The 3-in-1 consists of stereo headphones, remote control and microphone. Obviously, the stereo headphones allows you to listen to audio in stereo quality. The remote lets you control your video and music playback as well as volume and the microphone allows you to communicate with your friends whether it be via games or on Skype.
The sound quality when listening to music or videos is clear. I tested the earphones and I heard my friend clearly. When speaking into the microphone, the other person on the other end heard me clearly as well. The microphone didnt really pick up much background noise.
The remote control itself is pretty basic and self explanatory. You have you controls such as Play, Pause, Hold, Fast Forward, Back Forward and Volume adjust.
The back of the remote contains a clip and prevents the remote from dangling or swinging around. You can clip the remote to your shift or shirt pocket. The earphones are short wired. No extra wire length to get you tangled up.
The earphone quality is sub-par but I prefer to use my own headphones (Sony MDR-EX71SL). Just remember that if you're using a regular headphones that has the long wires, to roll them up or your remote would be dangling near your knees.
The quality of the remote itself feels sturdy but the buttons felt flimsy but atleast they worked well.
Conclusion : Overall, PSP Slim 2000 Earphone Microphone is a good product. It works but the quality of the buttons and earphones hampers the design. I suggest using your own headphones. A feature that I feel that should have been added was a FM tuner. I would like to listen to the radio using my PSP.
