SteelSeries’ $329 Siberia 840 is the company’s newest wireless headset. It’s part of the Siberia 800 family of gaming headsets.
The Siberia 840 combines the same features of the Siberia 800, including two swappable batteries, cross-platform compatibility for universal use, and Dolby 7.1 surround sound technology for total immersion. However, it takes things to another level with a set of new elements, including Bluetooth connectivity and software customization, according to Brian Fallon, SteelSeries’ category manager, Audio.
The Siberia 840 works with all major gaming consoles and computer operating systems. It comes with an OLED Transmitter to visually monitor all audio, wireless, configuration and system settings, including audio sources, profiles, battery life and more.
The Siberia 840 also boasts memory foam padding on the headband and ear-cups. It features a retractable microphone with an LED on/off indicator, and on-earcup controls for fast volume, navigation and setting adjustments.
