SteelSeries Siberia 840 Wireless Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-11-17

After connecting the Siberia 840 to our PC via USB, we started testing it by watching quite a few YouTube videos, some TV Shows, and of course, we did play some games: Carmageddon Max Damage, Devilian, Paladins, Mafia III and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. As the older version, the headset comes with a well-balanced output, which means that the bass is not over-the-top as we may expect from a headset exclusive for gaming; this "feature" does transform the Siberia 840 into an ideal companion for watching movies as well as listening to music.

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:


Breaking The Mold


The Siberia 840 is the perfect gaming headset. Armed with a lag-free wireless connection, transmitter with OLED display, on-ear controls, crystal clear mic and Bluetooth connectivity, the Siberia 840 is everything you need for every gaming platform.


No Lag


The Siberia 840 uses continuous frequency-hopping technology to prevent lag between your game and your headset.


Surround Sound


Immerse yourself in incredible virtual 7.1 surround sound. While most headsets simply feature Dolby Headphone, we feature three different types of Dolby technologies.




The Siberia 840 delivers exceptionally-tuned audio that is perfect for gaming, movies, music and more.


Siberia 840 with Bluetooth


Bluetooth connection lets you chat via VoIP clients through your mobile devices. Gamers can also take calls and stream music, all without ever having to take off their headset.


See Your Settings


No more looking at blinking LEDs to decipher your current settings. The Siberia 840 transmitter box has a vibrant OLED display the shows all of your settings and more.




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.


Wireless Controls


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.


Visual 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.


Hot-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 receiver so it's ready when you need it most.


Memory Foam Earcups


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.


Hinged Earcup Design


The earcups are equipped with a hinge that allows them to swivel. This allows the earcups to lie flat against your neck when not on your head, as well as the ability to lie flat on your desk when not in use.


On Ear 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.


Retractable Mic


The unidirectional retractable microphone of the Siberia 840 picks up the subtle details of your voice with incredible clarity. With the red LED at the tip of the mic, you will always know when you are muted.


Share port


Never leave a friend hanging with the onboard share port. Just plug in a second pair of headphones, and you both can watch that movie in privacy.


Easily Customizable


Right out the box, the Siberia 840 is ready to be used. With the OLED receiver, gain access to basic controls, settings, volume, and ChatMix without ever needing drivers.


Personalize with Engine


With SteelSeries Engine, get the most out of your gear when you tie it with SteelSeries Engine 3. Manage your profiles, equalizer settings, and OLED GameSense features all through the user-friendly software.


Complete control


We’ve designed the Siberia 840 to work with all of your devices. Wherever and whatever you use for entertainment, we have you covered.
