I've never used the Steelseries headset but I recently bought the HS1A for myself and really have no complaints about it. Compared to my Shure SRH-840's, the HS1A has the edge when it comes to highs but it lacks in bass quantity. But for movies and games, the HS1A is a great choice if you don't want to go the headphone + clip-on mic route (which provides more bang for the buck at the cost of convenience).

Steelseries heasets have decent audio quality but in terms of the quality of the product itself, its horrid. Don't buy "gaming" headsets. they're cheaply put together and often break down within the first few months.

That's another thing I forgot to mention, while I can't comment on the V2's build quality, Corsair definitely put a lot of thought into making a solid feeling headset. It doesn't feel $80 cheap at all.

Ok I know you guys are against gaming headsets but breaking within the first few months? Do you use them as a chew toy for your dog or something?

The Siberia's is a good headset but (as everyone around here would recommend), you should get a good pair of headphones with a seperate mic.
