SteelSeries’ Siberia RAW Prism is part of their latest colour range, which advertises to gamers that they have the option of 16 million colours at their disposal. This gives them the ability to tweak and shape, for the exact hue they would like for the rings around the ear cups of the headset.
Like the entire RAW range, the idea is based around a budget. You get a product of similar design, but with downgraded specifications or less additional features. For those looking for a gaming headset without the massive price tag, they can be an enticing model to go in for.
The biggest difference with the RAW Prism from their other Siberia models is the headband design. SteelSeries have gone back to the normal ‘over the head’ design without the suspension type system the other Siberia’s have, which makes it a little heavier. I liked the suspension design but it did struggle to support someone with a smaller head, so the Prism RAW does give some gamers another option. Additional padding to the headband, and the same treatment for the closed ear cups makes for a nice soft fit. For what is a budget headset, comfort does not seem to be one of the features that has been downgraded to shed those pounds. After extensive use, like the previous models, the SteelSeries Siberia RAW Prism still felt great without the need to take it off to let my head breathe. It also did quite well with air flow, unlike other headsets that feel very warm around the ears after longer use, the Prism was cool and breezy.
