    Hey lads.

    I need to buy myself a mic for gaming on the PS3 and also on the PC.

    So I have been checking ebay and have found 3 mics that sounds very good :p

    OFFICIAL SONY GAMING BLUETOOTH WIRELESS HEADSET:
    http://cgi.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...72241&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_2963wt_1162

    Should I buy one of them??
    Which should I choose?

    Thanks lads!

    The official one is not bad at all, and its compatible with the HQ mode.

    Hands down, it has to be the official one. And when you get it, connect it via the USB cable to enable the HQ mode ;)

    LOL, the only audio you get through the headset is the other players voices ;)

    Yeah, generally, 1x earpiece headsets only allows the user to hear other players voices, as opposed to PC double earpiece headsets/headphones that transmit in game audio and player voices ;)

    Does that make sense? :roll:

    Ive tried a few different Bluetooth headsets on my PS3 (including the GioTeck model) and I must admit, non of them compare to the official SONY one ;)

    PLUS, you only get the HQ mode that improves the sound and gives you an onscreen display when the mic is muted or volume changed with the official model :)

    It is :)

    The headset is nice and cheap here, but you may have to wait for stock m8: http://www.play.com/Games/PlayStati...y-PS3-Wireless-Bluetooth-Headset/Product.html

    TBH, for PC gaming, a double earpiece headset is the way to go, but for the PS3, you cant beat the official one ;)

    Ah I can't use play.com for buying them :p
    I can only buy movies, games and stuff from there.
    Sucks!

    I have to buy it on ebay which is over priced.
    But me and my bro need a good mic piece so We will just stick with it anyway :p

    Cheers!

    I love it.

    I don't really like the 256 player maps tho!
    I prefer 64 player!

    bets to game at night, cause during the day..those minors don't heal you..even with the symbol over there heads that clearly state they can heal you!!
    Too busy trying to shoot someone down!
    Useless wankers!

    but I can't wait for the mic!! they will get a good irish ear full!!
    I can tell ya that much!
