4 out of 5 eggsLook Good, Sound Good, Feel Bad

Pros: Wireless is always nice, light weight and well balanced on your head.

Ears stay comfortable (but not top of head)

Great sound quality

Surprisingly ductile, after a year of wearing they have kept the original form.

Good mic quality, not having a boom I was very surprised that people in my party could hear me nice and clear with not too much background noise.

Cons: Short battery life (about 4-5 hrs)

Pretty uncomfortable on the top of the head, have 2 friends that had these and they say the same thing. I often have to adjust the position of them in order to keep wearing them.

Buttons and sliders are pretty confusing. Most of the issue is just finding them, the power slider is tricky and I don't always find it right away, same with the mute button.

Game and Chat volume is 1 slider. This can be kinda annoying because if you just want the chat to be louder you have to move the slider to chat, then adjust your overall volume slider because now your game volume has decreased.

Cracked housing!!!! I take pretty good care of my headset, and over the course of 1 year from putting the headset on and off my left speaker, just under the silver disc has cracked.

Bass Impact technology? More like annoying vibrators attached to your temples. Thankfully you can turn these off. While they are fun to listen to music like dubstep they are NOT designed for gaming, its just too rumble in your ears, even the slightest nudge of the slider overpowers the rest of your game. Not to mention in party chats when you have that one friend with the low voice these things make him sound like Charlie Brown's parents.

Other Thoughts: I bought these a year ago from newegg for $125, compare that to what it is now.

I wasn't a big fan of the 6 preset options. I used these for two things, gaming on my PS3/PS4 and occasionally with my PC (which by the way work just fine, just have to have the wireless fob, just having the mini usb plugged in didn't work) Sometimes i would accidentally hit the preset selector button thinking it was the mute, which is on the other side, and now i have to slowly press the thing 5 times to get back to where i was.

If you have a small head these will fit quite nicely i would image.

I would not recommend these to a friend. They just aren't comfortable and besides that the features and button layout just don't feel right. Not to mention turning them on while wearing them, once they connect they make a long high pitched tone that is almost ear piercing.

They do show the volume level and battery level when you turn the volume up or down on your ps4 which is kinda cool i have to admit.

Seeing that mine cracked 1 week after warranty im going to go back to the more comfortable turtle beaches. Going to try out the ear force 400's.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Headset

Pros: Very Comfortable and sound great. The microphone is built into the earpiece so there is no breakable stick mic hanging off the side. Includes cable for use in portable devices if desired though this cable is used often if battery dies (see cons)

Cons: There is no charger included. There is no way to know battery life until it dies. Don't forget to turn them off or they will die, which defeats the purpose of having wireless headphones.

Other Thoughts: I would buy these again but include the purchase of a charging cable.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Range/reception is great, if you're in line of sight it's about 30 feet. Lasts about 4 hours on a full charge. Bassimpact is a cool effect. Mic comes through clear and headset function works flawlessly.

Cons: Not the most comfortable, my ears ache after several hours of wearing them. Great for gaming but sound quality suffers for music.

Other Thoughts: Worth the money.

3 out of 5 eggsSONY Pulse - Not the best headset

Pros: -Hidden mic
-OK Bass
-Very comfortable
The worst part of every wireless headset is that you have to charge it every once in a while, but with these you can still charge it while you are playing.

Cons: To start off, I've had these headsets for about a year and they can break easily. They are not the most durable headset and my ear cups just fell off after 5 falls from 3-4 feet. This headset is also not good for shooters where you need to hear footsteps. I compared this to my Turtle Beach p11 ($60) and with the turtle beach, I could hear more clearly. Furthermore, they also get very loose after you wear them for about 8 months.

Other Thoughts: For the sound comparison, I used Black Ops 2 and went on the map called HYDRO, which has a lot of background noise, and with the Pulse headset it was very hard to hear footsteps. Now with the the turtle beach, they sort of eliminated the background noise and it made it easier to hear footsteps

1 out of 5 eggsThese Phones Don't Work

Pros: When they work, they provide wireless service.

Cons: These phones are cutting out all of the time and don't have more than a 20 foot range. Don't waste your money on them.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Headset

Pros: Really good sound quality, although it is my first headset it fits so perfectly to what I play. This would be my #1 recommended headset for anyone using a PS3 and possibly a PS4 with the new update. It comes with its own app on PS3 that has modes specifically made for games like The Last of Us and GTA5.

- Sleek nice Design
- Hidden mic
- Good sound quality for a good price
- Lots of modes to suit the game you play

Cons: After about 6 months of use the silver part just above the earmuffs started cracking, maybe it's because I have a big head and use it frequently but I sent in one already because of the cracks and the USB dongle not actually connecting to my device anymore. Overall it's my most preferred headset but afterall I am a first time buyer for these type of things.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend to anyone using a PS3 and possibly PS4, works with PC but not sure if all the features are available on the PC such as the mic.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, a little hard to use.

Pros: Sound quality is great, and well built. Very comfortable to wear for hours at a time. Battery will get you through a normal length gaming session of 3-4 hours easily.

Cons: The controls are sometimes hard to find. Have had these for months and still have trouble locating the on/off switch quickly. The markings to distinguish left/right are difficult to spot especially in low light.

Other Thoughts: Love these and I am happy I bought them.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Headstet on the Market

Pros: The overall construction and durability of this headset is second to none. Very well made, clean lines, and pleasing to the eye as well. Nice weight to the headset without being too heavy. The cushion that fits around your head is a nice soft material.
Sound quality is fantastic. The sound is quite noticeably better than several other headsets I have owned, including the previous Sony Headset. What I like the best I think, is the built in microphone. I never have to worry about snapping a boom off or have to constantly maneuver the microphone out of my way when I am playing games, all the while your voice is getting distorted. I have had several comments from friends while playing asking me if I had gotten a new headset because the speech from my microphone was super clear, it was like we were talking in person. I can't ask for much more that that. The bass Impact is a great feature, but to be honest I don't use it all the much. There is a slider on the headset where you can control how strong or how weak you want this. I just turn mine down low, enough to have some impact. When you have it turned up to the max, you will definitely know, as the bass hits pretty good and does rumble the eardrums. Having this turned up to the max though for extended periods of time, it should be noted that it will drain your battery quicker. Numerous features to use with the headset. Different sound settings accessible from a touch of a button on the headset. Another feature I enjoy is the sound/voice toggle. When in game you can use this slider to manipulate how loud you want to hear something. If there is someone in your party that just wont shut up, aside from muting him you can turn up the music to drown him out. Vise Versa, if you need to hear a party member, switch to higher voice and drown out the in game music.
Some have complained about battery life. I haven't had any problems with using mine so far. As I have stated using the Bass Impact will shorten your gaming time. On low, or almost off, I can get 6 hours.

One tip, I use a Ipad charger. Plug your headset cable into the charger and it charges in what seems to be half the time from the PS3.

Cons: I have not run into any problems as of yet. My only issue with the headset is that there are so many features on the headset around the earphones themselves, that it does take some time wearing them on a consistent basis to get accustomed to where everything is located on the headset. I seem to be always fishing for the on/off switch and I'm hitting the microphone mute or something.

Other Thoughts: Love the Bluetooth capabilities.
Who want to be wired nowadays.
You can connect these to my computer, play ITunes, go out and cut the grass.
Range is about 25 to 30 feet.
Will work with the PS4, Confirmed.
