Here’s our guide to output all PS4 audio through traditional headphones or earbuds via the DualShock 4 controller. All you need is a pair of earphones with a 3.5mm jack, and you’re pretty much good to go.

Guide to using Headphones with the PS4 Controller

Here’s how you can output all PS4 audio through the DualShock 4, using a pair of standard headphones or earbuds.

Plug the Headphones in to the PS4 Controller

Connect any pair of headphones with a 3.5mm adapter into the slot on the bottom of the DualShock 4 controller, located between the underside of the analogue sticks.

Hold the PlayStation Button

This is the button located between the analogue sticks in the lower half of the DualShock 4 controller. Hold this down until the Quick Menu appears on the left of the screen.

Select Adjust Devices

At the top of the menu, select the ‘Sound/Devices’ icon using the X button on the DualShock 4 controller. You’ll be taken to a second tier of the Quick Menu screen.

Turn on All Audio Output

Scroll down to ‘Output to Headphones’ option using the d-pad and press the X button. Select the option ‘All Audio’ from the sub-menu and press the X button again. You can change the volume by pushing the d-pad left and right in the ‘Volume Control (Headphones)’ toggle located just above the ‘Output to Headphones’ option. If you’d prefer to just hear voice chat audio through your headphones, you can select that in the ‘Output to Headphones’ option again.

The console should remember your default settings, so whenever you connect a pair of headphones to your DualShock 4, it should work automatically moving forward.
