2.0 out of 5 stars PS3 Komodo headset works better than expected!, November 3, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PS3 Komodo Bluetooth Wireless Headset (Accessory)
I was hesitant to purchase the PS3 Komodo headset since I didn't see any reviews for it at all. I went to several sites only to discover no reviews. I really needed a PS3 headset but had insufficient funds to purchase the official PS3 headset - retail price is $50. I was looking for something less than $20 but with decent quality. I found the PS3 Komodo headset for $12.80 sold by G-Dreamer and highly recommend purchasing from G-Dreamer.

I got PS3 Komodo headset for $12.80 plus standard 3-5 day shipping. I got it fast and in mint condition. I like the design but the gloss makes it look like a toy in my eyes. It's certainly no toy as I charged it for one hour to test the sound quality and left quite impressed. It sync with the PS3 immediately and sound is crystal clear with no crackling noise. For less than $20 with decent sound quality, you can't go wrong.

In conclusion, the PS3 Komodo headset is affordable, features crystal clear sound, soft to the ear and comfortable. I tested my PS3 Komodo headset using Uncharted 2: Among Thieves -Game of The Year edition- online multi-player mode. My friends heard me crystal clear and was even surprised by the sound quality considering I payed less than $20 for it. I highly recommend the PS3 Komodo headset to anyone new to bluetooth and/or anyone looking to save money. Order it from G-Dreamer since he offers the lowest price and is a fast shipper. I am more than satisfied with this product and some of the profit goes to the Kids in Need foundation - they provide FREE school supplies to children in need.

*******************UPDATE**********************

After almost a year of owning this headset, I must give you my updated review on how it holds up to the test of time. This is a really uncomfortable headset and it will keep disconnected itself when you think it's turned on. It hangs from the ear instead of firmly being placed on the ear and it's just not a good headset. Still works but it fails at what it's suppose to do in the first place. If you must buy this headset then expect your money to be wasted considering it's not durable and even though it's not broken, it sure as hell might as well be. Save your money and get the Turtle Beach PX21 headset for universal gaming. Now that is definitely a true gaming headset. This headset right here is a toy and nothing else. Have fun!

This headset is horrible

I was new to the headset world and wanted a quick cheap way to chat with my buddies but after buying that "toy" headset, I'm never doing it again. Since then I've upgraded to the Turtle Beach PX22 stereo gaming headsets (superior to the PX21). If you want the most bang for your buck then save up for the PX22 which is $80 and don't ever try looking for cheap headsets again. They'll just disappoint you like this poor excuse for craftsmanship.
