I own a PlayStation Gold and Platinum headset. A few days ago I tried charging my Headsets along with my Dualshock 3 controllers on my PS5 while in rest mode and the devices never took the charge. Has anyone else noticed this? Will Sony ever address/patch this issue? It's such a little, big problem ya know? The fact that the console isn't charging Sony branded headsets is asinine!

My platinum headset would charge in rest mode with the PS4, but I have noticed the same issue the OP has brought up. PS5 will charge the controllers but not the headset.

And the thing is that it was charging my equipment in restmode before the last update.

Doesn't do it on PS5, didn't do it on PS4 either. Both systems have to be on to charge headsets.
No my PS4 charged all my devices during rest mode, the trick is that you have plug in all your stuff before setting the console to rest.

It's so weird... While in rest mode it'll charge my phone via micro usb, but it will not charge my headsets that also use micro usb! I guess this is something Sony will have to address via a patch, it shouldn't be a problem to begin with honestly.

Micro USB on the PS5? I thought that was data only.

There's still plenty of devices that use Micro for charging. Sony is giving me the option to have it repaired, but I'm not sure at the moment because I believe they will just replace the console instead of actually diagnosing what's causing the issue.

I think I'm better off waiting for a patch.

FWIW I’m using the USB on the front. Haven’t tried the ones on the back but don’t see them working.

That's standard practice in consumer electronics repair, has been for decades. Why would you prefer to have a malfunctioning console over one that is physically identical but not the same when the data can be transferred?

Because I believe this is a software issue and I'm not the only one who this has happened to. I'll wait for Sony to drop a patch.
