Sony Wireless Stereo 7.1 Surround Sound Headset Playstation 3 REVIEW
I thought the Sony Wireless Stereo 7.1 Surround Sound Playstation 3 headset was excellent for the price. Sony did a great job designing the look and feel of this set: when I wear it I feel like Optimus Prime from Transformers commanding my autobots in play, or wearing one of those soundproof headsets they have at the gun range. The sound quality is great, though there is some distortion when you raise it to the maximum levels. Also, you don’t have many options in controlling the sound except for adjusting the volume of the headset, adjusting the volume of the game (background noises vs chat), and turning on and off the 7.1 virtual surround sound.
I recommend to keep the virtual surround sound on when you are playing because it really makes a difference. I tested the headset with regular netflix and dvds and they worked great, not the best sound mind you, but still pretty decent. It’s really simple and easy to use: plug in the usb dongle and turn on the headset and you’re ready to go.
Final conclusion: for the price of under $100 for this wireless headset, I would definitely recommend getting it for the sound quality, convenience, and comfort!
