Setting up a gaming headset to a PS4, Xbox One, or PC  is usually a simple, straightforward, and hassle-free process. It only requires just a few steps and little time. This does not mean that you can not run into issues while trying to make the connection.

In the rest of this post, I will be providing you with the guide instructions for setting up both wired and wireless headsets to your PS4.

How To Connect Runmus Gaming Headset to PS4

Runmus gaming headset is known for its multiple platform compatibility. Most of its headset models are designed with a 3.5mm jack that is compatible with PC, PS4 controllers, Xbox One controllers, and Nintendo (audio). It is also compatible with Xbox one controller 1537, but an adapter for Xbox one controller will be required to use the headset.

Another benefit to using a gaming headset is that if you play games for many hours, you will need the comfort delivered by the ergonomic design and premium material of the Runmus headset for better comfort.

Now, there are two main ways you can connect your Runmus gaming headset to PS4, the first one is through the console, and the second way is via the controller.  The latter seems to be a little bit longer and quite confusing. But not to worry.

After taking the headset out of the box, make sure that the cords are well stretched, and everything about the headset is intact, then follow these steps below:

Step 1: Plug it into the bottom of your PS4 controller

As mentioned earlier, the Runmus gaming headset models usually come with the standard 3.5mm audio-out plug-in which you will need to plug into the bottom of your PS4 controller.

Also, you want to make sure that the jack is firmly fit in to prevent losing connections and issues with the sound quality losing connections.

Step 2: Navigate to the settings menu on your PS4 controller

After plugging the 3.5mm audio-out plug-in into the bottom of your PS4 controller, the next thing is to navigate to the settings menu on the PS4 controller, then go to the devices pages.

  • On the screen, select “Audio Devices.”
  • If you are lost, follow this chain:
  • Navigate to Settings > Devices > Audio Devices.

Step 3: Verify “Input and Output Device” indicates “Headset Connected to Controller”

Once you have selected “Audio Devices”, the next thing is to verify that the “Input and Output Device” indicates “Headset Connected to Controller.”  this option is presumed to be set automatically, but if not, you can simply change it manually.

At this point, you’ll now be able other related adjustments such as the Volume, Microphone Level, and Output to the Headphones.

Step 4: Adjust output to the headphones option

Once you verify  “Input and Output Device” indicates “Headset Connected to Controller.”  as seen in the previous step, you will be able to make adjustments to the Output to the Headphones option. To do this, select “all audio.”

Also, if the Headset is using a USB, the procedure is pretty much similar. Simply follow the same instruction and you will be able to connect it.

And that’s it! You are now set to enjoy your favorite games on your PS4 with your new Runmus gaming headsets.

Connecting Runmus Gaming Headset to PC

Similarly, the process involved in connecting a headset to a PC is pretty simple and less complicated.

Runmus gaming headset with the standard 3.5 mm jack will first need to be connected to the PC’s compatible 3.5mm audio output port which is usually found either on the front, left, or right of the lower part of your PC.

If it is a desktop PC, you will find the port either at the back or at the from of the CPU. From there, you will be able to use it.

RUNMUS gaming headset delivers surround sound to enhance the immersive gaming experience.

Most of its models like this K2 series is designed with high responsive audio drivers, and noise Canceling Microphone.

Using a RUNMUS gaming headset allows you to chat to your fellow players with crystal clarity by filtering most ambient noises, for most models, you can also turn off the mic by flipping the switch.


You can see that setting up your RUNMUS gaming headset with your PS4 is not a difficult process. But if there is still a connection issue between your headset and controller that is not successful, the problem will most likely be from the headsets.

You can try turning both the headset and adapter off, then turning them off, and then reconnecting to the controller to see if the issue is fixed.

After setting the headset with your PS4 and it still does not pick up any sounds either from your games or voice calls, maybe the headset is accidentally muted. So all you need to do is toggle the mute switch on the adapter.

All in all, as you have seen, the process involved in setting up a new RUNMUS Gaming Headset with PS4 is not complicated at all.
