They need to flip that 9 back upside down, or I need to trip into a pile of money. I'd be ok with either. The ball is in your court Amazon....

$80 at buy.com, not nearly the $35 off from amazon, but still better than msrp.

Sony Wireless 7.1 Stereo PS3 Headset $65 Amazon Pre Order

From Garrison01:

Good decent price for headset - regular retail price normally $80-120 at Best Buy, Walmart, and many mid level retailers.
Do not know what the physical weaknesses are though. Ear Cup design should be bigger and more comfortable than the Turtle Beach, Trittons, and Astros. Competition for comfort would be from Razer, Steelseries, and Alien Tactx headsets.
I believe the headset will be above average on Bass sound but below average on basic communication features.
You may have to buy additional adapters to use on whatever system you will use to hear with these - such as a usb dongle (soundcard, change mic/speaker settings, modify sound settings) or adapter jack (component, small/large stereo jack, optical line). This all depends on what use or addition you add such as the Astro Mix Amp or the DX Surround by Turtle Beach.

Overall a mid priced Audio non-game headset. I just hope the wiring is better than Plantronics, Logitechs and the Tritton 180s.

For $20, I get wireless headphones from "As seen on TV" :lol:

Just googled "My Zone Headphones." Funny how the guy on the commercial with the lawnmower can hear it from 100 feet away.

You are Tanga.

Its $19.99 + $6.99 shipping and handling + $4.99 handling fee for the 2nd pair - so how much are you really paying??? $32 at least if not more with the tax.

You can buy 2 from ebay from the link for $28. The seller will even do $25 or less if you send him the money directly from pay pal.

Ugh, I totally never saw this deal until just today, even though I was planning on getting them for months but I just remember trying to pre order them way back on amazon and they weren't up for pre order back then. Now I'm reading all these topics about then being so cheap and I feel like an idiot. If anyone is buying a second headset or gets one and doesn't really want it I'll buy it for the $65 and shipping.

Very cool. I'm excited to get mine. This may be a dumb question, but I haven't been able to find an answer. Will these work with mac? Right now for recording podcasts and the like I use my PX21s, but I plan on giving those to a friend who recently got a PS3 after I receive this set.

Any ideas?

Anyone know if this will work on PC? I've been trying to decide whether or not to keep my preorder.

For some reason I thought this was Bluetooth and the USB dongle was a bluetooth transmitter/receiver for PC :)

Amazon's listing mentions it works for PC and Mac, but Sony's website does not mention anything about it working with a PC/Mac.

I took a screenshot of the Amazon listing, so if it turns out the headset doesn't work on PC I wont have any trouble returning it for full credit since it would be an error on their end. I am mainly buying this to use with my PC games.

People who got this need to put some replies here and let us know the over all sound quality and usage. Is it decent for $65? How long the battery last? I am assuming its long as all the other PS3 Accessories.
