PS3 Bluetooth MIC Query

[ Edited ]
6 Replies 723 Views edited 31-07-2010

I have just bought a PS3 mic for $55 at Dicksmith  - I have paired it up ok and it is working. i would like to know when you press the mute button is the red led circle (that is around the mute button) supposed to illuminate. I dont know if it is supposed to but mine isnt. I thought this would have been the case to indicate that it is muted.

 

I have checked and the mute function does work whilst playing. I just want to know in case I should return it.

 

It doesnt explain this in the manual.

 

Thanks

Leaving an LED on is a drain on the battery. That's why they only blink occasionally... to preserve battery power.

Re: PS3 Bluetooth MIC Query

I have a quick question about the bluetooth mic setup too. I have some Sony Bluetooth headphones that also have a mic in them, when I register them to the PS3 they work when I'm in the accessory/audio menu but then turn off as soon as I exit and just don't seem to work in anything. I was trying to use them in Home but no go.

I've selected the relevant bluetooth device and told it to use mic and also audio but I must be missing something.

Have I wrongly assumed that the PS3 would re-route all audio to the headphones? Is there something else I need to do?

I can normally work anything like this out but this time it's got me stumped.

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Only the headset channel will go to the bluetooth headset or headphones, not all audio.

Re: PS3 Bluetooth MIC Query

the red ring is to show its charging correctly as far as i can see, you can tell if its muted by the symbol that appears on screen and also it beeps at you every now and then when muted
