These headsets will be ideal for those who’re looking for multi-platform game sound and chat in the same headset, which is currently only possible through third-party headsets like these. The V2 Siberias will feature noise reduction features, in-line volume control and a retractable microphone. Check out the specs below:

Headphones

  • Frequency response: 18 – 28.000 Hz
  • Impedance: 32 Ohm
  • SPL@ 1kHz, 1 Vrms: 112 dB
  • Cable length: 1 + 2 = 3 m (9,8 ft.)
  • Jacks: 3.5 mm

Microphone

  • Frequency response: 50 – 16.000 Hz
  • Pick up pattern: Uni-directional
  • Sensitivity: -38 dB

The Steelseries Siberia V2 will be available in Q3 2011 in a host of colours and is priced at $199 (Rs. 9,000) and 199 Euro (Rs. 12,500). Considering most Steelseries products make it to India, we’re hoping these headsets make it here too.
