    I got the Warhawk bundle with the bluetooth headset but can't seem to get it to work properlly with warhawk. My cousin got the same package and we're trying to figure out how to talk to each other on warhawk.

    I've registed the bluetooth device under Settings>Accessory Settings and have used the Audio Device Settings under Settings>Accessory Settings and have the input and output device set as the jabra bt125. My cousin has the same set up.

    In the warhawk game, I hear a little background buzzing type noise making me believe that the headset should be able to work. But I can't hear my cousin even though he's pressing L3 in the game when we're on the same team. He says he can hear me through his TV, but not with the headset.

    So how do we make it so he can hear on the headset instead of the tv and how can I hear on the headset at all. Thanks.

    can you charge that headset just using the USB to mini USB cable that you use to charge the sixaxis?

    No, bc the SIXAXIS doesnt use a mini USB cable. The headset should have came with one

    No they arent. The SIXAXIS's USB port is a regular one and the headset is a mini. The connections wont fit

    i'm seriously wondering if you've ever seen a sixaxis.... or a usb port. maybe the headset has a micro usb port. i doubt it would tho.

    edit: anyway turns out it's not USB chargable. how come it's so damn difficult to find decently priced, usb chargeable, wireless or bluetooth, headsets or mice or keyboards.

    Im sorry, I confused the use of the word mini USB port. What I meant was the SIXAXIS uses a mini USB port whereas the headset uses a micro USB port. The cables used for the two are not compatible as they are not hte same size

    And yes the Jabra headset is USB chargable. That was why it was packed with the USB cable

    the cable connects directly to an adaptor tho. so i assume it's taking more power than usb ports would supply. by USB chargable i mean to charge by connecting the device to a usb port.

    also i read a review stating that it couldn't be recharged from a PCs USB port. it that review is wrong and you could get a USB to micro USB cable and it would recharge that would be suitable enough.

    Warhawk only comes with the game, headset and the micro USB cable. Theres no adapter. You can charge the headset with either the PS3 or PC directly using that one short cable. I do it all the time
