Conclusion and Verdict
In conclusion, For as many accessories and the difficulty of setting up a wireless headset, SteelSeries has done a bang up job on making the process as seamless as possible. In all honestly all you do is plug the correct cords in and set a profile for the new device and you are ready to go. 5 minutes tops for each device even if you are new to the process. The transmitter is sleek and stylish. The headphones are absolutely stunning.
NOW the big and most important question comfort level. Well, if you compare these to the suspension headband they get beat by a mile. Keep in mind the most comfortable headset I have ever worn, were the V3 prism. I am not saying these will destroy your head but by just comparing to the most comfortable headset available, these are average on comfort. One thing I did was stretched the plastic over night. I simply used the box and placed the earcups over the sides of the box and let them sit. This process helped in taking the Squeeze out of the new plastic. The sound deliveries high quality lows and highs. The Dolby 7.1 makes everything awesome. You will hear things you have never recognized before.
The Siberia 800 is a higher prices headset. When you think about this headset covers every device you may have. The sound is great and the comfort is decent. The compatibility is off the charts and the wireless range will offer you up to 30′ in distance with ease. The Siberia 800 is an Elite Headset and a great investment if you are looking for a headset that will be compatible with everything you own. Plus you just look good when you are wearing these!
The SteelSeries Siberia 800 can be found at SteelSeries and other various e-tailers for $300 USD.
