I love my set of Bose QC35 headphones. I love them even more as I got them free with a phone contract back in 2018, given I’d previously baulk at paying more than £80 for headphones. But the best compliment I can give them is that if they were stolen tomorrow, I’d replace them immediately.
As an equally happy owner of a PS4, I wondered: can the Bose QC35 headphones connect to a Sony PS4 as a gaming chat headset? Yes, but with caveats. Here’s what you need to know.
Good news and bad news here. The good news is that they can work as a chat headset, the bad news is that they can’t without a bit of extra expenditure on your part – don’t worry, it’s not too much.
The TL;DR version of this is that you need the Bose QuietComfort 25 headphone inline mic/remote cable for Samsung and Android devices. It’s *very* important that you don’t buy the iPhone version, which won’t work.
While it’s possible third-party solutions may work, I recommend you just swallow the extra cost and buy the official one. £21.95 is a bit much for a bit of cabling, but still significantly cheaper than, say, a PlayStation Gold headset.
