Kotaku Review: PS3 Wireless Headset Kills Two Birds With a Half-Ounce Stone

At E3, I lost my phone's Jawbone headset. For multiplayer on my PS3, I've used a bulky, cheap, wired set that looks like I stole it from Mike Ditka. In either case, anything would be an improvement.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yup, Sony makes good hardware. We know this :)

Bought the headset and returned it. Was hoping it would fix the problem this new one plus the old one have... mic level is stuck at 3 in the settings!!! You can't change it. I live in a tiny place so my g/f or dog walking or talking can be heard by other people. Problem would be fixed if I could set the level from 3 to 2 but apparently in a past firmware Sony decided to lock it at 3. So retarded.

If you have the old headset the upgrade in my opinion is not worth spending another $50. If this is your first headset then it's a good choice. I really like how small and light it was but I found it uncomfortable to wear for long periods. Plus my friend got it as well and compared to his old Jabra that came with Warhawk him talking now is quieter.

But I currently have a great working headset, that actually goes from 1-5 in the volume control setting. Mines the Platronics v521

They liked it, so save the hits for a better site.

I like how Kotaku will get caught in lies about the PS3 and its games and then give rave reviews about oddball stuff, or in this case an accessory. I think they do it because they can try and cover up their general dislike of the PS3 and its games by saying "oh wait look we did a good review of this". Conspiracy Theorists will enjoy the fact that they do it is because as long as they are bashing the console and its games no one will be buying the accessories they review as top notch.

Then again, my entire statement could be BS :)

Glad you caught on to that. You have to realize that your a conspiracy theorist talking about conspiracy theorists. "They said something bad about my PS3...WAAAAAH....WAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAH!"

I dont care about voice chat but won't any headset work on PS3?

PHOSADRA2920d ago

Yes..Most headsets will work

But AFAIK only the Sony ones support the HQ audio mode?

I just upgraded to this one a few weeks ago and I really like the design. It functions as it is suppose to. I gave my old one to a friend that just bought a PS3 so we could talk during Killzone 3 ownage.
