Don't worry if the orange ring on the Steelseries Siberia Elite Prism headset turns you off as that is an LED which can be changed to one of 16.8 million colours which will shift or breath in time to your music. The headset has a frequency response of 16-28000 Hz and the unidirectional microphone is retractable for when it is not in use. The headset uses 3.5mm jacks and comes with adapters to allow you to plug it into a variety of mobile devices or into the USB soundcards which ships with the device when you are using it on a PC. The soundcard is not as good as a dedicated DAC but does add functionality to the headset as well. The noise cancellation will be appreciated in noisy environments but the headset is not for the completely antisocial as there is a 3.5mm jack on one earcup to allow a friend to plug in and share your music if you so desire.

SteelSeries Engine 3 makes configuration possible with a custom equalizer and many more…"
