-The mic is great quality, I use it to game and I recommend it if you frequent a mumble/ventrilo etc and I love the fact that the mic retracts, makes eating at my desk that much easier!
-The wire is super long so if you have a PC that's far away it's perfect for you, if you have a laptop it's also great because you can just unhook the extension cord.
-I've had this headset for about a year now and they are still going strong!
-The only downside I see here is that they don't have much bass. Not a huge deal though since I use it for gaming as was advertised. So no star deduction.
8.5/10 - For comfortability - Gets a bit warm when wearing them for a while
9.2/10 - For sound (I.E Footsteps in a game) - I seem to hear what others sometimes cannot
5.5/10 - For bass - Like I said, wasn't really intended for playing music
10 /10 - For durability - Mine hasn't broken yet, and I've had them for a year and dropped them a few times
Overall: 9/10 - Great gaming headset for the price glad I bought it.
Originally I was very happy with them. I game about 4 hours on weekdays and 12 hours on weekends. Great sound quality, good mic, very comfortable.
However after about 4 months I started getting complaints from friends on Skype and other voice clients that I was projecting terrible feedback and static, all while I was not talking at all but with an open mic. I would have to unplug the mic cable then plug it back in to fix the issue.
I also find the cord tangles very easily. Several times a week I'm having to unplug the headset from my computer and hold it upside down so it spins and untangles itself.
Overall, they're a good budget pair of headphones, and I'm happy with them at the $55 price I paid. Will be moving on to another headset from a different company pretty soon though.
Now I see this kind of external USB sound card Logitech USB To 3.5mm Jack Audio Adapter which would obviously be the cheaper way to go compared to buying a device like the iMic! I'd never seen a USB-3.5mm device before and it looks like this is what is missing on the Mac end to use this headset!
I used the first pair for 3 months before the audio cut out in one ear... So I returned it to SteelSeries and after paying the $16 dollar shipping cost and waiting 4 weeks I got a new pair. This pair lasted 6 months before the microphone just started producing straight static. I was literally in a Skype conversation with my friend and mid sentence he starts telling me how my mic is only making static. So yet again I sent them back... paid the shipping cost again... and got another new pair which the right ear cup stopped working on after 8 months.
I used Turtle Beach headphones before this and they lasted several years before I sold them to my friend and they still work. I bought a pair of ASTRO A40 headphones after the Siberia V2s and they have now worked fine for over 2 years and I use them with my computer and my phone. Now I use AKG K7XX and they are far superior in comfort and quality.
I strongly encourage you not to buy these because of how poor the quality is. I was baited into buying them with the advice of how: "The sound quality is just as good as other headphones that are $100 more." While yes, it does have decent sound quality for a headset... There's several other pairs of headphones without a mic that have much much better quality and are more durable.
Just don't buy these. They are bad durability wise... Look up various audiophile community's and see what they recommend. Get a pair of headphones without a mic and get an external mic to attach to them....
- Comfort. These fit my big head with no fuss.
- Durability. I have a tendency to keep pretty good care of stuff like this, so your mileage may vary. They're plastic, but have had a couple of drops to the carpet with no breakage. I've handled the retractable mic with some caution and it still works great.
- The detachable extension cords are nice, but if you have the extension plugged in and aren't using the full length, a velcro tie-wrap is a must; I would not trust the cable to hold up to any sort of abuse.
- Sound quality is very passable, but not superb. For games and such they're great, for music/video....eh, not-so-much.
- Earcups are vinyl/leather and will eventually make some ear-sweat after a relatively short (30+ mins) usage session.
Would recommend for gaming use on the light-to-medium usage range, but don't expect to beat on these things - they're reasonably durable but will NOT hold up to any sort of abuse.
