Pre-ordered mine thru amazon when they had a pre-order deal going for $65. That alone makes it a worthwhile purchase to me. I did find it strange that it says on the info page you can use them for movies, and says that the surround sound does not work with blu ray movies. One would think it's the same encoding for the surround sound in gaming as it is in movies, but blu ray movies could have a completely different encoding or just be less compressed which would make sense. Maybe we'll see a patch later, but I wouldn't count too heavily on it. It does mention high-fidelity sound for movies, which is probably about the same quality sound as the sony wireless stereo headsets I'm currently using for watching movies or possibly better quality. At any rate, i'm really looking forward to trying them out.

I'm thinking they needed to keep the price at around $100. Any higher and they price themselves out of the market.

Smaller than I thought, but very comfortable. I couldn't find the on button, when I did I felt stupid. It is a very less is more design and looks good.

I would be interested in any info on getting them to work with the PC.

The instructions are kinda vague, I did'nt have much much time to play with it. The audio side it pretty much plug and play, however the bluetooth side I am still having trouble getting the mic to work. It is bluetooth on the mic side right?

I got the mic into discovery mode (Blue light-2 blinks) and searched it on the PS3 then nothing... Ideas?

This thing is sweet by the way!

It is not supposed to be using Bluetooth.  It uses the USB Receiver for both game audio and chat.

HaHa. That is why it would not work then. Guess I was thinking about the turtlebeach set then. Thanks.
