For one, it has sound quality that capitalizes on the PS4’s audio buff, making games like God of War, Uncharted 4 and, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us more immersive than ever before. Also, you can use the headset beyond the console; use it for your mobile or even PC as long as you take advantage of its 3.5mm jack that comes along with it. The only small flaws we can say is that the PlayStation Platinum Wireless Headset has a very muffled mic quality and is not the most ergonomic build. But despite that, it is still a great headset.
