Anand Agarwal's Avatar + Posted by Anand Agarwal on May 27, 2011 // Sr. Manager, Brand Marketing

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.

For you all that are asking about the Store!!!!!! Look i saw this on G4, x-play, and i have seen this online before. Now there is a new DLC for Dead Space 2 coming out on June 2nd ok Tuesday is the 31st now can you do the math. They said that the Store will be up by the end of the month Tuesday the 31st and new content will be out on June 2 as they are doing two updates a week. Now if im wrong then i hope everyone hangs SONY up on Cross. I know that i will!!!!!!!

i dont know man, $100 for a pair of super bulky and potentially uncomfortable headphones does not sound like my cup of tea. i remember buying the official playstation bluetooth ear piece; it felt like needles in my ear after five minutes……… i might give them a try, but with a firm grip on the receipt.

Awesome or not? Tried many Headsets (5.1 and Stereo), many of them suffering White Noise problems. Hope this one not.

You say its a small USB Connector, i think only for Voice. But how is the Connection to the Game Sound? Stereo Output from the MultiAV Cable? Or hopefully Optical Out <— would love that. Also love the "Virtual 7.1", like the Tritton AX 720. <– Returned "White noise".

Cons for this Product:
- "Enjoy hi-fidelity sound while watching your favorite movie " <–Virtual Surround dont work on Blu-ray Movies. This one sucks REALLY REALLY HARD for an $99 Headset.
- No seperate Volume Controll for Chat and Game Sound? C´mon!
- Slide or Tap on the Headset for Volume Controll. Sony should better include "usefull" Features like the Two Above.
- aweful Design

If you really Stream the whole Voice AND Game Sound over USB, open this to other Manufacturers.

will these be able to send all gaming music and voice to the headset or is it just for chat?


319

+ PHATTY5 on May 27th, 2011 at 1:32 pm said:

For 100 bucks sounds like you are getting a lot for your money. Even though I love them, it’s a shame I already bought some Trittons.

Finally something worth looking forward to besides Battlefield 3! This makes up for the crappy CoD Bundle.

i guess ill buy it, it looks really awesome and im tired of those [DELETED] bluetooth mics.
But, instead of releasing headphones, why not fix the store and bring it up?

+ TheRazor375 on May 27th, 2011 at 1:43 pm said:

Hey what about current stereo usb headsets? Will there be an update that’ll let game sound through all usb headsets or is this feature exclusive to the sony headset?

I’ve already got the original BT headset which I’ll continue to use for my PS3 (seeing as how I’m not much of an online competitive player) but these would be nice to use on my PC for some upcoming MMO’s

Looks great but how do they compare to ASTRO’S A40 or A30 headsets with the wired or wireless mixamp providing surround via toslink?


334

+ Satish13 on May 27th, 2011 at 2:23 pm said:

This thing is so BEAST!!! I just wish it had a bluetooth option, wouldn’t have liked to use it with my PSP Go and any other bluetooth device, Either that, or sony releases Software for the PSP on PSN to let us use the device without the USB stick. But still, the look of theses headphones are amazing, I pretty much geeked out at this. &.1 surround on this thing?! Just Amazing! I’ve been waiting for Sony to all video output direct to headphones. I guess WIreless would be a lot clearer than to use bluetooth, nothing to pair together either.

GREAT, AWESOME and many other things


336

+ bgardner on May 27th, 2011 at 2:27 pm said:

@QUINTISON
this and (ASTRO’S [A40 or A30]) is only 7.1 virtual surround sound with stereo speakers. You need 4-5 speakers in each side of the headphones to get real 5.1 on sharkoons X-Tatic Digital and trittons ax pro for that work on the ps3 for now

Bluetooth offers a maximum bitrate of 2-3 Mbps (and that has to be shared among 7 devices), whereas LPCM 7.1 needs way more than that (6-18 Mbps).

what a waste of an update but i guess Sony needs to come up with more garbage to make up for sales loss and the store not being up
