If you own a PlayStation 3 and you’re possibly thinking about buying yourself a new headset, you might be pleased to know that Sony has just unveiled the brand new official PS3 wireless stereo headset. The bad news however is the fact that the headset won’t be arriving until September.

As Anand Agarwal (product marketing manager, hardware) over on the blog.us.playstation.com website notes, the official PS3 wireless stereo headset – which has been priced up at $99.99 – features 7.1 virtual surround sound, enabling players to hear all minor in-game audio clues clearly.

The official PS3 headset has been designed with comfort in mind, making it ideal for those of you that spend hours at a time gaming. Connecting the wireless stereo headset with the PlayStation 3 has been made easy with the USB wireless adapter that comes included.

An accessible microphone mute and precise volume controls mean that players won’t ever have to interrupt their gameplay to fumble around for buttons. Thanks to the on-screen headset status updates, players can stay informed about the status of their battery and sound controls etc.

The official PS3 wireless stereo headset also features a retractable microphone, so users can tuck it away when they’re not using it. Do you like the look of the new PlayStation 3 headset?

    Yes,but I don’t feel like giving them a cent of my money right now. But if you buy a 3rd party’s headset even if it was before they came out with there’s, all they would do is just ban it anyway just like they did with there joysticks even tho they don’t have one that they make one.
