Siberia Elite shows an old dog a few new tricks

SteelSeries is widely known amongst the gaming community for having amazing peripherals. One of my personal favorites was the Sibera V2 headset. It isn’t the cream of the crop, but it’s affordable, and does my most beloved tunes justice. However, technology is always in an ever-changing state, and it came as no surprise that SteelSeries would come out with a bigger, better headset.

Enter in the Siberia Elite. As the name implies, it’s got a lot more going on under the hood, and looks good to boot! This white headset is complimented by rings of LED light on the outside ear cup, both of which are capable of 16.8 million different color possibilities. On the left ear cup, you will be able to rotate a dial to mute or unmute your microphone. The right side ear cup has a dial that will let you control the volume. This means no more fiddling with in-line controls. The band that goes across the top of your head uses a self-adjusting suspension system so that it won’t become too heavy over time.

The ear cups are made of leather, and will put virtual 7.1 surround sounds into your ear holes. Thanks to the SteelSeries Engine 3, you can customize those sounds specifically in 10 different profiles so you can get the most out of each game you play. The microphone is capable of noise reduction, meaning you won’t sound terrible during a call. It is also retractable, so when you’re not talking to friends it won’t be in your way. This will cost you $200, and has a swappable cable system so it can be used on anything from a PC to your smartphone.
