PS3 Bluetooth Headset Going Slim

A reader sent us this promo sleeve for the PlayStation 3 Bluetooth headset earlier this week, which now appears to be sporting a slimmer, sleeker design than the original model.

Not only has the ear clasp been made thinner, but the front buttons and indicators have been cleaned up too. The material clearly states that this is an official Sony product, not a third-party offering.

The feature set on the back of the box has no new features compared to the existing version, so it appears to be a simple aesthetic upgrade for a device that was looking a little, well, clunky as we push on towards 2011.

As the box says, it'll be priced at $US50, which is the same as the existing model. No word on a release date, but we've asked Sony and will update if we hear back.

Below is a comparison between the new headset on the left, and the old on the right.


    Are there other pictures? Am I missing something? I can't see anything indicating that it's an official headset...

    Might be real, but that doesnt look like promo material from sony - the poster is very poor design and look at the quality between the two pictures you have shown.

    But there's no Sony logo on it? Just bought the original one for $30 from the UK too, but the thinner model seems kinda....feminine

    That ear clasp looks as if it could fall off at any moment.
