SteelSeries is definitely one of the more active companies at CES this year, having brought along a sizable product portfolio for visitors to gush over.
One of the items found at its booth is the Siberia v2 Frost Blue headset, a product that puts quite a bit of stock on appearances.
In fact, it puts so much stock on appearances that it even has blue LED lights.
The LEDs are built into the headset in such a way that the blue glow shines forth through the outer mesh grill on each earcup.
That said, SteelSeries chose 50mm driver units and 6 different illumination modes, each possible to assign to behavior and game specific profiles.
The SteelSeries Engine is the application tasked with keeping track of the various modes: Active Mode (responds to pulsing sound effects, music and/or voice), Slow Pulse, Fast Pulse, High Bright, Low Bright and Off.
“The Siberia v2 Frost Blue combine’s incredible sound with a style that is not only recognized, but is an original design that’s been optimized and improved,” says Jacob Wolff-Petersen, SteelSeries founder.
“This headset packs a loud and crisp soundscape with the expected luxury for the user to be able to adjust everything – from illumination options, equalizer settings to creating and assigning profiles for multiple game titles and players, all through the SteelSeries Engine software.”
The Siberia v2 Frost Blue Headset is lightweight and uses circumaural earcups covered by grey leather cushions.
Finally, buyers will get to enjoy the comfort of an over-the-head suspension design and a noise-cancelling microphone as well.
Sales are set to begin at some point during the second quarter of the year (Q2, 2012). Alas, the price has not been mentioned yet.
