Good deal for anyone looking to buy the Pulse or the original wireless headset: Best Buy Canada is offering the Pulse for $89 or the Wireless Stereo Headset for $49.99 with purchase of The Last of Us.

Having owned both headsets, I would definitly go with the Pulse if you're willing to pay a little more.

In games like God of War and Uncharted they have in the audio option several choices.

So if i'm a using the official headset with virtual 7.1 on, should I choose the option "headphones" or  "7.1 Surround sound" ?

Thanks.

I've been wondering this too. Typically, I stick with "headphones" because "7.1" is probably suited for actual sound systems, but I'm not sure.

You have to match the headphone setting with the game setting. So, if you have VSS turned on (from the headphones), then choose surround sound from the game settings.

 

If it's off from the headphones, choose 'stereo headphones' in game settings.

 

I personally turn off VSS and use stereo, because that's what they are.

 

If you're not sure what I'm talking about when I say turn VSS on/off from the headphones, I'm talking about the button with 'VSS on/off' above it. If you hold it, it changes the VSS setting, when using the headphones on a PS3. I realized this later than I'd like to admit, but I don't use it anyways so it's alright.

 

(I use the Pulse, so my descriptions are based on that, but I've heard the actual sound quality is the same in both. This may not apply to the first official headset.)

Why buy earphones when you can just turn up the volume on your TV/ surround system/ what-have-you?

^Not everyone can afford surround sound, so headphones are a cost-effective way of getting better audio.

Not only can I not afford surroundsound, my neighbors probably wouldn't appreciate my 3am DEATH TO CLICKER RAMPAGE in full 7.1
