I've been using a SteelSeries Siberia (there's a newer version than this one but this is what I use) for a couple years now. Never had any of my friends complain about the sound quality. It took a bit of breaking in but was never painful and is very comfortable now. I also personally need the ear parts to completely cover my ears or they'll push my earrings into the side of my head and these filled that requirement. After a couple years of owning them and using them constantly the only wear and tear I see on them is some small bits of the leather ear parts coming off.
The Siberia Ice Mats v2 are a really good start. They've been around for a long time and are reasonably priced. I've never used the v3's but have heard negative things about them, so I'd stick with the v2's.
Honestly I can't recommend to you any good USB headsets, but if you're willing to overlook that part then I recommend the Siberia V2 by Steelseries.
I have the CSGO version which sells on the valve shop for $100 but on amazon you can get a plain black pair for $50. I've had the headset for 4-5 years and they still work perfectly and I can wear them for 16 hours straight lmao (and I do actually do that, sadly).
Another plus is that it has a built in mic which can retract into the headset if you want it gone, it's also bendy so you can move it closer or farther from your mouth so you don't sound like one of those fucking people breathing into their mics and shit. Sound is good, bla bla bla. Anyways, just take a looksie here.
^ Boyfriend has owned his pair for ~4 years and they're still going strong. He's always sounded fine in streams and voice chat programs I thought.
I bought a set just a few weeks ago since I liked his so much to go with my new desktop. No complaints from people on Skype/ Mumble/ Curse/ etc. on how I sound and I think they are pretty snazzy for the pricepoint.
.... it also helps it looks amazing with my white case.
Over speakers en zo weet ik eigenlijk niks, behalve dat je goedkoper goede geluidskwaliteit kan krijgen met een koptelefoon dan met speakers.
Als je bedoelt ingebouwde surround sound voor koptelefoons met meerdere drivers erin (zoals de Steelseries Siberia V2), doe het niet. Omdat ze zoveel kleine speakertjes erin proppen neemt de geluidskwaliteit enorm af. Met software kun je ook een soort surround sound-effect krijgen, maar dat zorgt ook voor een afname in geluidskwaliteit.
Zelf vindt ik dat surround-sound in koptelefoons (van deze prijsniveau tenminste) echt niet nodig is. Ik heb onder andere heel veel Titanfall gespeeld met mijn ATH-M30s aan en kon goed horen of iets aan mijn rechter- of linkerkant gebeurde bijvoorbeeld. Ook kun je met een koptelefoon beter muziek luisteren dan met een headset (wegens de eerdergenoemde geluidskwaliteitafname, heel veel headsets hebben ingebouwde surround sound met kleine drivers).
Maar zoals ik al eerder zei, ik ben lang geen expert. Mijn koptelefoon en microfoon combo was een goede oplossing voor mijn probleem (40% gamen op PC, 60% muziek luisteren), dus Google is jouw beste vriend hier: je bent lang niet de eerste met zo'n probleem.
Side note: if I misinterpreted your username and you're not actually Dutch, let me know and I'll edit this to English.
well.. I use a steelseries siberia v2 that is 50 bucks right now and it honestly feels and works great as a headset, but it does have a good mic so idk. I have never had an issue with it and I would honestly rate it 10/10 as a headset, and 8/10 as a mic. It has a retractable mic and mute feature so if you never wanted to use it you could always have it just in case.
Based on the first twenty seconds of that vid, I don't think you'll have a hard time getting what you want - it's really pretty average. You can hear a fair bit of background noise (although it may be intended for atmosphere) and their voices are a bit overblown.
I've heard decent things about the SteelSeries Siberia, and I believe the company is pretty standard among pro gaming.
I don't know if you'll be able to avoid picking up a barking dog or not, but you could give it a shot. This may be one of those things where you have to try a few to find what you need.
Once again your flair seems to be lacking of the tidehunter. You are truly a monster I don't even know you anymore. As for headphones I'm not a fan of the mic + headphone set up because I don't like clutter on my desk. I picked these up last year and they've been really solid [link]
SteelSeries Siberia v2 Full-Size Headset weiß
Sennheiser PCV05 Combo Audio Adapter für PC Gaming Headsets
That's how I run it.
This headset is insanely comfortable and has really good quality.
I buy those for like the past 5-6 years or so.
And those will def. fit the size of my head? Those first one's look nice for the price but the head thing has been a big one for me. I forgot to put down the two I ordered that didn't work out for me but here they are;
First pair are like a good inch from being totally comfortable on my head and the second pair I had to wear with the band under my chin in order to get clearance. :(
Upgrading from Steel series siberia v2 should I go for HyperX Cloud II or Logitech G633?
Hello, currently looking for headphones that come with a microphone attached to it and have a split 3.5mm audio and microphone cable like these have: SteelSeries Siberia v2. Of course, I want better quality and comfort than those.
Isolation: Using at home. More isolation would be better.
Not using in public
Preferred type: Cover the ear
Tonal Balance: I like bass but not enough that it drowns out the music.
Past headphones: I am currently using SteelSeries Siberia v2. They are starting to hurt on my ear after wearing them for about 3 hours. The microphone quality has also dropped.
Improve: I still want a headset that comes with a microphone attached to it. Better sound quality than the my current headphones would be amazing. I bought those for $50 so I'm hoping spending $100 will give me better quality. I was looking at these to purchase: HyperX Cloud II but I'm not sure. They don't have to be gaming headphones.
Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
Connected via jack to the pc. The headphones is a Siberia V2 [link]
Siberia V2 [link]
Prior to those I had Steelseries Siberias. Very popular and good budget set.
Budget: $40usd hard limit
Source: PC (board specs) and occasionally via my phone.
Requirements for Isolation: At home, don't wanna disturb parents sleeping upstairs though.
Will you be using these Headphones in Public?: Rarely, if ever.
Preferred Type of Headphone: Full-Sized, Circumaural, wired, active.
Past headphones: SteelSeries Siberia V2 - I don't game anymore however, and my interests have shifted more towards higher audio quality (without a need for a mic for example).
Preferred tonal balance: Not sure about this one..I'm guessing neutral/balanced?
Preferred Music: Vocal/progressive trance, alternative rock, hard rock, and occasionally classical.
What would you like to improve on from your set-up: I'd like a taste of the audiophile life, and if possible, detachable cables :)
[$40] Sentey Thorx LS-4430 HD - these are relatively new in the market and seem well designed (detachable tangle-free cords, finish, etc) and have good reviews. I was about to hit buy until I saw the specs and got a bit worried about the "high" THD (1.5%)
[$40] Edifier H840
[$40] JVC HARX700
[$34] Sennheiser HD 429

Which one should I get (with your experience/reasoning)? Am I missing any other great ones?
Buy the this headset:
I buy those for like 5-6 years or so.
Hate to break it to you.. but these are always on amazon for ~~50~~ 45-60 bucks...
Still! I have them and they are very good, worth the price.
I have the same one in black and it's great.
ty:) I was trying to decide between these two personally
[link] + zalman mic
do you think the audio technica will be worth the extra 30$ all together? And do you know if that model is ok? Im not a huge stickler on sound quality as much as i am about comfort
These seem like they would be good for people with big heads. I think your best bet will to go around and try some on.
is this the one u speak of [link]?
Budget around £90
I've been looking into getting a headset and I was either going to get the SteelSeries Serbia V2 or the Hyperx Cloud but i got recommended this and this but are these truly going to be better than just getting a headset?
so if you are streaming I could have sworn a nice CPU with more cores eases the strain on your PC, as well as 16gb of memory over 8gb. Will wait for someone here who streams to back me up on that statement, but I am pretty sure the CPU and memory available made a significant difference.
The GPU is solid, nothing spectacular but a well respected GPU that should be fine gaming at 1080p with most things turned all the way up.
So now you fall into this weird position of what is more important to you; streaming well or maxing all games and potentially pushing 1440 or 4k. IMO I would look into the CPU and Mobo upgrade, which will probably get some hate on here but hear me out first.
New GPUs are always around the corner, but with the 390x looming in the future I think holding off on the GPU is actually the smarter move right now, while you save and wait to get the hottest one once it drops. The CPU market is stable(er) at the moment since I doubt we are going to be seeing any game-changing releases as far as gaming performance goes in the near future. Upgrading the CPU tho will give you a nice performance benefit for streaming tho which you will notice right away, compared to the GPU upgrade which you will notice but maybe not as much so as the CPU (I'm really focusing on the streaming aspect, so if you only do it a little bit ignore all this and go GPU).
As for mic, it really depends on how important steaming quality is for you. If it is a must, I can't remember off hand anything better than the Blu Snowball before we get into kind of stupid prices. Best mic for the money, or was at the time of me considering one. If you need it to be a headset, I can say I absolutely LOVE my brother's Siberia V2's. Think there is even a new version out so look for that. Open-back, stupidly comfortable, a retractable mic, and just great quality overall.
Hello, I'm looking for a gaming headset with a microphone. I have a combined microphone/audio 3.5mm port, so I can't do dual jacks. I have been looking at these: Steelseries Siberia v2 Full-Size Gaming Headset and the SteelSeries Siberia RAW Prism Gaming Headset.
I'm leaning towards the Siberia v2 but I can't find if it has a combined 3.5mm cable or not. The Frostblue USB one is over my budget. I heard the RAW version has a bad microphone.
Thank you for your time!
I would suggest the Icemat Siberia v2
These. Make sure it comes with the USB cable though.
These ones are pretty much a clone of the Steelseries Siberia V2's.
More like $56. Lowest is $40.
Definitely buy the Steelseries Siberia V2. Amazing headset for a price of $50
$52 shipped for me. I also ship with USPS priority so you'd be getting it in 2 days.
Yes. I also HIGHLY recommend this
The Steelseries Siberia V2 are brilliant, and they're currently on sale. Less than $100 but certainly that level of quality, and hey, who doesn't like saving money?
I've recently just begun listening to a lot more music. I have this gaming headset, but when listening to music the sound falls a little flat. I know that gaming headsets are a lot less bang-for-your-buck in terms of sound quality, so I was wondering if someone could recommend a set of headphones in the ~$40 price range that have a richer sound than this headset. I would use them mostly on my desktop, and sometimes on my phone. The types of music I listen to include:
EDM/dubstep, reggae, punk rock, ska, and some acoustic coffee-house type stuff.
I'm just looking for any good, cheap pair of headphones that can provide a rich, deep music experience. Thanks!
go for this
> Steel Series SIberia v2
its a bit over 50 but its awesome, you will be glad to have it! - trust me
I love my Siberia V2 headset of SteelSeries. They look nice, have a great mic, great speakers (in relation to other "Gaming" headsets out there), look nice, and are right in your price range.
I have the white ones which are a bit more expensive atm, but the Black ones are under $75.
The best setup is awesome headphones (we're talking expensive though), and an attachable mic, but I think the Siberia v2s are good enough for anyone who isn't an audiophile.
I know that that the SteelSeries Siberia V2 is a quality headset. Apparently it's really comfortable and has good sound for footsteps etc whilst games. They can be found here. It comes in different colours too, and I especially like the frost blue set due to the light on each ear.
A mic test can be found here. All audio recorded on that video is using the headset's mic. It's pretty damn good.
How would these headphones compare with the other headphones in terms of sound quality? And for gaming, comfort (i guess) is fairly important.
