Awesome headset for PS3 or PC


Works for PS3 or PC ; Wireless - can go grab a drink with headphones still on ; Battery charge lasts quite a while, and can wear while plugged in and charging

Wait for a sale

Great Headset


Over all I really love this head set. I got it when it was on sale for a good, 50 bucks and honestly had I know it was of this qualty, id more than likely have payed the full 100 bucks. The only other things i have to say is: A: The Switcher between...

1.The comfort of this headset is unmatched for me, even compared to say Bose Headphones (being the bar I have set comfort wise for all headphones) don't compare ; 2.The sound quality is more than I would expect from a headset and the mic is retractable...

There are only 3 issues I have with the headset, 2 are extraordinarily minor and 1 is kinda a bigger issue ; 1. The Headset just looks odd, like it went for a futuristic sleek look and just ended up making the person look like they have princess Leia's...

Awesome while they lasted


beside it going bad i really liked the headset i am just a little disappointed at the fact that you spend this much money on a headset for it to not last more than a year. check the internet for this problem i am not the only one

these things where awesome while they lasted but i will get to that later. i love the fact on how comfortable these where. the surround was sweet as well you can here people coming behind you which is helpful in FPS's

i have gone through 2 pairs of these headsets. i originally got them then 6 months later they stopped working didnt turn on didnt charge nothing so i called sony they sent me a new pair. worked great for a year then when dead again. same thing happened...

I was on the fence about this for a while. I was worried about the lack of Surround and the rather low price. I do not regret it for a second. I bought these elsewhere but I wanted to share my thoughts and hope it may help whomever may be in the same...

Very good sound. I was very surprised at the sound quality, even for it only being stereo sound. It sounds like surround. Yes, I do have the virtual surround off. I only want to play with these on ; Very comfortable. Can play for hours with little to...

Not really any. I wish the battery would last all day. I get between 4- 6 hrs of battery life

Overpriced junk


Quite simply NOT worth the ridiculous $99 price tag (+$15 for the charging cable.) Skip these.

They're comfy

Battery life is absolutely HORRID. 2 Hours average just watching video. Nevermind trying to use the microphone (which is situated so far from your face you practically have to shout to be heard.) ; Also, note - NO CHARGING cable is included in the box,...

Good cheap headset


I was torn between this or a Turtle Beach, I'm very glad I went with this headset! I can go about 20 feet away from the USB receiver and still stay connected. (Works through walls!)

I use these for PC gaming, and I've had very little problems with them ; Very cheap for it's quality. Came with a free copy of Doom for PS3 which I sold to best buy for $50 store credit. So the headset pretty much only cost $30. A steal ; Very...

Sometimes, like others are saying, it just loses connection for like 5 seconds and then connects back again like nothing happened ; Did not come with a USB charging cable, but you can buy one for like 5 ; The whole top piece and sides are enormous....

I've owned this for 10 months now, got it for christmas, the mic has been broken off taped it back on, headset partially snapped. Will fall of my head if i move to quick. When my head moves at all it creeks. Very dissapointed in sony, will not purchase...

Full volume control, Long range

Bulky, Ugly, Wireless so it has to charge without much warning, creeks, poor build quality

This is definitely not worth the price.

Separate adjustments for main volume and game or mic balance. Loud. Very comfortable to wear

There is no adjustment for excessive amounts of bass noise. There is a constant static sound in the background. The mic feeds into the headset, even when the mic is "muted." The virtual surround sound is useless and makes no audible difference. The...

Usb Dongle Broke


Sounds great and works as advertised

Usb dongle broke after two months of use. The only way to get it replaced is to send the whole thing in for repairs
