Although primarily designed for gamers the Siberia Headphone is also compatible with iPods, handheld gaming platforms, MP3 Players and nearly every other portable media device.
With 40mm speakers providing a response from 18-28000Hz and a 40 Ohm impedance, these are very well equipped for the audiophile. A one meter cable, with a 1.8m extension ensures suitability for both portable devices and all your home systems.
US pricing has been set for the holiday season at $49.99 from Amazon, Newegg and many other sites, whilst the Siberia v2 Headset that comes complete with a retractable microphone is priced with the soundcard at $109.99 and without for $89.99.
Bruce Hawver, CEO of SteelSeries added :
We’re introducing the new headphone right before the holidays with the notion that high-quality, professional gaming gear can be offered at an affordable price for both novice gamers and pro-players. The Siberia Headphone rounds out our audio line-up as the opening level SteelSeries audio option for gamers who are looking to experience professional quality headphone technology.
Hot on the heels of this pricing information comes the release of the SteelSeries Adaptor. Designed for use with any PC headset such as the SteelSeries Siberia v2, the adaptor can be used with all 3.5mm devices such as the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Supplied in a modern glossy white, the adapter connects to the microphone in and audio out from any two plug headset so that users can utilise any headset with 3.5mm plugs such as the full product line of SteelSeries audio including the SteelSeries 5H v2, Siberia v2, Siberia Neckband, and Siberia In-Ear Headset.
SteelSeries CEO Bruce Hawver again :
With the ever increasing popularity of gaming and internet communication tools being accessible from beyond the home and onto multi-functional mobile devices, we wanted to provide our customers with the opportunity to use their audio gear no matter if they’re on their desktop PC at home or on the go with their mobile device.
The SteelSeries Adapter for mobile devices is available now at Newegg.com and Amazon.com for $14.99.
