I'm upgrading this review to 5/5 stars, because this headset it still alive and kicking after 6 years. It still works great, and I use it regularly when taking calls in my home. The headset has outlasted every one of my smartphones. It still holds a charge pretty well and still sounds great. If it ever breaks, I would probably buy another one.
[2017 Update #2]
Well, it finally "died." But only because I accidentally put it through the wash and dryer. It still technically works and pairs with my phone, but the earpiece is physically broken off and no sound comes out. RIP PS3 Headset.
I purchased this mainly for use with my T-Mobile HTC G2 Android phone. I have a PS3, but I don't play online often, so it's mainly for phone calls.
It connects quickly and flawlessly to my phone, and the sound quality is absolutely amazing in the earpiece. As good, if not better, than the sound I get from my handset. The earpiece is comfortable and light, and I often forget that I'm even wearing it.
The earpiece comes with a USB cable that allows instant pairing (and charging) with your PS3. No more fussing with it to disconnect it from your phone and force it to connect to the PS3. It just does it, no problem. There's also a cradle charger for it, but I haven't had much use for that yet.
Battery life is great so far. I accidentally left it on in my car overnight, and it was still blinking the next morning.
The major drawback of this headset is that people on the other end of the phone have a hard time hearing and understanding me. Unless I'm in a perfectly quiet and enclosed area, I often have to speak loudly and repeat myself. They say I sound much more tinny than usual. I asked my wife to call me while using it so I could hear what they were hearing, but I didn't really notice any major issues.
I'm also not too thrilled with the button configuration, although I guess that's because it's primarily a gaming headset. The large main button on the side of the headset mutes the mic instead of accepting/ending calls. This makes sense when you're gaming, but when I first started using it with my phone, it was counter-intuitive. The phone button is smaller and on top, near the volume buttons. It didn't take too long to adjust to this change.
I'd say this is probably the best Bluetooth headset you can get right now for the money. The cons I listed don't bother me too much, but I figured I should let possible customers know about them. I'm happy with the purchase so far.
BONUS: This headset comes with a cute little stand you can set it in while it charges. That's actually pretty awesome.
My voice also doesn't go out clearly. Pretty much everyone tells me that I'm always cutting out and sometimes I'm not sure my message got out at all. I self tested in the PS3 settings and noticed that short sayings wouldn't pick up, even when I brought up my voice. So if I just say one or two words it's likely that it doesn't get transmitted at all.
The one good thing about it is that it is super easy to set up. I simply plugged in the USB to pair it to the system and it was good to go. Not that pairing a USB device is in any way difficult but this was still nice.
It does have to be connected to the system to charge which isn't a major problem but was again disappointing. Sony's Headset can be charged away from the system which is awesome.
