    Question how to connect 3.5 mm headphones

    hey there.
    i have over ear headphones and right now i connect them through the dualshock. but i think the sound can be better if ill find a way to connect them through the optical out on the ps4.
    is there a way to do that? will i get better sound from my headphones? (its sennheiser's so the sound should be really good)

    thank you!

    Im pretty sure you would only need the optical out if you are using a surround sound system or surround headphones.
    Using regular headphones you will only get stereo anyway and I doubt it actual sound quality would better if that's what you mean.

    I use the optical out for my 'gaming' headphones for eg,but they're wired True Surround headphones.
    The optical out plugs into a sound processor box,and the headphones are plugged into the PS4's USB port.So that way I can control sound levels for front,back,woofer and center.Just a like a speaker set up. So in theory anyway,great for FPS games.
    So its a whole diff set up.
