A Closer Look at the Siberia Elite Prism


Now it's time to take a closer, more detailed look at SteelSeries' latest premium gaming headset.




Here we can see that SteelSeries has put a lot of time and effort into the design of the Siberia Elite Prism, with some very comfortable looking earcups, with the design cues pulled over from the original Siberia headsets. A suspension headband has been used, with memory foam earcups for the ultimate experience in long gaming sessions.




A closer look at that suspension headband.




The memory foam on those earcups can be better seen here, but feel so much better on your ears.




Here we can see the side of the headset, with the microphone pulled all the way out.




And again, with the microphone recessed away.




A closer look at that memory foam-based earcup.


SteelSeries has provided LED rings on the sides of the Siberia Elite Prism headset, with 16.8 million colors on offer. The company has also provided their AudioTrigger illumination effect, which is something new to the Elite series. You can pick an RGB color, and watch it pulse in and out based on the volume of music coming out of the headset. There's also a ColorShift and Breathing effect, both of which look really, really cool.




Here's a shot of the Siberia Elite Prism with its blue LED with the lights off in my office - beautiful, isn't it?



How They Feel


I used the Siberia Elite Prism for around 3-4 weeks for my review, using them as my headset of choice for the entire time. I gamed on them, I worked on them, and I had my lunch breaks with them on. I played various games, listened to countless hours of music and watched many movies and YouTube videos with them on.


Not once did I feel uncomfortable, like some other headsets become after a few hours. I found as the hours went past, I didn't notice them there - they became an extension of me. The suspension headband stretches across my head beautifully, not compressing at the sides (your ears), which results in a not-so-comfortable experience, especially after a few hours of them being on your head.
