Audio Output through bluetooth headset

12 replies 84520 views Edited Jan 15, 2011

Hi, newbie here.  Just want to confirm that game play (sound) cannot be output through a bluetooth headset with the PS3?  I've tried everything in the book on settings, etc.  My Motorola S9 headset pairs fine and it seems to configure fine in "audio settings."  However, I can't hear anything from the game through the headset.  When playing online, what does everyone do regarding wireless headsets w/microphones for game play? 

Thanks

You might find someone who knows the answer somewhere in the PS3 forums.

The PS3 does not send game audio through headsets (USB or Bluetooth).  Only voice chatter is sent through USB or Bluetooth.

For playing online everyone uses a USB/Bluetooth headset for chatter, and their TV/sound system speakers for game play sounds.

Or, they get a headset that has a connection to the composite sound cables, or digital optical, as well as USB.  They can get pricey, though.  But they are out there.

For voice chat, headset has to use USB, and for game sounds it'll have a breakout box of some sort that uses Digital Optical or the red/white composite cables.

Thank you, I appreciate the quick response.  Although disappointing, I appreciate your detailed answer on bluetooth headsets.  Is this a limitation of Bluetooth technology or a feature Sony hasn't incorporated into their boxes yet?  I assumed A2DP was capable of handling the audio output and voice chatter concurrently and Sony would have this technology on board with their units.

It is just the way Sony wanted to impliment it, so that you could watch and listen to the game through your TV or sound system whilst chatting to other players through the headset so that you can co-operate on the gameplay and discuss tactics.

One thing you could do it attach some headphone to your tvs headphone socket if you want to keep from disturbing people. You could do this either via normal wired headphones, there are also some wireless ones that uses radio frequencies or you could buy a bluetooth adapter.

i have recently got some bluetooth head phones that have connected to the ps3 (they are sony ones too)

 

I want them for audio (in game) so i don't disturb my wife whilst shooting at things. I play most games in silent now!!

 

The only disc that i have had in game audio through them is the mega drive ul;timate collection. If you can get in game audio from this then why not the other games??

the simple answer is after 6 years of firmware updates, 3 hardware revisions sony havent dealt with this glaring failing of their console, and this company who popularised the walkman dont understand the need for audio privacy via headphones ? it would not have killed them to put audio mixdown to stereo pair via bluetooth, it took 25mins to type this on ps3 controller.

perhaps sony should stop worrying about they want, and start listening to what their customers want.
