One thing to bear in mind is that the audio that is sent to the Crysis 2 Bluetooth Headset
is determined by the device you pair it with. Specifically, both the PS3 and my Backflip restricted use to communication. There doesn't appear to be a setting anywhere that would allow me to use the Crysis 2 Bluetooth Headset
to listen to game or media audio; it's merely for hearing others when I'm talking to them. That's based on the PS3 and the phone, however, so your device may differ or future updates could change this.
There were two problems I experienced with the device itself. One was that the overall sound quality wasn't great; it made communication sound like you were on the phone, which isn't horrible, I suppose, when you're using it with a phone, but leaves something to be desired when playing games on your PS3. The other issue I noticed was an occasional clicking noise when I was wearing it and it was on (and paired with) the PS3, but I wasn't using it. I wasn't able to tell what the cause was, but it was annoying enough that I wouldn't suggest leaving it on, paired and in your ear if you're not playing a game where you plan to use it. For contrast, I just realized I'm still wearing my Astro Gaming A30 headphones, even though I haven't listened to anything in an hour or so. They're comfortable enough to forget about, and muffle ambient noise a bit, allowing me to concentrate better. The Crysis 2 Bluetooth Headset, on the other hand, would be more of a put-it-on-when-I-plan-to-use-it sort of thing, when used with the PS3, because of this clicking.
The other drawback of headsets, in general, is that the only people you can talk to are other players who also have headsets. If you're playing online games casually, then you may find yourself playing against groups of other people who don't have a headset or groups of players who speak a language you don't know. I ran into both of these issues when testing the Crysis 2 Bluetooth Headset out online on my PS3. If, however, you belong to a group of people that regularly play on online games, then this communication may be vital to your team's success.
If you're looking for something for serious gaming sessions, I would suggest something along the lines of a full headphone/headset setup like the Astro Gaming A30 and Mixamp. If, however, you are looking for something to use when you're on your couch playing PS3 or on the go using your cell phone and you are into Crysis 2 and the slick, futuristic styling, then the Crysis 2 Bluetooth Headset might be just what you're looking for.
