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

"All-in-all the Siberia V2 is a brilliant all-round headset and should be considered when looking for a decent pair of headphones for any purpose, not just gaming. Its sleek design and high quality finish combined with its superb sound quality mean I would personally recommend it to anyone."
--Henry Butt, HardwareHeaven.com

This isn't my first Steelseries headset (previous models being the 3H for PC and the Siberia Neckband), but it may be my last! At least until they release something that beats it, that is. Or it breaks, whichever comes first. Anyway, moving on.

I actually bought this headset for use with my Astro Mixamp, which unfortunately didn't come in until much later than this headset. Not knowing Astro had changed the hookups for their A40s and thus not knowing that the A40 + Mixamp would NOT come with the cable I needed to use the Siberia V2, I've yet to fully realize this purpose. The Y Adapter is on the way, and I'll update this review after getting to use it for a bit.

I have so far sampled the sound through the Mixamp, and it is excellent. The best of the thousands of dollars of headsets I've used over the last few years.

Now, I can say, the USB sound card that comes with this headset is excellent. It may not be as good as the Mixamp, but I'm not sure anything compares in that case. It had very clear surround sound, and was a breeze to setup and configure.

The headset itself is the most comfortable I've ever had the pleasure of placing on my head. More comfortable than the Siberia Neckband, which I fell asleep while wearing the first night of owning it. This headset auto adjusts to your head. No need to wrestle with tightening, loosening or with it sliding out of position. It holds on tight, and stays comfortable while doing so.

Having recently gotten a pair of Astro A40s as well, I had a very clear line with which to compare. The A40s only arrived last week, so I've been using them to judge which headset I'll ultimately use with the Mixamp. After comparing sound quality in games, music, and movies (Avengers Assemble!

This is my third USB Microphone/Headset combination. First two were various Logitech lower end units which either broke or became uncomfortable over longer gaming sessions (2+ hours on). These headphones are MUCH more comfortable and a lot less quirky to set up and use than other USB headsets. And the sound is very high quality. I use these for gaming, but the quality for music via iTunes is noticeably better as well.

Downsides- price. SteelSeries stuff is more expensive and these are no exception. If you are not gaming, don't wear your headset more than an hour at a time or are not that picky on sound quality you may want to go with a cheaper Logitech. But if you have the money, you will not be disappointed with the performance of the Siberia v.2's.

This review is for the Siberia V2 USB Gaming headset.

So you (the reader) can have a sense of reference for my review, let me start off by saying that I am a PC gamer and planned on using this headset primarily for that purpose alone.

As a gamer I am interested in the following:
1) Sound quality
2) Comfort
3) Directional sound
4) Design/construction of headset
5) Drivers/software

The games I wanted to use it for were: Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3, Portal 2, and others (as I purchased/played them). That being said, I can not and will not cover any movies or music usage aspects of this headset in my review, since I am not an expert at those two at all.

I have recently tried out the Corsair Vengeance 1500 USB Headset as well (my review can be found on there too), and decided to go with the Steelseries V2 Siberia.

1) SOUND QUALITY = A
Really, really good. The virtual 7.1 surround sound (achievable with the included USB sound card) actually works! The 50mm drivers sound wonderful and are able to accurately reproduce everything from base-rich explosions to light footsteps.
I personally did not hear any background "hissing" sounds. And my mic quality was superb as well (verified with friends over Skype, in-game voice).

2) COMFORT = A
I really think THIS is where Steelseries has an edge over other similarly-priced headsets. Their design (although appearing flimsy) allows for an insanely comfortable fit. I do not have a very large head, nor do I have over-sized ears, but most of the other headsets were uncomfortable for me (the Corsair Vengeance felt like it was constantly squeezing my head). This is not so with these! I can wear them for hours and not feel ANY discomfort.

I got this headset as a replacement for a pair of studio-phones (the Audiotechnica ATH-M40fs) that could be worn for long periods of time and have better sound recreation for gaming.

They fit the bill perfectly. The 7.1 surround really gets you into the game. You get a sense of where everything is around you (currently using them while playing Skyrim), and they have enough bass to get that rumble when dragons soar overhead.

The earphones are extremely comfortable for long-term wear, so long as you keep the pads off of your temples. They do not have any drivers sticking up from under the pads like the AT's do. I'm also a full-time glasses wearer, and need to have 'phones that don't put too much pressure on them or make them off-kilter - these do not. They're so light and put nearly no pressure on your head.

They're very nice to use as casual music-phones. The little bit of bass is just the right amount for me (as someone who gets headaches from bass), and it brings out a different sound from my music than the studio-phones do.

The only con is that I don't like how thin the cable is on the headphones. I'm positive I'll roll over it one of these days, and then it'll be dead.

I actually bought these headphones from "the egg" computer website as recertified. They arrived in horrible condition, reeking of cigarette smoke and had gum or something on the microphone. I contacted Steelseries and was able to RMA the gross phones. They ended up sending me a BRAND NEW pair of the same headphones.
