With the overwhelming amount of modern games relying upon their multiplayer aspect it's naturally important to have great communications between the players. Anyone who's spent any time at all using the XBOX 360s truly terrible supplied headset, or spent an age browsing through potential PS3 headsets will know how important it is to have an audio solution that enables you to clearly differentiate between your team-mates and the game sounds.
Unfortunately this desire for clarity of communication also means that you've probably got more than one headset lurking about. A headset for the PC for either Skype or gaming, one for the PS3 and one for the XBOX 360. Online gaming is nothing if not an expensive hobby.
What we really could do with is a headset that's good quality, but also is compatible across the board so that you only need to purchase one and you're done.
Enter the SteelSeries Siberia V2 for PS3. Whilst the 'for PS3' bit naturally differentiates this particular model from the other Siberia V2s in the SteelSeries line-up it's actually, thanks to some clever thinking and attention to detail, compatible with just about anything you can think of.
All the quality of the brilliant Siberia V2 headset and compatible with everything we throw at it? Sounds like it's Manna from Heaven. Or is it destined to stick in the throat?
The specifications of the Siberia V2 for PS3 are exactly what we'd expect them to be. We've got a stock Siberia V2 headset and a smart connectivity solution. The main thing to take notice of is the enormous cable length of the Mixer. Unless you live in a corridor there will be plenty of cable to reach from the TV to your ears.
