Will any USB headset work with PS3?

18 replies 44687 views Edited Mar 17, 2009

Hi guys,

 

With all the great games coming out recently, I need to budget myself. In this regards, I cannot really afford the Sony blutooth headset as it retails for $50 cdn. As an alternate I wanted to get a cheap USB headset and I was wondering if this was possible. Can I use any USB headset with the PS3? (for example a Logitech one) Is it easy to sync with the console?

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think most are compatible, just make sure it's plug-n-play, you could use the PS2 one if you have it

I have a Logitech USB headset as a backup for my bluetooth one and it works fine. I have to adjust the volume when I switch between them, but I just had to plug it in and it worked right away.

Yes they should work fine but some will not work correctly. I have one given as a gift cost around $60 - $70 its really nice it looks like its made out of leather or something

 

anwyays, i dont use it because the volume is WWAAYYY too loud, so loud it literally hurts my ears, its like a very loud piercing sound when someone talks. Even with the ps3 settings to the lowest it doesnt make a difference. It has a built in volume control and mute button but the volume control doesnt work. its literally over 0 decibals loud

 

well it was made for pc and has drivers but obviously cant install on the ps3 so technically it does work but its way way excruciating loud

 

I found the headset its this one

i think it was supposedly endoresed by sum big gamer or something it looks sweet and has led lights across the top but the damn thing is too loud. I also tried emailing the company to see if there was anything i could do maybe add some kind of filter or a way to compress the volume but they were no help

They are all easy to sync up, also if your going to spend around $50 you might just want to get the SOCOM bundle, you get a game and a headeset for around $50, not a bad deal actaully, or you can just go the headset way and buy the Official Headset for I think $39.99, I think thats what it is.

and again you fail to read he said he looked up the BT headset for 50$ and he wants something cheaper....good job.
