[CES 2012] Look cool with the new SteelSeries Siberia v2 Frost Blue Headset, where wearing this might just psychologically lower the temperature in the room already, thanks to super-bright, blue LED lights that glow through the outer mesh grill on each earcup. Of course, the effect is more of one for viewers rather than the owner of the Siberia v2 Frost Blue itself – unless, of course, he or she loves to camwhore and snap their own photos while these remain plugged in. I would say that wearing this during a gig would be perfect, since the lights and soundscape can be customized via the included SteelSeries Engine software. Being extremely light, the SteelSeries Siberia v2 Frost Blue Headset sports an over-the-head suspension design that is accompanied by an active noise-cancelling microphone and circumaural earcups which deliver 50mm driver units. Grey leather cushions ensure you get a noise-dampening sound at all times.

The headset will illuminate in 6 different modes, where they can be assigned to behavior and game specific profiles. Among them are Active Mode (responsive pulsing to sound effects, music, and/or voice), Slow Pulse, Fast Pulse, High Bright, Low Bright and Off. Other features include active noise cancelling, a “smart” microphone system that will retract itself when not in use so that it does not break off by accident, and a microphones processor that reduces the “noise” while focusing on the sound which is closer to the mic and your voice. Pricing details are still unavailable, so we will have to wait for more information as its Q2 release date draws near.
