SteelSeries released the latest evolution in their SteelSeries Siberia line of headsets today. The SteelSeries Siberia Elite is the first in the series to feature 7.1 surround sound through Dolby’s virtualization technology. Additionally, the headphones sport over size memory foam ear cushions to add another dimension of comfort with the Sibera’s iconic suspension design. The volume and microphone controls are located on dials built into the earcup. The LEDs inside the ear cups can also produce 16.8 million different colours to suit every user’s needs. The drivers powering the Siberia Elite are the highest quality used in the line to date. The microphone is an active noise cancelling microphone that stows inside the headset when not in use.
The release of the SteelSeries Siberia Elite also brings the SteelSeries Engine 3. The engine has been completely rebuilt from scratch to provide customization. Different equalizer profiles can be saved for different games. Players can use a profile tuned to accentuate the sound of footsteps in Call of Duty while having a head rattling bass heavy profile for their favourite action movies. The SteelSeries Siberia Elite is now available for $299.99 AUD only and in stores everywhere.
