My headset wont work on my PS3

8 Replies 5,963 Views Created 03-01-2012

I've recently got a PS3 and I tried using my old headset, which worked with my other PS3, but didn't work with this one, so I bought another one (Giotect EX-05), I've plugged it in completely right and everything but it still seems not to work, I watched a set up and they said I need to change "audio device settings", so when I went to try it wont change, it doesn't let me, it stays with Mic level:3, input device: Do not use, Output device: System default device. Im not sure why it doesn't work, is anyone else having this problem?

P.S the headset is the one that was released mainly for MW3, you know that one with the camo design. If you do have it, yes I have switched it to PS3 not XBOX.

Hello lucyrules4, it sounds like your headset is likely faulty then if you have connected everything up correctly, I assume its my video you watched as I remember telling people what settings on XMB they needed to change to get the headset working. My suggestion would be to take the headset back and ask for a replacement if you still have proof of purchase if it was as a gift kindly ask whoever got it you if they have proof of purchase eg (reciept, card payment etc).

I dont think it is faulty, because my other headset worked fine with my other PS3, but doesnt with this one, could it be the PS3?

Hi lucyrules4,

 

Is the Giotec EX-05 able to be paired via USB? (like the offcial one). If so you could attempt pairing by cable rather than by Bluetooth and may have more luck. I would also test the headset on a bluetooth enabled phone to check the device is functioning correctly, does it have a reset button at all?
