Pretty long ass title since I’m really loving this gorgeous piece of gear right now, here is my gamer gear review of the SteelSeries Siberia V2 Full-Size Headset in Special Edition Purple. Because, yes, all my gamer gear has to be purple!
I was initially supposed to get the SteelSeries Siberia 200 in Sakura Purple but when we went over to Datablitz, this headset was available for purchase. It was a tough call but the purple won me over, HAHA.
The headset comes in a big black box that really doesn’t leave much to the imagination. There’s a nice plastic window that you can see into, so you know exactly what you’re getting. 🙂
The best part about the packaging, imho, is that it comes with a velveteen inner case that perfectly houses the headset. I totally love it. I’m a sucker for texture. LOL.
The truth is, no matter how you look at it, it’s a pretty spectacular piece of work! Plus, the color is the perfect shade of OMGluie purple!
I am also particularly fond of all the minute branding details that you can find in the headset.
But, surprise surprise, the SteelSeries Siberia V2 Full-Size Headset in Special Edition Purple isn’t just beautiful, it’s one bad ass mofo headset, too. And it boasts of the following specifications:
Now, I’m not an expert nor can I call myself an aficionado. You could call me a gaming headset virgin, this being my first official one, LOL. But I calls it as I sees it. And given this is my first one, I think I lucked out in terms of performance and aesthetic.
The sound quality is divine and the noise cancellation? Totally four thumbs up (including my big toes, okay). There are times that I’d just be playing my games and I wouldn’t even notice someone coming into my room or knocking on my door. Also, there are these tiny little sounds in the BGMs of the games I’m playing that I’ve never really noticed before. So, yeah, just wow. Good sound really makes for a different kind of gaming experience!
I haven’t heard anybody complaining about the microphone on the headset, too. I haven’t heard any positive or negative feedback from the people I play with online, especially when I’m on Discord, so I’m assuming it’s alright, haha!
Okay so, I’ve got a pretty tiny head. That’s why my major beef with headsets is how heavy they become, the longer you’ve been playing. And my ears are super sensitive, which is why I’ve never gotten myself a full-sized headset up to now. For the longest time, I’ve been using my iPhone’s mobile earphones (with the tiny microphone thingie) as my gaming headset. YES, blasphemy, I know! LOL!
But the great thing about the SteelSeries Siberia V2 is that, although it looks bulky, it isn’t as heavy & as cumbersome as it looks. The fact that it comes with two supporting head bands to balance the pressure and weight on your head and ears, makes it quite comfortable to wear. It only really hurts my ears (because of the weight) after, what, 8 hours of continuous gaming? And that’s because I’m sensitive. But seriously, guys, you need to take a break, too. 🙂
Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with what I purchased. The SteelSeries Siberia V2 in Special Edition Purple is available for Php 4,995 at Datablitz in limited quantities but I heard its newer iteration can be found in the SteelSeries Siberia 200 line, which is priced around Php 3,495, also at Datablitz. 🙂
P.S.: This headset review is solely my own thoughts and opinions, I shelled out for this headset and it is in no way sponsored. Hehe. Hope you enjoyed!
