SteelSeries are a very well established company intent on producing professional grade gaming gear for all skill levels. From its formation in 2001, SteelSeries have gone a long way and now produces a wide range of peripherals from mice, keyboards and headsets to mouse pads and now even special branded products.
The Siberia headset is just one of many that SteelSeries now include in their audio range. Boasting comfort, multi-functionality and a detachable mic, a great deal of thought appears to have gone into the design of the Siberia and from the looks of things it must have paid off as there are now several different versions of the Siberia to choose from.
We will be taking a closer look at the original; introducing the Siberia full-size headset.
Steelseries’ Take on the Siberia
“The SteelSeries Siberia Full-size Headset was developed in co-operation with professional gamers to ensure that the soundscape, specifications and comfort is suitable for long gaming sessions. But the SteelSeries Siberia Full-size Headset is also designed for multi-functionality. Apart from using the headset for PC-gaming, this product has been designed so gamers can use it with their favourite MP3-player, handheld gaming device or practically any other kind of portable digital device.
And that is why the headset features a separate microphone, so users can enjoy music on the road without having to bring unnecessary gear. The cable length has been optimized for use with MP3-players and similar products, and comes with an additional extra long cable for use with stationary computers.”
