The bundled sound card can be used with PCs and laptops via USB, but the Elite Prism also comes with the necessary cables in order to connect the headset on analog to sound cards and mobile gadgets.

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:

 

Superior Sound

 

The Siberia Elite Prism features superior sound, incredible comfort and high-end features that make it the ultimate choice in gaming headsets.

 

We took everything that was loved about the original, award-winning Siberia Elite and made it even better. Significant upgrades, both inside and out, make the Elite Prism everything you could ask for in a deluxe, competition-grade headset.

 

The rich in-game sound comes from years of research and a passion for gaming. We are committed to using only the best components, materials, and features for an elite gaming experience.

 

Dolby Technology

 

Siberia Elite Prism harnesses the power of two different Dolby technologies, Dolby ProLogic IIx® and Dolby Headphone®, for deep immersion and an amazingly rich soundscape.

 

Dolby ProLogic IIx transforms 5.1-channel content to full-range 7.1 channel audio. It also enriches your experience by adding even more depth. This makes for a more engaging and realistic audio environment while gaming or listening to media.

 

Dolby Headphone simulates the powerful feel of listening to multiple speakers in a room right within your headset. It’s like a multi-speaker theater experience that engulfs your ears in a rich and spacious soundscape.

 

Customized Audio

 

Further enhance Siberia Elite Prism’s sound using our powerful SteelSeries Engine 3 configuration software on PC and Mac®. Use it to adjust the 10-band equalizer, switch between presets, and manage the microphone and Dolby options.

 

All of these tweaks can be saved to an unlimited amount of profiles that will auto-load depending on which application or game you launch. This makes switching between profiles hassle-free, giving you complete control over your sound.

 

Noise Isolation

 

The noise-isolating earcups on the Siberia Elite Prism have a dual role when it comes to creating the competition-grade soundscape of the headset.

 

Their first role is to help keep outside noise out. Carefully-engineered memory foam seals the earcups around your ears to help you focus on in-game audio and keep out background noise.

 

Additionally the closed-back design and padded earcups keep your game audio in. The earcup fully engulfs and isolates your ear, driving deep and resounding bass. This also increases clarity and detail for a stunning acoustic experience.

 

Upgraded Microphone

 

The left earcup of the Siberia Elite Prism houses a completely new and improved microphone. This directional microphone is retractable and picks up your voice with incredible clarity.

 

It only gets better when using the included SteelSeries Sound Card – turn on active noise cancellation to help defeat background noise for crystal-clear voice.

Customization

 

SteelSeries Engine 3, illumination, and USB sound make the Siberia Elite Prism incredibly customizable and powerful. You can easily tweak your audio with the included rotating dials on each earcup, one to mute the mic and one to adjust the volume.

 

Cable adapters for PC, Mac, PS4 and mobile devices offer a multiplatform, high-end sound experience.

 

16.8 Million Colors

 

You can put your own unique spin on the Siberia Elite Prism by modifying the illumination settings. Choose from 16.8 million colors, displayed on the vivid LEDs that encircle the earcups.

 

Our AudioTrigger illumination effect is new to the Elite series – pick an RGB color and watch as it pulses in and out based on music volume coming into the headset. Additional effects include ColorShift and Breathing.

 

SteelSeries Engine 3

 

Our advanced SteelSeries Engine 3 configuration software suite is where all the customization happens. It’s easy to use and packed with options like the 10-band equalizer, noise cancellation, mic feedback, and more.

 

All of your settings can be stored individually for each custom profile you create. Profiles can be triggered by any application you run on your computer. Once your customizations are set, take advantage of our CloudSync™ feature to save and retrieve all your settings on the cloud.

 

Sound Card

 

The included USB SteelSeries Sound Card unlocks the powerful Dolby technologies, microphone noise cancellation, illumination settings and more. Our engineers designed it as the perfect complement to the Siberia Elite Prism, boosting its sound and customization options.

 

Improved Comfort

 

The Siberia Elite Prism was built to deliver luxurious comfort over hours and hours of gaming. The design was inspired by our original Siberia headsets which are known throughout the pro-gaming scene as the most comfortable headsets in the world.

 

For the Siberia Elite Prism we cranked the comfort up to 11. The suspension headband and memory foam earcups from the original Siberia Elite have both been improved making the Elite Prism one of our most comfortable headsets ever.

 

Upgraded Earcups

 

Each ear cushion is made with a soft, breathable surface and filled with dense memory-foam cushioning. For the Elite Prism we made the inner openings larger for a more universal fit. The super-thick cushions provide a comfortable, effective seal as they form around your head.

 

Refined Suspension System

 

Our iconic Siberia suspension headband returns, giving the Siberia Elite Prism an easy, relaxed fit. It’s lightweight, durable, and features generous padded cushions for exceptional comfort.

 

We refined the curve of the finished steel arc from the original Siberia Elite. This reduces tension, loosens the headset up, and improves the overall fit of the Siberia Elite Prism.
