Using the LS30 / LS31 with the new PS4 "slim"



Sony has released an updated version of the Playstation 4 that does not include an optical output.  There are a few options to make these headsets work with this new version of the Playstation 4.


Option 1:  Set the PS4 to output all audio via the USB port.  You can find step by step instructions here:  LS30/LS31 Set up for PS4 Slim 


Option 2:  Many TVs feature an optical out port.  You can connect the optical cable between the optical out on the TV and the USB base station of the headset.  You will need to set your TV to output "PCM Stereo" and make sure that the TV is set to output audio to the optical port.  Please refer to the User Guide of your TV for instructions on how to do this.  If you are passing the HDMI from your PS4 through an AV Receiver before the TV, you may need to change the setting on the AV Receiver to allow the audio to pass to the TV.  Please refer to your AV Receiver User Guide for instructions on how to do this.  Once you have this setup follow all the rest of the setup instructions here: LS30/LS31 Setup for PS4


Option 3:  An HDMI to Optical audio extractor is available from many sources.  This adapter will connect between the HDMI output of the PS4 and your TV.  You would then set the adapter to Stereo PCM (2 channel) output and connect the optical cable between the adapter and the LS30 USB base station.  We have tested this unit available from Amazon with the headset, but other units should work as well:
