extremely Slow Customer Service

Randy P., Newegg
1 November 2014
  • Pros: It looks good and feels good as long as its in the winter and your rooms cold or a good AC if you don't have a good AC your ears will be dripping wet after a short game session. Also it is very light. Good headset with bad Customer Service.
  • Cons: The Customer Service was very bad it took way longer then it should have. I waited 3 months after shipping my headset to them before i got it back. It was so long I had forgot about it.

Great headset for any gamer with average size ears.

  • Summary: Pros: Great sounding noise canceling headset. The mic works great. Aesthetically pleasing and surprisingly light. The inline volume control is a nice feature. Cons: I have larger than normal ears so they hurt if I have them on for to long.

Excellent Buy!

Charles H., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Very much worth it for gamers who have only a few hours at a time to devote to usage.
  • Pros: Very cool looking headset. The red was exactly what I was looking for in my set-up. The console is very cool to customize, and overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
  • Cons: While the headset looks very cool, it is slightly uncomfortable to wear after a few hours. I have bigger ears (lucky me) that seem to be irritated after prolonged use of the set. Also, the Steel Series console is pretty memory heavy in usage. On my PC is runs about 60~80k memory usage as a back-round utility!

Slow Customer Service

Roger P., Newegg
18 February 2014
  • Pros: It sounds good and works well when it is working. The appearance is also great and it appears to be a quality product.
  • Cons: The cord went bad after 2 months of relatively easy use. That can happen to any headset. My complaint is that the replacement process took almost 6 weeks. After they received my defective headset, it took them 4 weeks to ship a replacement. That is a unacceptable response time.

Excellent sound

Matt F., Newegg
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Overall the sound is the best I have ever seen on headset in this price range, but I cant recommend it because a lot of people are complaining of the mic breaking after 6 months or so.
  • Pros: - Really good sound quality - Awesome looking lights and overall design - Mic sound was good - Long cord with extension
  • Cons: - Mic broke after 6 months - Screw popped out of side and I lost it - Uncomfortable on head if worn for a long period of time

Awesome headset, but low mic quality.

Joseph R., Newegg
8 July 2013
  • Summary: The long cord can get annoying if you aren't using it all; however I'm not good at cable management so I can't say it's really a con. It's awesome, and looks great. I only wish there was more setting to play around with like microphone sound frequency.
  • Pros: - Light & Durable - Sound quality it great - Drivers that let you change how audio sounds - The bass is nice! - I got it while it was on sale for $60! - The LED on it look freaking amazing.
  • Cons: - It didn't fit around my head as well as I expected the first few days, but after it wore in for a while, It fit nicely. - Microphone quality is terrible... The AGC (Auto Gain Control) is better off if you don't want your voice flickering, but even then it gives bad results in quality. Maybe it should have microphone settings in the driver software control panel.

Great Headset...kinda

Samuel P., Newegg
20 April 2013
  • Summary: Hopefully I have my warranty info around here somewhere cause this really upsets me that the mic would quit before even 1 year with a headset that cost <$100.
  • Pros: Excellent sound, clear mic, comfortable for long gaming sessions.
  • Cons: Mic just quit on me last week after only 8 months. Have tried everything to make sure it's not a settings problem, and it isn't. Windows sees the mic, but won't pick up any sound.

My Initial Thoughts

Harrison C., Newegg
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Other thoughts * When the headset goes on my head, the ear cups leave a small gap in between the bottom of the ear cup and the skin below my ear but that can be fixed by adjusting a little. * I hope these last for a long time, I am notorious for breaking everything I touch even though I try my best to take care of things .__. * A bit pricey even though I didn't buy it.
  • Pros: I am going to be honest and give all my impressions and opinions of this headset when I first put them on. I just got these today, they were a gift from my best friend for my birthday because he knew I always wanted Siberia V2s. However it was "I Love Blizzard" week and got these for 69.99 from Steelseries so I didn't complain that they weren't white. Pros + All the obvious things, great sound, nice mic, feels nice on the head(I don't get that indent in my hair from w...
  • Cons: Cons - This has been said MANY times when I read 20+ reviews to kill time until my headset arrived. THE CORD IS SHORT AS HELL, I use a laptop because I am saving up for a gaming PC and it is right infront of me. However it is still short. I have to use the extension cable, which isn't braided like the headset's but the wire is still sturdy, it just worries me a little because of the connection.
