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

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Gaming Headset - Black

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.

4 out of 5 eggsNice all around

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Gaming Headset - Black

Pros: I was impressed to hear thing in my music and other audio that I never heard before in a cheap Logitech headphone that this replaced. VERY nice sound. It is clear and balanced very nicely, IMHO.

The muffs are nice and comfortable, and feel great on the ears, even with my glasses.

Cons: My biggest disappointment is that pieces of my brain didn't splatter against the wall when I turned the volume up to 100% like with my old Logitech headset. In fact, listening to it at 100% seems to be the only level worth listening to it at all; anything else is too quiet. Another 25% more volume would be perfect. Putting the audio to 110%+ in Linux caused it to distort, but this sort of expected when you overdrive sometime.

The mic quality was fine for my needs. Seemed to pick up a bit of the fan noise in my room though. Fine for skype, but don't plan on doing any voice recordings without some post processing and done in a very quiet room (duh!) :)

Other Thoughts: Not bad. Not bad at all :) I guess I will just have to get accustomed to quality over volume!

Also like having the heaphone/mic jacks as opposed to USB. The extension cable actually works perfect for me; less worry about standing on the cord, and can quickly detach and switch it to the laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is great

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Gaming Headset - Black

Pros: Sounds great, bass doesnt sound distorted even with music, sure an audiophile might complain but i have a car with a system when i want super bass. These things hit but not too hard and i like it as it sounds perfectly balanced with the treble. Also people sound clearer and you hear things you normally wouldn't pick up when using speakers. The mic works in that people tell me my voice sounds crystal clear and that it doesnt pick up other noise in the room they are comfortable for hours(my longest gaming session this past weekend was 12 hours) on end and they dont make my ears tired even with glasses on.

Cons: its not really a big issue, certainly not enough to drop an egg but just to be critical about my review and having to think about a con i kind of wish the material for the ear-pads were made of cloth. they seem like a really thin genuine leather and the pad underneath feels poofy and really soft, i don't know if they will end up cracking down the road but the material seems really flexible so that shouldn't be an issue, but the only thing i can complain about is when i go to remove the headset it feels like they are stuck to my head in that i almost have to peel the seal off the side of my face i guess that could be a good thing too depending how you look at it or personal preference..

Other Thoughts: I had spent hours looking at headsets and narrowing down at all the ones i wanted and trying to stick with my PCs color scheme. At the end, i had my choices down to this and the Corsair Vengeance 1500. Ultimately i chose this becuase the vengeance1500's review rating was less then 50% 5 eggs and this was like 60% at the time; and these had signifigantly less deal breaking complaints. As soon as i put these on, heard the sound and tested the mic in vent, i was sure that i made the right choice the right choice.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Gaming Headset - Black

Pros: Everything. This headset is absolutely incredible. I've had it for over a year now (1 year and 1 month to be exact) and it's been exactly the same since day 1.

It is THE most comfortable headset I've ever worn. And like a fine wine, the comfort only gets better with age. I've used Logitech, Turtlebeach, Bose, Beats... and for comfort, this headset trumps all.

I like simplicity. If you want extra software to change your voice or to monitor and control every aspect of audio, then this is not the headset for you. But if you're like me, and all you want is a button for volume control and to mute the microphone, this this IS the headset for you.

The sound quality is great. Now, I'm an audiophile. I have totally separate headset for listening only because...well...yeah. Audiophile. But this is not that kind of headset. This is the kind of headset you game with and talk to your buddies with on Skype, Vent, Mumble, etc. AND I WOULDN'T WANT ANY OTHER KIND OF HEADSET FOR THAT PURPOSE.

Cons: It doesn't make me a sandwich but hey, you can't get everything you want.

Other Thoughts: Stop reading this review and buy the headset already.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat as expected

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Gaming Headset - Black

Pros: Great Headset. Having the mic able to retract is a fantastic feature. Cord is very long, so it can be run behind the desk for better cable control. Sound is crystal clear, microphone picks up my voice well and friends say it sounds good. Ear pads are reasonably comfortable.

Cons: Ear pads are slightly uncomfortable when wearing glasses with them for long periods of time. Only noticed when the headset was on for more than 4 hours. Likely the glasses more than the headset.

Other Thoughts: Super fast free shipping from Newegg as usual.

2 out of 5 eggsnot good

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia V2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Gaming Headset - Black

Pros: Ummmmmmm....

Cons: I have an average sized head, these are not comfortable for extended gaming. The sound is lacking, the boom is average. I returned these and bought the Senheiser game zeros, the only reason people think this headset is good is because they haven't tried real quality.
