SteelSeries Siberia V2 USB-Powered Headset – Frost Blue Edition Review
SteelSeries Siberia V2 USB-Powered Headset Review (Frost Blue Edition)
The Siberia V2 range of headsets from SteelSeries has proven to be successful and flexible since being introduced to the market. Following on from that original model we have seen SteelSeries rebrand and redesign the headset to suit different styles and organisations, add models suited to use with devices such as iPods and the range also received a USB model with virtual 7.1 audio capability but SteelSeries were not done there.
Today on our test bench we have the latest model of Siberia V2 headset. The Frost Blue USB Edition adds a new USB soundcard to the range as well as some headset lighting. In addition to testing that unit we will also take a quick look at the new purple and pink revisions with the latter aiming to benefit charity in its sales.
Packaging and Bundle
The Frost Blue Siberia V2 arrives in a box which uses the standard SteelSeries design ethic. A nice clear image can be found on the front with plenty of product information on the other sides and the lid flips open to reveal the headset suspended below a plastic window. Bundled with the headset we get a selection of documentation, sticker and a thick 6.5ft USB extension cable.
