    Best ps4 headset help

    Ok. So I just purchased the astro a40's with the mixamp pro.... while some of you are going to think what are you griping about, I still have a gripe. While they sound good and have a good Mic quality. They lack that bass I really want out of a $250 set of headphones. Great highs nice and crisp and clean. Good mids and acoustics. They are comfortable etc. But man I need more bass I just do..... so can any experienced audiophiles steer me in the right direction. And hopefully whoever gives an opinion has had the a40's or a50's so I can get a good comparison.

    both the A40s and A50s didnt do it for me, what i use are the wireless playstation ones, now the A40s sound better but with the wireless playstation gold headphones you can adjust the base in the app. the other option is to get a set of Beats audio Studios(non wireless) they come with a headphone wire with a mic built in and sound great but youll only ever have stereo from them. those would be my two options for you, i wasnt a fan of the A40 or A50s and spent my money on both of those headphones instead. Beats for when im not caring about stereo aka playing a game like baseball or football, ps golds for games like CoD i just moved the base up some, now theres one more option Playstation Pulse headphones which supposedly have better base but i never have used them before. they also work with the ps4 app for tuning the sound.

    Hey, thanks for your input. The only question I would have is are the ps golds as loud. I also wonder if the beats are as loud also because it's going into the controller w no amp.

    the beats have a battery in them for noise cancelling i find them to be loud enough but if you want ill double check them real quick when i get home, the Golds get decently loud, but how loud do you want them like rattle your brain loud or loud enough you can hear talking and all the effects clearly, for that both work great but neither will rattle your eye sockets.

    im listening to music with the Beats now, they are loud enough that i lower the volume some on them to around 80% or so the ps golds arent as loud, and definatly arent as clear at the higher volume!!! but for gaming they are hte ones with surround sound and are wireless, so i use them in FPS and such, when im playing MLB or madden i use the Beats with Music unlimited going in the backround. at lower levels the PS golds are clear not as crisp on the highs and lows but crisp on the mids and are passable on music they arent the best headphones but they are good in games, i can tell if im being shot from behind with them and such.

    I just want them at least as loud as the astros. I've never really been a fan of beats audio. I feel there are better sounding music headsets for a fraction of the price. Like some sennheisers. Etc.

    I think I'm noticing that gaming head sets are really focused on sound quality. More so comfort,features,and hearing foot steps. Not crisp highs that aren't flat, booming clean bass,etc. I'm a musician and picky with my sound quality and game sets don't cut it. I'm selling my astros and just getting a cheap set since that's all even the high end are worth.

    yea gaming headsets are not about sound quality they are about comfort and features, if you have a good set of headphones already just use them on the controller thats probably the best youll do sound quality wise.
