I'm relatively new to the PS3 world, and was wondering what kind of headphone options are out there. I'm looking for something that will give me both game and chat audio, and include a microphone. I know the PS3 has Bluetooth capabilities, but from what I understand, it only gives you chat audio.

Any ideas? I have the PS3 connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, if that makes any difference.

Bucko, do you know if there's a way to make the x41 work with HDMI? I have to chose between superior sound and superior picture right now (sound winning of course).

My bad here is the PX21's I have.

They don't sell the P21's on that website anymore because that was what I was originally looking for. The PX21's work on the PS3, 360, PC, and Mac too.

Are those ones wired or wireless and connect through an RF receiver?

They are wired and connect to the surround sound MixAmp. They are like 300 bucks once you pay for shipping.

Damn. I had some Turtle Beach X41s for the Xbox that were pretty badass but only $200.

I got the P21s for the PS3, and they are not quite as good as the X41s, but for $70 they are close enough.

I wanted a good surround sound headset and they are all pretty expensive (between 120-260 bucks) so I just decided to get the best ones I could find.

I thought about getting Tritton's because people said their sound quality is better than or just as good as the A40's and a lot cheaper. The Tritton 720's are only 120 bucks and the Tritton AX Pro's are 180 but a lot of people say they break easily and have to get them replaced after a few months.

I feel like I'm cheating with these headsets on. Jesus Christ these headphones + Mix Amp + toslink optical cable = God Mode. If nobody in a FFA lobby uses n00btubes or Ninja Pro I will post 30-0 scores every time. LMAO

Yeah they definitely help. I was prone to camping when I used them though. I would just sit somewhere if I heard a noise and then determine where it was coming from and let it pass me and then kill whoever it was. Its not cheating dude, you are just willing to do more to win.

It is amazing how much better surround sound headsets are than stereo. I haven't tried playing TDM or DOM yet, but I imagine that my headsets will be pretty much useless because I will hear all of my teammates footsteps around me.

I haven't played in months but I'm fairly certain that your own teammates footsteps are much quieter.
