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...

Great price per performance headset.

 

I've had it for almost 3 years now. Very good headset for the money, really good sound quality. Physically adjustable mic. Comfortable. Can be used with both PS3 , PC and even Mac i believe. Great gift for you kid(s) too.

Is made out of plastic, so it can be creaky but only when taking it on and off. I think I damaged my mic so it has a little bit of fuzzy feedback. And finding the power button for the first time was tricky lol because it's not really a button.

Just Okay

 

Very Comfy headphones, mic is crisp and clear. Wireless works decent enough. Good customer service through Playstation.

Worked for about two and a half months flawlessly. Then, one day I plug it in and it will no longer take a charge. Called up playstation, sent it in, two weeks later received a brand new pair. Plugged it in, SAME exact problem except this pair didn't...

Great Bang for your Buck

 

I have been playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist "SvM" Online and it is fantastic with this headset. The difference from standard stereo and 7.1 surround is amazing and really almost gives you the upper hand when sniffing out enemies. Hearing their...

• Great 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound • One button to switch between stereo to surround • Smooth sliding mic for when you need it • Easy acces volume and 'voice to game ratio' volume slider • Lightweight and not clunky or cumbersome • Plug n' Play style...

• When out of range, headset audio doesn't get fuzzy and fade out, it stops altogether. May be inconvenient to some. • No major (if ANY) problems with this headset yet!

Alright

 

The big problem with this mic is how it will stop working, and it does it fairly often. Often enough to drive a person insane.

Sounds good, the mic is very clear and quite comfortable to wear for extended time.

Likes to cut out and stop working for severall seconds at a time. Battery dies quite fast.

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...
