The very popular ASTRO range of gaming headsets will be compatible with both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One it has been confirmed.

In an email sent to users, ASTRO explained that it’s headsets will be able to deliver Dolby Digital Game Audio on the PS4 just like they currently do with the Playstation 3. Voice chat using the headsets will also be possible upon the release of a post-paunch firmware update for the PS4 (when this might occur is not stated).

Xbox One gamers will similarly have no problems in terms of receiving full Dolby Digital Game Audio via ASTRO headsets. However, in order to use the chat function an adapter will be required. This is because of a new proprietary design for the chat connector implemented by Microsoft. ASTRO has confirmed that such adapters will be available, but until such time chat will not be possible using an ASTRO headset.
