SteelSeries's next flagship headset is up for pre-order. Announced at Gamescom, the SteelSeries SIberia Elite
can now be pre-ordered for $199.99 from SteelSeries's store
It comes in both white and black, but it seems you can only pre-order the white one for now. This headset features 7.1 Dolby surround sound, a USB sound card, noise cancelling microphone, and glowing ear cups. For use in computers and tablets, the Siberia Elite looks like an awesome headset and I've used a few good ones from SteelSeries.
The Siberia Elite do look pretty comfortable to wear with a generous amount of cushioning on the ears and that headband works well from my experiences with the Siberia. You'll be able to adjust the sound by rotating the outer part of the ear cup, which is kind of cool.
I really can't wait to check these out as they look stylish and seem to have some good specs behind it.
