SteelSeries is a company that gamers respect. Let's take another look at why that is today with the Siberia Special Ed. Red Gaming Headset.

Setup and Installation

 

Once the headphones themselves are taken out of the box and connected to their extension cable, there really is not a whole lot left to do.

All that's remaining is to match your sound card or other audio source you're using to the stereo mini-jack connection provided with the headphones.

 

Secondly, if applicable, connect the other remaining cable to your microphone connection on your sound card.

Once this has been done the next step is to set the master volume for the headphones using their in-line volume control.

 

When you boot up into your sound card drivers, I would also recommend setting them to 'headphone' in most cases, as your sound card will be able to 'pre-set' itself to perform best when it's told the device to which the audio is being sent out to.

Now that the headphones have been connected successfully to your audio device and you have told your device that they're headphones rather than speakers, it's a case of finding some great material to start putting them through their paces.
