    Looks pretty stylish. I'm not a fan of these "hang on your ear" devices - they feel really awkward

    Sweeet, looks good. I prefer those type of headsets anyway. I hate the ones you put in your ear.

    cool this and pokemon are a must.

    I don't really understand why people want this..i find the mic on the DS is good enough not to bother with a head set.

    It's because XBox live has made headsets cool Blade, if the DS has one it's another style reason to own the console.

    Who says it's just about the mic. Mayb it's because of the sound as well, seeing the DSL's speakers are quite a bit softer than those from the original DSSmilie

    Imagine playing online without a headset? Everyone will hear everyone cursing and swearing while playing the game. Plus because the mic is closer then it is clearer.

    I was kind of hoping for a handsfree stye headset. You will look like a tool wearing that on the bus.

    Pair of ear phones fixes everything and it's in stereo!Smilie

    Well, what if you want to curse at someone? With a mic nearer to your mouth you could wisper, so I still say yes to the headsetSmilie

    Bring the mic closer to your mouth and NOT SEE THE SCREEN CUZ YOU HAVE TO KEEP IT TOO CLOSE?!!?! No thank you Smilie

    You never have to bring it too close though you can generally just talk casually.

    If I am so pissed that I want to call someone a fuckwad then whispering it will be the last thing I'll do. Generally screaming it and shaking the DS is more the order of the day .

    I'm not being funny but would you really want to be talking into any kind of headset on the bus? And how would you play online on a bus? etc. Smilie

    Replace bus with anywhere, then.

    U.S. Release date.....???

    I'll admit that I can't really understand why they can't do a worldwide release with such a small thing. Hey, maybe they can outshine MS's worldwide 360 efforts, with a r0x0rzing haedste!!!!1!!1! Smilie

    When you're going to say something like that at least spell the words right...Smilie

    Well I hate headsets but this I can accept...It doesn't go around your hair like those other retarded ones...If only it was wireless like the Motorola one. I love that headset sooo much...
