Excerpt: USB Headset that will stand out from the crowd Today, I am reviewing the Siberia V2 Frost Blue from Steelseries. Now, I have in the past reviewed the Steelseries Siberia V2, so rather than rewriting the unchanged bits, I thought I would just copy them over and talk more about the bits that have changed! To start, here is what I originally wrote about the Siberia V2. All of the comments are still as valid now as they were then!
Conclusion: A couple of days of testing, and I’m simply in love with this headset. My only real disagreement with it was the colour scheme and long term comfort, but then again I’m not a fan of yellow and black because it reminds me of bees. I don’t like bees. The microphone is retractable, flexible and on a very sturdy cable so it doesn’t change position once it has been set. The sound quality is excellent all round, both the mic and actual audio provide clear and crisp feedback.
Pros: Comfortable, non-stick ear cups and head-band, Flexible, can be easily stretched and bent, Sturdy, high quality materials means it won’t break easily, Retractable mic, easy to hide and on a flexible cable for positioning
Cons: Slightly pricey at nearly £60, Uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Summary: In my last headset review I covered the stunning SteelSeries 7XB wireless headset, made for Xbox 360 gamers, so I couldn't leave PlayStation gamers without their very own headset solution. The SteelSeries Siberia v2 full-size headset fits the bill, and much more, so read on if you are on the look for a headset for your PlayStation 3 console, or even your Xbox 360 infact!
Pros: Comfortable and solid build quality, Good bass and treble suits many types of gaming, Multiplatform compatible

Excerpt: Multiformat Headset that delivers the goods. To some, this review will be familiar. The reason? I reviewed the Siberia V2 headset from Steelseries for PC about a year ago. To those people I apologise. You see, this is the same headset as I reviewed then, but with some very important additions. So, for the bits that have not changed. We still have the unique and infinitely comfortable design.
Pros: Live Mix is a great addition. Multiformat. Very Comfortable.
