Sony's announced a new bluetooth headset for the PlayStation 3. It packs in a new sleek design alongside a couple of brand new features. In-game voice chat is about to get better.
"It offers a dual-microphone design, automatic pairing via USB cable with the PS3, in-game headset status indicator, an easily accessible microphone mute button, and a charging cradle which also functions as a desktop microphone. On top of all of that, it's the only device to offer High-Quality (HQ) mode which delivers crystal clear voice chat while gaming on the PS3," writes Sony product manager Anand Argarwal.
The device features a new glossy design and is roughly 30% smaller than the original package. It includes built-in noise cancellation for use on both the PlayStation 3 as well as mobile phones. It even features three-way-calling and call waiting on mobiles. In addition, the battery lasts a good six hours.
The new bluetooth headset will retail at the same price as the original, $49.99 MSRP.
