Introduction
Product on Review: Steelseries Siberia V2 Headset
Manufacturer: Steelseries
MSRP: 74



It was only a few weeks ago that I reviewed the Steelseries Siberia and today we have a fresh new version of this wonderful headset. Steelseries have recognized some of the issues that critics highlighted in the first version of the Siberia, and have made steps towards creating an even better gaming headset - which is fabulous news. I always find it admirable when companies identify problems and make the effort to improving their products it shows how much they care about the consumer.



Steelseries have the following to say about the new and improved Siberia V2:
- Closed type headphones
- Pull-out microphone
- Crystal clear high, low and mid-tones
- 50mm driver units
- Lightweight suspension construction
- Integrated volume control located on the cord


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.
