Stealth 700 for PS4/PS4 Pro - PS4 Feature Set (Original, Slim, Pro)

The PS4 Slim console released in September 2016 does not include the Digital Optical Output that was present on the original PS4 (2013). This change was only implemented in the slimmer PS4 that's replacing the original PS4. The 4K-capable PS4 Pro Console still has a Digital Optical Output.

The absence of the Digital Optical Output on the new slimmer PS4 console means that for the Stealth 700 for PS4/PS4 Pro, you will NOT need to use the included Digital Optical Cable (as you would for the PS4 or PS4 Pro consoles).

When the Optical cable isn't plugged in (PS4 Slim):

  • Game Volume Control becomes the Master Volume Control (adjusts both game and chat volume).
  • Chat Volume Control becomes a variable Mic Monitor Volume Control (adjusts the volume you can hear your own voice).

PS4 Slim Alternative Setup:

If your television or receiver has an Optical Digital (S/PDIF) Output and supports Dolby Digital, you can connect the optical cable from the transmitter to your TV/Receiver for game audio. An optical output is often labeled 'S/PDIF', 'Digital Out', or 'Optical'. You may need to go into your TV's Sound Settings to enable the optical output and/or select 'Dolby Digital' if such an option is available.

How To Tell if Your TV Has an Optical Output:

First, we recommend consulting the TV/receiver manual for a list of features and settings configurations.

Optical outputs are illuminated by a red light and typically covered by a rubber 'flap'. The image below shows an uncovered optical output.

If your TV is placed farther away from the PS4, you may need a longer mini Toslink optical cable. More information here.
