Summary: And that, sadly is my only complaint. I was perfectly content with the fit, weight, sound quality and look. I really quite liked them until I had to give and interview over skype adn found the mic to be shot. Pretty significant downside for a so-called gaming headset.
Frost Blue version is much worse than its predecessors

Summary: I've used Steelseries Siberia v2s for the past 3 years, and I have greatly enjoyed nearly every aspect of the headsets. The mic quality of the Siberia series is generally quite amazing. The fit of the headphones on your head and the audio in gaming has been perfect for my usage as a competitive FPS gamer and caster.
Summary: After reading reviews on here and on a few techy sites, I believed I'd be getting a good quality set of headphones, with few if any real issues. After unboxing the headphones, I was briefly surprised and delighted by the detachable wire-extensions, as I have a sound/mic output socket right on my desk and this would allow me to remove a lot of dangling cable, but after plugging it in and trying the headphones on I was quickly disappointed in quick succession.
Summary: >sound quality is very good >good noise cancellation >comfortable enough provided you don't wear them for too long However: >after extended periods of time the ear pads become very uncomfortable, you obviously tend not to notice this if you're focused on gaming but in between games or when watching a movie etc it can be quite bad. >The metal wires connecting the head strap to the ear pads broke 8 months after I bought it, hence the 2 stars, otherwise I would give it 4.
Summary: I will note the sound quality seems to be 3–4 / 5 The microphone in my headset is either faulty or this is a rubbish headset.
I've used this solidly for a few sessions and I can say this is the worst
headset I've ever owned. The main problem is the microphone. I had to
“jimmy” up all the max settings to get it work and it sounds crackly and
I constantly get complaints about the quality. I've tried multiple settings and
still no luck.
