Features

SteelSeries Headset

Powerful Beauty

The SteelSeries Siberia v2 headset is the successor to SteelSeries Siberia Full-size 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.

Noise Reduction

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.



SteelSeries Headset

Quality Driver Units

It's one thing to have a beautiful exterior, but it's what's inside that that makes these one of the best quality headsets on the market. A 50mm driver unit with crystal clear sound in high, low, and mid-range ensures quality output for multiple uses.

Retractable Microphone

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.



SteelSeries Headset

Keeping It Real, or Rather, Vacuum Metalized

Don't try to melt down the gold and sell it. 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. Check out the black & gold edition in the photo gallery below!



SteelSeries Headset

Volume Control

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 with other devices and don't have swift access to setting volume levels in your software.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Comfortable.
Audio is ok.

Cons: Awful Mic Quality, despite looking at many YouTube videos before purchasing the Mic the quality just does not add up, and I don't mean by a little, I mean the mic has killer static, it's very low sounding, just terraible quality in general. Very disipointed. My old $10 mic is 10x better.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks great, Bad build quality

Pros: + Looks amazing
+ Sounds great when working properly

Cons: - They're extremely fragile. I'd consider myself pretty gentle when it comes to my headsets and I've had two pairs of these break on me after a very short time. Both times they broke was because of the metal wires holding the head

- The mic isn't the greatest quality. Becareful when pulling it out of the headset.

- The sound sometimes cuts out on one side of the headphones when adjusting the sound via the control.

Other Thoughts: I've been a user of the Siberias for a very long time. Back when Icemat was its own company. These headphones have always had problems and steelseries has yet to address them.

I most likely won't be using any of the new siberia products til steelseries starts fixing some of the build problems.

oh well atleast I'm finally out of this abusive relationship! :P

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Decent sound, comfortable,and fairly durable. Had this pair for about a year and a half, and only recently the texture on the ear pads has been peeling off. A lot of my previous headphones usually break along the plastic headband some time after 6 months, but this has been holding up pretty well.

Cons: These are just minor nitpicks... The cord is a bit short, but it comes with an extension cord. However, this extension cord tends to get tangled up in itself, and I have to unplug and unwind it every so often.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset

Pros: Very comfortable - I can wear these for hours.
Good mic - it doesn't pick up much background noise
Volume control and mic on/off switch on the cable is convenient.
Mic retracts when not in use.
Sound quality is good.
Works on Windows and Linux.

Cons: The audio/mic cable is a bit short but it comes with an extension cable to fix that, so none that I've seen so far.

Other Thoughts: Great overall headset. This is my first steelseries purchase and definitely not my last.

3 out of 5 eggsthey changed the quality

Pros: well the first set was awesome.

Cons: this set is not awesome

Other Thoughts: the first set lasted more than a year with me beating the hell out of it every step of the way. They finally broke so I bought another pair... the quality on THIS set was.... less than the first. in fact they have started to malfunction after only 3 moths of setting at a desk. I would NOT recommend getting a new set of these the quality is not there anymore.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a title

Pros: Comfortable, very comfortable. The mic is super adjustable, more flexible than most others, and the sound quality is good. The mic output is decent, never had a serious issue with static or noise.

Best headset for its price range, $70.

Cons: I had an initial issue with static in my audio output but that problem seemed to disappear randomly. Left speaker broke within a year, see Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I hear the left speaker, the one with the cords and mic attached to it, are always the speakers that die early on headsets, including reviews I have read of this. However, I just got a new chair and never bothered to tie up the loose cord, and would constantly run over the headset wiring as i spun around in it, maybe that's what killed the left speaker?

I have owned 5 headsets, 2 turtle beaches (an $80 and $120 range), a really cheap one whose brand i forgot, a kraken razor pro and this one. By far it has been my favorite, headset and the most comfortable. I just bought a second one to replace my broken one. I notice that it does not fit my head as nicely as my older one did but I expect adjust over time. I highly recommend this model.

2 out of 5 eggsDont buy this if you want a decent quality build

Pros: Acceptable for the price
Good sound
Good bass

Cons: Pad is DEMN HOT
Pad will break after about 12 month
Wire too thin
Volume control will BREAK after few month use
Sound of the left or right break or silence for no reason, have to send for repair (happen to 3 of mine)

Other Thoughts: I own steelseries v1, and 2 of v2, use them for over 5 years.
Neverbuy audio device from steelseries again.

Now i only use my cheap 5$ earbud, which is verygood for the price

Tip: set volume control of headset to max and use software (in windows) to change the volume only.

V1 have better build

5 out of 5 eggsSteelSeries Siberia V2

Pros: Got these headphones spring of 2013. Was upgrading from Creative Fatality II's because one side went out on one of them.

These things are impact durable, I've knocked them off my desk dozens of time onto wood a floor since I've owned the them. Cords been yanked to death for this same reason and because I don't use the extension cable that they provide, which adds a good few feet of length.

Now as for the sound quality, I feel that they are better than my old Creative Fatality II, but its been so long since I've used another pair of headphones I cannot really give an accurate comparison. I haven't noticed any sound degradation over the year either.

The cable has never crinkled up on me. The sheathing is nice and thick so as to prevent that.

It doesn't matter how long I wear them I don't experience pain from them being too tight. I have a medium sized head.

Cons: Now the one thing I can say say isn't the best is the microphone quality. It isn't per say bad, and I cannot give a great comparison to other headphones in this price range, but on Windows 7 and 8 I was having to turn on Mic Boost to be heard clearly. This was over multiple VOIP programs such as TS, Axon, Skype, Mumble, etc. Granted I had to do this with my Creative Fatality II as well.
In hot environments the faux leather or whatever the ear piece is made out of will get sweaty. I would still recommend it over cloth ear pieces though.

Other Thoughts: Buying headphones from what I've read and in my experience seems largely a matter of chance whether you get a good pair that has no defects and that won't fail on you within a year.

It seems to be the same throughout all of the brands I researched. The are always the lemons and when you buy some headphones be sure to register whatever warrenty you get and send them back if you are suspecting they are failing.

Regardless, these headphones have served me incredibly and should they fail I will be purchasing them again or hopefully Siberia v3 if they are out at that point. Steel Series has my future purchases from now on.

4 out of 5 eggsGood quality, but disappointing life span for its price

Pros: Insanely comfortable compared to any other headset I've worn. I wear glasses and it has never been uncomfortable in the year+ that I've owned it. Does get a little hot under the earpieces with prolonged wear, especially in the summer months, but nothing unbearable. I wear this headset for a good 8-10 hours a day and have no issues with the way it wears. Audio quality is good, too, but I'm no audiophile so I'm not that hard to please. Relatively noise-cancelling, but not a complete block-out. When the mic worked, it was decent enough, but nothing stellar.

Cons: The mic's life. After about 8 months or so, the mic stopped working when it was fully pulled out. I could leave it retracted or pull it out slightly and it would still work, but if I pulled it out to its full extension, it would stop working. And then just a week shy of one year, the mic stopped working altogether. Now, after 1 month of the mic not working at all, it's safe to say it's not going to work again. Considering the price of this headset, that lifespan is quite disappointing. My older headset that is over 3 years old still works, and it was only $25.

Other Thoughts: I'm rather tempted to buy another pair of this headset just because it's so comfortable, but the threat of another short lifespan stops me from doing so. The headphones audio still works for me, but I need a headset with a working mic.
