I had heard of Steelseries but I never really thought much about what they were like as peripherals until I went to Blizzcon. I remember that whilst Lushnek, Hyad, Balinar, Pel and I were playing Warlords of Draenor I put on the headset and I was REALLY impressed by it. I forgot to look at what it was - it was super comfy though! - but all I remember is that it was white. I didn't see a mic on it so I thought it was just the headset. After that I thought about getting a Steelseries headset.
Then today when I thought I would look it up to see what they cost, I saw this:
Thats right, this headset was called a Navi headset. And it's in bright colours. And it's Limited Edition. The Siberia Elite was shown at Blizzcon (which goes for $238 from centre.com). The Navi is a Siberia V2.
Damn, I should have gotten a Steelseries when I was at Blizzcon - you could get it 30% off! Could have brought it home and sold it!
Shab recently bought a new headset, and it was a Steelseries. However, his mic is horrible! He said that the headset is a bit tight so I'm not sure if he likes it or not. I wonder, is there anyone else out there who uses a Steelseries?
It would be ridiculously superficial of me to buy a headset because it has my toon's name on it, and it's got pretty colours. But I have to say, it's tempting. It's not that expensive either - it's going for about $70 on Ebay. That's a hell of a lot cheaper than a Sennheiser PC 360 (which is going for $166 at eglobal, but up to $300 everywhere else) which in my opinion is a king of a headset.
I already have a reasonable headset, I'm using the Logitech G930 which can be corded or cordless so I can walk to the kitchen (and heaven forbid, the toilet - just have to make sure I've muted the mic just in case I have open mic on!) and still hear what's going on and run back in time if I hear a queue pop or if someone is back from AFK.
I'd love to hear what headsets people use! Post a reply to let me know what's gracing your ears and what you love or don't love about it!
