Given the official nod on the Sony US PlayStation Blog, the new effort is 30 per cent smaller than its predecessor and comes chock full of features, including noise-cancelling, automatic USB pairing and even an in-game status indicator.

What’s more, you get a charging cradle and a massive mute button so you can curse about your online opponents without them hearing a thing. And best of all, you can use it with your blower too, meaning you can show off your hard-love for the PS3 when out and about.

US punters are set to get the headset later this month for $50, with UK pricing to be confirmed. Let us know what you think of this latest PS3 add-on on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
