Not bad for $99.99.

PlayStation 3 owners who want booming sound without noise complaints from the neighbors will be in luck this September. That's when Sony will release the official wireless headset for the PlayStation 3, the latest officially sanctioned accessory for the gaming console.

$100 of PS3 sound--without the wires.

Priced at $99.99, the headset will sport 7.1 virtual surround sound and a retractable microphone as well as an easily accessible microphone mute button. Battery status and sound control will also be displayed onscreen via a headset status update.

The PS3 headset is the latest Sony-stamped peripheral for the PS3. The console also has a specially designed soundbar, which simulates surround sound with a built-in subwoofer. There's also a $50 PS3-branded Bluetooth wireless headset, which was bundled with SOCOM: Confrontation back in 2008.

Looks like a very good deal although at such a low price, I'm a little worried about the overall quality. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Too bad I already have Tritton AX Pro's. Then again with Sony's luck as of late they will probably be hexed by some other issue with their venture. I mean isn't the PSN down again?
