I only just recently took a look at the SteelSeries Elite Prism gaming headset, but at the same time the company sent me the revised Siberia v3 gaming headset, which I'm going to review today. I've been using the Siberia v3 for around two weeks now to give it a total thrashing when it comes to all things gaming and productivity.
SteelSeries recently updated their PC gaming headset lineup, with the impressive Elite Prism gaming headset, but one of the most beloved gaming headsets of all time has also been updated; the Siberia. We have the V3 headset here, with professional gamers, casual gamers and everyone in between using this headset, it has some big shoes to fill.
I had been using the Elite Prism right up until I put it back in its box to take out the Siberia v3, with the Elite Prism becoming one of my favorite gaming headsets of all time. I wanted to walk into the Siberia V3 with those expectations, so let's see how I go. First off, we'll check out the various specifications, pricing and availability of SteelSeries' Siberia v3.
SteelSeries uses only quality components in their headsets, starting off with noise-reducing, memory foam ear cushions. On top of that, literally, we have a lightweight, self-adjusting headband which can be incredibly comfortable, but we'll have more on that soon.
The company has used a new flexible and durable reinforced design with the Siberia v3, provided a retractable and flexible crystal-clear microphone for those all-night, serious gaming sessions, and a microphone mute button to the side.
There's a universal 3.5mm jack that also comes with an adapter, so you can plug it into virtually anything. SteelSeries says that the Siberia v3 is compatible with your PC, PS4, Mac, iOS device and Android devices. This makes it quite a versatile headset, something that any gamer would love to own.
Pricing & Availability
SteelSeries has priced the Siberia v3 at under $100, which should have most gamers being able to afford them. Amazon has the black version of the Siberia v3, the one we have for testing, for $99.33, while the white version of the headset is $99.99. Both are available right now, at the time of writing at least, with 3-4 day turn around (even over Christmas).
The Box - Another Great Presentation by SteelSeries
Presentation is something that SteelSeries has done extremely well, so let's take a look at, around, and inside of the Siberia Siberia v3 box.
The front of the box has a great high-res image of the Siberia v3, giving you a great look at that self-adjusting headband, a slight tease of that new and improved microphone, and more. We find out in the top right hand corner that this headset works with Windows, Mac, PlayStation 4, iOS and Android devices.
On the back we receive some information on the various parts of the Siberia v3, including the noise-reducing, memory foam ear cushions, and more.
On the sides of the box, we have a look at the left and right sides of the Siberia v3. This is a really nice touch by SteelSeries, as most companies wouldn't concentrate so much on the sides of the box itself.
Opening the box we find the Siberia v3 headset is snuggled in nice and tight, with a little package that includes a manual, and a nice SteelSeries sticker.
A closer look at the inside of the box, with the headset still inside.
