Steelseries Siberia 200 Gaming Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
The Steelseries Siberia 200 Gaming Headset is available from Overclockers UK in a great range of colours, with prices being a very affordable £59.99. This is the same price as the V3, but given this is tuned more towards the eSports crowd with the closed back design, it’s really down to the user which model they think would be most suitable for their needs. Personally, I think they’re both great, so you can’t make a bad choice.
Steelseries continue to impress with their Siberia range, sure the core models such as the V2, V3 and now the V200 have very few differences, but that’s no bad thing. As the old saying goes “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”. Of course, those little changes to add up, and the new closed back design is going to bring tangible benefits for those gaming in a noisier environment, as it will help block a lot more ambient noise while also preventing a bit more sound from leaking from the drivers. If you need that feature, then fantastic, get the 200, but if you’re just after a great headset for home use, then you’ll be just as happy with the equally priced V3.
The mid-budget headset market is fiercely competitive these days, with new products hitting the market almost every month, but it’s reassuring to see that while all these new brands come and go, the Siberia has proven an award winner year after year for around a decade now. If a statistic like that doesn’t fill you with confidence, then very little else will. Steelseries have experimented with more expensive models of the Siberia, such as the Elite Prism, but none has proven as successful as these core models, as they balance the features, price, performance and design exceptionally well.
With a range of funky colours to choose from, a super comfortable fit, durable build quality that will stand up to be thrown in your backpack between uses and multiformat support, the Siberia 200 is easily one of the best value for money headsets on the market today. You don’t even have to be a pro gamer to enjoy all that it has to offer.
