Which headset is the best?

9 replies 122 views Edited Dec 24, 2010

I can't decide which headset to get for my PS3...

So far I've narrowed it down to basically these 4:

Jawbone Icon

Turtle Beach Ear Force PX21

Turtle Beach Ear Force PBT

Official PS3 Bluetooth

Price is not a problem, I can afford all of them.  The wire on the PX21 is not a problem.  It's only about 8 feet between the PS3 and the spot on the couch where I sit (and the cord is 16 ft.)  I'm looking more for difference in quality, features, ease of use, etc.

One of the benefits of the PX21 is that it also has the game sound.

A benefit of all the bluetooth is that I can also use them with my phone....

Any other pros and cons of them?

Thanks in advance to everybody who answers!

Actually, lets throw in the Logitech G930 and the Logitech G35...Those two are a bit more expensive, and I might not be able to get them, but maybe....

IMO the best option is the official one from Sony.  Battery life is fantastic, it has great sound quality and it has dual microphones for noise cancellation.  Very solid headset.  Not sure why you'd need to drop the cash on anything else.

Plantronics voyager pro. I have ownede em all and this is the best one for sound quality. Turtle beach are decent but break because of the cheap material they use. Official wasnt comfortable at all for me.

If you prefer the bluetooth/wireless headset go for the Official PS3 Bluetooth. I have used that one for a year now and I have no complaints. It's great IMO

But will bluetooths that are made for cell phones work well with the PS3?  Jawbone is a good brand and I know they make good products, but I don't know how well it will work with the PS3...

Like what makes the PS3 bluetooth better than others for the PS3?  Is it just sound quality, or are there features made for the PS3 that others don't have?

There aren't very many other bluetooths out there for gaming I think. That aren't a phone bluetooth.

I had a Jabra bluetooth which came with a game and it all around was not a good mic. So I decided no more of that and just went with the official Sony bluetooth because I don't like wires.

Well from my experience, Sony mic is:

-easy to use

-has amazing sound quality for the user

-and has great sound quality so others can hear the user clearly

-easily accesible mute button

-easily accesible volume buttons

-easily accesible on/off button

-it has 2 ways of charging in the dock and with the usb

Like someone mentioned it is uncomfortable at first. I wear it everyday though so my ear is used to it, it doesn't bother me anymore.

i think the real comparison stands between 2 wireless headsets:

 

1. sony offical wireless headset

2. logitech g930

 

both headsets support the 7.1 dolby surround.

 

i still haven't made up my mind on which one to buy. the sony is cheaper by roughly 20$. buw which one is best??

This is what you want:
http://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Stereo-Headset-Playstation-3/dp/B0053OLY9O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=134...

These are amazing in terms of sound quality and people could hear you much clearer.
