It wasn’t long after I bought my gaming mouse that I bought a gaming headset. What do you know? I’ve suddenly become a gullible butthole!
As much as I hate to admit it, it was this Justin Bieber parody that put me on to the SteelSeries Siberia headset. In the YouTube comments someone was like “DUDE WHAT HEADPHONES IS HE WEARING” and someone else was like “steelseries siberia bro” and I looked at them and I was like “dang those are pretty baller!” (because, like I said, I’m a butthole now.)
Aesthetics mean a lot to me, because after all the audiophiles everywhere were like “Don’t get a gaming headset, it’s a waste of money, get some good Sennheisers and a clip-on microphone!” I just brushed these people off (the people that own $2000 headphones made of exotic wood to authentically recreate the soundstage of London’s Royal Albert Hall, and $2000 amps, pffft, what the heck do they know) and bought me some freakin’ SteelSeries Siberia v2’s.
Well, believe you me, when you go from a pair of 15 dollar speakers on sticks with foam glued to the edges, the Siberias are heavenly, but there’s always a downside in that apparently my head is ginormous, or my ears are freakishly low on my head, because this headset barely fits. I stretch the thing to its limits.
But now whenever I see someone wearing a pair of SteelSeries Siberias and the headband has a lot of slack, I know “That dude has a tiny head.”
Oh yeah, they sound pretty good too.
