    hi there,
    i really want to buy a ps3 headset that makes all the sound go to the earphone and not just the voice like this one:http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?q=turtle+beach+ps3&hl=en&biw=1440&bih=785&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=12615576480954363941&sa=X&ei=deWlTaOBLYvF8QOelL25Dw&ved=0CGMQ8wIwAQ#

    but they're way too expensive are there any cheaper alternatives?
    thanks

    Any Bluetooth headset should work. Have a look on Amazon for a huge selection.

    Doesn't the PS3 have an option to redirect full audio through a Bluetooth headset?

    Anywhere you think of me.
    I woundn't recommend buying the official ps3 headset as i bought a couple (for me and friends) of them and they either stopped working or stopped working properly and we only had them for a couple of months now. The quality was really good though as i had a motorola headset before i started using the ps3 headset (i'm back to the motorola now) and the ps3 headset was better in every aspect. You should do a little research though, before you buy. I don't think everyone headset out on the market now supports the ps3.

    In such cases, I use my normal headphones and just plug it in the headphone jack on the side of the TV/monitor.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....can't really help you much if that's the case. If the headphones jack isn't working, i don't really know anyway around it other than using a theater system and then plugging you headphones into the theater system. maybe someone else has a better alternative.

    There's a dirty alternative of using a series of adaptors... but that would require at least 3 adaptors and one extra cable I think.

    yeah, just googled that, i can use the av cable and then convert the L and R audio to one female 3.5mm jack to plug the headphones, i think, or am i wrong?

    The L R audio adapter you refer to is almost always turned into a male 3.5mm jack, so you'd need a female-female jack coupler too for your headphones.

    That's the dirty alternative (and what I've done with Xbox 360). I don't know how effective it is, but it should work.

    well i have the turtlebeach px21 and it's definitely worth it for me, especially being able to control the in-game audio and the chatting audio separately, and being able to mute the adjustable mic

    also has some really good audio quality and fits very nice (although my ears do get sore after multiple hours if they are pressed against the ear cuffs)

    yeah, but i don't think spending £50 on audio is at all worth it for me
