Gaming Headset Shootout – SteelSeries Siberia Elite vs Sennheiser G4ME ZERO (Video)
May 26,2014 0 Comments
When it comes to headsets, we are extremely fortunate to have all the options we have, in all shapes and sizes, to fit all different head types, in all different price points. But when you start rising up in price point, there’s less room for forgiveness when it comes to things like comfort, sound quality, and the usefulness of included special features. That’s why we were so anxious to get our hands on two top end headsets from SteelSeries and Sennheiser, just to see, how life is at the top end of the price spectrum, and how these “expensive cans” compare to one another.
One side, we have a headset from a company that was born in the trenches of the gaming world, and that company is SteelSeries. We’ve chosen their Siberia Elite headset, which is one of their most daring designs to date. It is touted as a “multi-platform” headset with not only stereo support. In fact, it also features surround sound through Dolby via a bundled USB audio card, and has the ability to display 16.8 million colors in software.
The SteelSeries Siberia Elite retails for $199.99 USD with a 1 year warranty. An all white special edition is $299.99 USD and comes with a case.
On the other end of the spectrum, we have a company that is the standard in the broadcast industry, creating microphone and headphones that define the term “reference”. Launched in November of 2013, the Flagship G4ME series of headsets, represents everything they’ve learned about the gaming culture and the needs of gamers. They came up with two very eye catching headsets, with the G4ME ZERO being the top end set, featuring closed ear cups, excellent portability with a fold flat design and case.
