New Official Wireless Stereo Headset Coming for PS3

Anand Agarwal's Avatar Posted by Group Manager, Peripherals Marketing and Licensing, SIEA

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.

Sounds great, but its on Pre-order. You can’t buy it ANYWHERE yet. Why rush to post an item when you can’t sell it yet Playstation? Is it because you want to make it look like your company is doing well?? Thought so.

If its not wireless then I’m not getting this. =/ Wireless is the way of the future. Why go backwards with wires?

Hustlas_Union said:

May 30th, 5:48 am

compare to other headsets with 7.1 virtual surround sound do u think this are better?

DEADLYassasin12 said:

These look amazing! I’m wondering if thats brushed metal on the head band. and be honest does it have 7.1 surround or just support 7.1 and only run off 5.1 because thats all the ps3 can support (fact) unless you release a firmware update which would be amazing. if these are better then my astros i might consider.

jle8OF12 said:

May 30th, 7:13 am

sounds great so I am definately gonna buy it because I am getting tired of my old bluetooth but do you know if they will be implementing new chat systems to go along with it? it would be cool if the new headset supported that

It’s kind of expensive, but I guess it’s worth it!

NO BLUETOOTH!! How is this even possible. I only have tow USB ports on my PS3 and 1 is going to be filled with a USB adapter for a set of headphones that could have been bluetooth. Makes no sense whatsoever. >=[

I will definitely be buying one of these! Always wanted the wireless Turtle Beach but couldn’t afford it. Plus I’m not a big fan of 3rd party accessories. I like to stick with all Sony brand items so I will definitely be buying one of these.

On the pictures of the headset, it says the design is subject to change or something. I hope it does. It is kinda boring looking. But I still will buy it no matter what it looks like just because of the functionality of it.

I’ve never bought a stereo headset before, but this will more than likely be my first! :D

Buy the Turtle beach Px21… It’s $79.95 and has all the features – excluding wireless connection – and has 16ft of cord. why do you need wireless? it’s not like your playing from across your house. let’s say you need to go to the bathroom, just put your headset on your couch or something. seriously, nobody bought a ps3 just to hear some retard take a dump


May 30th, 2:01 pm

Turtle Beach…although it is nice that these have a rechargable battery.

RGW96 said:

May 30th, 4:37 pm

can i trade in my PS3 blutooth for this?????

pHaKe-_-KITE said:

May 30th, 6:15 pm

I see a lot of people complaining about the store. i don’t see why you’re complaining so much, you do realize that Sony isn’t JUST PS3, right? also, to this headset: WOW! if i could afford those, i’d buy one hands down. the only issue i can see with this, is i always end up losing my headphones for periods at a time. will there be a way to have it beep or something along those lines on command so i can find it if i ever lose it?

DATRUTH52190 said:

philepay_pwns said:

May 30th, 8:18 pm

will they just work for your ps3 or can you also plug them into mp3 players + computer??

Nemesis_Skillz said:

May 31st, 7:29 pm

LucifersCurse said:

June 4th, 12:39 am

Will it be compatible with the NGP? even if there was a usb point to plug the adapter into that would be sweet.
also any specs yet? battery life?
It’s on the wish list

Techni said:

June 4th, 1:27 am

PLEASE put custom soundtrack controls (play/pause, next, prev) controls on it!

Bondalfen said:

June 4th, 12:41 pm

They look clean and smooth! Very comfortable, but a little heavy :L But we’ll see! :D Can you guys answer if it have a inline controller or is everything on the headset? Can’t wait <3

stop production of this thing immediately, turn it into bluetooth, then resume production. I wanted one right up until i found out there was no bluetooth. i would love to use this on the plane, riding shotgun on road trips, sitting in my bunk listening to music while deployed, but since i can’t….oh well, extra hundred buck for me

These look awesome. Even though I already have a Turtle Beach wired headset that I love, I will still pick these up just for the price/wireless/great style of these. Way to go top notch Sony.

boaz996 said:

i’am realy going to buy this headset when will it be in Europe?

MARKLTboy said:

June 8th, 2:16 pm

The PSvita is really nice, but one thing that should have been fixed is the speakers. Because when we are playing, our fingers and hands will be covering up the speakers and we won’t be able to enjoy hearing sound effects and actions.

argkonsteel said:

June 12th, 8:33 pm

Instead of an adaptor wouldn,t der b a software to relay the sound, my sony dr-bt101 I’d just bought is useless..sigh

Hi Anand,

Would you please confirm whether or not this would be compatible with PC?

I’m about to buy another headset but if this Official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset is fully compatible with PC then I may wait for a review in September.
