2.  Connect the square end of the optical cable to the "Digital Out (optical)" port on the rear of the PS4.  Please note that the PS4 "slim" does not have an optical out port.  See here for PS4 "slim" instructions.

4.  Connect the base station to the USB port on the PS4.  If using a PS4 Pro, do not use the front USB ports for 30 base station.  Please either use the USB port in the rear or see this article on other options.

5.  Connect the boom microphone to the oval shaped port in the left earcup.  Make sure to connect it to the proper port.  Using the wrong port will cause chat audio to not work.
