In 2008 Sony announced their official Bluetooth Headset for the Playstation 3 and now we have another one coming down the pipeline this month.
Just announced today, their new Bluetooth Headset(shown above) is going to be significantly better than the previous one. According to the Playstation Blog:
New features include a redesign, making it sleeker, high-gloss and more compact – 30% smaller than the original model. In addition, the Bluetooth Headset now has built-in noise cancellation for filtering out ambient noise when used with the PS3 system as well as your mobile phone. Gadget fiends take note – the new Bluetooth Headset isn’t just for gaming. The improved mobile phone feature support allows you to use features such as three-way calling and call waiting. And with nearly six hours of talk time, you can easily take the Bluetooth Headset with you straight from the living room to the streets.
That was always one of the coolest features of the Playstation 3 Headset; the ability to use it as a normal Bluetooth Headset with your phone. It also brings up the question as to why you have to use the official headset when you can get a cheaper one though.
The Official Playstation 3 Bluetooth Headset will set you back $49.99
