I was looking into to getting one of these headsets and I checked them out at best buy today. I noticed on the box it says "engineered for Xbox 360, also works with ps3". Does anyone on here use one of these on ps3?

Yes. There are certain lower-end models that are made specifically for PS3 or specifically for Xbox, but most work on both.

I'm on PS3, I started out with a P11. It was pretty good, mic cable got messed up after about 6 months, so I upgraded to a DPX21. Its amazing, probably the best quality you'll get for $100.

My brother has a simple pair of Turtle Beach Earforce P11's he uses on the PS3. It may be their most basic headset, but it has great sound and clarity. Even when I play with him he is usually one of the more clear players in the lobby. I think these ones were designed specifically for the PS3 though, but if it works with the PS3 also, I wouldn't hesitate. Turtle Beach are one of the more reliable brands on the market. I prefer Astro's, but that is neither here nor there.

Astros have the best sound quality, but price is the issue. If you're looking to spend $200+, astros are the way to go.

Turtle Beaches break easily.

Wouldn't recommend them.

I've had my x11's for over a year. They still work like the day I got them.

Everyone I've known who has had turtle beaches has had them break.

Some treated them with care and others rougher. Didn't matter. They make them out of cheap materials.

I had my original Beaches for like 2 years before I upgraded. Those were like the X1's I think. Taking care of the stuff you buy goes a long way.

I would recommend most people to start out with a basic pair of Turtle Beaches just to see if a headset is something you will actually regularly use.

I'm a PS3 user and I have the Turtle Beach P11s, had them about a year. The sound bugs out occasionally but other than that they're solid. My friend just bought a pair as well, because I recommended them.

Turtle Beaches are terrible. I have them only because they're what I can afford. The x12s are decent, what I have, but the padding compresses pretty easily so it get's uncomfortable.

If money is no object, as some mentioned, Astro's are the way to go. The new A40s are amazing

Here's a price chart for you:

<100 - Turtle Beaches

100-200 - Steelseries (had a pair and loved them)

>200 - Astros

I think I'm gonna be in the same boat of just getting what I can afford unfortunately. I looked at Astros last night, one of them was 300 bucks.

Yeah the A40s are 300$, they are also the best headset on the market for Xbox pretty much.

The x12s are pretty good for $50
