   We are literally counting the hours before Diablo III the much anticipated (for almost 11 years) RPG game title by Blizzard gets officially released (some may have it already) and so since i am quite certain that most of you are looking forward to it this title should easily break sales records around the world just like StarCraft 2 did just over year ago (perhaps even more). So having already reviewed the very good Diablo III mouse by SteelSeries i thought it would be appropriate to also review their Diablo III headset just hours before the official launch of the game.

 

   From day one, SteelSeries has been focused on making professional gaming gear that provide meaningful benefits to gamers of all skill-level, with the most demanding being those gamers whose lively hood depends on the performance of our products. We believe, as most gamers do, in winning, not trying! What originally began as a small two-person operation in Copenhagen back in 2001 has become a global leader in professional gaming products. SteelSeries recognized the need for superior, high-quality professional gaming gear that would give players a competitive edge. Fast-forward to today, and we've come a long way since our first glass mousepad. We have global offices in North America, Europe, and Asia, providing an integrated portfolio of products designed specifically for gaming. Fueling our growth is you, the gamer!

 

   Although the Diablo III headset is actually based on the Siberia V2 headset (why not use something that already feels and performs great?) SteelSeries has morphed several of its parts to make it more appealing for all the Diablo fans out there and i really have to admit that it worked like a charm since the end result is pretty much unlike any headset I’ve ever seen up until this day. Still that's not all SteelSeries changed and so compared to the Siberia V2 headset the Diablo III headset features higher Ohm impedance (40 compared to 32) headphones and a smart noise-cancelling uni-directional retractable microphone. There's no doubt in my mind that most people will rush to grab the Diablo III headset based on its amazing design and the Diablo III logo but that aside i am also curious to see (or listen) just how good the new features are.
