5 out of 5 eggsGreat price per performance headset.

Pros: I've had it for almost 3 years now. Very good headset for the money, really good sound quality. Physically adjustable mic. Comfortable. Can be used with both PS3 , PC and even Mac i believe. Great gift for you kid(s) too.

Cons: Is made out of plastic, so it can be creaky but only when taking it on and off. I think I damaged my mic so it has a little bit of fuzzy feedback.
And finding the power button for the first time was tricky lol because it's not really a button.

2 out of 5 eggsJust Okay

Pros: Very Comfy headphones, mic is crisp and clear. Wireless works decent enough. Good customer service through Playstation.

Cons: Worked for about two and a half months flawlessly. Then, one day I plug it in and it will no longer take a charge. Called up playstation, sent it in, two weeks later received a brand new pair. Plugged it in, SAME exact problem except this pair didn't make it through a single day. Very Frustrating.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang for your Buck

Pros: • Great 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound
• One button to switch between stereo to surround
• Smooth sliding mic for when you need it
• Easy acces volume and 'voice to game ratio' volume slider
• Lightweight and not clunky or cumbersome
• Plug n' Play style of setup
• Non distracting notifications onscreen when button is pressed or volume is adjusted (Battery life, muted or not, etc)
• You don't necessarily look like an alien with it on
• Charge lasts for hours
• Very clear mic

Cons: • When out of range, headset audio doesn't get fuzzy and fade out, it stops altogether. May be inconvenient to some.
• No major (if ANY) problems with this headset yet!

Other Thoughts: I have been playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist "SvM" Online and it is fantastic with this headset. The difference from standard stereo and 7.1 surround is amazing and really almost gives you the upper hand when sniffing out enemies. Hearing their footsteps running up can also give you enough time to spin around before they can get ahold of you. Completely love this headset for the price.

2 out of 5 eggsAlright

Pros: Sounds good, the mic is very clear and quite comfortable to wear for extended time.

Cons: Likes to cut out and stop working for severall seconds at a time. Battery dies quite fast.

Other Thoughts: The big problem with this mic is how it will stop working, and it does it fairly often. Often enough to drive a person insane.

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome while they lasted

Pros: these things where awesome while they lasted but i will get to that later. i love the fact on how comfortable these where. the surround was sweet as well you can here people coming behind you which is helpful in FPS's.

Cons: i have gone through 2 pairs of these headsets. i originally got them then 6 months later they stopped working didnt turn on didnt charge nothing so i called sony they sent me a new pair. worked great for a year then when dead again. same thing happened wont charge wont turn on nothing. i have a felling it has to do with the battery. if you leave it plugged in to long it will fry the battery and if you constantly use it and cycle the battery it will also go dead.

Other Thoughts: beside it going bad i really liked the headset i am just a little disappointed at the fact that you spend this much money on a headset for it to not last more than a year. check the internet for this problem i am not the only one

5 out of 5 eggsEargasm

Pros: Very good sound. I was very surprised at the sound quality, even for it only being stereo sound. It sounds like surround. Yes, I do have the virtual surround off. I only want to play with these on.

Very comfortable. Can play for hours with little to no discomfort.

It has seperate controls for chat audio, which is nice. Also you can go into the XMB and turn off the mic independantly.

Cons: Not really any. I wish the battery would last all day. I get between 4- 6 hrs of battery life

Other Thoughts: I was on the fence about this for a while. I was worried about the lack of Surround and the rather low price. I do not regret it for a second. I bought these elsewhere but I wanted to share my thoughts and hope it may help whomever may be in the same boat. Good buy!

1 out of 5 eggsOverpriced junk

Pros: They're comfy

Cons: Battery life is absolutely HORRID. 2 Hours average just watching video. Nevermind trying to use the microphone (which is situated so far from your face you practically have to shout to be heard.)

Also, note - NO CHARGING cable is included in the box, so if your buying these just to use them with your PC.. better also buy a charging cable as well. (Typical Sony.)

Other Thoughts: Quite simply NOT worth the ridiculous $99 price tag (+$15 for the charging cable.)

Skip these.

4 out of 5 eggsGood cheap headset

Pros: I use these for PC gaming, and I've had very little problems with them.

Very cheap for it's quality. Came with a free copy of Doom for PS3 which I sold to best buy for $50 store credit. So the headset pretty much only cost $30. A steal!

Very comfortable. I wear these for 6-8+ hour gaming sessions and usually most headsets will begin to get uncomfortable, but these are far beyond most.

They cancel out noise enough to where I can't hear my wife anymore:)

Cons: Sometimes, like others are saying, it just loses connection for like 5 seconds and then connects back again like nothing happened.

Did not come with a USB charging cable, but you can buy one for like 5$.

The whole top piece and sides are enormous. They kinda look ridiculous, but I'm not trying to impress anyone.

Other Thoughts: I was torn between this or a Turtle Beach, I'm very glad I went with this headset!

I can go about 20 feet away from the USB receiver and still stay connected. (Works through walls!)

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice but not good for long use

Pros: Amazing sound, very clear voice chat, easy to install

Cons: short battery life, not for hardcore gamers, confusing battery recharge, cost isn't worth it's battery life

Other Thoughts: It would be great if I was a casual gamer or only wanted to listen to a few hours of music at a time
