The Siberia V2 from Steel Series

 Siberia V2 headset review

Appearance: The Siberia V2 headset itself is extremely compact and comes in an assortment of colors, ranging from purple to orange to black to pink. As you can see from these pictures, it’s extremely light weight and thanks to the retractable mic, you don’t have to worry about it taking up much space.

Extendable mics are the new hotness!

Construction: While I haven’t taken apart the Siberia V2 headset, mostly because I would never get it back together, it’s made of some high quality plastic overall. It also features some high quality padding to cup your little ear holes. The most unique thing I noticed about the overall construction is that the headband (I think that’s what it’s called) is comprised of 2 plastic bars running from ear piece to ear piece, and the part that actually touches your head is basically suspended by tiny metallic chords that are tethered internally by, as far as I can tell, just a small spring.

The retractable mic is also a sweet feature, as it lets you convert the whole headset into either a complete gaming experience or an incredibly high quality sound system. The mic itself is surprisingly strong, unexpectedly so even. Flexible and durable, exactly what I like in a headset. I also really like that it doesn’t get in the way by having an incredibly large mic-end.

The headset chord itself comes with both a mic and headphone plug, chord volume control, as well as a mic mute button. The only part I didn’t care for here was the mute button itself is super smooth, and I would prefer a small amount of texture just to add a little extra grip.

Sound Output: Two words here: Noise Canceling. Literally. I can’t hear anything outside the Siberia V2 headset when I’ve got it on and a game going. Even at low volumes, it’s still hard to hear anything in the real world. From League of Legends to Hawken, I’m able to hear every aspect of the game, and nothing else, and that’s what you expect in a high end headset. The speakers also feature directional sound, and it appears to be digital surround sound which is at least the industry standard at this point.

Sound Input: Testing recording playback through Skype, voice input is crystal clear. The mic didn’t pick up anything in my living room, and didn’t add any white noise while I was speaking. Additionally, it doesn’t make you sound fuzzy or locked in a vacuum which is a great quality.

Retailing for $89.99, unless you decide to get fancy with the black & gold version for $10.00 more, you baller you, the Siberia V2 headset can be found over at www.steelseries.com and make sure you stay tuned for my review of the Steel Series Merc Stealth keyboard!

Farm on!
