Sony's sixth generation gaming console has received critical acclaim for its great games as well as its great features, which makes it evident as to why you would want to learn how to put the Playstation Bluetooth into discovery mode. One such feature is the ability to use a Bluetooth headset as a microphone, a feature that is not supported by its rival the Xbox 360.  However, in order to use this feature you must first know how to put a Playstation Bluetooth into discovery mode so it can sync to your PS3.

In order to sync your bluetooth headset, you will need:

  • A Playstation 3
  • A compatible Bluetooth headset (Bluetooth 3.0 or earlier)
  1. Before pairing your headset and putting it into discovery mode, make sure that you bluetooth headset is fully charged.  Each bluetooth headset will have its own instructions for how to enter "Pairing mode".  Often, you can accomplish this by simply holding down the power button for ten seconds.   Your headset should begin flashing to signal that it has entered "Pairing mode".  
  2. Turn on your Playstation 3 and put bluetooth into discovery mode.

Your Playstation Bluetooth is now in discovery mode.

Go out and have fun with your Bluetooth Headset now that it is in discovery mode.
