SteelSeries Siberia V2 for PS3
Published: 26th July 2011 | Source: SteelSeries | Price: £90 |
The Siberia V2 for PS3 comes in the standard SteelSeries box which is always one of our favourites. The minimalism of the colour scheme and the clear, concise information panels lend an air of class to proceedings. First impressions are important and the Siberia V2 for PS3 definitely gives us a good first impression.
Despite being compatible with a raft of systems we have don't open the box to find more wires than a telephone exchange, rather there is the main LiveMix connector itself and a couple of peripheral cables should you require them. The headset itself is well sheltered in the protective 'furry' plastic so it will arrive unmarked.
The LiveMix Connector
Despite the potential complexity of a multi-purpose connection solution SteelSeries have really refined their LiveMix adaptor and so, despite being able to be plugged into anything, this is pretty much it as far as connection goes. The USB goes into your PS3 (or PC or Mac or XBOX 360) and you plug the headphones into the other end. Simplicity itself.
The LiveMix has all the adjustments you could desire. On the top is a large microphone mute switch for those moments when you wish to compliment your team-mate on throwing a flashbang at your feet without upsetting them.
Aside from that there are volume adjustments for the game and the voice, and on the end we have the two 3.5mm jacks for the headset itself and a 2.5mm jack for the XBOX 360 connection to the pad.
