Last week we received the Siberia Raw Prism gaming headphones to try out and they impressed me considered the price which can range from €49.99 upward..
I am a huge headphone fan and like to try out as much as possible,in my personal collection I have about 15 pairs of various headphones from all brands,The SIBERIA RAW PRISM have been mostly comfortable to use,light and gave no problems during the week,gaming is not really a huge thing I do these days but when I do I use headphones to have not only peace and quite but quality sound to immerse myself into the actual game itself or the music I might be listening to.
Presentation of the package..
Presentation was just as you would find most headphones with very descriptive information on the exterior of the box,on the inside though its just moulded plastic to house the contents which is the headphones and an information leaflet,pretty solid enough though and the package arrived fine..
Connecting to PS4/PC and you can also use on mobiles with USB OTG Support..
Connecting to your PS4/PC is simple and takes seconds and away you go,sound from these when playing games is quite good and makes the game more enjoying to use no matter what,sound was crisp and clear not too loud with control options using your controller,the same can be said for mobiles with USB on the go support,if you have the USB OTG cable its plug in and listen as you would your typical 3.5mm and no loss of sound quality was noticed here either and listening to music on your device was a pleasure and comfortable..Sound and illumination colours can be customised from your PC after downloading some software.
Design and quality.
You have your typical design here and there is plenty of comfort with a non sweat experience around the ears,they have a mesh like material on the cups rather than leather,they keep in the noise and you can wear for hours,on the headband also a mesh like material was present again making them comfortable to wear for long periods of time without getting that sweaty feel.The cups have a small amount of play in them which is fine although some like that bit more but there is enough wiggle room to keep you happy,both sides had extending slots which to me might seem a little on the weak side and longevity would be something I would be concerned about but this again is down to the user and how rough they are and how you look after your product,for me its not a problem as I have several pairs of headphones up to 6 years old and they are still like new…
The left cup is where you can control the mute button which is done by just tapping the outside of the cup,its a simple process and works without fail every time,also present on the left is the mic that is not so obvious its a mic,which works fine too and perfect for gaming with others and again sound is crisp and clear,the both cups illuminate via LEDs with millions of colours (you need to add some software to get them,steelseries engine) and this shows others that they are in use,take it as a warning sign that you are busy when you see them lit up if you will and for the gamer all they do is tap the cup and this will disengage the sound,Sound overall is pretty good with two channel stereo it will not suit all but overall the sound quality is more than acceptable at its price-point..
The Pros – Affordable,Good sound,Comfortable,Light.USB OTG devices support them.
The Cons – All plastic,wear and tear a factor for mesh and extension arms,USB connection only but they work on USB OTG supported devices.Customize sound and illumination preferences.
