OC3D Review: Steelseries Siberia V2

The Steelseries Siberia was a great headset, but will the V2 be able to beat it?

I wish you guys had a review of the Razor Carcharias. I would like to see how these two compared to each other. The Cars also have an open-back design and I think they sound amazing. The difference between my friends Creative Fatal1ty headset and mine were night and day.

So since you don't have a review for them could you tell me how they compare? Or have you not used the Carcharias yet? Thanks!

We haven't got any on hand, nor have we tested any. Our reviews usually point out if there is an existing product that is vastly better or similar.

However, as the Carcharias are almost identical in design to the Megaladons, I think for music the Siberia V2 are better.

Neither are bad at all. The Siberia V2 are very very good.

Cool, thanks for the response. Looks like my Carcharias aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I also like the fact that mine have the braided cord and not the generic plastic/rubber cord. I do like the Steelseries mic set-up better though.

I love my Siberia V2s <3. But you guys made a mistake - they are closed back design, the Sv1s were open back. check out http://goo.gl/POVB. Its right there on the website and on the box!:0

"Closed type" is different to "closed back".

Closed type refers to ones that surround the ears. Please compare the Ozone Strato we recently reviewed to the Siberia.

Thanks anyway.

ok... do you mean the fact that your ear fits inside the cup? i wouldnt think this would be a mediocre thing as it leads to very high comfort. thanks for clarifying that closed type isnt closed back anyway - it was confusing.

Ok. Closed type = ear inside the cup. Not a mediocre because it's comfy.

Closed back = no mesh on the outside of the headphone. Like with the Zowie or SteelSeries Neckband we've previously reviewed. Closed back is a "tighter" sound and leaks less noise. Open back allows some of the audio to spill out of the headphones giving a airier and nicer sound, but meaning people around you can hear if the volume is loud.

Hope that's cleared things up.

Yes ok i understand what both mean now. But in the review it stated, under conclusion "Mediocre - Open back design". The steelseries siberia v2 has a closed back, and fits all around the ears aka closed type. I'm sorry if I sound like a fool right now :P just trying to clarify

It doesn't have a closed back, just like VonBlade said. It is a meshed back, which is considered an open-back design.
