Accessories and Uses
The SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism shares the same handy on-board controls as its predecessor as well. The dial on the right ear cup smoothly controls the in-bound audio to the headset. The dial on the left clicks as it toggles the mic-mute on and off. Should you have the headset connected through the USB soundcard, the head of the boom mic illuminates brightly as an indicator when the mic is muted. You can still mute your mic in any configuration (pc, ps4, mobile, etc.), it’s just that the headset only lights up when it receives power from the USB.
The Siberia Elite Prism comes with an extension cord to help facilitate your more unique desktop cable management scenarios, an adapter to a mic-in and stereo-out splitter for users who want to stick with their own sound card experience, a 3.5 mm 4-pole connector for use on mobile devices and the Mac OS, and the aforementioned SteelSeries USB sound card that opens up even more functionality. You can also use the 3.5mm connector with an Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter if you want to use the SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism with your Xbox One.
The SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism is great as a stand-alone unit thanks to its intuitive on-board volume and mic-muting controls. The retractable boom mic nestles efficiently into the left ear cup keeping it out of the way when you don’t need it, whether it be in gaming or mobile use. Also, the collection of accessories pretty much allow you to tackle any listening needs or set-ups you may have. This a nicely arranged product package right out of the box.
