Siberia

SteelSeries Siberia V2

16

A couple of months ago, my old Logitech Premium Notebook Headset (which I’ve bought a couple of times over the years) had broken down the middle. logitech headsetThis was particularly annoying when either earpiece would periodically fall off my ear – even after I taped it back together but I was particularly fond of the style which sits comfortably behind my head, allowing me to wear them for hours without any issue. The fact that it also came with a USB adapter was another plus since that’s my preference when it comes to headsets.

So after hearing about my dilemma and having to listen to my headset fall off my ears every few minutes, Coolidge wanted to send me the SteelSeries Siberia V2 Full-Size Headset for Christmas (after being sold on the product himself).

I must say I was curious about the brand, particularly after the last few months but it’s been years since I’ve used an earmuff design. As soon as I put them on I felt like an astronaut. It really muffled out any external sound including my own voice which can be good or bad but there were a few features I was fond of, even before trying them on.

The mic is retractable so you can adjust it when you need it and retract it when you don’t.

The adjustable headband helps keep the headset (and hair) in place.

After reading several reviews, this did come up quite a lot but I’ve also noticed that if I place the headset (or rather the headband) just behind my hairline (like you would with a normal headband accessory) the pressure is lessened. One user did note that the headset does feel looser over time so that’s something to look forward to.

Apart from that it does seem like a great headset although Coolidge did mention he could hear other background sounds (from my end) so perhaps not the best for open-ended conversations when you have a noisy household.

Has anyone else found any issues with their SteelSeries Siberia headsets?

The Price of a Sigil (or Three)

I had no intention of making another legendary cloak but I thought I may as well finish The Strength of One’s Foes while the sigils still had a chance to drop. Doing this more than once is not fun but when I noticed I was three away from completing the quest, I tried queuing for the first two sections of SoO. It was hard enough getting a fresh run at times but I persevered leaving me one short so tried my luck in an older raid. I queued for all four sections in the Throne of Thunder zoning into the Pinnacle of Storms and then Forgotten Depths.

As I jumped onto Ji-Kun’s platform, something unexpected happened.

That’s right, my pet landed right on my head! This may be old news for some but it’s only the second time I’ve taken my hunter in there so I wasn’t sure if this was a common thing or not. So after someone pulled the boss prematurely I was curious to see if I could recreate the effect.

Cat bearding warcraft style? …or what about this as a cat beard? LMAO!

Then again, I think I like my SpiritHood better.

After staring at Ji-Kun for an hour or so, I ended up being the last tauren AFKing. Looks like that last sigil will have to wait.

Just a quick note to thank everyone for their congratulations over the last day. At this stage, there is no set date for completing my legendary but Cool and I are looking at next weekend due to some commitments we have over the next few days. Stay tuned…
