SteelSeries Siberia 350 Headset Review

SteelSeries Siberia 350 Overview

The Siberia 350 looks similar to the Siberias of the past – it’s a dead ringer for the Siberia v3 Prism, in fact. Let’s dig in and see what this new version has to offer.

The box hides the actual headset from view – the only glimpse you’ll see of the Siberia 350 before you open the package is the product photos on the box.

Thankfully, the main details are accurately depicted through the features listed on the box (front and back). Unlike many other peripherals, I’ve yet to see a headset box allow for any sort of “try before you buy” – these are the details you’ll want to know before purchasing, and SteelSeries does a good job of highlighting each feature of the Siberia 350 despite not being able to see the headset itself before you open the box.

The headset itself is secured in a plastic formed insert – it looks like this particular insert does double duty for other SteelSeries headset models, as there are pockets for items not included with this headset (no, you haven’t lost anything). A small manual and some warranty information (and stickers!) are the only items included with the Siberia 350.

Overall, the headset seems to be well-protected, and should make its way to you without incident.

The design of the suspension headband, brought forward from previous Siberias, means the 350 will comfortably fit a wide range of head shapes, big or small. I’m not sure how they managed it, but the “clamping” force seems to be perfect – not so loose that they’re in danger of falling off, but not so tight that they’ll be uncomfortable.

A retractable microphone and mute switch (located on the left earcup) allow for easy communication – the microphone slides easily in and out, and doesn’t initially feel like it will cause any problems mechanically with extended use.
