    Okay, so Tax season is coming up, and I'm going to be buying a wireless headset for PS3. I have a STRICT budget of $150 including shipping, and I was wondering what my options are as far as that goes?

    The only companies I know are Turtle Beach (which are so goddamn overpriced) and Tritton which doesn't have wireless sets as far as I know.

    It needs to be Stereo, meaning ALL game sounds go through the headset. Sorry if I didnt make that clear enough.

    I need some help here, tempers!

    I'm thinking something a little less Bluetooth and a little more Stereo. I need something that won't wake my wife and kid up while I'm playing my PS3.

    You can make the output direct to the device instead of the TV speakers...

    I use a normal pair of stereo headphones connected to my TV, with a bluetooth headset taped on the side for voice chat. [​IMG] I have incoming voice chat to come through the TV instead of the bluetooth headset so that it comes into my stereo headphones along with the game sound.

    Regular headphones would work just fine except for the fact that I have two large clumsy dogs that would trip up any cord you put in front of them. I absolutely need the wireless + voice chat. A gaming headset if you will...you know like the ones Tritton puts out.

    EDIT: I found my set, thank for the help.

    Wireless headphones work really well. I have a pair from RCA that are great. My wife bought them for me at Wal-Mart. If you need communication on top of that, try to look into wireless skype-like headsets. Don't know who makes any, but that seems to be the best option.

    I have Bluetooth Headphones that work great.
    They have a built-in mic for voice-chat, and stereo speakers for playback.

    I use it with my phone for music(/phone calls), and for gaming on the ps3.
    Mine are Motorolla HT820's.
