A couple of days of testing, and I’m simply in love with this headset. My only real disagreement with it was the colour scheme and long term comfort, but then again I’m not a fan of yellow and black because it reminds me of bees. I don’t like bees.
The microphone is retractable, flexible and on a very sturdy cable so it doesn’t change position once it has been set. The sound quality is excellent all round, both the mic and actual audio provide clear and crisp feedback. It’s definitely got the actual audio quality to match up to its 5.1 and 7.1 competitors on the gaming-headset-market.
The price is a little bit daunting, but with the Siberia v2 you’re definitely paying that little bit extra for all-round quality. I imagine that the brilliant sturdiness of the whole product will especially come in handy if you suffer from dire cases of nerd rage and frequently throw your headset at the wall.
Then to top everything off, it’s comfortable on the skin – just a bit tight on the head.
If you do decide to pick up a new headset, I definitely recommend considering paying that bit extra for the Siberia v2. You get more than your bang for your buck.
