Do you hear that sound? It’s the sound of the enemy approaching your bunker. Only you’ve heard them way before they’ve even seen you and now your commandos are ready to unload. What’s your advantage? It’s simple – the official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset – the latest addition to the PlayStation 3 accessories family.

Official Wireless Stereo Headset for PS3Official Wireless Stereo Headset for PS3

The official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset will be available for $99.99 (MSRP) at retailers nationwide this September. Many more of your favorite franchises, such as Killzone and Gran Turismo, were also designed for surround sound audio. Featuring 7.1 virtual surround sound, the Wireless Stereo Headset lets you hear all the minor in-game audio clues clearly, whether you are in a firefight in a first-person shooter game or racing for the checkered flag.

Designed with comfort in mind for hours of gameplay, it’s the perfect addition to your PlayStation experience. Connecting the Wireless Stereo Headset with PS3 is made easy with the included USB Wireless Adapter. Precise volume controls and accessible microphone mute make it so you never have to interrupt gameplay to fumble for buttons. You can easily stay informed about battery status, sound controls, etc. with on-screen headset status updates. On top of that, the Wireless Stereo Headset also offers the highest quality voice chat for crystal clear online conversations. The mic is retractable so you can put it away if you just want to listen to music or play a single player game.

We’re very excited to be able to offer you yet another new way to get immersed in the game. Be sure to keep checking the Blog for more information soon.

Batteries???

Whats up with that? Do you have to use AA batteries on this? It should have rechargable ion battery in the device, otherwise its not worth it. I’d rather have this device cost $150, and you charge it via USB port…

Care to comment?

meh, the sound on those “7.1″ surround isn’t that great, i’m sure sony’s will be somewhat better, but for $100 i want to use the headphones everywhere. you guys should bye a $80 pair of senheiser, or $100 bose, and use your blutooth for audio output only same thing gaming……and so much more otherwise

How about adding them as a bundle to the purchase of the console.

They come out in September, eh? Wonder if the PS Store will be up by then??????????????

+ Venge on May 28th, 2011 at 2:25 pm said:

I don’t like that the mic doesn’t look flexible. And I still have my doubts about how well the stereo headphones emulate 7.1. Nevertheless, it seems to be a decent pair of entry-level headphones for those who may not already have a pair.

I have complainer room mates, and this would be perfect for me. I could listen to my games in high quality… this is great. I almost bought turtle beack ones, but they were like $250, these are way cooler looking and cheaper. <3 you Sony

+ Goaliegeek on May 28th, 2011 at 3:19 pm said:

So the issue I have most with my Turtle Beaches, is chat sounds and game sounds come from the same source, and its hard to hear the chat sounds and theres no way to turn that up or down. Will the PS3 headset have something where its a lot easier to hear chat sounds over game volume or adjust the chat volume?

For $99 these are going to get uncomfortable fast. Rather than promote this headset Sony should be working on fixing the PSN.

These look nice….

but yous should also add the option/feature to allow control of all game sound… and allow it to outputed to any bluetooth headset aswell…

These are definately a must have for any hardcore game I am sold already…

but SONY should also add the option/feature to allow control of all game sound… and allow it to outputed to any bluetooth headset aswell…

Me: I have very nearly bought the TB set recently. I didn’t want a corded set, but I was about to dish out the $$ for quality. This set means that now I won’t have to…provided it performs.

Now, we gotta talk about that design…sigh. Can we have a do-over?

i was just looking at competitor’s prices for similar model headphones(read: turtle beach headsets), and this actually a really great deal, especially if it’s of the quality advertised. i’ll definitely get these one day, if i have the money.

+ BZant1 on May 28th, 2011 at 7:20 pm said:

now THIS is what im talking about!!! ive been wanting one of these bad boys for awhile now. But 130+ is to high for me. This is a great price. it doesnt seem to be some flimsy one ear piece headset, and hopefully not one that dies to fast D: Although the sony one wasnt to bad, it got irritating to wear it after a couple hours. I will be getting this. And hopefully this isnt a let down. Which, so far, sony’s products have not disappointed me.

have a question… So with these stereo headsets i can hear all the noise from the game and if im trying to communicate with bluetooth i just use the micropfhone that it has and that eliminates the need to have a bluetooth right?

I’m stoked for this. I’ve been thinking about getting a new Sound System, but I guess I’ll just pick this up and keep my current one as it isn’t that bad for movies. I’m very curious as to how this virtual 7.1 is going to sound though, since that’ll be what makes my decision.

Yes


647

+ Panago177 on May 29th, 2011 at 12:18 am said:

crz17, yes it eliminates the use of blue tooth headphone. You’ll communicate via the wireless usb microphone. I use the tritton pro series headphones and commms on ps3 and xbox 360 are crystal clear and adjustable. :)
