Agreed........... A Rumble Pak for the head,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony PlayStation 3 Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset (PS3) (Accessory)
A year or so after purchasing the first incarnation of the Sony Wireless Stereo Headset (PS3) last year from Gamestop in America as they were completely sold out in the UK (which I found really,really comfortable) i received a newsletter advertising these badboys, I was some what confused as to the difference between these and the Elite Edition, i was informed it had something to do with Mac compatability....so with pc I ordered immediately, After receipt, these were my findings.
Firstly the issue of comfort.....I found this headset slightly uncomfortable on the ear as the "ear cups" are slightly smaller than its predecessor. i admit that my head size is bigger than average, but as I mentioned before, the previous model are so comfortable, I hardly felt them on my head, wheras with these I'm fidgeting with these more to aid comfort. People with average sized heads may not have these issues at all, however this "con" must be addressed for the "big-headed" among us
Secondly the issue of sound quality.....admittedly I was sold on the bass boost feature prior to ordering......On receipt, my ears were due for a treat. As a now converted shoot em up gamer, I was pleased with the varied settings of racing/fighting/shooter/music/game. the bassboost has to be applied with caution as with the slightest bass on music/dialogue in game and/or chat will amplify it greatly and will become a nuisance, lending the question "why did I buy these?"......have faith and patience....and once tailored to your individual taste, the headset sounds awesome.
Buttons and switches are totally different from the previous version, but its simply a matter of getting used to.
Another "pro" is that it has a headphone jack for easy connectivity to audio devices etc. however if like me you only use these for gaming, its irrelevant, still it serves as a handy option just incase......there's no charging cable included, assuming that we already have at least one in our posession
I use BOTH headsets, I play on one, while the other is on charge via PS3/PC. If money's no issue, and your headsize is average buy these, if on the otherhand money's tight and youre not that bothered about the extra specs, get the first version, they are good too, they must be as Sony havent discontinued them and thats a good sign. both a worthy addition to your gaming set-up
