The Official Bluetooth Headset for the PlayStation 3 was designed and optimized specifically for gaming use. This headset offers the highest-quality voice available, thanks to the High-Quality (HQ) mode, which implements various advanced voice technologies and noise-canceling
Additionally, with HQ-mode enabled, games that support or require "Voice Command" and "Voice Animation" features will work perfectly because of the headset's excellent speech recognition capabilities. Games that support this feature include Tom Clancy's EndWar, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation, and more.
Pairing the Headset to the PS3 is automatically done when you connect with a USB cable. While connected to the PS3, a simple button push will bring up an indicator on screen that tells you the connection status, battery level, speaker volume, and microphone mute status.
Compact, Comfortable Design
Thanks to its compact, ergonomic design, the headset fits comfortably on either ear for hours of use. Sony smartly put a large mute button that is easily accessible, making it especially friendly to gamers.
Bluetooth Support Lets You Use It

Charging Stand Included
A charging stand is included with the headset, providing a convenient and handsome way to display it while it is charging. In addition, the headset also works as a desktop microphone when it is plugged in and charging.
The Headset has an operating range of 30 feet.
Top Customer Reviews
Straight out of the box this looks professional and a high quality design.
It has a power on/off button, a vol+ and vol-, and a MUTE button. All are instinctively located. It can be worn on the left or right ear via a swivel clip common on most bluetooth headsets nowadays.
How do you use it you may ask?
You plug in the headset via the small usb cable to the playstation3 and it automatically syncs it with your ps3. I have heard that you need to delete any other bluetooth headsets in order to do this but that was not my experience. Wait till you see the red ring flash twice and your done.
Don't synch it using the bluetooth discovery method. If you do so it will function like a regular bluetooth headset and some features will not work correctly (such as on screen indication of your volume level, battery life gauge, the mute button, and on screen display if your mute is on or off).
The only complaint I have is that the "headset speaker" is sort of big and the rubber ring that goes around it isn't very soft and can hurt your ear after less than 30 minutes. I did find a solution to this if you just don't jam in into your ear canal that far into your ear it is very comfortable and functional. Just sort of barely seat it into your ear and it works and feels great.
The sound quality is way better than any other bluetooth headset I have used on my ps3 (I have used 4 different ones, all with great levels of success).
It also claims to have a "speakerphone"/microphone function when the headset is in the cradle. I have not had a chance to test this.
In addition the battery life on this claims to be 8 hours with 300 hours of standby which is fantastic.
Finally, it can be used as a bluetooth headset with a bluetooth compatible cellphone.
Is it worth the $50 price tag? Well that all depends on the person using it. It goes great with almost any cell phone, and works perfect with the ps3 and heck it'll work pretty well with any computer that has BT capability as well. The one little gripe I have about it though is that it starts to hurt my ear after about 1-2 hours. It's not because it's a design flaw, but more because I have such large ears. Other then those few little things, I highly recommend this BT headset. Great job Sony!
-this is the same headset that is included with socom confrontation.
-the ear hook is flexible so you can bend/flex it into your desired shape, it is also reversible so you can flip the hook to use it on the left or right ear.
-the docking station uses a USB cable to charge the headset; so not just the ps3 can charge it but any computer with a usb port can.
paired it to my blackberry curve, and it worked perfectly.
look and feels nice.
mic and sound quality is great.
for the guy that gave it 1 star... read the manual!
I give this item only three total stars because of the comfort factor. The piece that fits over the ear is nice and works but its the piece that goes into the ear that is not very comfortable. If you have the headset on for extended periods of time you will most likely have to switch ears or at least take it out ever so often.
To summarize the positives:
- integrates with the PS3 better than other sets
- may be better at helping the PS3 recognize your voice commands (haven't tested this myself yet)
- good, convenient placement for the 'mute' button
- good color coordination with your PS3 and your other PS3 peripherals
- works with any Bluetooth capable phone
- my kids think it's cool
On the negative side:
- relatively expensive
- not the best design in the world
- not very good fit for MY ear (most headsets do not fit well in my ear)
Overall, the negatives are not such a big deal. It gets 4 stars because, if price was not an issue, this would be, without a doubt, the first headset I would pick to use with my PS3.
