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.
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.
Yes you can. Just go to accessories or audio device settings. Have your headset on and hit connect bluetooth device. The key it asks for should be 0000. If that doesn't work do a quick search online and you should be able to find one that works.

You can't.only Sony ps3 made products connect to ps3..but u can try then on blue tooth on you r device..then settings in ps3.find accessories.. go in there find blue tooth devices do a scan..may or nay not see device..try USB connecting device
It is just be a matter of synching the blue tooth system of the blackberry to that of the PS3. Assuming the PS3 is not currently connected to the web or connected to a modem, you should be able to search for the PS3 by using the Bluetooth search tool in the Blackberry setup menus. Then for headsets,set those up through the PS3 by turning on the head sets, and then using the Blue tooth set up utility of the PS3 to search for the head sets.
Otherwise If you do not have Wifi active currently and don't have good cellular coverage in your area, you can use a Wifi Bridge Dongle (connector cable) like this one, there are others available too. http://www.espow.com/wholesale-wifi-bridge-dongle-wireless-for-dreambox-xbox-ps3.html to connect the PS3 to your home computer and use it as the hub assuming you ahve it connected to DSL or broadband. headsets would set up the same way.
Turn on your PS3 and go to settings. Accessories, add blue tooth device, Turn your bluetooth to discovery mode. go back to PS3 to scan mode. Select the H17 that shows up and enter the bluetooth pairing code 0000 that is right four zeros in a row and hit enter on your PS3. They should now synch, the main thing people forget to do is actually select that item inside your PS3 to synch. Hope this helps. Happy Gaming
yes, okay.. there should be the turn on button on your blue tooth headset, make sure the blue tooth headset is off.. now before you start the scan, hold down the power button for the blue tooth until it starts blinking colors.. usually red and clue, then start the scan, the pass code for the blue tooth will also be 0000, it is for mostly every single one
for some reason it doesnt always auto set up the bluetooth
1.go to settings
3.audio device settings
4. make sure that your input and output device are set to a connected bluetooth device.
hope this helps
Hi, i had this same problem. really annoyin. first make sure you charge the headset fully. then while keeping the slidy mouth piece closed hold down the centre button untill the blue light comes on and will start flashing. your ps3 will then be able to find it. the defualt pass code is 0000
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!
