There are several options to connect your PS4 to your Vest. Choose the right option for you, which depends on your specific hardware and needs:

  • Connecting the Vest to the PS4 USB output

  • Connecting the Vest to the PS4 controller

  • Connecting the Vest to the rear optical output (exists in certain models)

  • Connecting the Vest to the front USB port

  • Connecting the Vest to your TV set


Please note: Connecting your Vest to your TV with the TV's internal Bluetooth can cause a significant delay and therefore isn't recommended.


Please refer to the below sections to choose the right connection type for you.


USB connection

For this type of connection, you'll need a Type-C to Type-A USB cable. Please note: If the audio signal coming out of the PS4 USB isn't strong enough, you should consider the other connection options.

  1. Connect the Type-A end of the USB cable to the PS4 console USB port.
  2. Connect the Type-C end of the USB cable to the Vest's Type-C input.
  3. Connect your headphones to the Vest's headphone jack.
  4. Go to the sound settings of your PS4. Make sure the output device is configured correctly
  5. Make sure the PS4 output volume is set to max.


Wired Connection, using the PS4 controller

  1. Connect the Vest Edge to the PS4  controller, using the provided 3.5mm cable. One end to the controller's output jack and the other to Vest's audio-in jack.

  2. Connect your headphone to the Vest's headphone jack.

  3. If you'd like to use the PS4 in-voice chat channel, you should connect your Vest to the PS4 controller using a TRRS (4 pins) cable, like the one that comes with your Vest.

 

Wired Connection, using an optical (S/PDIF) audio cable (for PS4 models with optical output)

  1. Connect one end of the digital audio cable to an S/PDIF (optical audio) port on the console.

  2. Connect the other end of the cable to a Digital Optical to Analog Converter.

  3. Connect your Vest to the converter analog output, using a 3.5mm cable.

  4. Connect your headphone to the Vest's headphone jack.

  5. If you would like to use the PS4 in-voice chat channel, connect a 3.5mm dummy plug to the controller audio jack. Then, go to PS4 settings and set the input and output devices.

 

Wireless connection, using a low-latency USB Bluetooth transmitter 

  1. Connect a low-latency Bluetooth transmitter to the PS4 USB port.

  2. Pair your Vest with the Bluetooth transmitter. Refer to the transmitter's manual for pairing instructions.

  3. Connecting your headphones: We recommend that you connect your wired headphones directly to your Vest. Alternatively, if your Bluetooth transmitter is a dual-link one, you can pair both the Vest and your Bluetooth headphones, concurrently. 

Please note: 

  • Dual-link connections are not 100% reliable and you might experience low audio quality when pairing two receivers concurrently. That depends on the specific transmitter and receivers.

  • A dual-link, low-latency connection can be established only if your headphones support low-latency, as does the Vest. The actual latency will always be dictated by the higher latency device.

  • An in-voice chat channel cannot be established with this type of connection.

  3. Pair your Vest with the Bluetooth transmitter. 

  4. Connecting your headphones: You can connect wired headphones directly to your Vest. Alternatively, if your Bluetooth transmitter is a dual-link one, you can pair both the Vest and your Bluetooth headphones, concurrently. You can also skip this step and use your TV speakers instead.

  5. If you'd like to use the PS4 in-voice chat channel, connect a 3.5mm dummy plug to the controller audio jack. Then, go to PS4 settings and set the input and output devices.

USB headphones

You can connect both USB headphones and a Vest to a PS4 simultaneously only if your USB headphones have an additional output port (e.g.: Astro headphones). Please reach out to our support team at support@woojer.com for more details.
