What's Hot, What's Not & Final Thoughts


For those who want to sum up the entire review in a few points, the What's Hot and What's Not part of my review will help you. Skip right to this bit if you want a quick read, or if you want to find out what I found to be the most notable parts of the Siberia Elite Prism, we're going to jump into that right now.


What's Hot


Memory Foam Earcups FTW: SteelSeries - thank you for using memory foam earcups, they are absolutely glorious. I had the Siberia Elite Prism on for hours upon hours every day for my daily writing of news, and they never became uncomfortable.




They Look Great: Let's face it: you're not going to buy a buy a PC gaming headset that looks bad, especially when you're sinking a good amount of dollars into it. Luckily, the Siberia Elite Prism look just as good as they sound.


Customization: SteelSeries allow for some great customization with the LED rings around the Siberia Elite Prism, and with 16.8 million colors to choose from, you won't get bored of changing the LED color any time soon.


Most Of All, They Sound Great: The SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism look great, they have some detailed customization and options, but most of all: they sound amazing. For the price, the Siberia Elite Prism is one of the best gaming headsets you can buy. From bullets to music, it does it all in premium


What's Not


Not So Great Surround Sound: I wish we had 5.1-channel surround sound here, or at least some really great surround sound effects, but we don't. You still get the sense of surround, but it's in no way near the levels I'd like.



Final Thoughts


This is a great headset for gamers, and from the shelf-full of PC gaming headsets I have, it is one of the best. SteelSeries has done PC gamers justice with the Siberia Elite Prism - from the great memory foam earcups, to the really adjustable suspension headband, it is all premium, folks.




I was quite amazed at the quality of the headset, but from the outset, SteelSeries were out to impress me. If you're in the market for a new PC gaming headset, you truly owe it to yourself to at least try these out, and if you're an impulse buyer: I would have no problems recommending the SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism to you.
