A Closer Look at the Siberia Siberia v3


SteelSeries did such a great job on the Elite Prism, with this job blending into their entire line of PC gaming headsets. The Siberia v3 is yet another great looking headset from the company, so let's dive right into taking a closer look at the Siberia v3 headset.




As you can see, we have the black version of the SteelSeries Siberia v3. The self-adjusting headband can be seen doing its work at the top of the image, with the big comfortable earcups on full display. In the bottom right of the photo, you can see the microphone popping out just slightly.




On the right hand side of the Siberia v3, we have another great shot of that self-adjusting headband, and the stylish design of the earcups from SteelSeries.




The microphone in question, pulled out to its full extent.




Another look at the microphone, pulled all of the way out.




Here we can see the microphone mute button on the side of the Siberia v3.




The Siberia v3 has some impressive memory foam ear cushions, which are incredibly comfortable on your ears.



How They Feel


I used the Siberia v3 for a couple of weeks, wearing them every day when I sat at my desk writing news or articles, as well as copious amounts of gaming, of course. There were great things, but there was one big issue that I found too overwhelming to not write about; they felt uncomfortable (for me at least) after an hour or more of use.


The self-adjusting headband can move a fair bit, but for my head - which isn't that big - didn't gel well with the headset. I found I was getting a sore spot on the very top of my head, where the self-adjusting headband was receiving the most pull. This wasn't super painful, but it was annoying to feel, so after 1-2 hours of gaming, I had to readjust and spend some time with the Siberia v3 off my head.


For the time they didn't hurt, they were unbelievably comfortable. The memory foam ear cushions felt great, where they overlapped my ears and gave me a nice snug feel.


Pulling the microphone out and using it was great, as it is easy to do, as well as turning off the microphone if you need to make sure that no one is listening over TeamSpeak, or whatever communications application you might be using.
