PS3 7.1 Stereo Headset Dongle replacement?

There has been some moving around of my gaming set up recently, and I am afraid to report that the wireless dongle for my Sony Stereo Headset seems to have been misplaced. So... I was wondering is there anyway to get this headset to work without the dongle, and if not, where can I buy a suitable replacement?

As GraphiteGB states, the USB dongle on the headset is tied to the headset and is unique.

 

Therefore another dongle will not work with the headset (even if you reset both the dongle and the headset before attempting to pair).

i think you need to contact sony, because its a sony product.
My best guess will be to go to http://www.sony.com/ and ask the support if they have a spare replacement dongle.

Sony don't sell them.

 

The Dongle is Paired with the headset at the sub contracted factory that built the headset, SCE sells the rebranded headset under their logo, another dongle will not work with it.

Users here have allready tried as they have had more than one dongle in the same location and reported 

 

The headset won't link.

 

You have made the headset into an expensive lump of plastic you can't use.

 

So Time to buy a new headset.

The Cheapest Gaming Wired Headset users surgest is the PX21 this way theres no dongle to lose.. .

The expensive wireless gaming headset is the PX5 this has a base station which is so big you won't realy misplace it...

Both of these can be used on more than the PS3.

My friend told me, he managed to do it without the dongle. He just connected it with the USB-Cable just like an usual Headset.  
For some reason i can't get it to work. When it's searching it finds nothing :(  Really need some help over here

My house got broken into and my console was stolen, which had the USB dongle of the headset in. Now I cant use my headset with my new console because of a stupid little dongle which should be easily replaceable. What the hell Sony?????

They dongles can be used for other headsets, so , the headphone i received from my friend worked with my existing wireless dongle. i can use both headsets with one dongle although the pairing process is abit tedious.(using the tiny holes to reset both receiver and the headset make them both start looking for a "pair" signal.
