SteelSeries Siberia V2 Review
I’m back with a little extra for all you musicians who enjoy gaming, and need a great headset that also can be used as reference headphones for your music.
Today we will have a look at the SteelSeries Siberia V2 white headset.
Over a year ago I set out to find a headset to use for my gaming sessions and my demands where set high! They should be comfortable, lightweight and sound good both in games and when listening to music. I tested nearly every headset I found and then one of the salesmen recommended me to try out the SteelSeries Siberia V2 and my search was over.

Real world testing
The SteelSeries Siberia V2 matched my every criteria I had, they are extremely Comfortable, Lightweight and great sounding both in games and for music.
The microphone is clear, transfer sound very nicely and the retractable feature makes it easy to adjusting the microphone or hide it when its not needed.
The SteelSeries Siberia V2 comes with a nice little Volume control with microphone mute function and if the regular cable is not enough you get a 2 Meter extension.
I really want to point out that the SteelSeries Siberia V2 is very Comfortable!!!
The spread of sound in games is perfect and the SteelSeries Siberia V2 really makes games extra enjoyable.
When it comes to music SteelSeries Siberia V2 is very close to what I like in sound, a bit more crisp and they would be spot on, and I use them as extra reference headphones for my own music mixes and mastering’s.
The build quality is ACE! Just look at the images in this post, can you believe that these have been used for hours nearly every day?
Do you enjoy games but want to enjoy them even more?
The SteelSeries Siberia V2 is a great sounding and very Comfortable headset that is perfect for both games and music. Now the SteelSeries Siberia V2 is not meant to be PRO audiophile headphones, but the sound quality is very nice and you can easily use the SteelSeries Siberia V2 as reference headphones.
The price €84.99, this is actually a good price as the build quality, comfort and sound quality is way above what you normally get for that price.
If you are looking for a more Studio dedicated headphones, this is not for you!
