NVM, mystery solved. Pulse appears to be quite decent headset. Smiley Happy

i know that usb pc headsets work on the PS3 cuz my friend uses his Diablo III headsets by Steelseries for the PS3. Does anyone know any good 50 mm driver headsets? I don't care if they're surround sound or not.

I have an Astro A40, headset used by many MLG CoD players and it's a beast. 10x better than any Turtle Beach I've had

Has anybody here used the 2013 edition Astro A40's? There are a lot of furious customers on the Astro boards who are not getting anywhere with the company. I guess the sound quality us even better than before but they are complaining about muffled voice from the headset. I was just wondering if everybody was having this problem or if it was only certain ones. I want to get these bad however I'm just wondering if I should go with the 2012 model instead.

I have no clue, I got mine last year and it works great...I mute everyone anyway. Best thing to me is the noise cancelation so I can actually here exactly where people are walking at on CoD. I haven't heard about the 2013 models tho, I'll have to look into that.

Apparently there are a couple of issues. One issue is muffled voice from the mic. The other issue people are claiming is a hissing noise due to the firmware update the other day for the new mix amp pro. Some people claim pushing their mic in further fixes their problem for a while. Others claim the USB cable is too cheap and swapping it with something like the PS3 one fixes the problem. I want the 2013 model really bad for the mix amp pro not to mention the wires plug into your headset instead of being built in like the older models. These issues are supposed to be for the 2013 model only. I just hope its an isolated issue and is not a defect with every one.

They claim the company is not helping them when they file support claims and that Astro was recently bought by Skullcandy which could be why.

I would recommend trying the pulse elite headset made by sony. I've had the px11's astro's but i've loved my pulse by far. It does support 7.1 virtual surround sound and also does have base impacting sound. with loaded presets for gaming-video-music

I have heard that the best bet is to buy a pair of Siberia V2 and run them with the Astro mix amp.
