SteelSeries Sibera V2 Frost Edition First

We have, with ourselves, the Siberia V2 Frost Blue USB Edition. This special edition combines the same award winning Siberia V2 headset with adjustable Frost Blue Illumination and a built-in USB stereo sound processor. This white color headset glows with a soft blue light from the ear cups giving it a unique sleek look. It features the comfort and quality of its predecessor but has the 3.5mm jack replaced with a USB connector.

Siberia V2 is a closed type headset that features 50mm drivers giving frequency response of 18Hz – 28000Hz on impedance of 40 ohms and sensitivity of 112dB at 1 KHz. 16 LEDs are responsible for a uniform illumination in each ear cup and these LEDs can function in 6 different modes. It also has a retractable microphone housed in the left ear cup that remains completed hidden when not in use. The USB connector allows for excellent connectivity out of the box. Furthermore, the SteelSeries Engine software provides customization for equalizer and illumination patterns. It is available for both PC and Mac.
