Can You Use AirPods to Chat With Other PS4 Gamers?
While this post illustrates how to link AirPods to a PS4, there is one drawback to this method: Despite the fact that AirPods have a microphone, you cannot communicate with other gamers (as anyone who has used them for phone calls knows).
This is due to the fact that most Bluetooth adapters only deliver audio from the PS4 to your headphones, not the other way around. You’ll need headphones designed exclusively for the PS4 for this (or other gaming consoles). Still, if all you want to do is listen to music without disturbing others, a Bluetooth adaptor is a terrific solution.
