I've been looking at them forever, but have always been hesitant to buy them for that reason.
No, everything you need comes with the headset. You just plug it into the Xbox/PS3 & TV and you're all good.
EDIT: You get a receiver with the wireless headsets, but I don't recommend that if you have a bunch of other things that are are wireless in the vicinity of the receiver.

I'm not sure about an external DVD or Blu Ray (Unless it has a USB and your TV has a headphone jack) but if you're watching anything on the console It works fine.
