Closed type Headphones

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.

Powerful Beauty

The SteelSeries Siberia v2 headset is the successor to SteelSeries Siberia Full-size USB headset, which revolutionized several features in the headset industry. The Siberia v2 features a beautiful design combined with functionality and performance, all in one headset.

Retractable Microphone

The Siberia v2 features a retractable microphone that can be hidden in the left earcup, which means you can use it when you need it, but don't have to flash it in public if you don't want to.

Quality Driver Units

It's one thing to have a beautiful exterior, but it's what's inside that makes these one of the best quality headsets on the market. A 50 mm driver unit with crystal clear sound in high, low, and mid-range ensures quality output for multiple uses.

Volume Control

The integrated volume controller on the cord offers an option to handle sound volume manually. This feature is especially useful when you are using your Siberia v2 USB with other devices and don't have swift access to setting volume levels in your software.

Noise Reduction

The earcups feature a noise reducing foam, which helps you to focus on the important audio or voice communication, and not being disturbed or interrupted by outside noise.

What Critics Are Saying About the SteelSeries Siberia v2 Headset

"... Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer provided my main test bed for audio accuracy, and I was surprised at how efficiently stereo sound works in the game. I was able to determine the direction of enemy fire and distant explosions as well as I can wile using my 5.1 headphones. The new piano black earcups are awesome ... and like the last model in the Siberia line, they're as comfy as a Snuggie." Score: 93%
--PCGamer.com

"They look awesome enough to be teamed with an iPod, and the tiny, responsive geektastic mic tucks away nicely."
--PCFormat.TechRadar.com

"The SteelSeries Siberia v2 is one of the best gaming headsets we've reviewed. It's solid, sounds fantastic and is comfortable to wear. If you're looking for a gaming headset for around this price range, then there's no reason you shouldn't pick up a Siberia v2 for yourself."

A video review of the SteelSeries Siberia V/2 USB-powered headset. One thing I failed to mention: The headeset WILL run without the accompanying software, but you lose some functionality by not using the software. Without it, you cannot adjust the LED settings and you cannot change equalizer settings.

I was expecting a good headset when I bought these. What I was not expecting was to fall in love.

Pros:
Its fits perfectly and the unique design completely removes any pressure from the ears/head.
Sound is amazing
looks cool on your head

Cons:
Does not say I love you back when I got to bed
Apparently it is not legal to marry these headphones in the state of Arizona.
Taking these headphones out for a romantic evening will get you laughed at.
Does not make you run faster
Could not be used as a weapon in the zombie apocalypse.

Steelseries makes many excellent products, this being one as well, but there is one key area this headset fails to deliver and unfortunately that is in quality of audio. If you're looking for the two in one combo (headphones and built-in microphone) then at this price range the Siberia V2 is highly recommended but if you can live with headphones and a clip-on mic the Audio Technica AD700 & Zalman Clip-On Mic is a vastly superior combination.

Steelseries Sibera V2 Pros:
Extremely comfortable.
Very well built.
High quality microphone.
One of the most comfortable headsets that will fit any sized head.
A very adequate cable length (minus the included extended cable.)
An easy to reach and unobtrusive volume and microphone control device.
Excellent for hip-hop and dubstep.

Steelseries Sibera V2 Cons:
Average quality highs. (Sound)
Below average quality mids. (Sound)
Above Average quality lows. (Sound)
Poor soundstage.
Not very good at all for gaming due to overall sound, particularly in FPS's.

To put it simply the Siberia V2s just aren't very loud when it comes to anything other than bass. Bass drowns out vital in-game sounds, especially in first person shooters. Those explosions sound so cool! Too bad I couldn't hear the guy sneaking up behind me nor what direction he came from.

Superior options at a cheaper price.
Icemat Siberia Headset (clip-on microphone included). Steelseries bought Icemat, their current headset design is based off Icemat. $30 on EBay.
JVC HARX700 headphones (no mic) $40 on Amazon. Zalman Clip-On Mic $7.90 (free shipping) Amazon seller.

The steel series Siberia v2 headset packs a lot of quality for the money. I picked this headset up on Cyber Monday for $50, along with an Astro Pro Mix amp. My review of this headset will contain both the use of the astro mix amp, and without.
So I want to keep this more focused on gaming, since this is a gaming headset. I can't tell you how angry it makes me reading reviews on gaming headsets where the reviewer is just talking about how great or terrible it sounds listening to classical music, when all you want to know is how well it performs while gaming! I will include a bit about music, but I won't wax on about it.

So I've previously owned Turtle Beach x1, TB x3 (wireless), and Tritton AX pro headsets. I can say with great confidence these blow all of them combined out of the water! I also have experience using the Astro A40, and Sennheiser PC360s (Currently called the G4ME One) both with Astro Mix amp. Far and away the Mix amp with PC 360 is the best setup I've ever experienced (For gaming).
-------------------------------

Siberia V2 without mix amp tested on PC with AC Unity, Battlefield 4, and Left for Dead 2:

*Good sound stage for positional Audio. Caught a few people sneaking up on me, but got caught a lot when a lot of sound was happening. Could not tell whether enemies were up high or low, but could hear them walking all around me.
*Kind of quite compared to what I am use to, but still loud enough to make gaming enjoyable.
*The Lows are very dominant, but not overwhelming. They Handle the blends of highs mids and lows all happening at the same time, without the sounds all bleeding together, or cutting out like some headsets (Astro A40).

This is the second SteelSeries headset I've owned and, much like the last set, the Siberia v2 are fantastic. This is one of the most comfortable headsets I've ever worn. Unlike other brands, it doesn't actually have a way to adjust the size to fit your head; rather, it has a unique band that adjusts to your head whenever you put it on. Combined with the soft foam padding around the ears makes it easy to wear for several hours at a time. The sound quality is excellent; It's about what you would expect from headphones in this price range. The microphone is crisp and clear and comes across with no background noise. The extremely long cable is a nice touch as well.
