As far as I know there haven’t been any complaints about the Sony’s official PS3 headset being too bulky, but I suspect Sony figured it needed some slimming down. Not only is the headset of a smaller form factor, it is also getting some upgrades that are now standard with most bluetooth headsets. The price will still remain the same, at $50. More Details after the break.
I haven’t had experience with the original headset myself, but I have heard many good things about the sound quality and it seems that it will only get better with this iteration. The new model has built-in noise cancellation. It also sports a dedicated mute button, dual-microphone design, and its charging station doubles as a desktop microphone. It also boasts improved mobile phone compatibility, including three-way calling, call waiting, and six hours of talk time when fully charged.
So if you are in need of a new headset or haven’t purchased another type already then perhaps this 30% smaller version would appeal to you with its improved features. It should be available at retailers before the end of November.
