When the PS4 controller is connected via the USB cable to the PC, it can be used as an audio device if I plug my headphones into the controller.

Is it somehow possible to use them as an audio device, when I connect the controller via Bluetooth? They can output the sound transmitted via Bluetooth when they're used on a PS4, I would guess that it is somehow possible.

If not via plain Bluetooth, might it work with the USB adapter made by Sony?

Important: It is not meant for remote play. I want to play PC games with it.

Thank you! :)

According to anecdotal evidence by a reddit user and an Amazon review of the adapter, it only works with the official Sony adapter.

There are other Amazon reviews mentioning the default Windows sound changing when it is plugged in; I would take this to be further evidence the adapter works.

    Thank you for your fast reply! I hoped that it might be possible without the adaptor, as it is absolutely overpriced in my oppinion.

  • Yeah it seems like quite a bit for a USB bluetooth dongle. I'm not seeing much evidence to the contrary unfortunately; nor does it sound like the adapter experience is better in a lot of ways. Lots of complaining about issues introduced when using it instead of normal Bluetooth or USB in this thread: reddit.com/r/pcgaming/comments/7o38t2/… Commented Feb 25, 2020 at 21:59
