Today I will be reviewing the SteelSeries Siberia v3 Prism Gaming Headset. I recently reviewed the v3 from SteelSeries and the v3 Prism is just a little higher on the scale of options and luxuries. The main noticiable differences are the USB cable rather than 3.5mm input, 16.8 million illumination and color differences of the frame. Great audio can make any visual experience that much better. For many of us, out of courtesy, we are unable to unleash the full surround sound system. This is why a great headset is necessary. When you find a headset that delivers rich deep sounding bass, excellent highs, and no distortion; you will disappear into an ideal audiophile world. One of the biggest complaints about headsets can be that after wearing them for a while, they begin to make your ears ache, compresses your head to much, or being too heavy. I will test these areas in detail while I put the Siberia v3 Prism Gaming Headset by SteelSeries through the gauntlet.
The Siberia brand has been the standard in high-end gaming audio for over 10 years. The original SteelSeries Siberia (v1) became famous for its lasting comfort and impressive audio performance. The highly-regarded follow-up, the Siberia v2, became the number one PC gaming headset in the world. We knew the sequel would have to be an outstanding headset. “The Siberia v3 Prism delivers.”
Let us continue this review and see if what SteelSeries claims stands true and firm.
I would like to thank SteelSeries for providing this review sample! Let us see what they have to say about themselves on their website:

What is the Siberia Challenge?
We believe Siberia is the best gaming headset on the planet. The Siberia Challenge is our global mission to invite gamers to put us to the test.
In this video, Ignite Gaming Lounge asked gamers to participate in a blindfolded test between two headsets. They asked them which one they preferred, and a film crew captured the results. The gamers never knew it was SteelSeries behind the challenge – just to keep things fair.
Watch the results below and check back for more to come.
|From day one, SteelSeries has been focused on making high performance gaming gear used by the most demanding, top professional gamers worldwide and peripherals that provide superior quality and a competitive edge to gamers of all skill levels. We believe, as most gamers do, in winning, not trying! What originally began with two people who recognized the need for superior, high-quality/performance gaming gear that would give gamers a competitive edge, has grown into a global leader in gaming and entertainment gear sought after for their high performance capabilities.|
Fast-forward to today, and we’ve come a long way since our first glass mousepad. We have global offices in North America, Europe, and Asia, providing an integrated portfolio of products designed specifically for gaming. Fueling our growth is you, the gamer! While we are proud of our technology and product innovation, we are even more excited about how these products are developed to meet the needs of gamers. Many companies may claim to develop superior gaming products but few actually do. Instead, they spend countless hours with lab engineers trying to force fit a new technology with bells and whistles and mediocre functionality for the end-user. At SteelSeries, we develop our products with a small internal team and a vast network of technology partners, channel partners, game publishers, and gaming communities around the globe. We aren’t afraid of being challenged and implementing new ideas.
Our main goal is to always to listen to the collective feedback of our professional gaming community. We won’t bore you with cheeky slogans, trying to underline our authenticity as gamers. We fully acknowledge that the best professional gamers in the world know more about what they want and what will make them better, than we do. We are proud to be working with our partners, but we can’t take credit for their invaluable input and feedback. Instead we tell it like it is: they help us. We want to know what works and what doesn’t. For this reason, SteelSeries creates innovative solutions that provide a competitive advantage for all gamers. Critical to our company’s success is also our reinvestment in the gaming communities and the individuals who support them. As a result, our corporate philosophy is to take a substantial portion of our revenue and put it back into the gaming community to help spur industry growth. We support our community in numerous ways, ranging from co-hosting tournaments like Iron Lady and King of the Hill, and supporting gaming competitions of all sizes, to promoting the top and up-and-coming gaming teams/organizations. Put simply, SteelSeries does not claim to invent or reinvent the gaming industry. Nor do we focus on one specific product, copy other companies or follow the crowd. Instead we leave it to you, the gamer, our customer/partner/inspiration, to decide if we are deserving of such declarations and accolades. What we do promise, however, is to remain committed to you. We will continue to work with you and the gaming community to make the best products possible and give you that competitive edge. We will continue to do our best to support the growth of the professional gaming industry and give back to the gaming communities. By doing so, we don’t just talk a good game, we win!
Thank you, The SteelSeries Team
