Steelseries Siberia Continued
The exterior looks very attractive with the small SteelSeries logo and appropriate ‘L’ or ‘R’ denoting which side is which.
The inside edges of the earcups are padded with very soft material with just a thin piece of fabric covering the actual speakers so as not to muffle the sound.
The padded headband is very comfortable and attached with elastic threads so as to make the headset a perfect match for any head size – a quicker solution than having to manually adjust the headband.
Over the top of said headband, two rigid black cords help to hold the structure together and just finish off the appearance.
The headset is powered by a single 3.5mm jack with a cable length of 1 metre. This is more for use with an mp3 player or other such audio device with a cable extension available for when using the headset in combination with a PC. Using the extension gives a total cable length of 2.8m – a plentiful amount that should reach any port.
Similarly, the microphone is detachable so that it doesn’t get in the way when not required. When it is needed though, a small clip allows it to be attached to, for instance, your shirt. Personally, I would have liked to see the mic attached to the Siberia using the usual boom type. This not only makes it easier to use but saves having an extra full length cable with the mic attached which can results in another tangled mess.
