I’m not too big on keeping up with Sony’s Playstation 3 products, but I read that a few days ago that Sony unveiled a new PS3 wireless headset that is also compatible with PC and Mac. I’m wondering how well the headset will perform, considering it looks a lot better than most manufacturer developed audio peripherals. Although I am not a PS3 owner, I can’t help but like the price point of $99.99 for a wireless gaming headset. They look like a cross between the Razer Chimaera and the Logitech G35’s. More on a few of the specs are below:
- Price $99.99 (MSRP)
- 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound
- USB Wireless Adapter
- Retractable Microphone
- On Screen Headset Alerts (Battery Life, Sound Controls)
Official Press Release came via the Playstation Blog.
The official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset will be available for $99.99 (MSRP) at retailers nationwide this September. Many more of your favorite franchises, such as Killzoneand Gran Turismo, were also designed for surround sound audio. Featuring 7.1 virtual surround sound, the Wireless Stereo Headset lets you hear all the minor in-game audio clues clearly, whether you are in a firefight in a first-person shooter game or racing for the checkered flag.
Designed with comfort in mind for hours of gameplay, it’s the perfect addition to your PlayStation experience. Connecting the Wireless Stereo Headset with PS3 is made easy with the included USB Wireless Adapter. Precise volume controls and accessible microphone mute make it so you never have to interrupt gameplay to fumble for buttons. You can easily stay informed about battery status, sound controls, etc. with on-screen headset status updates. On top of that, the Wireless Stereo Headset also offers the highest quality voice chat for crystal clear online conversations. The mic is retractable so you can put it away if you just want to listen to music or play a single player game.
We’re very excited to be able to offer you yet another new way to get immersed in the game. Be sure to keep checking the Blog for more information soon.
