PlayStation 4 consoles require an officially licensed PlayStation 4 controller to authenticate Cronus Zen to a PS4. This is called the 'Auth Controller' and can also be used as the primary gaming controller.
Important Note: Only a wired SONY DUALSHOCK 4 model CUH-ZCT2 (DS4v2) can support headset audio and the built-in DS4 speaker.
Some third-party licensed models with their own custom wireless adapter like the Astro C40 do support wireless Auth and headset without a DS4v2 auth controller. See below for more details.

Many licensed third-party PS4 controllers support Authentication over USB and Bluetooth, and some wireless controllers such as the Astro C40 also support headset. However, if you ever have a PS4 controller that doesn't support Auth or Headset, simply connect an Auth Controller to A1 USB and game with your preferred controller connected to A2 USB.
TBC = To Be Confirmed (Let us know if you have tested this as working or not)
USB = Wired Controller or wireless controller with USB Cable BLUETOOTH = Connects to Cronus Zen via Bluetooth WIRELESS = Custom wireless adapter that comes with the controller
*Minimum Firmware Requirement for Nacon Revolution Pro v3 is 2.0.8
PS4 controllers do not support Headsets over Bluetooth, however you can connect your headset directly to a Pass-Through Auth Controller (A1 USB port). Works fine when connected by USB or supported Wireless Adapter like the Astro C40 or Nacon.

How to Unpair PS4 Controllers

​
🚫
It is essential that your PS4 Controller is completely unpaired from your PS4 console before setting up with Cronus Zen, otherwise the controller will regularly disconnect. You will need a PlayStation 4 Console for this procedure.
This is also useful if you had previously paired your controller to Zen's Bluetooth, but now wish to use a USB cable.
  1. 1.
    Turn on the PlayStation 4 using its power button (do not power on with the controller)
  2. 2.
    Connect your PS4 controller directly to the PS4 console using a micro-USB cable and press the PS Button
    ​
  3. 3.
    After a few seconds the light bar on the PlayStation 4 controller will change to solid BLUE, indicating pairing to the console is complete, and the controller is now unpaired from everything else
