Product is very lightweight, compared to other bluetooth headsets that tend to feel heavy after a hour+ of wearing, I've worn this for 3 hours with no ache or heavy feeling.
It comes with about half battery, a 6in usb to mini cable, and a stand. For those with the energizer 2 port controller charger, this will not fit the holder designed for the older version, however it works with the mini cable supplied plugged directly into the energizer charger.
Pros: PS3 ready, plugs into the ps2 and registers in 1 second, big mute bottom on the side, great mic and speaker.
Cons: Ear clip seems cheap, will probably break in the future, they should of shipped two. Price was a little high, but version one is only $10 cheaper as of today.

Gave this item to a family member over the holidays. No problems at all.
It is light,small, not very noticeable except for the blue glow from the power indicator...pretty cool looking...so the kids say.
My friends child decided he had to have one also. The no name ones break easily & have static. So get this one.
If you play any game online I'd really recommend getting this to enhance the experience. You're able to communicate better with your team and more. It should also be noted that the official headsets have a high quality mode, giving you extra clarity and noise canceling abilities. This is the best available!
Communication is so important when you're playing games online with other people. Especially if you're trying to work as a team. The battery of this headset lasts a good 10 hours or more, plenty for long gaming sessions. The voice quality is also one of the best available in terms of bluetooth headsets on the market.
The new Bluetooth Headset for the PS3 offers the same unparalleled gaming experience as the previous model, making it a must have for intense online multiplayer games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops, MAG or the highly anticipated sci-fi shooter, Killzone 3. It offers a dual-microphone design, automatic pairing via USB cable with the PS3**, in-game headset status indicator**, an easily accessible microphone mute button, and a charging cradle which also functions as a desktop microphone**. On top of all of that, it’s the only device to offer High-Quality (HQ) mode** which delivers crystal clear voice chat while gaming on the PS3.
So what’s different, you ask? New features include a redesign, making it sleeker, high-gloss and more compact – 30% smaller than the original model. In addition, the Bluetooth Headset now has built-in noise cancellation for filtering out ambient noise when used with the PS3 system as well as your mobile phone. Gadget fiends take note – the new Bluetooth Headset isn’t just for gaming. The improved mobile phone feature support allows you to use features such as three-way calling and call waiting. And with nearly six hours of talk time, you can easily take the Bluetooth Headset with you straight from the living room to the streets.
