The tech geek in me loved hearing about the new SteelSeries Siberia V3 while the developing grumpy old man in me was a little concerned. I have learned over the years that sometimes a launch like this can be an amazing thing and other times companies change things just to change things and they end up messing up something that was great in the first place. You see, the original Siberia was good, but had many flaws. When SteelSeries introduced the Siberia V2 I was seriously amazed. They really stepped things up. Heck, I’ve been using the V2 with both the office and also with my LAN rigs for a few years now. Now with the introduction of the Siberia V3, will this model be a requirement in the office as well? I sure hope so, but improving on the Siberia V2 will be a tall order.  Let’s take a look to see what has changed to determine that!

The Siberia V2 is an extremely popular headset at our events and the V3 has been a long time coming. Today I finally have the chance to check it out and see if it lives up to the high standards that the Siberia V2 set.

Hello!
First of all, just discovered this page and I like it.. :) Thanks for the detailed reviews with personal comments on all the little things along with the more obvious stuff. (I also love the fact that you test your headsets on both big head and small head use-cases. :laugh: Definitely relevant for me+bf.)

I checked out the review both on this V3 and on the Elite Prism since I absolutely love my V2 and been using it for years, sometimes for full-day gaming without much of a break.
So, I was happy to see you comparing the V2 and V3 but what I missed is some words about how the V3 compares to the Elite Prism. Comfortwise and audiowise is what I'm curious about!

Hey there, thanks for the kind words. I'm a little swamped trying to catch up after a busy holiday week so I can't go to in depth. But the short version. They are both nice headsets. While I do like a lot about the Elite Prism, its comfort/performance isn't a huge improvement over the v3's. When you consider how much more they cost I don't think its really worth the additional cost.

What you do get with the Elite Prism over the v3 is the tangle free cable, built in volume controls, and they use a little higher quality materials (aluminum headband, softer leather on earcups).

Thanks a lot for the really quick reply!
I was worried it might actually be *less* comfy or have less good sound, but then I guess it's more a question of how much the little bit of extra comfort is worth to me. That plus the little things like the volume control and the cool looks might actually win me over in the end - will see. :D
Thanks a lot for the info! Very helpful. :)
