Which Headset?

13 replies 2 views Edited Jan 23, 2010
Sorry if this has been asked hundreds of times but the search bar didn't help me very much.  Ok, so I've been doing some looking lately and have decided that I want to buy a headset to use on my PS3.  I know my choices are between USB and Bluetooth.  So I was just wondering which would be the best bet.  I sit within 10 feet of my PS3 so cord length is not an issue.  I am looking for the best quality headset available that is $60 or less.  Sorry if I asked for too much and thanks in advance for any replies.

I bought a turtle beach wired headset.  I tried a blue tooth and I did not care for it.  The turtle beach has worked great so far, seperate game and chat volumes, mic mute and the sound does not go through the TV which is great for late night gaming.  I think they are around 80 bucks.

I was leaning towards that one or just a cheaper USB headset.  I do know that the Official has an on screen interface that I really like.  Is there really a difference besides that though?

Do you have to have special inputs on your TV for that to work?  That sounds really neat and if I am going to spend 50 for a headset, what's 30 more?

The sony bluetooth headset is a good headset, however, it is rather uncomfortable, at least for me. I find that after an hour or so, it starts to really hurt my ear.

Ok, so right now the official headset sounds like a good pne, but I'm going to look in to the turtle beach thing.  Still taking suggestions....

Ok so after researching the turtle beach, it appears you have to change the audio settings on your ps3 if you dont want to use it every time and it just seems like a hassle, even though it sounds sweet.  i guess I will just see what my walmart has and I'll go with my gut feeling between the official and the turtle beach, thanks for all of the help everyone!
