Top 5 PS3 Headsets

When it comes to playing games on a PS3, it is vital to have good sound. Not only will this enhance the enjoyment of the PS3 game but also the game itself. Having good surround sound will improve a player's game. In addition, sometimes it isn't possible to play with the sound up loud – particularly in public living spaces. The use of a headset in these scenarios will be required. This guide offers advice on how to buy a PS3 headset.

What to Look For In A PS3 Headset

Not all headsets are the same. The range of functionality varies and it is important to take this into consideration when looking to make a purchase.

Wireless or Wired

The basic types of headsets are either wireless or wired. Basically speaking this means, depending on the type, the headset will either be connected to the PS3 via a cable or use a wireless connection like broadband.


Similar to a wireless headset, a Bluetooth headset works via a radio wave. It is smaller than a traditional headset and can often break up if worn too far away from the device or near other radio waves.


The design of the headsets will affect the comfort of the wearer. Some headsets come with additional padding, whilst others are more basic in their comfort.


There are many different brands available on the current market. These brands include; Sony, Turtle Beach, Triton and Plantronics. When it comes to brands, the best advice is to look for a headset that best suits your needs rather than base it off the brand.
