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