4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but by no means perfect, 5 Feb 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PS3 Officially Licensed 4Gamers Gaming Headset - COM PLAY PRO (Accessory)
I needed some headphones for when I'm play COD and the wireless option I wanted was nearly four times the price, so I opted for these.

They're a good pair of headphones, but using them can be a bit of hassle intitally.

The most important thing about them is that although they are powered by the USB port on your PS3, they get the sound from the composite sound connections. I ( like most people I imagine ) use the PS3 on an HDMI connection, so to use these you have to also connect your composite cable, plug in the two stereo pass-thru connectors and then change your audio settings on the PS3 to allow sound out through composite. Not a problem if you only use your PS3 for gaming and always wear headphones, but if you switch between games and video playback, to get the sound back to your TV/Surround system, you have to go back into the audio settings to change the output. If you're using the composite cable only, then this won't affect you.

Other niggles are the ear pads don't seem deep enough for me ( and I'm no 'wingnut' ), so they sit on the ears, not over them. There is also no L or R marked on them, although you soon learn which is which. The seperate chat volume doesn't seem to work on COD either

It sounds like I'm being negative, but they are good headphones given the price and seem well built. If you don't mind swapping settings from time to time, depending on your usage, then these will be fine. If that will bother you, it's best to look elsewhere.
