Official PS3 wireless stereo headset available on Sept. 6

Sony announces that a new, official wireless stereo headset will be available at retail on September 6.

7

In the market for a new headset for your PlayStation 3? Sony has announced that a new official wireless stereo headset will soon be available at retail. Unlike the standard Bluetooth headset, the new stereo headset plays back audio from the PS3 in 7.1 surround sound. It also includes a retractable microphone, and on-screen status messages when used on a PS3.

The official stereo headset for the PlayStation 3 will run $100 when it hits stores on September 6. The trailer for the peripheral is a bit silly (provided you know how a headset works), but it successfully illustrates how you'll be able to play stuff like Uncharted 3 without disturbing the attractive magazine-reader beside you.

      Some nice tits in this video.

      They really look great. Much better than the previous bluetooth earpiece they released.

      Not to nitpick but the new head set isn't bluetooth.

        Not sure what this is in reference to, what I see in this post is: "Unlike the standard Bluetooth headset, the new stereo headset plays back audio from the PS3 in 7.1 surround sound."

      There are things I would like to play with in that video, but the headset isn't one of them. Hint: It's the chick's left & right speakers.

      surround headsets are awesome, but those look fucking ridiculous.

        That's because they are playing Uncharted MP.

        Really, though. Take a video of yourself the next time you play a game. I probably look like a coma victim most of the time. Those actors were flailing the controllers all over the place like a 5 year old playing mario kart.

        i'm pretty sure it's a requirement to yell at the tv in any multiplayer game

      The idea is definitely sound, the headset is just fugly though. But that being said, I'm really excited for Uncharted 3!
