SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-04-06

The Siberia 800 wireless gaming headset flagship from SteelSeries does come with a Dolby-certified console and can be connected to a wide variety of devices thanks to the inputs/outputs on both breakout box and headset but also thanks to the supplied cables. The dual-battery setup is quite unique and permits us to swap between these in just under ten seconds. The display of the console is always on thanks to the OLED technology, shows a lot of settings which we can perform depending on the chosen interfaces and on the main screen we do have the battery levels listed, current volume levels, Dolby feature when enabled but also more.

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:


Game Breaking Audio


The Siberia 800 cuts the cord to deliver exceptional audio in a brilliantly designed wireless headset. Hear your enemies so clearly, they'll think you're hacking.


Cutting-Edge Compatibility


We've designed this headset to work with all of your devices. Wherever and whatever your entertainment is, Siberia 800 has you covered, just like a trained marksman.


Living Room Elegance


Looks aren’t everything? Tell that to the ugly headsets. The Siberia 800 was designed to resemble a stealth bomber, sleek and deadly. The modern allure of the headset and transmitter are guaranteed to raise eyebrows.




The powerful OLED transmitter gives you full control of the features that matter. Customize the balance of voice chat and modify your EQ settings, all on the fly.


Lag Free


Siberia 800 uses continuous frequency hopping technologies to prevent any lag between your game and your headset. The competition waits for interference to be detected before changing channels. We just avoid it completely.


Dolby® Audio


Immerse yourself in incredible virtual 7.1 surround sound. While most headsets simply feature Dolby Headphone, we feature three different Dolby technologies: Dolby Headphone, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pro Logic IIx.


Low Latency


Siberia 800 delivers the lowest latency in the industry. Period.




Siberia 800 works on PC, Mac, Xbox One (with adapter), PlayStation 4, home entertainment systems, phones, and tablets. We even threw in a Sound Share port for when a friend wants to join in on the action.


Couch Control


The on-earcup controls make adjustments quick and intuitive. With the control wheel, you can adjust volume and navigate the most commonly used settings right from your seat.


Swappable Batteries


Never lose power, never go wired. We included two 20-hour lithium-ion batteries, which can be changed mid-action without the hassle of any cables or wires. The spare battery charges inside the transmitter so it's ready when you need it.


Stunning Design


A sleek and stylish mix of matte black and glossy finish are highlighted by SteelSeries Orange stitching for a polished look. Add in comfort to style, memory foam padding on the headband and ear-cups delivers enduring wearability.


Beautiful Display


Profiles, audio sources, battery life, and volume are shown with crystal clear visuals. The large display makes it easy to see and operate from the comfort of your couch.


Chat Mix


You control the audio level balance between the action in your game and the communication from your team. Simply turn up the chat audio to ensure hearing your friends over the explosions. Or turn down your friends if you want to focus on the action.




Hear what you were meant to with the pre-programmed equalizer. Easily change it with the push of a button for those intense, action-packed movies, or switch to Music when feeling those slow jams.
