Impulse Gamer has been having a
SteelSeries review boom at present and we just recently reviewed
the Sensei Pro Grade Laser Mouse and we're just finishing
up the Apex Gaming Keyboard so keep an eye out for that
To compliment this performance
driven gaming duo, we've also had the opportunity of reviewing
the Siberia v2 Full Size Headset which could be
considered the crown when it comes to gaming. The Siberia v2
also comes in a variety of colours that include black
(reviewed), orange, green, red, purple, pink, black/gold, white
and blue. There's a colour for everyone!

The first thing that you notice
about the Siberia v2 is the professional build of the headset.
The build model of the Siberia is quite sturdy and it actually
looks a little cooler than most military inspired gaming
headsets. When snugly fitted on your head, the Siberia is not
tight and of course can be adjusted for your head.
What I liked about the cups is that
after a heavy session of gaming, your ears don't get sore,
thanks to the cushioning and after awhile, you almost forget
that you're actually wearing something on your head. Given that,
the Siberia are extremely light for a headset of this size. The
ear cups also boast noise reducing foam which definitely dampens
background noise thanks to the closed design of the headset.
When it comes to sound quality, the Siberia V2 produces some
exceptionally quality with even levels, good bass that is
capable of accurately producing sounds on a variety of different
mediums from music to video and of course gaming. This is due to
the onboard quality driver units of 55mm which produces some
great sound quality and some faux 7.1 Surround Sound.
With most gaming headsets, the
microphone is retractable and can be easily moved into the right
position when necessary. However the microphone is actually
hidden in the left ear cup which is a nifty feature. The quality
of the microphone is above average than other gaming headsets
but provided your opponents can hear you is all that matters, so
it's really a moot point. Volume control and microphone is also
incorporated into the cable for easy access.
The SteelSeries Siberia v2 is one of the better gaming headsets
that reviewed that not only boasts exceptional quality but is
quite solid and extremely lightweight at the same time. It even
comes with an interchangeable cable that is ideal for laptop
users. With decent sound quality, your gaming experience just
got better and hopefully this will give you the edge in games
such as Battlefield 3 or World of Warcraft as the enemy is
trying to sneak up on you.
