If you're not opposed to getting things separately, then I have some recommendations and suggestions. There's also some info you should know if you want to get better value for your money. I've explained in the least technical way I can. Just ask if you have questions.

🎧 Headphones



  • AKG K612 Pro
  • AKG K701
  • AKG K702
  • Audio-Technica ATH-AD700x
  • Audio-Technica ATH-AD900x
  • Beyerdynamic DT880
  • Beyerdynamic DT990
  • Philips Fidelio X2
  • Sennheiser Game One (headset)
  • Sennheiser HD558/HD579
  • Sennheiser HD598/HD599


  • AKG K550
  • Audio Technica ATH-MSR7
  • Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro Plus
  • Beyerdynamic DT770
  • Sennheiser Game Zero (headset)
  • V-MODA Crossfade M-100


    The first thing you should determine is whether you need sound isolation or not.

  • Open-back: the earcups have perforations/openings that allow sound to freely pass through. This often provides a larger soundstage and better imaging.

  • Closed-back: the earcups have solid shells that isolate sound from passing through to various extent.


    Next, you should figure out which sound signature you prefer.

  • Balanced/flat/neutral: doesn't over- or under-emphasize the bass or treble.
  • Warm: emphasizes the bass.
  • Dark: recesses the treble. A headphone can be warm and dark.
  • Bright: emphasizes the treble. Bass may be recessed.
  • U-shape: emphasizes the bass and treble a little.
  • V-shape: emphasizes the bass and treble more than U-shaped.
  • Mid-forward: the mids are louder than the bass and treble. The mids may be emphasized or the bass and treble may be recessed.

    Sub-bass is where rumble lies. This is easier to find in closed-back headphones. Mid-bass is where impact lies.


    Lastly, you should know what sound characteristics constitute positional audio and pertain to immersion.

  • Soundstage: is produced by the headphone, not the game. It's perceived space and environment of sound. It's the size of the sound field. A small soundstage makes the environment around you sound confined or boxed in. With a large soundstage, the environment sounds much more spatial, open and natural. You can't comprehend it without experiencing it.

  • Imaging: is inherent to the audio content. It's how accurately the locations of sounds/objects are reproduced.

  • Separation: is how you discern individual sounds from a range of overlapping sounds. This is only important for competitive shooters.


    Of the listed headphones, I have Audio-Technica ATH-AD700x, Beyerdynamic DT990 (600 ohms), Philips Fidelio X2 and Sennheiser HD598.

  • AD700x: is bright with recessed sub-bass. It has clean bass and a little harsh treble. It has a huge soundstage, excellent imaging, separation and clarity, and great detail retrieval.

    It has a lightweight and durable build without flimsy and squeaky parts. The earpads are made of smooth, non-itchy velour and are very soft. They have a good size and depth for average sized adult ears and have very good quality. The clamping force isn't too tight or too loose for an average sized adult head. The wing design is a gimmick to me; the headphone slides down and rests on my ears, but using a headband cover like this prevents it from happening and makes the headphone extremely comfortable to wear.

  • DT990: has emphasized mid-bass, recessed sub-bass, and very emphasized treble. The bass is clean. The treble is slightly splashy and somewhat sharp. It has a huge soundstage and excellent imaging, separation, clarity and detail retrieval. The 600-ohm version requires an external/dedicated headphone amplifier or a sound card.

    It has a lightweight and sturdy build without flimsy and squeaky parts. The earpads are made of silky smooth velour and are very soft. They have a good size and depth and have great quality. The clamping force is just right. It's extremely comfortable to wear.

  • Fidelio X2: has emphasized sub-and mid-bass and treble. It has clean bass and smooth treble, meaning the treble isn't harsh, scratchy, splashy, piercing or anything else that's offensive to the ears. The soundstage is very wide, like the others I've mentioned, but it lacks some depth. It's probably only noticeable if you play competitively or compare it head-to-head with other headphones that are deeper. This affects the imaging from front to back somewhat. The imaging from left to right is excellent. Separation and clarity are excellent. Detail retrieval is great. The bass overpowers sound cues a lot.

    It's a little heavy and has a sturdy build without flimsy and squeaky parts. The earpads have great quality and are soft, very roomy, and made of smooth velour. The clamping force is more on the tighter side. The comfort is very good.

  • HD598: is mid-forward with recessed sub-bass. It has clean bass and smooth treble. I haven't used it much, so my impressions of its competitive performance are that it has a large soundstage and good imaging, separation and detail retrieval. Clarity is excellent.

    It has a lightweight and sturdy build without flimsy and squeaky parts. The earpads are soft and made of smooth velour. They have a good size and depth and have very good quality. The clamping force is tight, especially when the headphone is new. It's comfortable to wear.

    I also compare to AKG K52, AKG Q701, HiFiMan HE400i (the revision), HiFiMan HE500, HyperX Cloud, Philips SHP9500, Monoprice Monolith M1060, Sennheiser HD700, Sennheiser HD800, Superlux HD662 EVO, Superlux HD668B, Superlux HD669, Superlux HD681 EVO, Tritton Pro+ and Turtle Beach Ear Force XP Seven MLG Pro.

    My evaluations are based on games -- not music. I test headphones mostly in BF:BC2, BF3, BF4 and R6S.


    🔊 Microphones


  • Antlion ModMic 4: it attaches magnetically to a base that sticks to either earcup. It's easy to attach and detach and doesn't fall off unless you accidentally hit it or violently move your head around. The mic has a flexible neck and can be tilted up and out of sight. It has a very good build quality and great sound quality for voice chat. It's compatible with all headphones.

  • V-MODA BoomPro: it inserts directly into the headphone, replacing the original headphone cable. It's compatible with Philips Fidelio X2 and V-MODA Crossfade M-100. It has a great build quality with an aluminum gooseneck and a tangle-free and braided cable. It has volume and mic mute controls. It has great sound quality for voice chat.


  • Antlion ModMic 5
  • Audio-Technica AT2020USB
  • Blue Snowball
  • Blue Yeti
  • Massdrop Minimic (currently unavailable)
  • Neewer Clip on Mini Lapel Microphone
  • Samson Go
  • Sony ECMCS3
  • Zalman ZM-Mic1


    Additional gear and accessories


    Volume and mic mute control for use with DS4:

  • adjustR
  • Fosmon
  • Insignia
  • Lucid Sound AdjustR

    USB adapters:

  • Ugreen, single jack
  • Ugreen, dual jacks

    Amplifier and DAC combos:

  • Audioengine D1
  • FX Audio DAC-X6
  • Micca OriGen G2
  • Schiit Magni 3 + FiiO D3
  • SMSL SD793-II

    To use an amp, you need a DAC (digital-to-analog converter) because USB and optical are digital signals and PS4 has no analog outputs. USB DACs may reverse the left and right channels or not work at all, so I have only included DACs that use optical, which is completely reliable. You can use an HDMI-to-optical converter if you have Slim.


    Sound cards:

  • Astro MixAmp Pro TR
  • Creative Sound BlasterX G1
  • Creative Sound BlasterX G5
  • Turtle Beach Elite Pro TAC




    To connect the headphone and ModMic, Minimic, Neewer clip-on mic, ECMCS3 or ZM-Mic1 to the controller, you need a Y-splitter with three black rings on the connector, which is called a TRRS or 4-pole Y-splitter.

    If you want to use an amp and a DAC, then the mic must connect to the controller with a Y-splitter. The headphone connects directly to the amp. To avoid this clutter, you can use a sound card / USB adapter instead. You may have to use a Y-splitter if it has just one jack.

    The BoomPro doesn't require a Y-splitter and works only with the controller, sound cards, and other devices that have a TRRS jack, meaning they are designed for headsets. The BoomPro doesn't work with amps and DACs.

the best decision i made was in getting the Hyper X Cloud Core headset. It is identical in every way to the Hyper X Cloud 2, same sound drivers, same everything EXCEPT it doesn't come with virtual surround (which is trash) or the control box which isn't needed and trust me it would get annoying.

but anyways I come thru clearly to my friends, it sounds awesome, detachable mic if you want to use it to listen to music on your phone, super durable feeling cord and super comfortable (I have a huge head.) And my favorite little bonus is that it came with an extra cord that makes using it as a computer headset seamless. It's awesome.

i'd look for it on sale, i got it for much cheaper at Gamestop...ur basically getting the quality of a Cloud II at a much cheaper price.

u/SimplystGuy · 1 pointr/PS4

What you say makes sense... I had a 2TB originally as I stated and after it was all set up it was actually 1.7TB. I don't ever recall going below 1TB and tbh I haven't got many games (especially not 130!). There is a handful of games I want to play I'm not a gamer I just play now and again but I literally have no space for even a single game update. As the Seagate/Samsung 2TB I had before stopped working after a while (could just have been that I got a faulty drive), I'm a bit off on the idea of going again for another Seagate internal. But it seems to be different for each user... Some have no issues as you don't either.

I would like to download all the free PS+ games even though I won't play any of them just so it's there and I don't have to wait to download or install it.

Also, the 5TB externals I was referring to are both desktop drives with AC adopters and are the 3.5" type if I remember correctly. Here are the links:



The advantage of having the internal is the SSHD even though only slight difference it's a difference nonetheless if I'm right. And it comes with 5 year limited warranty. And you're right I know I won't use the 2TB up right now. Like I said only a handful more games id play right now until newer titles are released. If on average a game is 50GB that's an extra 20 games if not more I can install on the 2TB compared to the stock drive.

The advantage of the 5TB external drive is well it's 5TB so extra £40 for 3TB more than the Firecuda. I don't know about the read write speeds though which is a question I have for anyone. Don't know about the robustness of these hard drives as they seem "affordable". Would these drives go slow as the drive fills up? I know I said load times don't matter as much but would it be significantly affected as more applications are installed?

Is USB 3 better than the internal option? I know I keep asking this but I can't get my head around it. I could buy both but there's no point. Not for now anyway. Maybe in a years time or end of this year I could get a external if I went internal now. It should be a easy decision but I keep going back and forth. Some people say the SSHD is good after a few loads, does this mean say if I regularly play GTA would the game load up faster if I kept closing the game and re-opening it? Or does it mean when I switch the PS4 off if the next day I play GTA again it'll load faster? I'm assuming the latter is incorrect. I make my mind up to get the internal but the fact that I can literally go down the road to pick up the external is tempting.

Could someone please compare all three? Here is the link to the SSHD


Apologies for the long reply! I'm a tech guy but I know nothing when it comes to this I keep going back and forth as I want the best deal and the best option.

u/QuantumInteger · 1 pointr/PS4

Okay, here's what you do. I know because I literally just upgrade my HDD and carefully backed up my library (which has PT in it) and successfully transferred it to a new drive.

First off, buy this drive

This one works with the PS4. It's cheaper than an equivalent naked 2TB drive ($99 something on Amazon) and you get a harddrive enclosure out it that you can reuse. You're going to take it apart and use the drive inside for your upgrade. It's not as hard as it sounds. I did it and it's very easy. Before you do anything, hook it up to your PC and format the drive to FAT32 (or just FAT if you're on Mac) and use Master Boot Record as your partition.

Gently place the knife in the crevice between the top cover and the rest of the case to wedge them far enough apart for you to pry it open yourself. Digital Foundry has a video on this. Remove the rubber covers and the screws. Gently remove the aluminum sheets covering the top of the drive and disconnect it from the SATA/USB 3.0 adapter.

To backup your games, make sure the HDD is bigger than the total install size on your PS4. Make sure that you formatted as exFAT or FAT32 and that you choose Master Boot Record instead of GPT or anything else. This is important because PS4 doesn't like anything that is not MBR and it won't recognize your drive or return an error (like there not being enough space for backup). Backing up using this method will backup your game saves, your screenshots/videos, your apps, and games to the external.

Now you're going to need the PS4 firmware. This page has the firmware you need. Be mindful which update you download because the one you want is the full firmware, not the one intended to only update the PS4. I've directly linked it here. It's about 800 MB. Put it on a thumb drive (separate from the external drive that you used to backup your games). Make sure that drive is also formatted as FAT32 or exFAT and that you have the folder tree done correctly. It should be Thumb Drive -> PS4 -> UPDATE in that order. Put the 800 MB PS4UPDATE file that you downloaded into the UPDATE folder. Make sure everything is named correctly, including the update file (don't add numbers to it).

Once that's done, just do as Digital Foundry shows you. Power everything off, push the faceplate off to expose the drive, use a Phillip screwdriver to remove the screw, pull out the harddrive cage and unscrew the harddrive. Now put the 2TB one in. Be mindful here because the Seagate drive is actually thinner than the stock drive so the screws won't align correctly. I recommend putting the drive into the cage upside down to make it easier for you to align the screws with the drive. Screw everything back in, put the drive back, and put the cover back. Connect your DS4 to the PS4 and hold down the PS button for 7 seconds until you get into the PS4 recovery (it should be pretty obvious what it is). Choose the last option to install the firmware. Connect the thumb drive and let the PS4 do its thing.

Now walk through the start up process again and then connect your external HDD. Now restore everything that you backed up. This should take a while depending on how much stuff you backed up. Notice that this backup does not transfer over your profiles so you'd have to sign back into PSN again after the upgrade. You won't have to make any changes like deactivating the PS4 before removing to the drive and activating it as primary again after installation. That's tied to your console ID, not the harddrive. Last step is to take the old PS4 harddrive and put back into the Seagate case that you took your new drive out of.

u/Luffydude · 21 pointsr/PS4

4tb is probably way too much but 2tb can easily handle 30+ games

If anyone is looking to upgrade, I'd recommend the best value for money upgrade which is Seagate's FireCuda 2TB SSHD that was released just a few months ago. Not only you get a huge storage boost, you also get better loading times. I swear my Witcher 3 loads now take 20-30 seconds less

UK link I got it for £99, it is now being sold for £120 the price fluctuates according to orders I think

US link cheaper than in the UK

u/esonique · 14 pointsr/PS4

"Best set of headphones" is a very hard thing to answer. It really depends on what you want to use them for. If it's just for gaming without a mic, I would recommend Philips L2BO/27 Fidelio Headphones.

They come with an in-line mic, but the cable is detachable and can be replaced with any 3.5mm male-to-male cable.

As others have said, if you want one with a pretty decent mic and great audio, you could try the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset.

Both of these will give you great audio, and will plug directly into the DS4 without the need for a headphone amp.

Of course these are just what I use, and just something you may want to add to your list for consideration. There may be some better choices out there.


u/FoN925 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I have a Pro with a 2TB drive installed internally. This is the drive I'm using. I just took the 2TB HDD out of the enclosure (which does void the HDD's warranty FYI) and put the 1TB HDD from the Pro back in the enclosure and use it as extra storage on my PC.

I didn't end up installing a solid state drive in my Pro. I don't care enough about load times to spend so much more money on an SSD vs a traditional HDD.

This guide has some good info to help you do the HDD swap, with pictures to help you make sure you are doing everything correctly.

If you aren't planning on backing up any of your data, the entire process takes about 15-20 minutes and is super easy. If you do plan to back up your data and transfer it to the new drive, that can add a LOT of time onto the process, depending on how much data you need to backup.

I had to backup and restore a full 1TB of data, so I spent about 12 hours getting everything transferred and ready to go. I just left the restore process going while I slept and the PS4 Pro was ready to use when I woke up the next morning.

u/stop_drop_rofl · 3 pointsr/PS4

No third party controllers, but you could try getting either new thumbsticks (Xbox One thumbsticks fit perfectly), or you could get a thumbstick cover.

Ive used GelTabz before and liked them. They add a good amount of gel thickness that should make clicking the joystick more pleasant.

Grip-It thumbstick covers are also considered very good.

u/smashadages · 2 pointsr/PS4

1. For fear of advertising my own thread... you may find these tips useful on improving your PS4 speeds. I basically had the same problem as you. I was getting 42 mbps download wired on my macbook and about 5 mbps wireless. The PS4 was getting maybe 20 mbps wired and 4 wireless. (Both wireless devices were about 10 yards from my router.) I vastly improved my speeds with the tips from my post. Hope that helps!

2. Since then, I've done two things because I had a little money to spend ($150 to be exact). I bought a new router to improve my speeds to my wireless devices and I bought a wireless bridge to my PS4. I'm now getting about 30 mbps on my PS4 when I was only getting 4 to begin with.

So #1 helps if you have no money to spend and #2 helps if you have some. If anything, I recommend just buying the $30 wireless bridge because it gives you a wired connection.

Good luck!

u/TheCrookedSerpent · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you're looking for slightly more powerful graphics (especially if you have a 4K tv) the Ps4 pro is the way to go. The Ps4 slim model is smaller but in my opinion not worth getting. Of course you have the original ps4 which is definitely a solid choice. On the issue of memory you can easily change out the standard 500 gb storage device on the original ps4 for a 2 tb one all you need is a screwdriver and a usb.

Link to instructional video: https://youtu.be/EBPsPuxa2lk

Edit: I feel that 500 gigabytes will fill quickly and 1 terabyte is a good medium between price and storage space. However, if you buy most of your games digitally I would recommend 1-2 terabytes as all the digital games will start to eat up storage and also bring the hassle of having to reinstall through the Internet rather than on disc.

u/Dwoods529 · 1 pointr/PS4

Yeah the hyperx are great, I've had mine for about a year and love it. Super comfortable and aren't made of plastic. Also, you can remove the microphone from the headset which would benefit you since you don't play much MP. Actually on sale right now on amazon.

u/Rogue11 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I purchased these X Thumbstick grips. 9 pairs for $10 I absolutely love them and have them on my Dualshock 4s as well as my 360 controllers. I made a video review for redditors asking about covers that is viewable here.

I couldn't see myself paying $5 for just one pair, and I just wanted to protect my DS4's rubber coating so I figured what I purchased was the best bang for my buck. If I had to do it over again, I would purchase the X Thumbstick grips without a second thought. If you have any questions, feel free to let me know! Hope this helps.

Here's another picture of my controllers with the covers.

u/Phimb · 1 pointr/PS4

I had the exact problem, I called Sony, sent mine back and within 6 days they sent me a new one, I believe it resets the warranty too.

Just a note, a big reason I turned mine in to Sony for a new one was not only because of the sticky button, but also because the analogue fabric was tearing; as you send your controller in, I highly recommend [these grips] (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00GH7UA32/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). Highly, recommend them, they're cheap, arrive within two days, you get two pairs, they're easy to put on, will save your analogue stick just in case and they really effective.

u/Labyrinthy · 3 pointsr/PS4

Long story short, the DualShock 4 output isn’t that great. It has limitations meaning that plugging a $20 set of headphones in will have the same maximum volume a $200 set will have. It’s best to bypass the DS4 altogether when looking for optimal audio quality. There are two ways to do this:

Get a wireless headset like the Gold headset mentioned already.

Or, you can buy an amp if you’re looking to use an existing headset. I have a pair of Sennheiser Game One headphones and I use this amp in order to make the most of them. As someone that values audio above pretty much all else, let me tell you, it was worth the money.

u/Throwawayhobbes · 3 pointsr/PS4

I presume the signal passes through from 3.5 to USB. No D-A-C is taking place.
So to answer your question yeah your not getting the full benefit without a preamp.
ATH-M50x are stereo headphones with pretty high marks on amazon.
It doesn't appear to have a mic.

I hear good things about the Astro Mix amp pro (preamp) and you can use your current headphones or another brand. It connects to the PS4 via optical cable and you will connect you Headphones via provided 3.5mm cable. This will give you 7.1 Surround Sound. Also can be hooked into a PC to interface with music and other apps you can use while gaming or twitch streaming.


Or you could buy the bundle with preamp and headphones together

I currently just have the headphones, and it's only stereo from audio jack from controller or 3.5 to usb adapter. It still sounds amazing. Has a detachable mic and custom plates and head pad you can swap out . Build quality is the best I have ever seen. I do plan on picking up the Astro mix amp pro later.

It's kinda hard to compare studio monitor headphones with gaming headphones. Two different kind of tools .

u/Lekti · 1 pointr/PS4

I use a ASTRO Mixamp pro, which emulates 7.1/5.1 over 2 channels, then I have a 3.5mm jack go from the Mixamp to my fiio a3 to power my AKG K702'S. For me personally it's an incredibly fun setup, I can hear people walking from quite far away on Titan fall 2 for example, and the surround sound emulation is spot on for positioning!

Edit: you should give Madlustenvy's thread a read over at Head-Fi, it's how I chose my current setup.


Also, there's a YouTuber called ZReviews who does really good headphone reviews if you like that kind of thing. He has a subreddit too r/ZReviews

Edit 2: Forgot to say I use a Antlion Modmic as my microphone, I like it a lot and have been told my audio quality over party chat/in game is very good.

PS4 Hard Drive: Tech Specs, Upgrade Advice, and more.


Lots of posts on the PS4 hard drive (HDD) right now, so I wanted to consolidate this info and share my experience. Hope this helps. The PS4 is shipped with a standard HDD running 5400 rpm to keep costs, heat, and noise down. To those looking at putting in extreme RPM drives (10k+), I would strongly discourage it.

Basic PS4 HDD Info

  • Make: HGST
  • Size: 500GB
  • RPM: 5400
  • Form Factor: 2.5 inch

    Upgrade Options

  • Type: SATA based 2.5 inch laptop HDDs
  • Height: Max 9.5mm
  • Prices: At the time of writing, the sweet spot is 1.5TB drives (in my option). There is essentially no premium on larger drives right now, they're running about $40 per 500GB (or thereabouts)
  • This is the largest drive I can find right now: 1.5TB HGST (9.5mm high) @ $125 - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EDIU5IW


  • Higher RPM doesn't mean faster load times. Platter size (the disks that are inside the HDD) play an equally important role. Here's a quick rule of thumb; 1) Drive size, 2) RPM, 3) cache, in that order. For example, a 1.5TB 5400RPM will have higher performance than 500GB 7200RPM.
  • To go a little deeper; if you have 4 platters in a HDD and the size of Drive A is 500GB and the size of Drive B is 2TB, then Drive B has a higher platter density (125GB vs 500GB). That means the HDD has to do less work to grab data because wherever the "head" reads the disk ("grabbing" data off the platter), it's going to "grab" more data per read from Drive B than from Drive A.
  • Hybrid drives (large HDD mixed with a small SSD) doesn't suffer from TRIM concerns, but may not be much of a performance boost unless you play the same game regularly. They get their speed by caching common files in the smaller SSD section, but they're usually not bigger than 8GB. For reference, Killzone:SF looks to be a 40GB install.


  • PS4 does not appear to currently support TRIM. If it does support TRIM, it's yet to be validated. This means that if you install an SSD drive, it will likely suffer from seriously degraded performance that it wont be worth the additional investment.


  • The best bang for your buck HDD for performance, cooling, and size will be a big 2.5 inch HDD. The biggest right now is 1.5TB (see above). If you've got extra cash, pop for a Hybrid drive but be aware these are untested right now (and caching probably will happen for OS files). Avoid SSDs until the PS4 is confirmed to support TRIM.

    Edited based on feedback in comments. Thanks!

u/dupree1993 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I'm a fan of the HyperX Cloud 2s.

Pros: They are really good build quality and comfortable (most headsets hurt my ears after any extended play), they come with fancy whistles and doodads for if I ever do get a gaming PC. Idk anything about sound really but to me they sound good. The mic is excellent quality.

Cons: They do require you to plug into the controller so not entirely wireless, although I have never found the cord bothersome. Some of the fancier things the headset does can't work on ps4 (7.1 virtual surround mainly but as you will see in many headset topics some people say a good set of stereo headphones can beat the virtual surround that many headsets tote, with these headphones I am confident with where enemies are coming from most of time).


There is one other color but it is more expensive (not sure why).

u/k3v1ng1994 · 3 pointsr/PS4

I honestly never have to worry about my battery life thanks to these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-PlayStation-DualShock-Charging-Station/dp/B00D781PSI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416764706&sr=8-1&keywords=ps4+charging
I picked these up for like half the price that they go for (£20) from HMV. Its awesome, unless you plan on playing for more than 6 hours consecutively. But even then, just pick up a second controller and it will charge both!

u/Bray4ever8 · 0 pointsr/PS4

There are a lot of factors to consider, and you do get what you pay for. I've tried the PS brand headsets and hated them.

I have Astro now and love it. But that's not even close to your budget. I know this headset is more, but I would recommend these to newcomers.


They are very comfortable and sound great! The mic isn't the best though.

u/FranklynFrankers · 1 pointr/PS4

Right, I've had some time to go over it all, and I apologise if this is wrong.

If I buy the following:

Headset: AKG K712PRO - seemed like the best universal reviews (in a reasonable price bracket!), but if you have opinions I'd be very grateful to hear them

Mic - Antlion

Amp - Astro Gaming MixAmp Pro TR Kit

As well as a headphone splitter.

It is above my budget, but if it is worth it I can wait a bit longer.

None of which might fit great now that the rubber on your controller is actually falling apart. Might require some hot glue or something else if you want them to stay in place.

A lot of people eventually switch to xbox style sticks, not just because the material doesn't fall apart but because it's actually a much better design. These compared to the DS4 sticks is night and day in terms of control and your thumb not sliding all over the place.


Not that hard to install. Hardest thing about taking the controller apart is getting the shell separated for the first time and the fact that the triggers and springs might fall out, so just work on a clean table where you'll be able to find the little springs. Watch videos on how to take it apart.

u/riversun · 4 pointsr/PS4

ordered these, completely amazing. takes about 1 day to get used to them, and for them to truly form to the stick. raised, slightly textured and soft-but-not-too-soft silicon


your thumb will never hurt again, it's great for games that require R3/L3 actions, and your stock rubber won't degrade if it hasnt already

u/Kx-Byte · 0 pointsr/PS4

Absolutely love these. Few friends got them as well. No issues whatsoever. Even better it's currently on sale.


Hopefully its the same for your country specific.

u/Loki_d20 · 1 pointr/PS4

Upgrade. You can find good 2TB that are faster than the stock for $80 by buying an external Samsung or Seagate or the like and taking out the HDD from the inside.

This is a very popular one: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FRHTTJE?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage

Been using it a while now. Worked perfectly for me.

u/Gurmooq · 5 pointsr/PS4

The Hyperx Cloud 2s are great, comfortable for long sessions, sound good and the mic is alright.

u/felixmontoya92 · 21 pointsr/PS4
  1. Here are step by step instructions on how to game share with friends and family.
  2. PS Plus is usually $60 a year. However, it is currently on sale at Gamestop and Amazon for $40.
  3. The Last of Us, Horizon Zero Dawn, Bloodborne, and Uncharted are a few of my personal favorites that I recommend.
  4. Some games might be up already but the vast majority are not. Here is a doc the sub put together with all of the best deals on games, accessories and cosoles.

You don't even need to spend 50. I'll link the one I have below. I love this thing! When I used to work tech support for Square-Enix, I used to recommend powerline adapters all the time. Basically in layman's terms, powerline adapters run your internet signal through the wiring in your house. You plug one side in by the router and plug it in via an Ethernet cord, then you plug the other adapter by your ps4 and hook it up via Ethernet. I jumped from like 15 mbps to 40. It requires zero set up other than that. I even have mine running to another router I have on my desk, so I have great wireless signal in my room. The ps4 unfortunately has the same wireless card as some of the Windows tablets. It was a huge step down from the ps3.


u/Theradox · 3 pointsr/PS4

This charging station is still probably my best purchase when it comes to the ps4. Small footprint and looks pretty nice too.

I have the "geltabz" brand ones. The gel part raises the height of the thumbstick up a mm or two but I have found the transition to be easy to adapt to. MUCH more durable than the original cover material on my DS4. I have 30+ hours on them and they seem to be a good replacement. Don't even notice them anymore.

u/Bryan-Clarke · 1 pointr/PS4

I saw your comment about the headset. There is a headset that is considered really good by both gamers and audiophiles, which is unusual cause audiophiles consider almost every gaming headset overpriced trash.

Its the HyperX Cloud 2 or the previous version the HyperX Cloud if you dont want to spend more money, i can assure you both are way better than the official ps headphones or the turtle beach.

HyperX Cloud 2

I'm probably in the minority but I hope the usb c is in the same place as the micro and they keep the bottom port. My charger is awesome and I don't think it would work with usb c.

u/PirouzAaron · 1 pointr/PS4

If you want to upgrade the internal drive to a 2TB one you can use this one, it fits in the pro and the original PS4 (not sure about the slim) and you don't need to modify the chassis. You just need to shuck the drive from the enclosure, it's pretty easy and there are videos online you can follow.

u/Lacho7994 · 2 pointsr/PS4

Yea makes sense. The other Microphone I was looking at was [this] (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00029MTMQ/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2E8S89R4FAKQB&coliid=I1AYAFG2JPEGH3) one. I know it's like 30 bucks but it has amazing reviews and would work really well with just clipping it on my headphones.

u/douche_flute · 4 pointsr/PS4

I’m not sure how loud you can get the headphones to be, but I think you can get louder results if you use a headset that has a USB sound card like this one:


I have this headset and I love it.

u/Kneegrowilly · 1 pointr/PS4


I ordered these, My rubber was nearly completely off on one joystick and starting to peel on all the others. For the price I'm pretty satisfied, they feel and look nice

u/bfhurricane · 3 pointsr/PS4

I bought the HyperX Cloud II last month for Overwatch and recommend them. Crisp sound, good mic, and very comfortable. You can use them one of two ways, by either using the provided adapter to plug it directly into a USB port on the PS4, which allows for both surround sound and volume control, or plugging them into the controller, which gives you no surround sound and stays at one volume. I stick them right into the controller, they sound perfect, but you simply won't be able to control the headset volume if you do that. I don't consider it an issue though.

By the way, I decided on them based on previous /r/ps4 threads on the same topic, they seem to be a popular choice.

u/ImCakeStep · 52 pointsr/PS4

Don't use WiFi ever. Random packet loss will happen from simple interference. Its possible the two PS4s are interfering with each other.

Just use an ethernet cable to plug the PS4 into the router. If its not possible to run a cable then buy Powerline Adapters. I honestly don't know why these are not more popular. I had to use them for years until I finally had cables run throughout the house but they pretty much saved my life as I refuse to play any sort of online game with WiFi.

u/CkPhX · 11 pointsr/PS4

This is the one he linked but for the US I think, but the one that you linked would work as well. And you have to replace the internal drive which is EXTREMELY easy to do. Here's a video that can guide you through it if you decided to do it.

u/ishkoo · 1 pointr/PS4

These are the most comfortable headphones I've ever used (memory foam). I can wear these for hours at a time without any discomfort. Works great with my PS4 and PC.

u/lostfrog1357 · 2 pointsr/PS4

Yes. There are standalone boom mics for headphones that can be attached with magnets or adhesives. You'd just need a splitter with separate mic and headphones ports to plug into your controller, then you're good to go.

Edit: Antlion Audio ModMic Attachable Boom Microphone - Noise Cancelling with Mute Switch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00R98JVVU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_o-XYBbZ7N2A91 - Here's a great option.

u/caticuss14 · 2 pointsr/PS4

The HyperX Clouds are pretty good (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00KX3TLF4/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496807260&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=hyperx+cloud&dpPl=1&dpID=41KFerym3bL&ref=plSrch). The HyperX clouds have a little box on the cord that you can switch the mute on/off and adjust volume. They also have a new version: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00SAYCVTQ/ref=psdcmw_172487_t1_B00KX3TLF4 . I haven't personally used the second version but apparently they have better audio quality. And you can't go wrong with the PlayStation Gold headset. It has the app so you can fiddle with the bass, treble etc. I personally prefer how the HyperX clouds feel on my head (the gold headset feels heavier but that may just be me).

u/TheUncleShow · 2 pointsr/PS4

Hi yes, but if you from UK, than this one below is much faster, has more cache and its 2016 model, the one on your image is very old model they been doing 128MB cache for last 2-3 years

P.S. If you want really fast drive that will be just like 90% like SSD than get hybrid drive its a regular HDD with 32GB of SSD build in, it was tested and it has about 95% load time of SSD, MUCH faster than regular drives..


u/ShadowFone · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you see yourself playing those games for numerous hours then go for it. They'll be other games out too that might peak your interest.

As for the bundle, I'd keep an eye out for black Fridays sales and also /r/PS4Deals for sale!

For the PS+, you get free games each month (sometimes good and sometimes bad) that you can give a try and see if they're your kind that you usually might not pick up. I found it to be a good experience, but that varies depending on what you're looking for.

Also, there's a sale going on for PS+ right now at Amazon for $40 for 1 year: Link here

u/InadequateUsername · 1 pointr/PS4

$10 extra if that's okay.


very good reviews, I use them when and they're excellent.

u/Taenith · 2 pointsr/PS4

Oh wow didn't realize that.


Would that be better to buy instead? Its 64$ on amazon, I didn't realize it was overpriced. I may end up waiting for black friday to buy one..

u/PTG_ · 1 pointr/PS4

I purchased these last week and they're great. I've used grip-its and the gel tabs from Gamestop and the ones from Amazon are better.

u/areallytallguy · 1 pointr/PS4

I'd just go with this one. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00AWRUIY4?cache=a1ce4efdddd42ebcebd92ec1fe9924d5&pi=SY200_QL40&qid=1411528063&sr=8-2#ref=mp_s_a_1_2 it's cheap and 200mbps is plenty when your WiFi speed is only 20mbps. It's got great reviews and if it doesn't perform well Amazon is awesome about returns.

u/glxb · 1 pointr/PS4

That's what I think of this type of charger, they would have to line up perfect and slide in to not damage port.

Are the Sony ones any better that click in and use the other port?

Edit: this one


u/Mewing_Raven · 1 pointr/PS4

Holy kittens, I love you.
This one, as far as I can tell, is actually for a headset with split headphone and mic plugs, but linked in the "other customers bought" section is this, which DOES work for single-plug headsets with mic;


Still, it didn't occur to me this would be a thing for PS4, THANK YOU!!

u/ResonantCascade · 1 pointr/PS4

I use these. They're way more comfortable, and I have way better grip now. They also slip on over the sticks, raise the top every so slightly(its a good thing) and do not damage the original stick. Also, only $6.

u/koalificated · 3 pointsr/PS4

Get these: http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-PA2010KIT-Powerline-Adapter-Starter/dp/B00AWRUIY4/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1422128425&sr=1-2&keywords=powerline+adapter

You hook one up to an outlet by your PS4 and another in an outlet by your router, connect the ethernet cables and then you've got a wired connection without having to run a 100 ft ethernet cable across your house. I couldn't play with my friends on Destiny using wifi a few months ago, but then I got these and they work great.

u/cremeegg88 · 1 pointr/PS4

I bought these things: http://www.amazon.co.uk/ORB-Controller-Thumb-Grips-4-Pack/dp/B00GH7UA32

One of the best purchases of my life so much value I highly recommend a try. I mean they are so cheap you have nothing to lose imo.

u/[deleted] · 0 pointsr/PS4

I guess that implicitly answers my question for awhile back. The default HD should be 9.5mm thick.

I've somehow managed to only play games off disks so far, and installed almost nothing to my 60 GB gen 1. So it will be nice to swap that to my PS3 so I won't have to juggle game data anymore. I had to plan ahead if I ever wanted to play MGS4 another time.

9.5mm and still 1.5 TB. No idea if the drive is good or not though.

u/ToastyEthan · 2 pointsr/PS4

I have both. The Hyper X are plug and play or usb wired. They are WAY better built, come with both pleather and velour ear cups and sound better.


u/thegreatunitor · 6 pointsr/PS4

Second. I've had the the red cloud 2 for over a year now and they are magical. They are very comfortable, lightweight and the microphone does a pretty good job of blocking background noise.


u/-Imnus- · 1 pointr/PS4

I guess your PSN account is from EU, you don't need to delete it, just create an US PSN account, you don't need a US Proxy. Then use your Credit Card that I assume is from the US too to buy a PS+ Sub on PSN or buy a Digital Code from Amazon (the'll send the code to your e-mail address, you'll need a US billing address, you can use a fake one).

If you insist on using your European PSN account, which I don't recommend since everything is more expensive in Europe, there are some options: UK - Digital Code or Rest of the World - Digital Code.

By the way remember that the game and DLC need to be from the same region, so if for example you want to buy a Add-On for one of your PS+ games from your US PSN account you need to buy it using a US PSN account, but if you want an Add-On for a EU retail game you need to buy it using your EU PSN Account.

You will be able to play the games (including multiplayer) with any account but I recommend using your PS+ Account since that way you'll have access to the Cloud Saves system. Remember to set your PS4 as Primary Console on your accounts.

u/ctrlaltd1337 · 1 pointr/PS4

You're better off buying these. You get an additional 7 sets for $5 more.

I've used them forever and they're great.

u/usrevenge · 2 pointsr/PS4

I believe it was this one

you take the HDD out of the external casing and the actual hard drive is samsung.

back when i did this you almost couldn't find the 2TB drive separate and I still think it's cheaper to get the external and take the drive out of it.

then you can take the old ps4 hard drive and put inside the external enclosure and with a little work and formating it you can turn it into an external drive for your xbox one, wii-u (i think) or for your pc.

looking at my ps4 i actually only have 850gb of space but i just installed overwatch and re-installed TESO which is like 70gb so yea.

2TB should be fine i have about a dozen games installed i have no plan on playing again but i just leave it there because meh (example, borderlands handsome collection and black ops 3 combined taking 90gb)

u/TheDirtyThirty_ · 1 pointr/PS4

I linked to the wrong vid.... around $200 all together but if you get the previous version which are still just as good then even cheaper and yes, you need the amp.



u/cameronks · 3 pointsr/PS4

Im sure there is nothing wrong with this stand, but it's weird the US never got the "official" Sony stand. It's out in Europe.

We also never got the official DS4 charging cradle. I love the design of that thing.


u/tiff92 · 1 pointr/PS4

I still have the first controller that came with my PS4 on launch day. Very soon after the analog grips began to tear so I looked into some analog covers, found these and they are much better than the original grips. Use the ones with loads of dots on for maximum comfort and grip. I haven't had to purchase them again. They are very sturdy.

u/TheEternal21 · 3 pointsr/PS4

They're cheap enough, where you can order different types and see which one works best. I ordered from 3 different places, and ended up using the ones I tried the first time:

But you really can't go wrong with any other ones you see on Amazon.

u/tubzgaming · 3 pointsr/PS4

I use: ORB Controller Thumb Grips 4-Pack (PS4)
The 2 Xbox360 Grips feel just like the 360 ones which feels great on the DS4 imo

u/legendisreal · 1 pointr/PS4

As someone who doesn't know a damn thing about HDDs, is there a specific type that will fit the PS4? I just saw this deal (though I'm in Australia it still seems pretty good), is that what you've used?

u/zambezy · 4 pointsr/PS4

I have these and I like them well enough. I'm still thinking about swapping for Xbox One sticks though because they are that much better IMO

u/-slate- · 2 pointsr/PS4

1.5TB HGST 5,400 is my recommendation.

Don't know where you are from so:

UK - with delivery to Europe


This is the one I went with, pretty good price for size and a very reliable make. Works just perfectly.

I'd stay away from 7,200rpms, the gain in speed you get is utterly minimal (seconds) and could risk overheat and SSD's may give you an advantage, but they are not worth the extra mortgage to purchase.

u/rabidpiano86 · 1 pointr/PS4


I bought these. They do come with ethernet cables that are about three feet long so you may not have to buy an extra cable.

As far as speed and strength, they're just like having an ethernet cord plugged directly into your modem or router. The set above runs at 200Mbps, and since my internet is 28 down / 1.5 up, there's no bottleneck as far as that goes.

The adapters are about the size of a credit card. They're very small. They simply plug it and sync with each other!

u/Redizded · 1 pointr/PS4

Buy some thumb grips for your dualshock 4. I don't know if the stock grips have been fixed by sony (they would wear and tear easily on launch ds4), but the feeling is just better with those on.

u/summertimeinthelbc · 1 pointr/PS4

Good bass, wide soundstage. It’s recommended you do ear pad mods for comfort however.


u/georgios82 · 2 pointsr/PS4

The one you posted on your link is a conventional hdd. However there is a hybrid SSHD with a few bucks more that performs better. I went for that one: firecuda 2tb

Now I can't really see the benefits of getting an ssd; yes they are definitely faster but the cost for a 2tb is insanely high (more than the whole console it self) and for what? Faster loading times? Firecuda is already quite fast imo

u/normsnutty · 0 pointsr/PS4

FYI the ones you linked are for a PC, you might need to search for something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-ST2000LX001-FireCuda-Internal-Drive/dp/B01M1UQQT5/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1542579229&sr=8-3&keywords=2tb+internal+hard+drive+ps4

Personally i have a 2tb internal hard drive and its so much better having that extra storage but if you want, PS4 does support external hard drives

u/DanielOceanVideos · 1 pointr/PS4

Question: Amazon's Customer Q&A section for the Kingston Hyper X Cloud II states the following:
"The virtual 7.1 surround sound is supported through the USB sound card only when used on a computer. The Cloud II is officially supported with the PS4 using the 3.5mm audio jack plugged into the controller. It can be used with the USB sound card but as the PS4 does not have the drivers to run the sound card it will only support pass through sound. When used that way the 7.1, volume and mic control buttons are disabled; only the mic mute switch on the side will work."

Is this correct? In other words, no virtual 7.1 when using the headset with a PS4.

Here is the Amazon Link:

u/Ps4_and_Ipad_Lover · 1 pointr/PS4

Not a problem just type ps plus on Amazon or here is a link for the 50 buck one http://amzn.com/B004RMK5QG and if you want a game off the psn store just search psn card and the amount you want like 10 and ect and if there is a card it will show up on Amazon.

personally? a40s. always have, i had one of the higher end turtle beaches in the mw2 era and those were good but broke in about a year and a half so got myself a set of a40s and they've been good ever since however i've heard [these] (http://www.amazon.co.uk/HyperX-Cloud-Gaming-Headset-Mobile/dp/B00SAYCVTQ) are a good budgetable gaming headset however you may need to look into if they work with your xbox, you might have to get the xbox adaptor thing.

u/Carb122 · 1 pointr/PS4

Only when used via usb it has 'synthetic' 7.1 surround sound, if your using direct from 3.5mm it's just stereo I believe. To be honest, even when I play games on my PC (pubg) I've never really used the 7.1, I've turnt it on to see what it's like but I don't use it that often. I'm using them on h1z1 beta right now and they are fine.


You can see in the 5th picture the extra little USB cable / volume & mic volume buttons and 7.1 button, it also comes with cloth and leather ear cups to change to suit your needs, detachable mic

u/Berenwulf · 0 pointsr/PS4

If you have the money this is great! But for everyone else buy an SSHD it's better than the normal hard drive (not as good as a SSD) and it's so much cheaper.

I bought this 2.0TB SSHD:

u/dmize · 1 pointr/PS4

I was probably one of the first people to reply on the 1.5 TB HDD. lol. I ordered one right before PS4 launch and left a comment when I put it in.

Basically, the 1.5TB HDD is amazing in the PS4. Load times will be marginally better on a Hybrid, but considering the partition that is Solid state (Hybrid is a mix of Solid State and Disc) isn't big enough to put games on, you will barely see any difference. You also have no control over what goes on that SSD portion of the drive.

Go with the 1.5TB, 500gb more space and you won't notice a loss in comparison.


This is the drive I bought and have used since day 1.

u/_Hahn · 3 pointsr/PS4

Man I wish I'd seen that! It looks like that is the best deal Amazon has offered. I'm tracking to see if it gets low again but I usually buy at $40

Well.. I just buy the zalman mic and a startech splitter to connect my ATH headphones to the DS4. I couldn't do it like you say so... I spent 15€ and my headphones have a really good mic now :D

Could you confirm that I bought the correct items?


Thanks again :D

I bought these, Geltabz
The top part of the left thumb stick was peeling off. I installed the Geltabz and love the feel as I didn't like the way the thumbs felt on the DS4.

u/hiimnewhere123 · 1 pointr/PS4

I don't think there's a way to make it louder through the controller. However I think something like this might help. Maybe try to find one with a volume adjust feature on it.

Quick edit: Do NOT buy the one I linked. I just looked at the description and it said the sound output for left and right channels are reversed when used with a PS4. Just use the link as an example :)

u/hantyapp · 1 pointr/PS4

I have the official PS dock charger thingy (one of these - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-PlayStation-DualShock-Charging-Station/dp/B00D781PSI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1418023379&sr=8-4&keywords=ps4+charger - Although not at that price!) And it works just fine. I like the fact that it uses the charging dock at the bottom of the controller, and not the USB port, which I am not convinced will survive the years of plugging and unplugging that I expect a controller to go though. I know that micro USB is designed for 10,000 cycles, but I like using the more durable looking option, and having a fallback if that breaks.

u/ArboristDan · 3 pointsr/PS4

Now I found my R3/L3 buttons did not return fully to their resting position (I could pull on them and then they would release fully, try it yours may be the same...) so these covers would rub a little when fully extended. So I removed the original rubber from the grip and added 1 (very important 1) drop of superglue then applied this grip by turning it inside out and flipping it over the plastic analog sticks. It no longer rubs and is actually better then the original.

So what I did for my controllers was buy any of [these] (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=metal+ps4+thumbstick&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ametal+ps4+thumbstick)

After getting those on I got grips

Finally if you get sweaty hands while playing like a lot of people I HIGHLY recommend [squid grip] (http://www.amazon.com/SquidGrip-Controllers-controller-included-playstation-4/dp/B00KVKDNY4/ref=sr_1_1_twi_3?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1421194990&sr=1-1&keywords=squid+grip)

If you opt for the squid grip make sure you wipe your controller down with iso alcohol so theres no grease or crap on it when you apply the grips and read the damn instructions.

I would go with the 1.5TB. I've heard hybrid there really is not much performance increase. Other than that, I'd read these comments and go on tech sites doing more research before thinking about upgrading. http://www.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/PlayStation_4_Hard_Drive_Speed_Test_Comparison

u/preddevils6 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I went with this one, and i havn't had any issues. It is the same brand as the old one already inside your ps4. It really wasn't hard to install. There are great youtube videos showing you how to do it. The only confusing part for me was downloading the update file to the flash drive. here is playstations official steps to do it. Make sure when you save the file you have a folder named PS4 and inside of that folder one named UPDATE. put the update file inside that folder as PS4UPDATE.PUP and you will be fine. Seems like a complicated process, but it really isnt. took me less than 20 mins and i am shitty with tech like this! Enjoy the extra space!

There are also cheap mics like the Zalman Mic. You'll need an adapter like this that combines heaphones and mics if you end up choosing one that has a separate cord (Like modmic).

I have replaced the original with this and have not have any issues until this game, and non after it. Interesting.

This is the one I got and I'm very happy with it:


Just remember you need a USB drive to upgrade your HDD (you have to put the latest PS4 firmware on the drive and install it during the process).

Buying $200 worth of DAC/Amp equipment for $150 headphones going into a game console is way not worth it.

/u/LordanTroi, if you're sitting right beside your PS4 in front of a monitor like I'm imagining (since you used to plug in your headphones directly into your monitor), just go ahead and get a USB to 3.5mm adapter and call it a day. Your volume will be fine. Don't get type C -> 3.5mm; the PS4 doesn't have a type C port. It's the normal blocky one we've been using for ages, that's called USB type A.

I’m not affiliated in any way on this... but you’re going to need a bigger HD, here’s a quick and easy option - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TKFEE5S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_xAtYBbJ4PBB1H

I agree you shouldn't have to pay for a defect. However I would recommend getting these http://www.amazon.com/GelTabz-Performance-Thumb-Grips-PlayStation-4/dp/B00GOOSV98. They are amazing and I use them even in my controllers that don't have the peeling problem.

I'm looking at a couple on Amazon, either

GelTabz Performance Thumb Grips - PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 by InterWorks Unlimited, Inc. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GOOSV98/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_G5lkub1TB7EYV

Grip-iT Analog Stick Covers by Total Control http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003NSLGW2/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_59lkub0ZHM3BH

I think I've heard from a couple friends that preferred the GelTabz

I have this one pretty sure it's the cheapest option, just remove it from the case and it will fit in the PS4.

Edit: Don't get the 4tb one it will likely be too thick
