From the simplest of new products, namely Siberia Raw Prism, you can meet in our recent survey . Now it is the turn of talk about updating the legendary model that has gained popularity in a large number of players. So let’s see how good SteelSeries Siberia V3 and whether the latter has advantages over Siberia V2.
Comes in a typical gaming solution for the manufacturer carton with orange ends. Hiding inside the headset itself, documentation, two stickers and a 2-meter extension cable / adapter with 4-pin jack for two 3-pin microphone and headphone.
Appearance, quality of materials
SteelSeries Siberia V3 on your mind is a little “pumped” version Siberia V2, the only difference is in the details. Soft partition on the headband is now completely out of eco-leather, suede bottom without simulation, coverage changed embouchure holes on the outside of the bowls have changed along with the form, attachment to a headband bowls also undergone a change.
The rest of the models are very similar, at first glance they may even be confused. Fewer gloss design, mainly plastic mat predominates. Built to a high standard and nothing to complain about, no scratches and even more so.
The headset has a floating structure that allows you to take almost any position. Last important during gaming battles in gaming clubs, when you need to talk with the team and at the same time to hear what is happening in the game. Retractable adjustable elastic microphone adds convenience – it is always possible to make different shapes and lengths.
Headband consists of two components – dual external hard and soft inner holder. The soft part of the headband accepts any form of head and good fixed. Ear cushions are filled with a special foam that follows the shape of your head and provides good sound insulation. Siberia V3 can be used for hours, it really convenient.
How should sound gamer headset? What distinguishes gamer gaming headset from not? You also wonder these issues? Unfortunately, it’s a rhetorical question. We were promised a stunning high-quality sound thanks to the use of new speakers.
In the end we got oversaturated bass sound, with mediocre detail the rest of the frequency spectrum. Play and view modern blockbusters in SteelSeries Siberia V3 quite well – there is a certain atmosphere and there is a dive into the virtual world. But because of the dominance of low frequencies to listen to music very seriously, I want to quickly turn off the player. Although this solution may be to the taste of electronics enthusiasts, or just fans of bass.
In direct comparison with the SteelSeries Siberia V2, sounding news has deteriorated significantly in all respects, though Siberia V2 can not be considered a benchmark in sound. But here’s the sound insulation is at a high level, just put on the headphones, without connecting to the sound source as external noise goes by the wayside.
Connecting the microphone
SteelSeries Siberia V3 has a 1.2-meter cable with 4-pin mini Jack 3,5 mm and 2-meter extension cable / adapter for separate headphones and microphone. The developer claims that the headset can work with PC, Mac, mobile devices and PlayStation 4.
Quality omnidirectional microphone is average and his head enough to talk on Skype and communication in the game chats. To mute the microphone on the left cup provided slider.
Summing up, we have a compromise solution for a suggested price of $ 100. For this money, the headset will be hard to compete as other gaming headsets, as well as the usual full-size headphones. As the pros SteelSeries Siberia V3 is possible unless highlight classic ergonomics, appearance, retractable microphone and good sound insulation.
