the dongle takes/requires a 4-pole cord). I tried my Samsung laptop (running the latest version of Windows 10) as well. I tried a 3-pole adapter. I tried turning off the mic in Windows (in case it feeds back even though the setting to listen to the mic is disabled). I tried Sound Blaster's configuration applications (both of them). I tried setting the adapter to generic (instead of a game mode) and changing the Windows sound settings to 24/96. I reset everything to the defaults using their software. I reduced the volume everywhere (volume level did not affect hiss unless the sound was muted). Once I am done with this review, I will be returning this item.
