    PS3 Headphones??

    Do decent headphones exist that work with the PS3?

    I have a complicated set up so they need to be able to plug directly into the PS3 while the video comes through HDMI (i can explain the set up if helpful) - so possibly USB??

    If these headsets also incorporate a mic for ingame chat that would be great, but not important

    Let me know if you know of any and also feedback if they are any good!!

    Cheers

    Sorry forgot to mention that ALL sound must be going through the headphones / headset, not just the chat - is this possible?

    Does your tv not have a headphone socket?

    My TV does, but i will be using the headset when i have my PS3 plugged into my HP 21" PC monitor via HDMI when my g/f is watching TV, and my monitor does NOT have a headphone socket, hence the need for direct connection to my PS3

    Plug in a composite cable (Yellow, red, white) then a composite female to female cable, then one of these:

    Then you should be ready to go.

    Good shout! :thumbsup:

    Will it still output video over HDMI if i have the composite cable plugged in for the headphones (in the multiout port)?

    Headset - Surround Sound + Mic / Optical Cable plugs straight into the back of your PS3.

    I got a set and they are awsome for FPS, especially COD can hear where people are coming a mile off.

    Must say abit pricey new though...but for me it was well worth the buy as im abit of a nerd when it comes to gaming.

    EDIT: Basically you can buy any headset that has an Optical Cable Cabability , Just plugs straight in the back of the PS3.
