165w ago - Today Sony's Hardware Product Marketing Manager Anand Agarwal has revealed that an official Wireless Stereo Headset is coming for the PS3 entertainment system.

According to their [Register or Login to view links], surround sound on the PS3 requires system software version 3.70 or later and surround sound does not work with Blu-ray Disc movies.

To quote: Do you hear that sound? It's the sound of the enemy approaching your bunker. Only you've heard them way before they've even seen you and now your commandos are ready to unload.

What's your advantage? It's simple - the official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset - the latest addition to the PlayStation 3 accessories family.





The official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset will be available for $99.99 (MSRP) at retailers nationwide this September. Many more of your favorite franchises, such as [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links], were also designed for surround sound audio.

Featuring 7.1 virtual surround sound, the Wireless Stereo Headset lets you hear all the minor in-game audio clues clearly, whether you are in a firefight in a first-person shooter game or racing for the checkered flag.

Designed with comfort in mind for hours of gameplay, it's the perfect addition to your PlayStation experience. Connecting the Wireless Stereo Headset with PS3 is made easy with the included USB Wireless Adapter.

Precise volume controls and accessible microphone mute make it so you never have to interrupt gameplay to fumble for buttons. You can easily stay informed about battery status, sound controls, etc. with on-screen headset status updates.

On top of that, the Wireless Stereo Headset also offers the highest quality voice chat for crystal clear online conversations. The mic is retractable so you can put it away if you just want to listen to music or play a single player game.

We're very excited to be able to offer you yet another new way to get immersed in the game. Be sure to keep checking the Blog for more information soon.

Hello there,

I'm very new to the PS3 scene. Have been looking around for a wireless 5.1 + headphone setup and found this thread. The local gaming stores (South-Africa) can not give me any trustworthy advice on what to buy and choice is limited.

Can I buy and use most BT headphones and get gaming sound (single player) I'm on CFW3.55, or only OFW 3.70? ( hope i can mention that fact here, please delete if I'm out of line). I would like a multi platform unit rather than a dedicated PS3 set.

Many thanks

Is there anything out there that is not over $100 and is easy to plug in and listen and chat at the same time? I like these but they are pretty pricey, just like how i currently use the PS3 official Bluetooth any other Bluetooth will work as well, so is there anything out there the costs less and world like these ?
