How to connect wired headphones 

How to connect wired headphones

Most wired headphones are compatible with the PS4. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to connect wired headphones with a 3.5mm audio jack to the PS4:

  1. Turn on PS4, connect headphones to the PS4 controller, and select “Settings
  2. Click on “Devices
  3. Select “Audio devices
  4. Go to “Output device” and select Headset connected to controller
  5. Then in the “Audio Devices” section, select “Output to Headphones” and click on “All audio” if you want to listen to both game sounds and voice chat through headphones, or select “Chat Audio“. In this case, the voice chat will sound from the headphones, and the game sounds from the TV
  6. In the “Audio Devices” section, you can adjust the volume of the headphones and microphone level 

How to connect non-compatible wired headphones 

Wired headphones most often meet one of the following standards: CTIA or OMTP. The main difference between the two is that their ground and microphone rings are switched. You can find information on the standard of your headphones on the Internet. The PS4 uses a CTIA standard, so if you try to connect the OMTP standard headphones to the game console, the sound will be awful. To avoid this and connect the OMTP standard headphones to PS4, you need to have OMTP to CTIA earphone converter/adapter and follow the next steps:

  1. Turn on PS4
  2. Connect your headphones to OMTP to CTIA headphone converter/adapter
  3. Plug converter to a PS4 controller
  4. Select “Settings
  5. Click on “Devices
  6. Select “Audio devices
  7. Go to “Output device” and select Headset connected to controller
  8. Then in the “Audio devices” section, select “Output to Headphones” and click on “All audio” if you want to listen to both game sounds and voice chat through headphones, or select “Chat Audio“. In this case, the voice chat will sound from the headphones, and the game sounds from the TV
  9. In the “Audio Devices” section, you can adjust the volume of the headphones and microphone level

This method is suitable for those who have Bluetooth headphones that do not have a 3.5mm jack.

A Bluetooth transmitter is a device that helps you transfer audio from one source to another Bluetooth device (in this case, wireless headphones). We recommend choosing transmitters with low latency, as otherwise there may be a significant delay in sound, which will spoil the impression of the gaming process. 

Here are instructions on how to connect Bluetooth headphones to a PS4 using a Bluetooth transmitter:

  1. Put the Bluetooth transmitter into the USB port of your PS4 
  2. Turn on headphones and let them pair with PS4
  3. Select “Settings
  4. Click on “Devices
  5. Select “Audio devices
  6. Go to “Output device” and select “USB Headset
  7. In the “Audio Devices” section, you can adjust the volume of the headphones and microphone level 
Method 2: Using an audio cable
