how do you pair wireless headset with ps3?

On the PS3, navigate to Accessory Settings > Manage Bluetooth Devices. At the bottom, you'll then select Register New Device. Then place your bluetooth headset in pairing mode, usually by holding the power button until the LED blinks rapidly. Back on the PS3, then select Start Scanning and select your device. The PIN for all headsets by default is 0000.

there are two different places in XMB to change your headset settings. If both of these are not active then it will not work. One is accessory settings Manage bluetooth devices and make sure the headset has a blue dot by it, the other is accessory settings also and audio device settings.
