The same way you did the first one. Go to the settings menu on the PS3 console and scroll down to the accsessories option. Straight foward from there.

    So you have tried to connect it using the PS3 options? When holding down the search button, try connecting it through USB to give it a boost. It could of course just be a faulty one, or one that isnt capable of even connecting to the PS3.

I need to know how to sync my komodo freedom bluetooth headset to my ps3.


Hi there Sk8 demon. I should be able to help you with this problem. The first thing you must do is to put your bluetooth headset into what is known as pairing mode which prepares your bluetooth headset for syncing with your PS3. With your particular model you'll need to hold down the talk button on your headset until the light turns solid. Next in your PS3's XMB menu look for accessory settings then select Register Bluetooth Device followed by Register Headset. Next it will scan for your headset until it (pairs). If you are asked for a code it is almost always 0000. You should be ready to go. Hope I was helpful.

How do i sync my mad catz blue tooth headset to my ps3?


You'll need your controller, console, and headset to do this. Make sure your headset is off before you start, then follow these simple steps.

  1. Power on the PS3 console
  2. Within the "settings" menu, press X on "Accessory Settings"
  3. Press X on the icon labeled: "Register Bluetooth Device"
  4. Scroll down and press X on the icon labeled: "Register Headset/Microphone/Headphones"
  5. Prepare the headset to be paried by holding down the main buttong for 8 seconds.
  6. Once the LED flashes blue and red (indicatin the headset is ready to be paried), press X on "Start Scanning"
  7. Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will list all Bluetooth device visisble and within range.
  8. Locate your headset ID, most likely "8860" or something similar, and press X on it's icon.
  9. Enter 0000 (four zeros) as the Pass key and hit OK.
  10. Now enjoy your synced headset!
If any part of this confuses you, you can find the manual for your headset online here. You'll need a PDF reader to view the file. There are plenty of free ones on the web, but if you don't already have one, I'd recommend this one. It's free and simple.

How can i attach a bluetooth to ps3 plz help


Hello my friend this should help you out.
please remember to leave a positive rating for me and a testimonial if I helped you out!

1. CompatibilityThe PS3 supports only one headset at a time. Multiple players on the same console will have to share.
Bluetooth:
  • The PS3 uses Bluetooth version 2.0, and is compatible with all earlier versions (1.0, 1.1, 1.2). 2009 may see version 2.1 Bluetooth headsets hit the market, so you will have to try it for yourself on PS3.
  • All brands of Bluetooth headset should work with the PS3.
USB:
USB (wired) Headsets can also be used with the PS3.
  • Any of the PS2 compatible USB headsets should work with PS3 games.
  • USB headsets are required for PS2 software used on the PS3.
Not Compatible with Bluetooth Stereo Headphones:
  • The Bluetooth audio signal for PS3 only carries voice chat. The game sounds and music are played through your TV or stereo receiver only.
  • If you want to listen to the gameplay with headphones then they will have to be compatible with your TV or stereo receiver.

2. Setup
A Bluetooth headset has to be registered, or "paired", with your PS3 before it can be used.
  • Make sure your Bluetooth headset is fully charged before you begin.
  • Check your headset instructions for entering "pairing mode". Activate your headsets' "pairing mode" so it can be recognized by the PS3.
  • On the Cross Media Bar (or XMB) of the PS3 go to the "Settings" tab, then down into "Accessory Settings", then down into "Manage Bluetooth Devices".
  • With your headset in pairing mode, follow the onscreen instructions and let the PS3 scan for your headset. When your headset is found, follow the prompts and enter a pass key (if necessary- the default is usually 0000 for all brands). The pairing should now be complete.
If you're using a USB (wired) headset, just plug it into one of the ports on the front of the PS3 (the system should auto-detect the USB headset).

Mic Test and Volume Setting
After pairing a Bluetooth headset, or after plugging in a USB (wired) headset, return to the XMB. Go to "Accessory Settings" and choose "Audio Device Settings". You can test your headset here.
  • Your headset should appear as the audio input/output device. If not, just use the D-pad to highlight the Input line, then scroll until you see yours. Any microphone you have used with your PS3 will be listed, but only the current one will be available to select.
  • Set the "Microphone Level" to 3. You can change the level any time if needed.
  • Speak into the headset, and the level bar at the top of the screen should move at the sound of your voice.
You can also view a list of Bluetooth accessories you have registered in the "Manage Bluetooth Devices" tab under "Settings".
If your mic doesn't appear there then try pairing it again.

There are more ways to configure the audio input and output that can be useful:
  • Set the input to (your mic) and leave the output on (default)- one person can chat with the other players, and the replys will play over your TV speakers rather than into your mic. Great when sharing one console because everyone can hear the team talk.
  • Set the input and output to (default)- you will hear the game sound and voice chat through your TV speakers but won't be able to talk back. Great if you don't have a headset, or if you want the room to hear the team chat.
  • Set the output to (default) to use stereo headphones with your TV or receiver. Then set the input to (your mic) and you can chat while wearing stereo headphones. Keeping the mic close to your face could be a problem since both ears are already taken! You could try a USB desktop mic and see if that works.
and here's a video in case you are a visual learner.

In Game XMB:
  • All of the functions in Audio Device Settings are available when using the XMB via the PS button during a game. You can set the input/output, mic level, and device. You can test your mic, and pair a new BT headset while in game.

3. Troubleshooting
 
General:
If you are having trouble with a headset after it is paired with the PS3, there are a few things to check first:
  • Make sure your headset battery is charged and working. Be aware that some brands/models will need to be paired again after each recharge. It's not a problem, it's just the way those models work.
  • Make sure your controller is charged. Lots of strange things happen when the controllers don't have enough power, like dropouts and headset interference.
  • The headset should be set as the input/output device from the XMB.
  • For Bluetooth users, make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices in use near your PS3. Also try to eliminate any other radio frequency interference if possible.
  • For USB users, make sure the connection is secure and there are no wire breaks.
  • Update your console to the current available firmware.

Ps3 bluetooth headset


You need to "pair" the headset to the PS3. Follow the instructions for your headset (usually holding down the power button until you get a SOLID blue light) then go to Settings>Accesory Settings>Register BlueTooth Device>Scan. When you're done, you need to set your input device to your Headset model #, which should now appear.

Connecting bluetooth headset to ps3


You have to do 2 things in order to use a bluetooth headset on your ps3. First you have to pair it with the ps3. To do this you go to your setting and register the bluetooth device. Make sure your bluetooth device is in pairing mode when you do this. On most headsets you can simply hold down the button until the light comes on a solid color. once it is in pairing mode you will have to scan for new devices. Once this is done you should see the headset on the list. Choose it and enter your pairing code. If you have not set one it will most likely be 0000. Once it is it paired you will have to change your audio output and input. Go to audio device settings and change the input and output device to your headset name. Enjoy!
