Official Sony PS3 Wireless Bluetooth Headset
Happened to grab one of these headsets a while before the standalone EU launch.
Attractive design and convenient application. Audio is clearly reproduced in both directions. This is further evident when using the exclusive PS3 feature of the headset; High Quality mode.
Other Features: Mute button to silent the mic and volume buttons for the ear. On screen display for battery and volume info, Charging cradle for open mic usage while charging the device and auto PS3 pairing that requires no Bluetooth USB connector.
Negatives: Not very comfortable; others may have less of a problem with, what would seem like, an oversized ear plug.
The PS3's Audio Device Settings gives the impression that this mic is very quiet, but no matter what audio level you pick (1-5) your voice volume seems the same. It's, therefore, hard to tell if it's possible to make your voice louder/quieter. HQ mode also introduces input-voice lag.
The power button is awkward to use while wearing the headset and when the mute button is used, the headset sequentially emits an inner-ear beep.
Make sure to charge the device in the cradle until it's fully charged (blinking red light eventually turns into a solid one). Connect the headset directly to the activated PS3, using a wired USB connection, without the cradle. The green light should flash, thus, indicating successful pairing.
If pairing fails (long red blink), go into Accessory Settings / Manage Bluetooth Devices to delete the PS3 Headset, should it be there, then try to pair again. Mine failed to pair due to it already being listed as a Bluetooth device, until I deleted it
