On Monday, SteelSeries refreshed its Siberia series (opens in new tab) with next-generation headsets. There are four in this new batch, meeting the needs of every gamer looking for a quality audio product. These include the Siberia v3 ($99.99), the Siberia v3 Prism ($139.99), the Elite Prism ($199.99) and the RAW Prism ($59.99).
For starters, SteelSeries redesigned the audioscope in the Siberia v3 (opens in new tab) with next-generation audio drivers. This headset also consists of noise-reducing memory foam ear cushions, a “unique” new construction, a single-plug cable and a dual-jack extension. Serving as SteelSeries’ core headset, the Siberia v3 is available in black or white.
Next is the Siberia v3 Prism (opens in new tab), which builds upon the analog Siberia v3 and costs $40 more. This model is compatible with the SteelSeries Engine, which includes unlimited profile settings that can be saved via SteelSeries CloudSync, Microphone Auto Compression and Microphone Noise Suppression technologies, digital audio quality with a custom EQ and ColorShift illumination. With that last feature, owners can pick from 16.8 million color choices to light up their ears.
The Siberia Elite Prism (opens in new tab) is next in line, sporting a new, slimmer microphone and an upgraded sound card. This headset is the most expensive in the series, delivering Dolby Headphone and Dolby Pro Logic IIx technologies for virtual 7.1-channel surround. This unit also has customizable audio settings and illumination and a swappable cable system that allows the headphones to connect to PCs and mobile devices.
Finally we have the Siberia RAW Prism (opens in new tab), the company’s newcomer in the Siberia family that's designed with budget-tight customers in mind. With this headset, customers can customize and back up audio profiles and change the color of the illuminated ring on each ear cup. This model has a USB connector and a built-in microphone with Mic Auto Customization technology. The mic resides on the left ear cup along with a mic mute button.
These new headsets join the previous generation including the Siberia v2, the Siberia Elite, The Siberia Elite Anniversary and more. You can view the entire family here (opens in new tab).
