I have been using this in-ear mic for a few months now. It works fine and does a great job picking up noises and sounds, and you can also hear well with it.
But the main problem is how it fits into your ear. You can put it on your right OR left ear, and the part that arches over the top of your ear is flexable so you can kind of bend it to make it fit how you want. But when it comes to piece that actually goes inside of your ear, it isn't so simple.
I read in other reviews that it doesn't feel good and that it doesn't stay in well. This is true. Not only have I had problems with it, others I know who I let use it said the same. And the multipule reviews saying this pretty much confirms it. It's hard to get it into a secure position. And when you do finally get it into one, it hurts the inside of your ear a lot.
Don't let that stop you from buying this though, it's just a minor set back in my opinion. It doesn't hurt your EVERY time you use it, just after you have had it in one place the whole time. Other than this issue, it's a great head set.
If you're wondering how the lay out of this head set is, or how it works, look at the picture. The circle you see tword the top of the item is the mute botton. Which glows red. Right above that is the power button which you have to hold for a few seconds, once it turns on, you'll know by the little jingle it makes. When it's on, the light on it turns green. To the right of those two buttons is the Volume + button. When you press it, you hear a beep. It gets louder everytime you press it as an indicator of how loud it is. To the left of those two buttons is the exact opposite, the Volume - button. Which makes the same beep sound when you press it, but rather than getting louder with every use of the button, it gets quieter to indicate how quiet it is. And there are two holes in the end of the head set which is what picks up the volume (obviously).
When I first bought this, I didn't know how to make it work, so I had a friend help me. If you buy this and have the same problem, this is how it's solved. You take the cord that comes with head set, and you plug one end into the PS3, and the other end into the head set. If you have trouble finding where you plug it in on the head set, it is located at the very top, above Power button. What you do is plug it in, then it take about 5-10 seconds for it to connect to your PS3, after that, you're ready to go, and your PS3 will recognize it from now on when you use it.
I hope this review wasn't too long and that it is useful to whoever reads it. :)
