SteelSeries Siberia V3 review - Follow-up to V2?

Comfort

Depending on your head, V3 is either very comfortable, or frustratingly loose fitting. When I put it on, it felt like it wasn't there. The headband, the bit that comes in contact with my head causes no strain or fatigue, and the cushions are really soft. At first glance, it's nothing short of fantastic.

The comfort issues become apparent when you move, because this is by far the loosest headset I tried in recent memory. If I move my head a bit, there's a chance it might slide of. In fact, I tried and found I could stretch it with ease and place it atop its box (see image below). Overall I feel SteelSeries took the comments that V2 was too tight to heart and went an extra mile the other way.

SteelSeries Siberia V3 - Stretch

If you have a small head, I cannot even begin to imagine how the Siberia V3 would stay on your head.

SteelSeries was kind enough to provide most specs on its official website as well as on the underside of the box.
