SteelSeries Siberia v2 Gaming Headset
headphones it's that they should be both comfortable and sound great. I
mean that's why you bought them in the first place, right? Besides, who
wants a migraine headache after a 12-hour session of World at War? Known
for pushing out top-end gaming gear, the engineers at SteelSeries have
taken an already fantastic set of gaming headphones and improved upon
them. The new SteelSeries Siberia v2 combines all of the great features
of the first-gen Siberia with come great new features that might have
actually been worth the wait.
The new SteelSeries Siberia v2 headphones are one slick set of audio
gear. The original SteelSeries Siberia full-size headset is already a
huge success in the gaming market and has even found several
high-profile followers in the music industry. So why would they go
around messing with a good thing? Because they know that in order to
remain relevant they have to keep innovating. The Siberia v2 features a
new invisible retractable microphone that pulls out from the left
earcup. This should definitely come in handy as a space-saver for
Another improvement over the original Siberia are the Siberia v2′s
increased 50-mm speakers and increased frequency response of 10-28,000
Hz. From a look at the specs it's clear to see that these were designed
for professional gamers where detailed accurate sound is critical. The
new Siberia v2 also sports leather-clad, padded earcups so you can
completely isolate yourself from the world once you put them on. Along
with the new sound-isolating earcups comes a patented headband
suspension system that makes it practically weightless on your head.
Just don't forget you're wearing it and leave the house. Not a good look.
Some of the other key features of the new SteelSeries Siberia v2
Full-size Headset include 32Ohm impedance, SPL at 1kHz of 112dB, dual
3.5-mm jacks and 50-16,000 Hz unidirectional microphone. The volume
regulator, the cord and its base have also been upgraded. SteelSeries
shortened the length of the primary cord and included a longer,
secondary cord for use with less portable systems.
