SteelSeries, best known for their variety of gaming peripherals, have officially announced the release of the Siberia 840, their newest wireless gaming headset that comes with Bluetooth. The Siberia 840, part of the Siberia 800 family of gaming headsets, is well-known among gamers as one of the best wireless gaming headsets thanks to its comfort and sound quality.
The Siberia 840 sports the same features of the Siberia 800 like two swappable batteries, cross-platform compatibility, and Dolby 7.1 surround sound technology, however, it brings a couple new things into play. These new features, only available on the Siberia 840, includes Bluetooth connectivity and software customization.
“The Siberia 840 not only delivers the same detailed sound quality as its predecessor, but also incorporates Bluetooth connectivity for true universal mobile compatibility,” said Brian Fallon, SteelSeries Category Manager, Audio. “It is no longer just a gaming headset, but a flawless audio system that gamers can use to listen to music and even answer calls.”
Universal Platform Support
As mentioned earlier, the Siberia 840 works with all major gaming consoles and computer operating systems and integrates Bluetooth technology. Designed to give users control, accessibility and visibility from anywhere in the room, Siberia 840 comes with an OLED Transmitter to visually monitor all audio, wireless, configuration and system settings, including audio sources, profiles, battery life and more.
Aesthetics and Comfort
Highlighted by memory foam padding on the headband and ear-cups to deliver enduring comfort, the Siberia 840 also features a retractable microphone with an LED on/off indicator, and on-earcup controls to make sudden volume, navigation and setting adjustments quick and intuitive.
The headset can be customized through the OLED receiver without the need of installing drivers, including changing settings, volume and more. Gamers wishing to unlock the headset’s full power can utilize SteelSeries Engine 3 to manage profiles, modify equalizer settings and more.
The SteelSeries Siberia 840 also comes with two swappable lithium-ion batteries with an estimated 20 hours of charge time each, which is pretty nice. After everything is said and done, the Siberia 840 clocks in at $329.99, definitely placing it at the top end of gaming headsets out there.
