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 v3, we're going to jump into that right now.


What's Hot


Quality Build: SteelSeries do not build cheap, nasty headsets, they only build quality, long-lasting products. The Siberia v3 is yet another member of this ever-growing family of quality PC gaming headsets.




Great Sound: The sound quality from the Siberia v3 is nothing short of great, and considering its sub $100 price tag, this is a testament to SteelSeries wanting to provide gamers with a cheap alternative to the Elite Prism.


Under $100 Price Tag: For $99, you're getting a well-rounded headset, with a great out-of-the-box experience. Everything from the box itself, through to the Siberia v3 headset, everything is top notch quality from one of the best manufacturers of PC gaming headsets in the world.


Memory Foam Ear Cushions: I love you. That is all.


What's Not


Uncomfortable After Hours of Use: This is nearly a deal breaker for me, but in another way, it's not. Personally, it's my head - yours will be different. For me, I can't do 1-2 hours or more, which is a real shame. For people with smaller heads, they will be comfortable for those all-night gaming sessions.



Final Thoughts


SteelSeries has crafted one of the best sub $100 PC gaming headsets on the market with the Siberia v3. The company continues its tradition of making an excellent box and packaging, which provides a massively positive first impressions on the Siberia v3, which continues throughout the experience.




The memory foam ear cushions are just so soft on your ears, while the extendable microphone can bend to your will. With an on/off button on the side, you'll never have people prying into your conversations if you don't want to, which is a nice touch.


The self-adjusting headband is great, and for those with smaller heads or less hair, it will feel great for massive gaming sessions. But it comes with a warning: please do try them on, and if you have lots of room to move with the self-adjusting headband, you should be good. But if it's tight, you might want to reconsider.


For those who try the Siberia v3 and it fits, you are not going to regret your purchase. This is one of the best PC gaming headsets on the market, and it completely dominates the sub $100 category right now.

The Bottom Line: SteelSeries has made one of the most beloved PC gaming headsets, and tuned it in the right places. The self-adjusting headband, for me at least, wasn't big enough, but the improvements across the board lift it up. The ear cushions are unbelievably comfortable, though.
