I don't believe in paying $100 for surround headphones, wake us up when this is $50 or less...

You might want to add that this is the elite version to the title. There is also a non-elite version that retails for $100.

Never ever ever. You will never get these headsets.

Not quite never ever. GS mistakenly put the standard set on sale for $50 for about 6 hours during the 2011 Play Days. But no one's put either official set on sale for more than 25% off on purpose, that I can recall ...

Maybe used or refurb, but it seems very unlikely you would ever find these that low for new.

These are actually excellent headsets and should be worth the money if you actually care about this kind of product. Also, I want to make sure you understand these are wireless. $50 for wired surround sounds like a reasonable price, but wireless is going to be more expensive.

There are also some near PS3 integration features that make these stand out. Also, these can be used as wired headphones too, which makes them that much better. Similar headphones from Turtle Beach, etc. that don't include some of the extra features tend to be a lot more money. I have a pair of X41's for my Xbox and I prefer the Sony headphones to the X41's for multiple reasons.

I'm pretty sure they will. I am actually going today to try the 30 day price guarantee since I got these a couple of weeks ago.

For anyone interested, try this promo code. It expires today for 10% off. MEMKBOUDEC12

I am not sure if its universal, but I am not going to use it. Hope it works for someone.

Also, with the Shoprunner promo going on, this deal is great!

Are these Bluetooth or do they require a USB dongle?

I'll try pricematching this at BB later, not sure if that was just the holiday special pricematching though. I have BB credit to burn anyway

Spend this much for headphones, it should work on more than one console.

Not Bluetooth, needs the dongle for PS3 and PC.

I got these last month (pricematched at Best Buy with Office Max price) and couldn't be happier.

They are excellent for iPhone use also.

These headsets are woth every penny. Just as good as the beats by Dre sets if you choose to use them with other devices other than the ps3.

This is what I'm wondering as well if best buy will still price match after holidays

Should work according to bb website

So do you just use them wired with the iPhone? Wired with Vita?

How do you use it with your ipod if the headset can't use bluetooth? :/ and seems like a great deal :) thanks op!

Edit: Nevermind, they include a cable :p

Is this going to be the msrp for the headset or just a temporary drop?

You just plug the usb to a power source and the cable to your speakers, tv or whatever you want to hear and you can listen to the audio without problems. Playing Forza Horizon and the Witcher 2 with this makes it pretty intense

I got these for my brother for Christmas at Best Buy for $129.99, and they are definitely worth the $99 price tag. It uses a USB dongle for the Wireless and then you get a wired audio jack cable to use it with any other device that uses the audio jack. However, with the audio jack, I'm not sure if you can use the Mic or not, I'm betting that you can't.

Either way, these thing sound incredible. The bass is pretty powerful too, but I wouldn't recommend it for listening to regular music, sometimes it's way off.
