Can the mic be muted while in chat & in game?
Can chat and game volume be separately controlled?
I should've been more specific. When I was talking about the mic that was included in the box, I meant the PS4 mic that is included with the PS4, NOT the PX4. The mic included with the PX4 sounds great, and I don't think there would be a need to replace it at all unless you somehow manage to break it.
I haven't tried bluetooth whatsoever. I don't talk on the phone much, so that is a feature I can't comment on and will likely never use.
I would like to say that chat can be muted in both, however, if you pick up an older version of the headset, there is a good chance you'll simply get a cord to connect to the controller with no inline controls. I thought this was standard, but my friend picked up the same headset at Best Buy (got mine at GameStop) and it has inline controls on the cord that allows you to mute the microphone and adjust chat volume. Without that, the only way I've found to mute the mic is to simply unplug the cord from the controller. Chat volume can be set through the PS4. Since it's dynamic and chat gets louder when the game audio does, having that control on the cord is more of a convenience than anything.
On a side note, be sure wherever you buy has a decent return policy on headphones. I got lucky when I was able to return my Tritton's and get the PX4's. So word of caution: don't buy headsets (or anything) from GameStop.
