afterglow-lvl1A video game console in the mold of the Sony PS4 is definitely something that will offer hours of endless entertainment. In fact, if you were to hook up your PS4 to a souped up home entertainment system, it would definitely get the most out of the sound effects that the sound team put into the game. For those who like to play when the rest of the world is in slumber, a good pair of headphones will fit the bill perfectly, and Afterglow has come up with its LVL 1 and LVL 3 headsets which were specially made for the Sony PS4.

This third party accessories manufacturer has come up with its officially licensed Afterglow LVL series headsets for the Sony PS4, where the LVL 1 is a chat headset, while the LVL 3 is a wired headset. Last but not least, the LVL 5 is a Quad Boost driver headset, and regardless of which particular model that you decide to settle for, all of them will arrive in several variants, including white and camo shades.

Matt Hiler of PDP shared, “The LVL 1 and LVL 3 headsets for PS4 fill a wide variety of gaming needs that range from basic to premium. Gamers can choose the headset that’s right for their game-play, and enjoy endless hours of striking high-quality audio.”

The LVL 1 will be the inexpensive wired chat headset option, where it hooks straight to the controller with a 3.5mm headset jack. Apart from that, you get to enjoy crystal-clear communication via a noise-cancelling microphone as well as a flexible folding boom. In addition, the LVL 1 will also come with in-line chat volume and microphone muting controls, retailing for $19.99 apiece.

As for the $29.99 LVL 3, this is a more advanced wired headset that plugs directly into the controller’s 3.5mm headset jack. It has powerful 40mm Neodymium drivers for game and chat audio and in-line microphone muting and volume controls. Last but not least, the $49.99 LVL 5 wired headset is the most expensive of the lot, sporting Afterglow’s signature LED lighting, a Quad Boost driver that enables the adjustment of bass levels in-game, as well as easily-accessible volume and mic muting controls that are conveniently located on the ear cup.
