can confirm they work with 360. also, these fit rather tight, and i have a shaved head so they hurt lol. i ended up returning mine and getting the older ones instead.

Oh good, that was enough to get me to stop agonizing over the choice.

You can also get $20 off if you sign up for vme visa payment option. Only good for new customers. Makes them $79.99. Edit, Nevermind it's only valid on purchases of $199 or more.

i would have bought this immediately if it was like a week ago. Why put this deal out after christmas!? I really want these. I'll wait for another deal on this later on. Thanks OP.

Well they are not that bad after they get a little loose, but if you normally do long gaming sessions they might be a pain if you wear glasses. Probably the pressure added to the temples

I was denied a price match at Best Buy with the manager saying they only price match Amazon.com and no other websites (only retail stores) and only sometimes for Amazon. This seems pretty bogus since I am pretty sure I have PM Newegg at Best Buy before. Also, I didn't go to the location I normally go to. I thought the price match policy was pretty universal now, though. Didn't Best Buy make some big announcement about it a month or two ago?

After checking, looks like the BB/newegg.com price matching was only during the holiday special (til Dec 24).

best buy is currently doing a promotion where they match online ompetitor prices (inlcuding newegg). just refer the best buy manager to the bottom of this best buy webpage:

http://www.bestbuy.c...cat204400050011

"Valid for purchases made between October 7, 2012 - November 17, 2012 and November 27, 2012 - January 31, 2013."

lol yeah i wear glasses too, so i guess that adds to the problem. however the old ones still feel very comfortable even with glasses on- no 360 love though.

Couldn't you just return them? They have the promotion were you can return anything bought after some date until Jan 24th

They are already opened and used (I may not even have the box anymore). I called the Best Buy I normally go to and was told they do PM Newegg (however, I did not ask about this specific deal), so I will probably just go there and try again. I was just surprised Newegg is not a universally accepted price match for all of the stores (maybe it is and the manager was uninformed or difficult).

no go for me. I had to wait for Best Buy to open on the west coast, and by the time it did they were sold out. I tried telling them that if this had been an online order I could've called on the phone even though the store wasn't open in CA and PM'd. They said you can only PM in-store lol. Then they told me I would've had to return the $20 GC I got during the promo cuz it was double dipping eventhough I had PM'd officemax or whatever at the time and still got the GC. Moral of the story always order online with in-store pickup.

I missed out on this deal and $100 was the price I was considering getting this too

They don't work wirelessly with Vita (since there is no bluetooth). They will work wirelessly with the PS3 and PC/Mac, but you have to plug in the USB dongle.

I just successfully price matched this at my local best buy, thanks op!

On a side note, this best buy is usually very difficult to get price matches at, so I wasn't expecting it to work...I took the headset to the front check out, asked the cashier if they match newegg, he said yes, showed him the item on my phone, and it was that easy. Used my two Christmas gift cards, and only had to pay the 6.95 tax out of pocket! Charging the headphones now ....

u use the provided cable (or any in/out audio cable) to hook up ur tv out to the headphone jack on the usb dongle. and ya, chat doesn't work, just the audio.

how did you get them to work for 360? I'm assuming chat doesnt work though right?

Would Bestbuy price match Newegg, even if Newegg's inventory on the Sony Elite Pulse headset is sold out? Any help is appreciated.

Bummer, I had the chance to order a pair earlier but my AWH Pulse Elite just arrived so I passed. Now after setting up the LN cans from AWH they won't pair with the wireless dongle for more than a minute or two. That's probably why they were returned in the first place...

Really wish I had just picked these up now.
