Steelseries are one of the biggest names in the business and when it comes to peripherals they are one of the most popular choices for PC gamers. Sure they offer some incredible high-end solutions, but they also make some of the nicest and most stylish mid budget products on the market too and the Siberia V2 is easily their greatest product in terms of popularity.

The V2 has been out for a while now and while there are two editions available, both USB and 3.5mm edition there are seemingly dozens of limited editions and colour themes to choose from beyond that, such as the Kingston  HyperX edition we have here. While the design doesn’t change the performance, it does change the price and the rarity and exclusivity of each can mean £30 more or less at the checkout! The Kingston one is my favourite, it looks fantastic, it has the eSports vibe going for it with the Kingston HyperX Special Edition sponsor ship deal and its features and performance are near impossible to beat for this price range.

The headset features a high quality retractable microphone, one of the most comfortable headband designs on the market thanks to a spring mounted system, stylish and lightweight design and some wonderful drivers that sound impressive in games, movies and music alike.

The Siberia V2 is available from online retailers for around £70

    You seem to have forgotten or ignored Creative’s HS-1200, a wi-fi headset with great sound, exceptional mic, macro-ish buttons (control skype, VLC, Winamp, Mumble etc by using the pre-configured buttons as hot-key commands) and after many years of almost 16h/day use so I can hear the PC while my missus watches TV, etc, mine is still working fine.
    The only negative is that it can be a little tight on your head {or maybe my head is just huge}.

      actually, I did state that all the headsets I’ve included have been personally reviewed by myself, I’m not going to be above myself and recommend products I have never tested personally 🙂 I hope you can appreciate that, but thanks for the suggestion, keep em coming 🙂

        it’s fair that you should only review products that you (or a team or you) have personally tested, and I obviously missed the bit where you say that these are the best out of the ones you’ve tested… though if you’re going to use that qualifier you perhaps should list the ones that were not as good as those 5 so as not to discriminate against the untested headsets.
        Just a suggestion of course in the interest of fairness, openness and honesty – which I assume should be the basis of all journalism.

          Not really, anyone can get that list by filtering by price on Amazon lol. “Five best headsets and five other headsets that maybe ok for the same money” doesn’t really have the same ring to it. Was only intended to be some informal light Sunday reading that a conclusive master guide 🙂

          I may revisit the subject in a few months and take a more concise approach to it.

            I’m really confused now, did you reply to the correct post? Are you really saying that there’s an Amazon filter to show only the headsets that you’ve used in the past? I looked, but I couldn’t find it.

          • Avatar Peter Donnell says:

            pre morning coffee reply ftw. I perceived what you said as just other headsets under £100 in general 😀 In that case it’s called “filter by price” lol. don’t ask me how I came to that answer though, I may as well have read someone elses comment 😀

            Thanks for the feedback though.

    Razer, Logitech, and some other great brands were left out of this. Maybe do and update and write “Ten best pc headsets under 100”

    I’ve been using the Creative Fatal1ty headset for about 4 years now, about six months ago I had to get a new one as an incident while drinking left the right earphone cutting out when the cord wiggled. I think regular price it’s about fifty dollars and I have seen it for as little as twenty when on sale on newegg.

    At first I tried to replace it with a Corsair 1500, but upon receiving it the 50mm drives they advertised were more like mid volume tweeters. They had absolutely no mids or lows at all. I returned it and got another Fatal1ty. I also had a Logitech G35, I won in a contest playing World of Tanks, it sounded alright but for the price it still wasn’t as good sound wise and was only USB, so I sold it on Ebay.

    The new Tesoro Kυνέη Angel A1 7.1, now available, is coming at the price of 70/80€. You could think about a review.
    Thanks for the hard work !
