We're stoked about your recent Skullcandy Gaming purchase, and we're here to make sure you get the best possible audio experience with your product. Below you will find instructions on setting up your new PLYR 1 With the Playstation 3. If you have trouble using your PLYR1 headset after following the steps below, you can contact our support team who is here to help and can be reached at 888.MY.SKULL (697-5855), Monday - Friday from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. MST. 

Setup steps:

  1. You will not need your AV cables for the PLYR 1 so if you don’t have them, no worries!  The PS3 whether slim or first generation will have an optical port known as S/PDIF.
  2. A quick reminder: to get your PLYR1 running with Dolby Digital your system MUST be updated to software update 3.70 or later.
  3. Plug your short USB to USB Mini cable into the mini USB port on the back of your PLYR1 transmitter stand
  4. Plug your optical cable into the optical-in port on the back of your PLYR1 transmitter stand
  5. Grab your PS3 and plug the other end of your optical cable into the back of the PS3
  6. Plug the USB to USB Mini cable into the USB port located on the front of the PS3
