SONY Pulse - Not the best headset
Giancarlo D., Newegg
8 February 2014
Pros: -Hidden mic
Cons: To start off, I've had these headsets for about a year and they can break easily. They are not the most durable headset and my ear cups just fell off after 5 falls from 3-4 feet. This headset is also not good for shooters where you need to hear footsteps. I compared this to my Turtle Beach p11 ($60) and with the turtle beach, I could hear more clearly. Furthermore, they also get very loose after you wear them for about 8 months.
Pros: Good when they work, quickly replaced. There is a reset button not listed in the instruction sheet. It's a tiny pin hole on the "L" headphone (per Sony rep).
Cons: After two months the blue lights on the dongle and headphones blinked twice repeatedly indicating they were trying to "pair" but couldn't. Spent about 20 minutes on the phone w/Sony (good people). Mailed them back to Sony ($9.20) and received a new set six days later. Only been a week, but still working.
Pros: It was good while it lasted I guess the charger stopped charging the bass impact feature so now its like I have heaphones only for listening to music.... its weird one day it just stopped charging... idk the warranty is still there so I guess newegg will replace it
Summary: The headset itself seems to be of pretty solid construction but the USB dongle for wireless audio transmission seems to be made of cheaper materials. Audio is of okay quality, I am no audiophile but I have had my fair share of gaming headsets and good quality headphones and I can tell you it is just okay, not great. Don't be expecting to here those footsteps all that well for you FPS fans.
Summary: Very simple to use with the controls on the headset. Nice to have a hidden mic to they look like regular headphones and having a cord to be able to plug into other devices in a plus. The sound is good, even when just listening to music! However the bass boost was pointless for them to put in the headphones. As soon as you turn on the setting your headphones sound busted because the bass just makes a popping sound. Very irritating for someone who enjoys good bass sounds.
Summary: I purchased these as an upgrade to the original PS3 Wireless Headset. I found the sound has less bass with higher more pronounced mid range. Less favourable to the original and the phones themselves do not fit as tightly and insulating as the originals. They just look better. :( I have returned mine and remain very happy with the original set.
