    Educate me please, bluetooth headsets

    I'm currently shopping around for a PS3, and was planning to use my amp and speakers for regular sound. I'm just a little bit confused about where the sound will go with a bluetooth headset. Looking at the official Sony one it seems to be a mono headset, so I assume not all of the game sound comes out of the speaker. Questions for PS3 and headset owners if you don't mind:

    - Does the headset just do the voice comms each way and the game sound come out of your normal speakers?

    - If so how do people find having a headset in one ear and normal sound elsewhere?

    - If not, does anyone use a mono headset?

    I was hoping to stay away from proper headphones, I wanted to be a couch gamer and get away from the PC experience, but if it's going to be a lot of faff I could just use stereo headphones with a mic. Thanks Hexus folks

    Hi,
    I use a small bluetooth ear piece and I only hear voice chat in my ear and have the gaming sounds coming from my tv, I dont hear any voice chat through my tv and the mics good enough to be able to hear my friends and they hear me clear enough.

    I find it very easy to use and hardly notice it's there.

    Thanks gtech. Separating the sound like that and only having the voice coming out of the headset made sense but I wanted to double check. Sounds like a good system.

    you can configure the voice chat to come through either the TV, or the BT headset.

    Ah awesome. Still to find a 120GB PS3 in stock yet alone for the £200 price everyone keeps talking about!

    Yep, voice chat comes through the headset as default - everything else will come through your speakers.

    If you're in the market for a headset, the official Sony one really is much better than any others in terms of sound quality and clarity of voice.
