Sony on Thursday made owners of its PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset aware that it was planning to fix a problem existing ever since the PS3’s 4.10 firmware update. It wanted to improve conflicts between “sidetone,” the inclusion of the wearer’s own voice to provide feedback, and some games. The addition had produced “unintended” effects, Sony said.
I own a pair of these but did not notice the problem. I’m sure it there is this background noise but just haven’t noticed it yet. I’m glad Sony is making the effort to fix the problem before many of us know it is a problem.
