SteelSeries is best known for their innovative and all round great gaming peripherals, but when most serious gaming enthusiasts think “SteelSeries” they think “keyboards” or “mice”. It is only as an afterthought that some may remember this storied company is firmly entrenched in the headset market as well. This is a shame as SteelSeries has been producing some well reviewed headsets which combine great comfort with reasonably consistent sound reproduction all at a sensible price. A classic example of this combination is their original Siberia headset (also known as the “Icemat Siberia” headset) which was a good performer and was actually SteelSeries’ first headset. Today we are going to look at their redesigned Siberia V2 to see if it can live up to the standards set by its forbearers.

The Siberia V2 is not just some minor cosmetic upgrade like its name may suggest; this is a near complete overhaul and rebuild of the classic Siberia. The new version boasts redesigned 50mm drivers while using a slightly upgraded design to increase the comfort characteristics which made the Siberia a favorite amongst headset wearing game enthusiasts.

Since this is a SteelSeries product and has been out for a while now, finding it at retailers across North America is actually quite easy. In fact, nearly any serious computer store that caters to the enthusiast gaming niche most likely will have these in stock and have them priced at about $90 US. This certainly is a very reasonable price tag, assuming that they can live up to their predecessors’ high standards.
