The best gaming headset for the PS3?

100 replies 41529 views Edited May 11, 2009

I was thinking about the getting the Sennheiser, but a lot of people are saying Astro and Turtle Beach are good. I just wanted some opinions on the best gaming headset for the PS3. I prefer 5.1 surround sound. But that doesn't mean I will dismiss stereo headsets. As long as the headset is worth the money. And preferably less than a 100 dollars. Thanks.

95% of the people who play COD4 use martyrdom If you're one of the 5% of people who doesn't need to die to get a kill, put this in your sig.

I've had lots of experience with Turtle Beach products and would recommend them.  Best bang for the buck.

While they're very expensive, the Astro A40 headset + mixamp is the best out there. I've had my A40s for about a year now, and its just been fantastic.

$249.99 for the headset + mixamp. The Mixamp is what makes the headset 5.1 stereo.

THis may be an old thread, But  check this out

http://charlessimpson.com/catalog/manhattan-professional-gaming-headset-171274-3694.html

 

30 dollars for a 5.1 headsetsounds WAY too good to be true, there are no reviews for these on the web, and I'm looking to see if they are compatible with the PS3. 

If they are legit, Im defineatly buying a pair amazon is selling them for 79.99 FYI
