What kind of budget does your friend have? If pricier items are feasible, the SteelSeries H is a very good wireless headset. It connects to your PS4 via base station that plugs into the optical audio, so you can actually get surround sound on it. Actual sound quality is very good, and it comes with two batteries, so once one runs down, you can swap it out for the other, and recharge the drained battery in the base station. Has a decent microphone as well. This is the headset I'm using.

I use a turtle beach stereo headset. Perfectly solid $50 headset. Works on the PS3/PS4 and PC. I refuse to pay premium pricing for "surround headphones." A well mixed stereo track offers a convincing soundstage when placed directly on the ears.

That's a sick headset but he doesnt want to spend that much. More of a budget price range is my guess

There's a wireless model. That's the one I have.

Seemed to climb up in price, though there are other sellers that are selling it at $50.

i like the pulse elites but they are rather fragile, use them for all audio output on my receiver (even Xbox One!).
