Purists might tell you that no matter how good wireless technology might be, it will never be as good as a traditional cabled connection. They hold this to be true for Internet connectivity, just as they hold it to be true for keyboards and mice. They might have a case there, but new products like the Bluetooth-enabled SteelSeries Siberia 840 wireless headphones are certainly narrowing that gap.
SteelSeries has a long and storied history with all kinds of peripherals, so they are certainly no stranger to the world of headphones and headsets. With the Siberia 840, they're promising to deliver not only "superior comfort," but also "lag-free performance" and "exceptional sound." If you've ever thrown a pair of Siberia 800 series gaming headsets on your noggin, you'll know that SteelSeries means business.
The Siberia 840 offers Dolby 7.1 surround sound, Bluetooth connectivity for your mobile devices (including the ability to answer calls) and a unique frequency-hopping technology to avoid interference and delays, offering the best lag-free wireless gaming experience possible. In addition to mobile and PC, the Siberia 840 also works with all major gaming consoles.
Bundled with two swappable lithium-ion batteries, the SteelSeries Siberia 840 retails for $329.99 and is available now. Peep the full press release below for the finer details.
