Steelseries Siberia 840 Wireless Headset Review

As befits a headset which is capable of supporting every audio input you can imagine, the Siberia 840 comes equipped with a multitude of cables to make sure you get the best possible experience. We have Analog, Mobile, XBOX, PS4 and Optical cables alongside a charging cable - with a plug that supports all types of wall socket, and two batteries.

The 840 itself is surprisingly light given its wireless nature, with large memory foam earcups and well padded headband. It should prove itself suited to lengthy gaming sessions, particularly if the claimed 20 hour runtime from a single battery proves to be true. Like most Steelseries headsets it comes with a retractable microphone, and the right earpiece contains the bluetooth connection, power button as well as covered input ports for the console audio jacks. Unlike many wireless headsets the Siberia 840 supports swappable batteries, so rather than be forced to connect yourself when the battery gets low you can quickly swap the flat one for a fresh one.

The break-out box contains the majority of inputs including a power input to charge the battery. Helpfully there is a battery slot built in to the side of the box so it's always within easy reach. You can control the 840 with the Steelseries Engine software, or just use the box itself as it contains all the relevant settings and adjustments. Let's look at those.
