Within the “Settings” menu, press X on “Accessory Settings.”
Press X on the icon labeled: “Register Bluetooth® Device.”
Scroll down and press X on the icon labeled: “Manage Bluetooth Devices”
Select “Yes” to register a new device (if this is the first time registering a Bluetooth device) then press X on “Start Scanning”
Now prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by holding down the call button for about 8 seconds (Make sure the USB charging cable is unplugged and the headset is turned off before you try and get the headset into pairing mode). The LED will start flashing Blue and Red.
Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will recognize all Bluetooth devices within range.

Pretty dankI mean for when it's made the qualities good and it definitely feels sturdy and durable my only real complaint is when it's hooked up to the phone I can only send out call Audio so like no music or anything other than that it's great does everything you really needed to

Worst Headset I've OwnedLuckily my friend gave me this headset. It has terrible sound quality, and is the most uncomfortable headset I have ever owned. Seriously! And after about a month and a half it wouldn't sync with my PS3. This thing is total garbage. I gave the performance a 3 because it's barely above decent, when it actually works. If you're thinking about buying this, re-consider it. It's a waste of money.

Not bad but not perfectWell i dindt actually have to pay for it i just used my points on it so i didn't have to go out and pay 60 bucks for 1 and for getting it free i cant complain yes sometimes the audio is a little bit fuzzy in some cases but for some reason it gets better in a few minutes and i dont know if it has to do with the thing getting full connection or not. the design is ok but after a while of it being on your ear it makes your ear ache.So all in all for just a little one that you dont spend a lot of money on expessially when you get it for free from points just to talk to friends it is pretty good.

wonderful but does not take fall damage!The headset itself is wonderful! it feels comfortable and it is every easy to setup if you read the instructions. I used this headset everyday until now which is where i droped it. it takes very little distance of a fall(about 3 feet) and it probably will break something inside it but it still is wonderful. i do recommend this to anyone else who is starting out or is low on money. i used it for about 8 months without any issues besides lossing the rubber ring that is for comfort inside your ear(i took it off and i forgot about it and lost it). even without that it was still comfortable. it is very light weight which is good for long gaming sessions. the battery life is expected to be 8 hours but on average it was 5 to 6 for me. which is still amazing. i plan on getting another one in a few weeks. so yes i recommend it. just to tell you the quality of the produt it is very decent. the people on the other end are very clear and everyone else can hear me well. the lights help you and inform you if the battery is about dead and it even has a beeping noise. i really like it and i am very glad i purchased this headset!

Good but a little overpricedA lot of people have said it's hard to setup/ hear others or talk to others. That's only because they really don't know how to use their gaming system. There's an in-depth instruction paper that describes everything from setup - to what each button or light means. And if you can't hear, Then you must go to the mic settings, same for others not hearing you. Very good product, mine only broke because of my dog stepping on it... =_=.
