I really want these, they look so badass.
Iroquois_Pliskin  +   1078d ago
daaaaamn i want it now!!!! way cheaper than Beats
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1078d ago
Wait, is this an official accessory? Because it completelly gone over my head, when did they announced it?

Anyway, not just it's way cheaper than most headsets in that league, it also has the features and the look to back it up. Now I just need to read some reviews to get what the sound quality and confort are. If good it looks like I'm going to get myself a new headset!
Dmarc  +   1078d ago
Im never ever buying sony headphones again
I think I bought 3 in one year because they kept breaking
3 different types all same problems
1st 1 of the speakers stopped working
2nd first the stereo went away it was all mono then 1 of the speakers stopped working
3rd set a wire shortage i had to fix it with tape then guess what happened next ... a speaker stopped working lol
okay so I bought a 4th pair back in october they still work great but they were the cheapest lol
They were Studio Noise cancelling and Studio Monitor headphones
the ones I have now are just noise cancelling

OT
$60 for a Headset ?
Thats a little too much for me
a great price for headphones tho
I wonder how they sound
I only use my mic wen im playing with friends anyway
I dont like having headphones on wheh im gaming
@ Nathan it wasnt bad luck like a idiot I bought them out of store and didnt read consumer review online
and lots of people had the same issues
they werent cheap headphones either I got them because alot of producers use them

Wow you have terrible luck....
gypsygib  +   1078d ago
@Dmarc:

I'm not doubting you at all but I've had a set of Sony headphones for 7 years and I treated them like absolute shit; they still work perfectly.
Dmarc  +   1078d ago
yea my dad had his sony headphones for years too
but i guess its the studio monitor and noise cancelling headphones that are defective
but those are the only headphones i use because they are perfect for music
and they arent cheap
the ones i bought were $80 at the time
the headphones i have now only costed 30
and they are lasting longer
its weird lol

lmao @ the disagrees

I've had my noise cancelling Sony's for a little over a year now.

They are still as amazing as the day I bought them. ;) I mow the lawn with them on, so I can't hear anything...including the lawnmower.
OpenGL  +   1078d ago
Honestly at $65 you would probably get better audio quality from Sony's MDR-V6 studio head phones.
RedSky  +   1078d ago
Consumer headphones especially heavily marketed ones like these are pretty much designed to fall apart within a year with normal use. Rather than investing in a serious pair, everyone seems to just go out and buy the same or similar without having learnt their lesson.

This isn't even getting into the fact that wireless headphones tend to sound anything between mediocre to awful for the price and the fact that having 7.1/5.1/any of that other nonsense in a headphone is a consumer gimmick.
I_find_it_funny  +   1078d ago
they look so sexy, gotta get it, perfect for me as I have no audio setup just TV
potedude  +   1078d ago
@DMARC
3 in one year? They should still be under warranty. Why buy a new pair when they can be replaced under warranty?

Unless...
zeeshan  +   1077d ago
Preordered!
ThanatosDMC  +   1077d ago
^ yeah, I was thinking about warranty too. What a liar.
alien626  +   1077d ago
Pre-Order this already great price and they are official Sony product always been looking for something like this cant wait for this to come out and free shipping for PRIME members ;D

@Dmarc sucks for u but i have like 3 or 4 sony headphones and they all work like a charm i think the only one that broke was the first socom headset but idk if its sony product if it is well then i misstread it does headphones and reason they dont work no more
BulletToothtony  +   1077d ago
I don't see how $65 is insane.

They're gonna have more features being the official headset plus if you want a real decent 7.1 sound you'll be looking around $700+ i guess some people don't know much when it comes to technology.
Bull5hifT  +   1077d ago
My Beats By Dre Studios Sound incredible ad the noise canceling technology gets me really immersed, especially with Apple Lossless or those other Audio Files that Dont get Muddy from the tranSfer.... Daft Punk at 46mb each song is Epic, you need to try it

Knushwood Butt  +   1078d ago
Yeah, shame I got a set of 7.1 wireless headphones earlier this year. They are sweet, but the inclusion of this headset is what I really want.

I normally play with headphones, and having a separate headset is a pain as I have to play with the headphones 'DJ' style only over one ear.
duplissi  +   1078d ago
defeats the purpose... i would just give up using the mic or headphones.... would piss me off too much.
Knushwood Butt  +   1077d ago
Well, I only use the headset when playing Killzone 3 so I can live with it.

Still, these do look nice.

Just got the PS3 headset, sort of regretting it now
firemassacre  +   1078d ago
i live in an apartment and would love these so my neighbors dont go all crazy on me.

@alpha why? whats wrong with them, i would like to know to perhaps save money for other ones. advice would be appretiated.
-Alpha  +   1078d ago
Well I meant that I could have saved the money for this headset instead.

Though, if you must know, the PS3 Headset 2.0 has a cheap earpiece, but other then that it's great.

zeeshan  +   1078d ago
Yes, I am sort of regretting it too. I'd rather get this than only the BT headset because this headset will not just work as a communication (with team members) device but I'd be able to listen to the game music, sound effects without disturbing the wife :D

Software_Lover  +   1078d ago
I cant play with headphones on. You just become so distant from your enviornment and cant react when/if you need to.

If you live in an apartment, someone is banging on your door yelling FIRE FIRE................... you're f**ked, lol
Crazyglues  +   1078d ago
Yeah that's true but sound has never sound so good.. when it's right on your ear it's like your right there on the battlefield, can hear people sneaking up behind you...

it's a tough call... LoL (hear stuff really well in the real world or hear stuff really well in the game)
-and at $65 bucks with free shipping that's a no-brainier

Proper 7.1 (I.E. Pioneer VSX 1020 k, Polk speakers and 12" sub.) provides far superior sound, than any headset. That said, I think surround sound is a crucial component for proper immersion, I've literally ducked incoming rounds. So if a 5.1/7.1 headset is your only option, go for it, TV speakers just don't cut it.

@HardCover, I think he means that it's a cheap price for something that's actually very good
NeoTribe  +   1077d ago
If u dont have a sound system of any kind you would not regret this purchase.
Fire1792  +   1077d ago
Yep! I have a 22" HDTV you can imagine the sound kinda sucks on it too :P. So this is a steal on my end :D
nikrel  +   1078d ago
Only 7hours, that kinda sucks. Wonder if it drops even more if you are using the headset to chat while playing online.
Fire1792  +   1077d ago
I'm pretty sure the mic will be on automatically...and they count the 7 hours in that...

NoOoB101  +   1078d ago
It says when u use them, there will be an onscreen notice of battery life and stuff so it needs an update for ur ps3 to have this onscreen
Ricardoportillo04  +   1077d ago
i already get that with my old ps3 bluetooth
navysealrb  +   1077d ago
the update will probably be released on or before the headsets come out and probably since it is not bluetooth but uses a USB dongle to transmit, the PS3 needs the instructions on how to communicate with this new headset.

Truth  +   1078d ago
I just bought a really nice headset a few months ago, but the surround sound is weirdly off. Sometimes it sounds like a guy is running behind me, but he's actually like 30 feet off to my left. So, perhaps I'll try these for the 7.1 and see if that makes a difference.
Eoure  +   1078d ago
Wireless, 7.1 Sourround Sound, PC/Mac Compatible, built in battery. All of this for only $65? You can't get anything like this for less than $100...

Seriously, what's the catch??
FAGOL  +   1078d ago
It's actual RRP is $99. Amazon may just be testing how much demand there is for this product by having a discounted pre order price for a short period.
cruncher_20  +   1078d ago
I just paid 200$ for my ear force PX5... There are amazing but now I'm wondering if I could have buy these one instead... 65$... It's a fantastic deal or like you say, there's a catch ?
Jeffail  +   1078d ago
Can we get these in England? If so then I might just buy a pair.
FAGOL  +   1078d ago
It hasn't been announced by any UK retailers yet but i'm sure it will soon. Most likely to release near the time it releases for the US.
FAGOL  +   1078d ago
I want to see a review. I've got Tritton AXPros. If these are better i'll get them and sell the pros.
Checkmate  +   1078d ago
possibly a stupid question, but if i got two of them would a friend and i use them at the same time while playing a game or watching a movie?
LordZ  +   1078d ago
You were right.... It is a stupid question. What you're asking defies the purpose of the headset.
UltimateIdiot911  +   1077d ago
Perhaps it's him and a roommate who do not want to disturb the third or fourth roommate. Maybe they want to be courtesy to others. Strange right?

It's a very valid question and not stupid at all.

OT: I wish I could answer that and I actually would like to know the answer as well.

thats an interesting question.

There are some options for that which include a transmitter

Because TV speakers aren't that great, and not everyone has enough $$ for a home theater system if they're paying for rent, insurance, living fees, etc ;)

AX 720's are dolby digital surrond and not this stereo surround thats the reason AX 720 's cost the double than this.With this Ps3 Headsets you get half of the sound quality of the AX 720's or of the A40s.

These require FW 3.7X to work - just from sony's website.
They are lacking a test to prove they are better then the ones on the market now, and most of the time you just mute all the kids on PSN with junk headphones in the first place..
