SteelSeries, in partnership with Blizzard Entertainment has announced the release of the Siberia Elite World of Warcraft Edition headset.
Since Warlords of Draenor is around the corner, SteelSeries and Blizzard Entertainment have been working on a WoW variation of the Siberia Elite headset. The results is a headset with jet-black cushions, illuminated runes, and a suspension-based headband, featuring a steel frame, and padded PU leather wrapping for added comfort.
"Our partnership with Blizzard Entertainment to create unique gear for the World of Warcraft community has culminated in this bold new version of our premium and award-winning headset—a perfect complement to Blizzard's upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion," said Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO. "Players deserve the best quality audio to experience the music and sounds of Draenor; this exclusive edition of the Siberia Elite headset delivers epic audio quality in a beautiful World of Warcraft-themed design.
Players can choose the headset's lighting, whether that means millions of color options saved in a number of audio profiles, or various lighting options, including pulsating glow, dynamic lighting based on your in-game actions, or no illumination at all.
The headset is equipped with multiple Dolby technologies and a closed-type earcup design that provides listeners with virtual 7.1-channel surround sound. Players are able to create and save their own unique audio profiles through the SteelSeries Engine 3 software by tuning their own equalizer settings, microphone functionality and much more. Gamers can control their microphone mute as well as speaker volume from directly on the headset by turning the easy-to-find dials on each earcup, making quick adjustments simple and convenient.
The USB sound-card has also been redesigned from the ground-up, to provide better multi-channel audio. It also delivers multiple Dolby technologies, DSP driven active-noise cancellation microphone, 16.8 million color illumination with ColorShift, and more.
The SteelSeries Siberia Elite World of Warcraft Edition headset is available for pre-order now on the SteelSeries Web Shop for $209.99.
