WANTED: In Ear Bluetooth/Wireless Earbuds with Mic for PS3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey thought I would give a quick shout to see if anything like this can be bought. I want to play GTA V online with my PS3 and looking for some nice wireless earbuds.

Last night I purchased a set of Turtle Beach PX51 wireless headphones. I am not overly impressed for $300, they are going back today.
THE GOOD:
I liked the size, how light they were and fit and finish is mostly nice.
THE BAD:
One very buttons rattles all the time, they cut out constantly (more so near the pc-where the ps3 sits) but also in the bedroom with no wireless stuff near the PS3. Bass is not very strong and surround is minimal but worst of all there is no volume control on the headset itself. The last few complaints Im sure is software and can be fixed when the cans are programed when connected to the pc but with the cans cutting out all the time I am not even going to spend more time learning these things.

I am going to grab a set of PS3 Pulse wireless today and try them out but I would really like a set of wireless earbuds so if im laying on my side with a pillow I don't have a large bucket cup pressing into the side of my head, very uncomfortable when laying on your side and a ear against a fluffy pillow. They also must have a mic for chat ability. I would prefer Bluetooth for audio and chat if possible.

Thanks, let me know what ya think.

The only way to get surround out of ps3 is:
1. External DAC with optical input and DDL! encoding (Astro Mixamp/etc, even the PX51 uses similar setting).
2. Licensed USB-headset like the Sony Pulse.

If you don't need surround it makes things alot easier. You can loop the sound through your PC soundcard which makes it possible to use any kind of headphones with the ps3. The only drawback is finding a mic that works with the ps3...
