"Overall, the SteelSeries Siberia V2 is the perfect blend of affordability and quality, comfort and functionality."
Score: 4.5/ 5
"They are insanely light which is a suprise considering how solid they feel and how good they also sound."
"The SteelSeries Siberia v2 is one of the best gaming headsets we’ve reviewed. It’s solid, sounds fantastic and is comfortable to wear. If you’re looking for a gaming headset for around this price range, then there’s no reason you shouldn’t pick up a Siberia v2 for yourself."
"... They're so comfortable and light you don't even know they're there. And from the amount of calls we've missed this afternoon, we can tell you they do a good job of blocking out background noise as well. [...]"
"They look awesome enough to be teamed with an iPod, and the tiny, responsive geektastic mic tucks away nicely."
"... Modern Warfare 2multiplayer provided my main test bed for audio accuracy, and I was surprised at how efficiently stereo sound works in the game. I was able to determine the direction of enemy fire and distant explosions as well as I can wile using my 5.1 headphones."
"The new piano black earcups are awesome, though. and like the last model in the Siberia line, they're as comfy as a Snuggie."
"The Siberia V2 is an excellent all-around headset and pretty reasonably priced at about $90. Aside from the sloppy cabling, the Mic and audio are decent and external noise suppression is good. But it's the Siberia V2's comfort that makes them truly exceptional and especially well-suited to long gaming sessions. The travel-friendly retractable Mic is also a nice touch."
"All-in-all the Siberia V2 is a brilliant all-round headset and should be considered when looking for a decent pair of headphones for any purpose, not just gaming. Its sleek design and high quality finish combined with its superb sound quality mean I would personally recommend it to anyone."
"Consider this: the Siberia V2 is so light that even if I threw them hard, straight at my carpeted floor, they wouldn’t break or get any damage. That peace of mind is something you can’t get with a big wireless set like the G930, or even with other wired sets."
""Go out and buy it. A+ product right here.""
"They are more comfortable, functional and offer better audio quality than their predecessor. Well done Steelseries, you have produced an excellent product that comes highly recommended by Vortez Hardware."
"So you're looking to buy a new headset? Look no further - the SteelSeries Siberia V2 is almost perfect and definitely as good as it gets - great job SteelSeries."
"SteelSeries have clearly listened to the professional gamers who helped build the headset, but also the average user. The changes compared to the first version of Siberia are enormous, even if it does not seem so. They took a popular product and made it even better."
"... The audio quality in games is simply fantastic."
"... If you're a little more serious, and you're prepared to pay the premium for a product that's built to last, then the Siberia comes highly recommended."
"The Siberia V2 headset is a fantastic, well rounded gaming headset. Its design is impeccable and it caters to a wide variety of people and purposes."
"The Siberia v2 is a joy to use and is used around the world by some of the top eSports teams, including SK Gaming, and it's easy to see why. If I was stuck in a long tournament, there is no other headset I would rather use due to the comfort factor."
"The audio quality of the headphones is superb, with the speakers being able to produce some very clean, head-pounding low-end tones. [...]"
"If you game online and are looking for a decent headset, or even if you're looking for a great pair of headphones, check out the V2. Other options considered, they're a good choice if you're looking for something that will last, feel great, and be affordable."
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.
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 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 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.
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!
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.
