Ok my first post, unfortunately in question form... Now I could well be missing some thing, but how do you charge them? I think I have every thing that should be in the box, but I can't work out how to charge them? Nothing mentioned in the instructions other than they NEED charging for 3 hours before use?

 

Thanks for any help in advance,

 

Alex

This will be interesting as No ones admitted to buying these yet on this forum.

People are buying the Wired version only.

Ive seen one review on Youtube and he completely skips over charging. if i remember correctly  

Edit = Dam can find the review any more...

Not sure if the link will work, but here are the instructions for the set up etc and I did say I may have missed some thing, but to what eludes me, it's the same as in the booklet that came with it.

Yep thats what I was reading. 

They have completely missed out the Wireless headset and only done the base station.

so you have a left over charger but no socket to plug it in to on headset.

The only bit that's spare is the headset to Xbox360 controller link cable, every thing else is connected, there just doesn't seem to be anything left for charging? I've sent gioteck and the ebay shop a message asking about it, but I though I'd raise the question here as well...

You should be able to charge it up with the same cable you use for your ps3 pad.

I feel such a complete and utter idiot so please flame away :xCry:!!! I've found the charging cable, it was in my PS3 box from when I was getting the AV multi out cable... Good start to the forum (or not) I do apologise for wasting your time  :Stupid: 

 

On the plus side, atleast I'm a member who now owns a pair (of headphones) so may do a little review, when they're charged lol!

 

Sincere apologies,

 

Alex

 

ps Told you I may have missed some thing

Just had a reply from gioteck customer services after I told them I had found the cable needed and I told them to have a laugh at my expence.

 

"Hello
Thanks for getting back to us to let us know all is OK. We are pleased to have been of assistance and we agree that the manual is not helpful for this product and it is not obvious what needs to be done. So we promise you we are not laughing and you haven't wasted our time that's what we are here for."

 

They seem nice :xLol:

Now remember Turn down the TV as well no point having both TV and Headset audio.:Stupid:

 

Dont use mute unless the mute symbol on your TV turns it self off or It will get in the way of gameplay and remember to turn it back up after, dont want a "Ive got no audio from my TV post" 

 

USB charging can be done from ANY USB port does not need to be the PS3. Any Lap top / PC USB port will do.

Have fun 

 

PS when you watch films youll now hear audio,which  you will think you have never heard before but you did it was just not that loud..

The instructions are garbage!! gioteck's tech support even said it was awful and needs updating/replacing!, the USB jack cable is to charge the headset which connects to the DC socket on the headphone controller, you should make sure the headphones are connected to the control box while charging and charge for three hours. There should be a red led to indicate charging which when finished should go out. I charged mine for ever and the red light never went out, also the control box wouldn't switch on after either. The headset it self was very light, which was a bonus though.

 

The quality of sound I cannot comment on as they didn't work due to a faulty control box, but the build quality of the control box is absolute rubbish, very cheap thin plastic, the switches feel as though they are from a cheap toy. I know they are supposed to be light weight as they clip to your clothes, but I've seen better quality plastic on packaging that gets thrown away!

 

I replaced mine with a 7.1 virtual surround sound Sony headset, I like them, not bothered about not been able to use the surround sound for blurays etc so they are spot on for me.

Iv done all the steps in the booklet. Except it doesn't specify the red and the white tv wires for hdmi users and was wondering wether I'd left something out? Maybe its a faulty set? Coz I can hear the mute beep and my voice when I change accesory settings?! Sooo confused :s
