The easiest way to get surround out of PS4 games with a headset is to buy the Sony Gold Wireless. You’d still get pretty good stereo audio with the RIG model, though.

Here’s my article about the limited ways that Sony allows you to use surround through headphones. I’m hoping they’ll change this in the next generation and go for a full software solution, but I’m guessing they won’t since the Gold Headset is a big seller!

The New Gold Headset is decent if you don’t mind its lackluster microphone!
