PS3 wireless stereo headset after 4.10 update is horrible

177 Replies 6,166 Views Created 08-02-2012

I noticed a few people complaining around the internet today after the 4.10 update and what its done to the wireless stereo headset.

 

People were saying you could now hear your own voice in the headset and that it seems to be quite loud. Because of that you now can't hear the game sound effects as well as you could and you also hear your own voice on top of other people in the online chat you are having.

 

I just tried it myself and its horrible.

 

I paid £90 for this headset from Game so I could game in peace. The headset covering your full ears used to really shut out every other sound around you so there was no distractions. I couldn't even hear the phone ring next to me when I'm using them. Well worth the money I thought.

 

4.10 comes along and now the microphone is picking up everything and playing it back to your ears. I now hear a load of static and I could even hear the washing machine from the kitchen being played back to me. Unbelievable.

 

I know this was a deliberate addition to the firmware because the headset does such a good job of blocking out sound, you weren't aware of how loud you were talking into the mic. I can see why they added it, but its something I don't want and there should be an option to disable it.

 

This is a priority that needs fixed ASAP otherwise Game or Sony will need to refund me because the headset is no longer fit for purpose for me personally.

The next firmware update is going to include a 'fix' for this problem, this update is going to be released very soon.

The same happens to me since the last update I can't pair the wireless stereo headset CECHYA 0080.

In the Ps3 support for Latin America (now I live in Uruguay), said it's a region problem because I bought the headset in UK., and my PS3 it's from EE.UU, but when I bought the headset nothing said about regions to use it, and I bought it on march 2012 and works perfect since the update 4.21 in July.

After the update it works for 2 o 3  days , then it doesn't work but I could pair it and worked for 2 or 3 days, and about 2 weeks ago I had again the problem and was impossible pair it again since now.

I make the reset like manual says and nothing happen, the headset its totally charged, the adaptor flashes the blue light like it's in pairing mode, but I can't pair it.

Please I need a solution as soon as possible.

Why should we "shut up", SyncroUK? Don't we have a right to discuss it?

Same problem here. Plus sometimes some INSANELY STUPID & ANNOYING sounds, like interferences appear. Sometimes the whole Device is completely shut down, and can't hear anything (rarely). Sony please fix those problems. It's so annoying! And I didn't pay 100 dolla-dollaz to experience this.

Hi gang , dont know if this helps but i used to have pairing problems. I finally found out that if you switch off the ps3 with the headset turned on it would freak out the next time i tried to use it , i would then have to remove the dongle and switch off , put dongle back in with headphones off  , switch on ps3 , switch on headphones and it would work. But the tip is to switch off the headphones before turning off the ps3 , its a hard habit to get into and i still muck it up :-)!!!!

 

Also has anyone got any problems with your mic being very quiet on bf3 etc , i had to really shout to be heard last night , i had the voice slider up almost to the top and the main volume slider almost at the bottom. (my mic was flipped out).

much love everyone!
