SteelSeries has just released version 2 of its Headset named Siberia that delivers superior sound isolation, comfort, and design for Gamers and Audiophiles!
The first Siberia Headset was launched back in 2004 so 5 years have passed before we are introduced with Siberia v2. Siberia v2 sports an “invisible” retractable microphone system that pulls out from the left-ear cup which is a cool thing! Often we get annoyed by the pesky microphone on our headsets!
Siberia v2 new 50mm speakers will ampliffy the bass and overall volume as well as improve the frequency response to 10-28,000 Hz. If you don’t really understand the mumbo-jumbo, suffice to say that Siberia v2 is optimized for professional gaming and provides a crystal clear sound which is important for multiplayer gaming, especially FPS games.
Bruce Hawver, CEO of SteelSeries, said:
Every element of the Siberia v2 has been optimized for pro-gaming, making this headset a preferred piece of equipment for the world’s best competitive PC gamers. What’s even more impressive is that the headset is multifunctional with its ability to deliver an unparalleled audio experience for music lovers and VOIP users.
