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.

Mr. Jones Review
The Steel Series Siberia V2 headset is without a doubt in my mind, the best headset I've ever used, or even seen for that matter.
The V2's are extremely lightweight, and even more extremely comfortable. Now, if you looked closely at the picture you'll be able to see the microphone. Why is it so hard to see? Because it's retractable, and in that picture, it's in what I call "The I don't want to talk right now" mode. If you are a 360 gamer, don't fret. You can have this headset also. You just have to pay an extra twenty dollars for the 360 connector (or fifteen if you use the vVv discount code ) Alright, when I say these are comfortable. I'm not joking. I've been wearing mine since 8pm and it's 2:31am right now. I've took them off maybe three times, and that was for the bathroom. If you think these don't look comfortable, you don't know what comfortable looks like.
Update: I just watched a 4 hour movie on my laptop, wearing this headset the entire time. And they still feel damn comfortable. Just sayin'.
Excellent sound quality
Easy to use/setup
Retractable mic can be a little bit difficult to pull in and out, but this seems to be because it's new and needs to be broken in. So this will likely move up to the "Pros" list very soon.
Buy it, you won't regret it at all.
