Experience a rich and detailed soundscape from immersive atmospheric background music to precise 3D positional sounds of footsteps, gunfire and more.

The gold rings on the SteelSeries Siberia v2 Black & Gold Edition headsets are created by using a process called vacuum metallization which helps to achieve the gold, shiny-like finish of the rings seen on both the right and left earcup. SteelSeries is one of the first company’s in the gaming industry to use this process in peripheral color creation.

SteelSeries Siberia v2 is one of the most popular gaming headsets on the planet.

2 out of 5 eggsmeh...

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - Red

Pros: I bought 2 pairs, one still works, the other... doesn't

Pros though

You won't lose the mic as it's built in and you can tuck it away.
The headset sounds pretty decent with a good soundcard and you have the EQ setup just right.

It's plug and play and works well for the PC platform, generally comfortable for medium head shaped people

Cons: Well, out of warranty, I can't get any replacement or have a question answered as... I don't have the box and the number on the headset isn't the serial number.

The design of the cables is weak. It's thin, and well, mine somehow got damaged and I can't replace it as it's the cable that directly is connected with the headset (not the extension part)

Other companies actually make it so you can replace this part but not everyone does.

My gf doesn't have a big head as I do, it's not very comfortable for me for long periods of use.

Other Thoughts: I bought this from recommendation from a friend who played CS competitively. He swore by them and had them for awhile. His still works and loves them and fits his head, but doesn't fit my head very well.

I bought 2 pairs ago over a year ago and, it's ok. One broke, so I'm in the process of finding a new headset, or a mic and a headphone. Don't think I'll buy anymore steelseries products with the exception of their mousepad.

Sound quality isn't bad, but it's not mindblowing, it's not that great for music listening, and it's a bit muddled in bass at times.

At this price point, I would do a bit more research as it's a pretty competitive area.

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - Red

Pros: Let me begin by saying that I'm an extreme metal music reviewer (Volumes of Sin for those curious). I was searching for a while for a pair of headphones that I could utilize both at home for gaming and on the go for reviews; plus, high sound quality is an ABSOLUTE must for review purposes.

- Amazing sound quality, honestly one of the best I've ever experienced. Awesome natural sound.

- Great, but not overwhelming, bass. Absolutely no static at all. Full stereo as well (front and back left and right, plus middle).

- Comes with a 3 ft extension cable, perfect for laying in bed and watching a movie or gaming while in bed (if your bed is not near your PC.)

- Extremely comfortable ear pieces. Full of cushion.

- The headset adjusts to fit your head automatically, no need for manual adjustment.

- Hidden and adjustable microphone that slides back inside the headset when on the run.

- Convenient volume knob.

Cons: Well it's the one year mark now and today the headset finally went. And guess what? Warranty on these bad boys is only a year.

I don't abuse the cord or headset at all, in fact I treated it like solid gold because I rely on this headset heavily. But I did get a LOT of use out of it. Virtually every day, 12-16 hours a day. I'm surprised they didn't grow into my skin.

If you're going to be using these strictly at home, I think you'll be fine for longer than a year so long as you don't toss the set around.

Other Thoughts: The 3ft extension cable gave out long before the actual headphones did. Though my dachshund was notorious for stepping on it.

Overall, they took general wear and tear for a year of nearly all day use. But when they go, they go abruptly with no warning.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - Red

Pros: - Working great so far
- Look cool
- Sound isn't bad
- Not too much base (good for competitive gaming though honestly)
- Mic + volume clips

Cons: - Kind of cheaply made for the price
- $25 Creative Fatal1ty's were better for music

Other Thoughts: I had the original Icemat Siberia (before SteelSeries took em' in), the SteelSeries 5H & 5HV2. All 3 were treated well yet had one of the headphones die out after a year. I grabbed this one with a warranty and you should too. Honestly doesn't sounder better than my $25 Creative Fatal1ty's when it comes to music. For gaming though they'll been pretty decent so I'll continue seeing how it goes on SS's final headset shot.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than Turtle Beaches

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - Red

Pros: * Ridiculously comfortable
* No adjustable components and it fits perfectly (and I have a big enough head that most hats don't fit me!)
* Don't have to mess around with drivers
* Comes with a super long double 3.5 mm extension cable
* Pretty good sound quality
* Retractable mic feels durable, transmits my voice well, and hides quite nicely
* Fairly cheap

Cons: * Wired
* Not *quite* as high-quality sound as a USB headset (presumably since USB headsets can source more power?)
* The red is meh

Other Thoughts: I sometime stream to Twitch.tv using XSplit, and with my previous USB headphones (Turtle Beach PX3) I would often times struggle to have Windows recognize my headset, have trouble getting my game to output sound through my headphones as opposed to my speakers, etc.

With 3.5mm jack headphones no longer have to deal with driver mumbo-jumbo, which for me is a good thing.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - Red

Pros: Very comfortable
Retractable mic
Good mic fidelity
Great headphone fidelity
Open can design
Reliable - owned for almost 2 years with no problems

Cons: A bit gaudy-looking
Mic mute switch is a flat, slick plastic slider so sometimes it's hard to use

Other Thoughts: I use these at work so I can listen to music without annoying coworkers. They're great because of the comfort, music fidelity, and the fact that when someone wants my attention, I can easily hear them. The downside is that they look pretty dorky, so when I'm using the headset on a video conference, I'm a bit embarrassed. Nonetheless, they're great for gaming and listening to music if you don't want to completely lose your awareness of the real world.

Also, the retractable mic is a huge plus for me. I'm 2 years in with moderate mic usage, and the retracting works just as well as when I bought it.

-Mute and volume sliders are nice

5 out of 5 eggsBest sound I've heard from a headset yet....

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - Red

Pros: I received these for Christmas, and all I can say is these things ROCK....actually outperform ones I've heard that cost way more. Mic fidelity is amazing as well.... if you're in the market for a new set of gaming cans, these are a super solid choice.

They fit comfortably with glasses on (unlike many headsets) and are comfortable for long wear as well.

Bass is nice and deep, and doesn't muddle the mids or highs. Mids and highs are crystal clear as well.

Cons: Nothing I can think of

4 out of 5 eggsGreat 1st case!

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - Red

Pros: Very nice finish inside and out very smooth.
Super quiet compared to other cases with cheaper fans.
Love the led fans, light up the room at night.
Easy to access back with indented access panel.

Cons: Flimsy optical drive door.(not a problem just grinds my gears)
Had no idea how to install optical drive.
Instructions aren't as clear as they could be.
PCIe covers on the back are a pain to remove if you aren't careful they will leave stubs that make installing things tricky.

Other Thoughts: Wish I could give it 5 eggs but I was thoroughly confused when assembling my computer.
Also I'm not biased, love the case just needs to be easier for a beginner
