P90 GameCon
Wireless Gaming Bluetooth Headset for PlayStation 3

There's really not much to say about this device besides... what a very cool device. Sometimes simplicity wins and the P90 GameCon does just that. By easily pairing this device to our PS3, we were ready to test it with our colleagues and enemies on Call of Duty: Black Ops. It was so much easier than connecting our wired headset with all its cords and tangles.

Highlights

  • Bluetooth® gaming headset for PS3™
  • Easy-to-find mute button
  • QuickPair™ technology for fast pairing to PS3™
  • On-off switch saves battery life
  • Easy-to-reach volume adjustment buttons
  • Works with Playstation3 and most Bluetooth mobile phones
  • Secure, comfortable fit for long game play

In essence, the P90 GameCon Wireless Gaming Bluetooth Headset (phew) allows you to easily chat to people over the PlayStation Network. Even though I have a wired headphone with a microphone for my PlayStation 3, the P90 GameCon works by simply putting it on your ear and then turning it on. It's that easy and no more cords. Best of all, the device is extremely comfortable and I didn't even know I was wearing it for the majority of time.

To charge the device, you can simply connect it to your PS3 and presto, it was charged, thanks to its high-speed charging technology. But even if you don't own a PS3, the P90 GameCon can be used with any device that uses Bluetooth such as a laptop, Apple iPhone or even a mobile phone. Setting up is as simple as the PS3, you simply "pair" the device to your intended Bluetooth device and "Shazam!", it's connected.

The device also tells you when it has to be charged by beeping at you 5 times and changing the LED to red. Other lights on the device include blue for chat and purple for a missed call. As the device is Bluetooth compatible, it has a range from around 30 feet but I really doubt you need that distance when using it on any Bluetooth device, let alone the PlayStation 3... unless you are having a toilet break.

What a great product to be released at the end 2010 and if you're in the market for a quality Bluetooth headset for not only your PS3 but all Bluetooth devices, than you really cannot go pass this device. Highly Recommended!
