The Siberia V2 Full-Size Headset (US$89.99) made by SteelSeries (http://www.steelseries.com) jumps out at you from the box with a great design. You can get them in three vibrant colors: black, white, and red.
This headset is loaded with many improvements over the old version. The most notable one is the microphone. SteelSeries has added a pull-out design so you can pull the microphone out when you need it and you can push it back in when you only want to use the headphones. I love that feature!
The microphone audio is very crisp with no static. This is a closed-type headset, and they do a great job of blocking out surrounding noise and also keeping others from hearing what you are listening to. I love the design, and they are exceptionally comfortable.
I played some World of Warcraft the other day with these on for four hours in a row and had no irritation. I was also able to buy an attachment to use these with Call of Duty: Black Ops. They work great.
This headset is great for games and the sound quality is good enough for audiophiles. If you are looking for a gaming headset that is comfortable and looks cool then this is the one for you.
