Available in a myriad of colors, the new Siberia 200 headset from SteelSeries brings the series back to the gaming world.
Okay so that was inspiring, but you might be wondering what it has to do with headsets. Well, incase you haven’t put it together yet, the new Siberia 200 from SteelSeries is one ‘set that’s available in a 7 different colors- all inspired by the pro-gamers that you see in the video above.
While the decision to bring back the Siberia v2, now named the Siberia 200, was based on the feedback of eSports players, streamers and gamers from around the globe, SteelSeries wanted to deliver improvements and new choices as well. The 7 unique colors options were inspired by the personalities and styles of the new SteelSeries Ambassadors: Sumail “Suma1L” Hassan Syed, Eric “Snip3down” Wrona, Kevin “Broken” Georges, Kellsie “KayPea” Pelling, and Edwin “Castro” Castro. In the coming weeks, SteelSeries will release their stories, provide a glimpse into their worlds, and share what inspires the “true colors” behind this roster of talented and dedicated gamers.
More than just flash though, the headset comes back to market with new features as well, like 50mm drivers, volume and mic controls on the in-line remote, a retractible mic, and compatibility for PC, Mac, and mobile devices. Yep, it’s been gone for a little while, but the Siberia is returning to gamers with plenty under the hood, and that aforementioned personality as well.

Refreshing and bringing this headset back to market celebrates a headset with a proven track record of success and delivers exactly what gamers really want,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “The community played such an integral roll in this headset refresh, which meant the color choices we were going to offer needed to be deeply connected to influential gaming personalities – that’s where our Ambassadors came in. We’re thrilled to be able to bring meaningful color combinations and their stories to gamers.”
