I got it home and charged it up over three hours, it's a long time but that is due to the trickle charge through a usb cable. This is convenient in the long run as you can keep the cable with your PS3 and plug the headset in for a quick charge after a gaming session (as recommended in the instructions), doing this also means that the piece may not become completely devoid of charge and so shouldn't take 3 hrs to charge up in future.
The headset was a breeze to setup with my PS3. My PS3 is connected to the internet using wi-fi but there were no interference problems affecting my internet or my playstation network login.
There can be some sound interference, however, if the preferences are set correctly in the PS3 audio menu this can be drastically reduced, I have my audio levels at medium level 3, there is slight interference but I find this comforting as it is not enough to annoy but enough to let me know that the ear piece is functioning properly even when no-one is saying anything.
The design of the ear piece makes it comfortable to wear, I'm no stranger to head sets, I use a barracuda headset on my pc as well as having used others throughout the years including bluetooth headsets for my mobile phones and this is one of the more comfortable pieces I have experienced wearing, it can be worn for long periods without causing pain or discomfort.
My only gripe with this piece is that there is no way to check the charge level. The indicator will flash green if the charge is low or be at blue if it is not low but that is it.Read more ›
I was looking for a nice bluetooth headset to chat online with my friends. At first I was going for the Logitech Vantage headset, but they were out of stock on most of the e-shops. So I started looking for another headset and I bumped on this one.
I've seen every single review of this product on the web, and they were really divided into 2 groups (70 % good ratings, 30% bad ratings).
I must say I'm very impressed by this piece of equipment, I thought I bought something that wouldn't pair with my ps3, referring to the bad reviews, but I had no problems at all, really easy to pair and nice instructions !
Then about the static some people are complaining about, this doesn't annoy at all, really ! It's a nice indicator that reminds you if you're headset is recording your sound or not !
Although the headset looks very fragile and it looks like it can break every second, it doesn' ;D unless you smash it into your wall or something.
My friend's can hear me really good (I need to max the mic though), and I have no problem at all hearing them, really it works as it should be working.
I really recommend this headset, and I assure you, the good reviews are right about this product ;) and I'm very pleased to have this one as my headset.
I bought this not to use on the ps3 but on windows 7. Simple to do just download the WIDCOMM bluetooth software off the net, install, pair and away you go!
- cheap (cost)
- good quality speaker
- good quality mic (no complaints so far)
- rechargeable !!
- easy to set up
- not a perfect fit to the ear
- no adjustable earpiece, i.e. For smaller ears it cannot be adjusted, however there is another eat piece to swap between ears.
Also comes with charger cable and set up guide.
The build quality of the headset would explain why this costs half the price of the sony headset.. It feels cheap and i guess if you gave this to a child to use then it probably wouldn't last a week, However if it is solely for the use of an adult then with reasonable use it would last the test of time.
Using the item brings up a few other niggles...when actually using the device the audio and microphone are probably on par with any other typical bluetooth device so no complaints there..Its easy enough to mute the microphone with a push of the button same goes for the volume control.. Although the main problem i had was with the fit..Because of the lightness and the fact that the speaker part sits on your ear instead of inside it moves around a lot, therfore no quick head movements are reccommended. But saying that it is comfortable enough for a long period of use.
Battery usage is probably the same as any other, not really sure as when i'm not using it i have it on charge anyway so i can't say for sure how long it lasts on standby or continued use.
Altogether i'd have to say for the price you are getting a pretty good deal, It does what its suppose to, its comfortable and with reasonable care there shouldn't be any problems with breakage so all in all i'd have to recommend this product for anyone that doesn't want to spend to much money but are in need of a bluetooth head set for their PS3. It'll never match the quality of an official headset but it does come close..
