"The Siberia v2 is an extremely well built headset that, thanks to its design, is feather light to wear and provides an excellent audio experience."
"In terms of performance the Siberia v2 cannot be faulted. No matter what type of game or media we asked it to handle the headset responded and gave us an excellent experience."
"The product features a strong bass, nice low and high-ranges, and the LiveMix really enhances the chat experience. It is one of the most comfortable headsets we've tested."
"Finally, the sound quality the Siberia V2 CP provides is well above what we would expect from a gaming headset. In conclusion, we highly recommend the SteelSeries Siberia V2 Cross-Platform to anyone in the market for a gaming headset that also plays the role of quality listening headphones. "
"All in all then the Steelseries Siberia V2 PS3 headset is a fantastic quality product based on the legendary Siberia V2, it has the performance, the features, the looks and the quality to back it up and I can see this product being one of the most sought after console peripherals on the market."
"A massive tonal and dynamic range is wrapped in an amazingly beautiful and comfortable design. Whether you’re looking for a new setup to try, or are just dipping your toes in the audio pool, this might be the last one you ever buy – as it works brilliantly with just about anything!"
"The product features a strong bass, nice low and high-ranges, and the LiveMix really enhances the chat experience"
"While headsets are great for nighttime gaming, their mics usually get in the way when you want to, say, listen to music while eating spaghetti. But not the Siberia v2 from SteelSeries, which has a built-in retractable microphone."
"Made for PS3 but compatible with 360s (with an included connector) and everything else that uses headphones, the Siberia have independent voice and in-game volume controls, as well as comfortable ear cups with noise-reducing foam for undistracted marathon sessions."
"I have to say I really enjoy the Black finish on this, and the ease of use on any system. A simple step allows it to go from PS3 to your PC and vice versa. "
"SteelSeries really amazes with this headset, with the addition of the live mix and premium sound, it can really up your game."
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.
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 50mm driver unit with crystal clear sound in high, low, and mid-range ensures quality output for multiple uses.
The Siberia v2 for PS3 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.
For Xbox 360 players, the headset is also compatible for in-game audio and Xbox LIVE communication. Users can simply connect to the Xbox controller through a double-sided 2.5mm connector.
The LiveMix levels range from OFF, which is unaltered in-game and voice sound to LOW (game sound is reduced by 5db when your teammates are talking), MEDIUM (game sound is reduced by 15db), to HIGH (game sound is reduced by 25db). By providing optional levels of LiveMix, users will have the ability to control how much of the game sound they want to hear balanced over the voice communication.
