Once you plug/connect your headset/headphones into your controller on the PS4 go to:
Settings --> Devices--> Audio Devices --> 'Output to headphones' change 'chat audio' to 'all audio'
From that you are able to input all sound to your headset into a wireless headset receiver, so you no longer have to get an extension cord across the living room to use your wired controller. It stops sending audio from the HDMI and optical port and directly to what's connected to your controller. Great if you own a high end wired gaming headset and don't want to invest in a wireless one just so you don't have to deal with extended wires hooking up to your console or have to sit up close to the TV (example buying the Astro A40 over the A50s). Note that it may not work on all headsets, for example the stock Apple Headset does not work (or at least in chat).
Now on the actual controller review. I got the Anniversary edition which is the exact same as the stock controller you get in your PS4, but just a different color. This controller will not enhance your gameplay unless the placebo effect of getting a favorite color gets up more pumped for some reason. If you plan to purchase the the Anniversary edition, just know that the design is different from the PS4 controller if you purchased the PS4 anniversary console as that controller has a better designed emblem on the gamepad and better screws in back...so yeah, know that the one you're getting here is less rare, but functions the same
Syncing is easy: Turn on your PS4, connect your controller to the PS4 via USB/mico USB cable (not included in this package) and hit the PS button on the controller. Ready to play in seconds (unlike the Wii or Wii U which takes 30secs+)
This controller is in every way better than the PS3 controller (minus the battery life which I'll get into later). It has better ergonomics, trigger buttons (R2, L2) don't slip off your fingers once you press them, palm grips more comfortable to hold, built in speakers, touch pad, light bar, share button and most importantly the headphone port!
Battery life is in controller is horrible compared to the DualShock 3 as it dies out about 3-4 hours of intense gameplay. You can go wired and directly connect it to the PS4, but it feels weird being tethered to the console, especially with the risk of someone walking across the room and tripping over the wire.
Instead, when the dualshock 4 is low on battery I just use an external battery with a short USB cable (~1 foot) and your controller is back in action. Yes, you are also tethered to the external battery, but you get more mobility, and after long game sessions you don't even realize it's there.
Overall, just a different paint job on the controller than what you get with your console. Hope you picked up some tips from this review and happy gaming.
Original grey PS1 color with the colored logo PS Button. Just wish it had the etched touchpad.
