Meh i've always felt that turtle beach are the Monster Beats of gaming headsets , overall . They are decent enough , but not nearly worth their price tags (that is for the high end ones before the upcoming xb1 one) .

And it's a worthless article by someone who got no clue anyway . The Pulse elite is nice (unless you got those mentioned above cracking issues , never had so far) but it's not bluetooth . It's a wireless dongle that can also be used with other devices .

Also it does have something special and fancy unlike claimed by the article . Its virtual surround and bass effects are pretty good compared to the competition . IF you care for virtual surround of course to begin with . But at least it's not a jarring and weird simulated effect .

Finally you can always get the Pulse Elite in good deals if careful enough . It's always discounted heavily around black friday , and back when it launched Sony had almost a 50% discount on it for a long while . Just avoid idiotic stuff like the GTA V version , uber expensive with barely a GTA themed design and nothing new

If you look around you can usually find last season's top of the line Turtle Beach refurbs for like 80 bucks. I'd say they're totally worth it at that price. I love mine.

the downside for the official ps3 headsets is if u lose the ubd dongle sony does not sell replacements, and u have to basically buy a new headset, thats why when i could not find my usb dongle i decided to buy TB px5 but they had so much interferancem ended with the astros A50 and love them worth the price

Pulse Elite was the Most uncomfortable headset I ever wore. Discomfort equals distraction and therefore a less fun gaming experience. Binned mine.

Tremendous sound and comfort with Sony Pulse Elite.

I usually prefer clean sounding tin cans which is why I use my Audio Technica M50's for DAB/CD's, but with music that has a lot of bass in them, my Pulse Elite is tops!, it even beats a lot of other heavy bass sounding aftermarket open-air/closed headphones out there.

I simply believe some people out there are going to try and over-stretch the headband and headband holder too much thus breaking the entire headphones. It's either that or they have overly-large heads.

Another headphone I am absolutely anticipating is the release of Audio Technica ATH AG1 - closed earpiece ( ) . Tried it out at EB EXPO 2013 and must say they are " the MOST COMFORTABLE and BEST TRUE SOUNDING earphones. " Yes they will be a bit pricey - around AU$300 but are worth every cent.

Is there any Bose headset for the PS3/PS4? I wonder how nice that would be...
