I use my stereo headset for playing at night, but I find that it is worthless when I want to play and chat at the same time. I've turned the sidetone all the way up to 5, and I can still barely hear myself talking when the game is quiet (and not at all when the game is loud). I've adjusted the mix slider so that they're even, which is where I want it, but even when I change the mix to be more chat heavy it's still too soft.
I can hear other people talking fine, I just can't hear myself worth crap, and I don't want to be shouting into the mic when my kids are upstairs asleep. I think it's also partially an issue with the design of the headset itself, because I've noticed if I push the mic a little closer to my mouth I can hear myself much better... but obviously this is not a realistic option while I'm playing, and there's no way to actually adjust it inward permanently.
Has anyone else had this issue, or anyone have any ideas to help me? The headset is great for listening to gameplay, but I end up having to use my bluetooth headset when I want to chat, which means I can't hear the game that well (because I have to keep the volume down on my TV late at night).

Side tone is not adjusted by the headset so stop messing with the controlls on the headset.
Sidetone is a PS3 firmware feature and is only controlled buy the PS3.
People won't have a clue why your headset is to low in volume.
Infact most wanted the turn it down options under triangle sub menu as it was to high...

The Headset is stupidly cheaply made. I told you as a favour to stop messing with it because if the USB dongle is any thing to go buy Your going to break the controlls....
Your headset is ultra rare one then as users wanted lower volume option in the PS3 firmware. Does the rest of the headset firmware functions work. The on/off option...

Yeah, I can change the volume (in the settings, not on the headset) and do other things, and it works, it just never gets loud enough that I can really hear myself. Which is weird since I can hear other players' voices just fine.
Maybe it's just me trying not to talk too loud so I won't wake anyone up. Or maybe it's an issue with Uncharted 3 - I'll have to try it with another game sometime.
