Great Headset, RecommendedDec 08, 2010
By EPHiCS I noticed that this headset got some negative reviews so i decided to write my own. First of all, this headset is very comfortable, sleek, and easy to use even when it's on your ear. The sound quality is also great and I didn't get problems with me hearing my friends or them not being able to hear me.
I have no idea why some people have problems paring the device. It's pretty simple and straightforward. I connected the headset to the PS3 and the red light on the blue-tooth came on. I let it charge for about 2 hours until the red light turned off. I then turned it on and got a message on the PS3 saying the blue-tooth device has been connected.
I went under Settings - Accessories - Blue-tooth Devices on the PS3 and saw my blue-tooth device listed there. You can easily connect and disconnect the device by clicking Triangle here. Sometimes when I turn on my headset I notice that it doesn't automatically sync so I have to go here and just click triangle and then connect. No big deal to me.
I also saw another review saying that the audio comes from the TV instead of the device. You can easily change where the audio comes from by going under Settings - Accessories - Sound Settings on your PS3. You can make the audio come out of the TV or the Headset.
In conclusion, I think this device received some negative reviews just because the user didn't take the time to configure the device properly or had no idea what they were doing. I would definitely recommend this headset. Works flawlessly on my PS3 and the sound quality is great. On top of that, the design is very nice and it works on either ear.

Very comfortableNov 12, 2010
By justin donovan As usual amazon's price and shipping was a great deal.
Product is very lightweight, compared to other bluetooth headsets that tend to feel heavy after a hour+ of wearing, I've worn this for 3 hours with no ache or heavy feeling.
It comes with about half battery, a 6in usb to mini cable, and a stand. For those with the energizer 2 port controller charger, this will not fit the holder designed for the older version, however it works with the mini cable supplied plugged directly into the energizer charger.
Pros: PS3 ready, plugs into the ps2 and registers in 1 second, big mute bottom on the side, great mic and speaker. Cons: Ear clip seems cheap, will probably break in the future, they should of shipped two. Price was a little high, but version one is only $10 cheaper as of today.

I Like itNov 18, 2010
By VtwinDude In the past I've used my mobile bluetooth headsets for PS3 gaming and was always frustrated by the lack of sound quality, or functionality (with some headsets I would have to "connect" in the system menu every time I wanted to use them). Echo always seemed to be a pain with the few I've used!
I received the PS3 2.0 headset yesterday and spent about an hour and a half playing Black Ops multiplayer and it was noticably better. Little to no echo, very clear and seemed to be intergrated with the system better than 3rd party headsets (paring was simply plugging in - it also tells you the charge on the screen like the controller does which is nice). Thus for the short time I've used it it seems to be worth the money.
Also, it paired easily to my Android phone and the sound was also clear and loud (I left myself a message with it). The only two downsides are; 1) the plastic ear "hoop" is pretty cheap and I worry about breaking, and 2) no wall charger (comes with a short usb cable so you can chard from the PS3 - or any other usb device).

very niceNov 27, 2010
By Steve im really glad i bought this.
pros - great audio quality - great mic with HQ sound and noise cancelation - lighter, smaller, sleeker than the previous model. this thing really looks and feels great. you can barely feel i on you and it doesnt fall off when you shake your head. - lights up all different colors. its def a nice looking piece. - smaller ear clip which is more comfortable than the previous - very easy to use mute button as well as all other buttons - it does not hurt my ear. other headsets i have used in the past gave me a really sore ear after and this does not. - comes with a stand
cons - the earbud isn't the most comfortable thing in the world but it doesnt hurt after a while so its fine. i just wish they made it sort of like skullcandy earbuds that have different rubber sizes that fit in your ear for maximum noise cancelation and comfort. - the stand is so small and light when you have it plugged in it doesnt like to stand up, the weight of the wire tends to tip it over. - the usb cable it comes with is about 6 inches long. its ok if your just charging it but many people like to set the headset up on the stand close to them so they can still use it to talk through while its charging. - very sensative. this is a good thing and a bad thing. but it literally picks up any tiny noise around you.

Huge Upgrade! (from previous model)Dec 08, 2010
By O. R. Rodriguez Better looking, smaller, more comfortable, it makes the previous model look so bad. I used the first model a lot and thought it was great, car noise was no problem while talking on the phone, but the headset itself was rough. Now this 2.0 version is here to set the record straight, as slim as the PS3 slim when compared to the fat one, i love it!
For those with previous models, i reccomend selling it and upgrading to this sweet PS3 headset, is so worth it
