Has anyone been able to get a Logitech BT headset hooked up? I can't get mine recognized.

I have the same headset. I am guessing you might have it working by now, but it seems the H700 has to be synced everytime you shut down the PS3.

Thanks

Can someone please answer my question above and also, of all the headsets available, what do you think is the best - especially for gaming with the PS3?

Thanks

jpz, I have to synced mine everytime and I think it may have more to do with shutting down the system or signing off, but I haven't done trial and error yet.

I'm debating whether to just go out and buy a BT headset, or should I wait until Sony eventually releases one for the PS3?

I would buy one. Especially if you have or are going to get other BT devices like a cell phone. I bought the Motorola H700. It got a cnet rating of 8.0. I paid a ridiculous 99.99 at BB and now they are charging 124.99. Places on the net like etronics are selling it for half including shipping. It works very well JPZ. You won't go wrong. I am ordering one from etronics and returning mine to BB.

I have 2 Cardo Scala BT headsets (the 500 and the 700) and they work great. The nice feature about the 700 is that it can be paired to two different devices at the same time. Whereas the 500 had to be paired everytime between my Treo and the PS3. Not to mention they can be bought from Ecost.com for dirt cheap! I just picked the 700 up $49.00, and then $10.00 off for using Google Checkout, $38.55 total including shipping...not bad!

Also the H700 has noise cancellation, so when playing games you don't have to mute or turn the volume down to where you don't want it to be, i.e. too low.

OK, these are the specs that I need in my BT headset:

1. easy to access Mute button on the headset

2. Compatible with the PS3

3. Range of at least 20 feet

4. Good audio quality

5. Noise-cancellation

6. got good reviews/ratings

7. Volume control

8. Comes with charger

9. Easy to sync with PS3

10. Comfortable

And, would be nice, but not necessary - can be used with PC

Please tell me if you know of any BT headsets that meet these specifications.

Thank You!

BTW - if it did work with a PC, then can I use my bluetooth receiver to sync it with my PC?

I would like to order my new headset tonight, so if someone could reply quickly I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Motorola H700
1. Yes: there are two volume buttons, press both to mute with thumb and index finger
2. Yes
3. Yes: Range of 30 ft.
4. Yes: excellent audio quality
5. Yes
6. Yes: one of the best in terms of reviews
7. Yes: two buttons or volume control one top one botton you decide which to set
8. Yes
9. Yes: Only issue is if you shut the PS3 off you have to resync each time but is easy between 30 second to a minute tops to do
10. Yes: very comfortable, you won't notice it is there, goes against ear not inside.

Blue tooth is blue tooth from what I understand, so it should work with any device like your pc.

Just ordered mine from etronics last night, 54.99 with shipping. half what I paid at BB so it goes back to BB.

Thank you - I'll order my right now

EDIT: One last question - I read that there is a version A and version B of this headset. Is that true, and if so, how do I know which version I'm ordering?
post #44 of 235
^^...there you got me..Just looked and it seems any H700 is B version but I could be wrong. The one I currently have from BB is B. One from etronics looks identical and am guessing it is B.

Good luck

Ok - I might wait to see if the one you get from etronics is version B. In the meantime, are there any other headsets that meet my specifications listed above?

Thanks

I just got a Bluespoon AX2 from Amazon for $28 and free two day shipping. It works great and it is really small and comfortable
post #48 of 235
Paltronics Explorer 320 worked great for me.
post #49 of 235
OK - I really want to get a Bluetooth headset for my PS3, but I have a few questions.

Are there any health risks of using a Bluetooth headset? I mean, it's right next to your head and it's transmitting radiation waves. I'm afraid it could cause brain damage or something. Any thoughts?

And if Bluetooth is in fact dangerous in any way, I would assume that wired is the way to go - right? So, in regard to a USB headset for the PS3, I would need one that has around a 12ft cord. Does anyone know of a good USB headset that would work on the PS3 and has a long cord?

Thanks

That's amazingly cheap for a bluetooth headset. I probably would have bought that one instead of the $37 H700 that I bought. I don't need anything extra fancy because there really isn't that much use of a BT headset with the ps3 at the moment but I guess I can use it sometimes for my cell.

I think ps2 usb headsets are ok but wouldn't it suck to have everything wireless and have a 12' long cable all over the place?

I agree with you, but my mom is freaking out over the fact that it's bluetooth and it could cause damage. So I have to buy a USB headset. What's the best one available?

My bad, I meant to type ps2 usb not ps3. I don't know of any official ps3 headsets and I don't know which is best for the ps2. If you can find one for a good price buy it. I dont know which brands but I had a few headsets for ps2 and they were all the same to me.

One key factor that everyone is forgetting about particularly when talking about the cheaper blue tooth headsets is noise cancellation. If you and others don't have it, then games you play are going to pick up a lot of the game noise. You have to then have your sound system turned down lower than normal, because the mic keeps activating. If you turn down the mic outgoing sensitivity then people can barely hear you. I have a fairly decent Home Theatre sound system and even with the blue tooth with noise cancellation, I have to turn it down about 25% of what I would normally have. Some people's mics are constantly engaging while I have played Resistance and you can tell it is the noise of guns and explosions. You then hear it on your headset. If you can get a blue tooth for $25-$35 dollars, then I suggest for $10 more get a noise cancelling blue tooth. It will make the experience better for you and all of us.

ok, i dont know anything about bluetooth but i need a headset for ps3.

i used to have a 360 and the headset that came with it worked good, but it was wired.

im looking at all the headsets recommended here and they appear to be for just one ear. is there such a thing as a bluetooth headset for both ears? it seems to me it would be better.

anything like that exist? or should i just be looking at the single ear thingies

There is a blue tooth stereo headset. I don't know if it would do both the game sound and be able to communicate with others. I know it can do both, but I am wondering if it would work for Resistance. I am going to look into this more myself. Has me thinking.

i was told only bluetooth sets v 2.0 would work by sony.
post #58 of 235
I was reading on ps3 forums that the motorola h500 was very popular for ps3.

then in todays paper i seen that office depot had it on sale for 39.99, $20 off.

i went and looked at it. i asked about it and was told it didnt have noise cancellation so i didnt get it. because i remember reading here that i should get one with that.

so i still dont know what to get. isnt sony going to release one for the ps3 or what? i could sure use one right now
post #59 of 235
This is the set i'm getting for my LG VX8600 phone. Well worth the $75 - $120 price tag if it works with the PS3.

yes bluetooth is dangerous - you will suffer brain damage as a result. try not to use one for more than 3 seconds at a time.

motorola makes money by defending class action lawsuits now.
