Packaging

For packaging SteelSeries stuck with the same design that they have been using on all of their recent products. This is still a big change from the original Siberia V2 packaging though. Before it was all black with a window showing off the headset inside. Now we don’t have the window but we have a large photo of the headset on the front. They went a little lighter with a white glow over the black and then put the product name in a nice LanOC orange, opps I mean a nice SteelSeries orange. On the back there is another photo of the headset, this time with lines highlighting a few of its key features. When you pull the main packaging off, inside you get bright orange box. On the sticker, beyond the normal stuff, they did include a small specification listing.

Inside the box the headset sits in a formed plastic tray to keep it from bouncing around. Under the headband is the cord extender. I will say when pulling this out I was a little frustrated. Both cords have the most amazing glue holding the bags to the packaging. I really had to fight with them to get it pulled away. Be sure to not pull on the cord to pull it off, I actually think you could cause damage to the cord if you did it this way.

Also included is a small user guide and also SteelSeries stickers. They changed the sticker design for the first time in a very long time. Now you get a white sticker on a clear plastic background that should look better on your PC/Car/whatever. The old design was the SteelSeries logo on a black paper like sticker that would never work outside, not to mention it wouldn’t go with anything.

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. :)
