    Or you can go with the Turtle Beach Option.

    I will warn you that if you do get a pair of turtle beach headphones BUY INSURANCE.

    Those types like to snap when your putting them on your head/taking them off.

    The little joint that swivels on the ear cup attached to the head piece likes to break unexpectedly even if you take great care of them. (Ask peter)

    Luckily mine haven't broken yet but I won't be surprised when they do.

    Thanks for giving me a starting point cause i didnt have clue and he did want turtle beach.

    I highly reccommend these for their sound quality and that they're sony-made. I own a pair and I use them on my computer too

    My only flaw with them is the 8 hour battery life, but makes it up with really good virtual surround sound

    +1 Definitely do buy Insurance that's what happen to mine, my right ear cup broke though I wasn't really expecting much from them I just wanted a cheap replacement since my Razer Headset broke as well.

    Now I have no headset though I will buy myself a Megalodon in due time.

    A fairly cheap and useful headset would be the Microsoft LifeChat 3000, It is cheap. I bought it for 40 dollars and is compatible with the PS3, XBOX and PC.

    Will add another suggestion to the pot.

    Logitech makes decent headsets too, but most styles are on-ear, and can get uncomfortable after long sessions

    but they are on the cheaper side.

    Does he prefer sound/voice quality over comfort, or vice versa?

    Wireless options are good too, but don't seem like they're all that great most times.

    I had THESE ones for a while, and they were comfy, till the muff(?) part started wearing off.

    Mind you I used them a lot.

    @purplehaze, the logitech site has that second option on your list for half-price right now

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that model was durable as fuck. Just remembered that mine got smashed (the microphone mute/unmute and volume control) and I had super glued it back together, and it still held fast. while that may have been a stroke of luck, it lasted for a few months like that.

    EDITx2: this option however, is USB. not sure if a PS3 supports that or not, kinda got lost in discussion.

    My left ear broke off after about 6 months, super glue and vwala problem solved since then.

    PS3 uses uses USB only to my understanding.
  13. Nov 29, 2010
    Yes, PS3 uses USB slots, however not all products may be compatible with them. Be sure to talk to the clerk before buying.

    My biggest recommendation still is the Sony-made 5.1 Virtual Surround headphones since they are native to the ps3, They even have their own little HUD in the console as you play so you can check battery life, volume and toggle surround sound, it has a retractable mic and two volume sliders to mute voice so you can enjoy the game, and the game volume itself. The sound quality is great and it churns out good bass.

    My only flaw with them is that they get a little uncomfortable after extended use and their battery life isn't the greatest, they are also plug and play just like the ps3 controllers.
