Steelseries Siberia Raw Prism Review – As soon as you take them out of the box you can tell that the Raw Prism is the budget little brother of the rest of the Siberia series. The build quality isn’t near that of its more expensive siblings, but that doesn’t mean it’s shoddily put together, just that it has been designed with the idea of keeping costs down to a minimum. Rather than the usual head band and floating strap design of the rest of the Siberia range, the Raw headset instead uses a single cushioned plastic headband to hold the large, cloth padded ear cups. Rather than a boom mic that snakes from the left ear cup, the Raw instead uses a discrete mic built into the ear cup, making it a little difficult to get the settings right so that your voice is clear. That said, the mics performance isn’t a huge deal worse than the mics on the V3 or V3 Prism. Take from that what you will.
The sound quality of the headset is a little flat overall, but mid and high ranges are well reproduced for the most part. There is a little bit of muddiness and honking at high volume, but for $59 the performance is more than acceptable. As with the other Siberia headsets, the bass response is somewhat lacking, more noticeably so in the Raw than the more expensive offerings. Even so, if you’ve working on a tight budget and want a headset that will satisfy your gaming needs, the Siberia Raw Prism is a winner.
