O Cancel About the P21 Headset The Ear Force® P21 pushes your PS3 gaming experience to a new level with superior stereo sound and crystal-clear communication on the PlayStation® Network (PSN). By combining PSN online chat with stereo game audio, the P21 lets you hear the voices of online players together with the game sound, without the need for external speakers and a communicator headset. The P21 gives you a competitive advantage by enabling you to clearly communicate with others online while bringing out subtle sound cues in the game that are difficult to hear with speakers—such as the footsteps of an enemy sneaking up on you or the loading of a weapon at a distance. With its exceptional audio quality, convenient online communication and comfortable ergonomic design, the P21 can help you become a better player while making it a lot more fun to play games on your PS3! Important Information 1. Be careful when turning on the master volume control on the headphones. Before placing the headphones over your ears, set the volume control to minimum, then slowly increase until you reach a comfortable level. 2. Like any speakers, overdriving headphones may cause damage to both the headphones and your ears. Please listen at moderate levels. 3. WARNING: Long term exposure to loud music or other sounds in headphones may cause hearing damage. It is best to avoid extreme volume levels when using headphones, especially for extended periods. Over time, your ears adapt to the volume level, so a level that may not cause initial discomfort might still damage your hearing.

Mic Mute Switch When “ON”, the microphone is muted so you won't be heard by other players online. Expander Switch When “ON”, the expander spreads out the stereo separation for a fuller game sound. Bass Boost Sets the intensity of bass boost level applied to the game audio. Chat Boost LED The intensity of this blue LED indicates the amount of Chat Boost applied to the chat signal. The LED intensity increases as Chat Boost increases the level of teammates' voices in response to louder game sound. Chat Volume Sets the level of other player's voices on the PlayStation Network. Chat Boost increases this volume as the game sound increases. Game Audio Volume Sets the game sound level. Mic Monitor (not shown) When the mic is not muted, you'll hear yourself speak in the headphones, so you won't shout as much when talking online. Stereo Bass Boost Mic Mute Expander Level Mic Mute Switch Switch Indicator / и LED | — aque EE 1) ‚ Game Audio Incoming Volume Chat Boost Chat Indicator LED Volume Chat Boost is a dynamic talkback expander built into the P21 headset that automatically amplifies incoming chat during loud moments in your game. This allows you to always hear your teammates, regardless of the game volume. Typically, if you turn up the headset game volume, the chat sound level could become difficult to hear over the game sound. However, with Chat Boost, as the game audio increases, the chat volume also increases and the chat voices will keep up with game level so you can hear what the online players are saying. When the game volume quiets down again, Chat Boost automatically returns the chat level to the lower volume setting. The blue Chat Boost LED indicator will become brighter as the game volume gets louder and the chat level is increased to compensate. When the LED is dim, the chat volume is only slightly increased. When the LED is bright, the chat volume is significantly increased. To properly set the Chat Boost function: 1. Turn down the game volume control on the P21 amplifier so there is no game audio. 2. Adjust the chat volume control on the P21 amplifier so you can hear the chat voices at a comfortable level. 3. Gradually turn up the game volume. You will notice that the chat volume will increase as the game gets louder—just as if the talkback volume control is being automatically turned up along with the game level. PLEASE NOTE: If the chat volume on the P21 amplifier is set too loud, Chat Boost might increase the chat level so much that the incoming voices will distort. If this happens, turn down the chat volume on the P21 amplifier.
