15 replies 15323 views Edited Dec 8, 2011

I just bought this "Official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset 7.1" and I can not make it work, andhave tried everything!

Can someone show me a video? Tutorial or a fact, without this talk of being Plugin Play?

Bro, it's not hard.

  1. Charge it on your PC with the USB cable.
  2. When it's fully charged, connect the dongle to the PS3.
  3. Press the left side of the headset for about two seconds, until you hear a beep.

That's it. The PS3 will auto-detect the dongle, and the headset will work right away. Easy as pie. I got it to work right of the box on the first try.

Did you adjust the volume slider on the side?

If I'm not mistaken, plug in the dongle, turn on your ps3 and hold down the power button on the headphones. Hold it down longer than you would for normal power. I believe you still have to put it in pairing mode ( I know its not BT) by holding it down and then they should work. This is my second pair due to me finding them on sale, so I took back my 99.99 pair and got them back for 74.99. I remember just turning them on and they didn't work so I powered them off held down the power button for a substantial amount of time and voila' also...double check your audio device settings in accessories to make sure your ouput is set to stereo headphones. It might no show up at first as for me but just keep messing with it it will finally show up.

I believe there is a reset button on the dongle.  Check the manual, it should mention it there.  To restart the process just turn it off and unplug the dongle then try again.
