Steelseries Siberia v2

Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3

Introduction

As all good companies do, SteelSeries have taken one of their existing products, and made a series of improvements, upgrades and enhancements. The original Siberia headset, already a success, did have a number of flaws; perhaps the most notable of all was the microphone. The V2 should be able to put all this right as well as a few other bits and pieces. So can the Siberia headset be transformed from a good headset to a great one? Let’s take a look…

SteelSeries’ Take on the Siberia V2

“Based on the award-winning SteelSeries Siberia Full-size Headset, the v2 features major enhancements in sound quality, comfort and its microphone. Every element of the v2 has been optimized for pro gaming, making the headset a preferred piece of equipment for the worlds’ best competitive PC gamers – the most demanding headset users in the world.

Sporting 25% larger 50mm driver units, the SteelSeries Siberia Full-size Headset dramatically boosts overall acoustic performance. Experience a rich and detailed soundscape from immersive atmospheric background music to precise 3D positional sounds of footsteps, gunfire and more.

The close type ear cups feature thick leather padded cushions built from sound dampening foam, designed to offer passive noise reduction from loud surroundings and improve comfort over prolonged use. A virtually invisible uni-directional microphone can be retracted from the left ear cup, optimized for essential voice communications.

The v2 remains lightweight and its trademark headband suspension construction makes it extremely comfortable for use over long periods of time.”

    Good at first, but only after one year the audio in the right earpiece began to go out. Now I can barely here anything out of it at all and it’s strange since the left is fine.

    The sound is great while it lasts, but if you have to spend this much money on a headset and have it go out after only one year you might as well spend your money on something better.
