4.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent versatile headphones, poor battery life September 27, 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
These are really incredibly nice headphones. They have a feeling of quality that reflects their price.

I take off part of a start however for two things:

1) It's not possible to charge the headphones out of the box as a mini-USB cable is required and none is included. Grated, these are sold primarily as a PS3 peripheral and so you should be able to use the same cables you charge the regular controllers with, but as the headphones are advertised as working with Windows and Vita platforms, it is very disappointing to find that, for the price, they can't actually include the cable you need to charge them up and use them.

2) Documentation is terrible. It's a typical folded up sheet of cheap paper with tiny type that gives only a vague description of how all the controls work. Yes, this is on par for other game console accessories, but these headphones have so many controls and so many usage scenarios, that a little more in-box description would actually be useful here.

Ok, with those minor things out of the way, let's talk about what's great about these things.

Wireless. It's not standard Bluetooth unfortunately but it works well and is bi-directional. The headset DOES include a mic (something not obvious from the photos since it's built into one of the ear cups and there is no "boom" etc.

Can be used wired as well. A 3.5mm standard mini four-conductor cable (straight plug on one end, right angle on the other) is included which will plug into an iPhone or similar device and into a similar jack on the headphones. The headphones will work passively without power in this mode (in case the batteries are flat), but power is required to get the rest of the features to work (volume control, impact etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for any PS3 owner October 7, 2012
By Mike D
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start off by saying if you're planning on buying these to listen to music with or not use with a PlayStation 3. Then you might want to reconsider your purchase. However, if you bought these to have the best experience with your PS3, then by all means add to your cart and buy. I'll break down what each button/slider does and my personal experience with this headset. And before anyone goes off, i'm not a Sony rep or anything. Just a fan of PlayStation. (not a fanboy)

*Left Earcup*

Volume: On the backside there's a volume slider. These things can get pretty loud. When used with the PS3, and the proper settings applied, all the sound comes straight through to the headphones. Perfect for late night gaming with other people in the house, or simply gaming in silence to block out all other sound.

Mic Mute: Located on the back lower end. This is self explanatory. Toggle's your mic on/off. When the mic is toggled off, the LED on the front end turns purple. Nice little indication, even if you can't see the LED.

On/Off: Located just opposite of the Mic Mute. Simple slider to turn the headphones On/Off. I recommend having your PS3 on first. Also gives a reaffirming beep when there on, and when they connect.

Voice Chat/Game Sound: Located on the front of this earcup, oppsite the Volume slider. Sliding it down fades In-Game voice chat to the dominant sound. Sliding it up makes the game volume dominant. Very useful when trying to coordinate attacks in BF3 or Ghost Recon: FS.

*Right Earcup*

BassImpact (BI): At first you may think, "That's just a gimmick. Vibrating headset? Pssh!" But let me clarify. They don't vibrate as the Dualshock 3, they Pulse. Hence the name.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great for a month or two!!! July 9, 2013
By Abraham
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I do buy Sony products frequently. I have a PS3, a Ps Vita and tons and tons of games. Generally you could say I'm a fan. I bought these to use at night and not waking up my family while playing my games. For all the details and features about the product go read the 5-star reviews. What I want to tell you my friend is that the build quality (design?) is terrible.

I have uploaded some images that you can find in the customer pictures section; they show the plastic joint between the earcups and the metal band will break after few months of use thus making them unusable. In the pics I uploaded you can see how I use to manipulate the unit, like any other headset, but this will put too much pressure to this joint. They will work just as described for a month or two, they wont last, it's a flawled design. Specially if someone besides you is going to use it.

The reason for my 1-star rating is because I expected to use this headset for a much longer period of time. It's not worth your money. Let's hope the next iteration (maybe with the PS4?) will live to the quality of older products.

Please read as many reviews as you can, there's another person describing this same problem, I wish I had seen it before.
