I recommend getting a headset. Most headsets pick up your audio noise, so you need to lower your audio, but the Eye mic picks it up even more. Also, with a headset you can hear the other players through your earpiece, but when using the Eye the other players are heard through your audio system speakers and it is much more difficult to hear what they are saying when you are already turning your volume down.

So if I were to use regular old headphones with my audio system and the eye as a microphone (or maybe any usb microphone?), I could hear the game audio and the voice chat on my headphones and could chat via the eye/microphone? This sounds like an ideal solution for me since I almost always use headphones when gaming at night but can't wear a bluetooth headset and headphones at the same time (since I only have 2 ears).

Yep - that would work. With the headphones you can crank up the volume without worrying about the mic picking it up. Good idea!

Come to think of it, I could probably clip my bluetooth headset onto the headphones somehow. If it's on the mic part I'm using, it won't matter that the speaker isn't against my ear. I'll have to do some experimenting tonight...

That's a pretty cool idea. What do you think works better, the BT headset as a mic or the Playstation Eye?
I mean if you're using headphones, it shouldn't matter, right?
