I have never made a review like this before so I'm just going to jump right into the specs and pros and cons to the headset.

SteelSeries Siberia v2 Full-size Headset highlights:

- Closed type headphones
- Pull-out microphone
- Crystal clear high, low and mid-tones
- Lightweight suspension construction
- Integrated volume control located on the cord
- Has an extended cord so length is not an issue

Specifications for SteelSeries Siberia v2 Full-size Headset:


Headphones

- Frequency response: 10 - 28.000 Hz
- Impedance: 32 Ohm
- SPL@1kHz, 1Vrms: 112 dB
- Cable length: 1,0 m + 2,0 m = 3,0 m / 9,84 ft.
- Jack: 3,5 mm Microphone

- Frequency response: 50 - 16.000 Hz
- Pick up pattern: Uni-directional
- Sensitivity: -38 dB

What you will notice about this headset right when you put it on is its weight. To me its relatively light which is very comfortable while playing in game. I prefer light headsets over a more weighty headset like the Astros. The sound quality on the steelseries is very clear and is perfect for the people like to play FPS games. You can hear footsteps well and the background sound effects in every game. Another feature I love about the headset is its pull out microphone. I'm sure many others like myself like to eat while playing or between games. The microphone on most headsets stick out or are in the way. This pull out mic lets you push it in while you on the computer or are eating something. LoL. The headset also has a very long cord so that if your computer or xbox is far away, it wont be a problem to still use the headset. I have owned many headsets including Turtle Beaches, Astros, Trittons, and sennheisers but can confidently say that I prefer the steel series siberia v2s over them all.

Pros:
Great sound quality
Very comfortable
Looks good
Retractable mic
Mute button/volume control

Cons:
Mic fells a bit flimsy

Colors you can buy it in:
Red
Blue (limited amount)
Orange
White
Black

I've had a pair and they worked well but seemed to be lacking that bit extra that makes it as good as other headsets but is excellent value for money.
