Official PlayStation 3 Bluetooth Headset

It's the only headset that offers HQ (high quality) mode right now. It really does sound great, very clear, no static. Just how a headset should be. It feels comfortable in your ear, but I haven't used it for long gaming sessions yet, so I can't comment on long term use right now.

To pair you just plug the headset in via usb cable (don't plug in the cradle yet!), to the PS3 and your done.

Key Features:

  • High-Quality (HQ) mode that delivers clear and wideband online voice chat and supports ‘voice command’ for select games.
  • Dual-microphone design for high-quality noise cancellation with supported games on the PS3™ system.

  • Automatic pairing with the PS3™ system via a USB cable.
  • Exclusive game indicator screen on the PS3™ system displays connection status, battery charge level, speaker volume level and microphone muting status.
  • Easily accessible mic muting button.

I really do like this headset as it has great sound quality and it also has a mute button. I really enjoy the fact that if I need to stop talking online for a minute because I need to speak to my wife I can just press the mute button on the side and it is muted.

It also does a pretty good job of eliminating the feedback loop. I have a friend who is using a cheapy bluetooth headset and you can tell the shielding on it isn't that great. Every time I talk to him or someone else talks in-game it echos through his headset. It is like the mic doesn't isolate the sound from the ear piece very well. While playing with 4 other friends who all own this headset I do not run into this issue.

The biggest issue this headset has is that it takes a while to get it in a comfortable spot so that it can be worn for hours on end without your ear starting to hurt. I bought it when it came in the SOCOM bundle.

I found that this headset worked as advertised. It did everything pretty well, though you have to pair it directly with the USB cable (not using the base) in order to get all the functionality out of it. The documentation didn't say that you'd be missing out on screen status updates about the headset if you paired it via Bluetooth.

The sound quality is excellent. I heard some other people with this headset talking, and it sounded great. I wish everyone used a headset of this sound quality.

As to comfort, that's where this headset really falls down. I cannot get it into my ear comfortably, no matter how I try.

Plus it's a bit expensive.

It's a must have for PS3 owners who chat often. The cradle is a very handy too.

One thing that did bug me about the headset cradle is the glowing red circle when charging. I wouldn't be so bad but I keep it just inches below my screen so I just turn it sideways so I don't have to look at it.
