The Acclaimed Siberia Brand Unlocks New Solutions in Audio For All; Each Headset, Unique in Design, Features Best-in-Class Comfort and Sound

COPENHAGEN, Sept. 30, 2014 – Today, SteelSeries, the leading global manufacturer of gaming peripherals, announced the all new Siberia headset family. With the introduction of these six new Siberia headsets, SteelSeries now delivers the most comprehensive suite of gaming audio solutions to fit the needs of any gamer.  Each Siberia headset is built on SteelSeries world-leading standards for amazing comfort, great audio and breakthrough design.  But the breadth of this new range allows each and every gamer to unlock amazing new experiences tailored to exactly what the gamer is looking for in a gaming headset.

“For us, Siberia is the definition of what gaming audio looks, feels and sounds like. When it was first introduced, Siberia delivered a sense of style that was unique to what was typically expected from gaming audio. It produced exactly what was, and is necessary – ‘forget-that-you’re-wearing-it’ comfort and great sound,” said Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO.  “The new Siberia family takes this foundation and extends it into a full product range that delivers an incredibly awesome audio experience for the gamer in everyone”

SteelSeries Siberia v3 - $99.99 / €99,99
At the heart of the family, the Siberia v3 Gaming Headset leads the line-up with its iconic and insanely comfortable Siberia suspension design.  The audioscape has been competely redesigned with next generation SteelSeries audio drivers. These drivers deliver rich, detailed sound with powerful bass, and a wholly unique headset construction, including noise-reducing memory foam ear cushions that provide more sound isolation than ever before.  The headset has a single-plug cable along with a dual-jack extension for use on all types of gaming devices from PCs to laptops, mobile devices and consoles. Available in black or white, the new Siberia v3 truly advances the features that have set this brand apart.

SteelSeries Siberia v3 Prism - $139.99 / €139,99
Radiating any of the 16.8 million color choices from its outer mesh-pattern earcups, the Siberia v3 Prism joins the family and presents gamers with all of the comfort, features and style found in the Siberia v3, but adds the personalized performance and style features that SteelSeries Engine offers, including:
•   Unlimited profile settings that can be saved and accessed from anywhere via SteelSeries CloudSync
•   Microphone Noise Suppression and Microphone Auto Compression technologies optimize voice communication automatically
•   Digital audio quality with custom EQ
•   ColorShift illumination effects and modes that can be set by the user, or triggered by game sounds and events

Siberia Elite Prism - $199.99 / €199,99
We have upgraded our Siberia Elite to make the Siberia brand an even more compelling choice for the most selective gamer.  An entirely new, slimmer microphone and an upgraded sound card improve the clarity of what you hear – and how you are heard.  Ear cushion fine-tuning makes the headset even more comfortable, for longer gaming sessions than the original.  The Siberia Elite Prism still delivers Dolby Headphone® and Dolby Pro Logic IIx® technologies for up to a virtual 7.1-channel surround soundscape, customizable illumination and audio settings, a swappable cable system for use across PC, Mac®, PS4™ and mobile devices, all of which were a part of the Siberia Elite platform launched last year.  This upgrade represents our commitment to never stop innovating, on even our top-of-the-line, fully loaded products.

Siberia RAW Prism - $59.99 / €59,99
Lastly, we are proud to introduce an entirely new product designed to make the Siberia brand even more accessible – to unlock great gaming audio for a wider set of gamers than ever before.  The new Siberia RAW Prism is an economical gaming headset with a lightweight design and comfort level worthy of the Siberia brand. Its SteelSeries speaker drivers push out a full range of sound with crisp detail. Powered by SteelSeries Engine software, gamers can customize and back up audio profiles, while the illuminated ring on each earcup can be customized with 16.8 million color options. A built-in microphone with Mic Auto Optimization technology for clear voice communication resides on the left earcup, along with an easily accessible microphone mute button. A USB connection powers the Siberia RAW Prism, making it compatible with PC, Mac, PS4 and more.  

In this full lineup, there truly is a Siberia for the gamer in everyone.  For even more detailed information about each headset in the Siberia family and the availability of each, please visit To join the conversation and stay up to date about new products, contests and giveaways, find us on our social media channels at and

xx Official NexusLAN IRC Channel (Real-Time Chat) #NexusLAN
October 11, 2013, 04:37:28 PM by evildoer
We've set up a channel on  Simply connect your client and join #NexusLAN.

What is IRC?
IRC is a client-server based real time chat application.  Think of like an in game chat - with moderators - that you can be connected to 24/7.

IRC Clients
MIRC: (Locks after 90 days and no registration)
Or the thousands of others..

Two commands you need to know.
/join #nexuslan


Why not Gamesurge?
QuakeNet is a larger network and supports their network better than gamesurge.  Frankly, gamesurge was the first choice but the inability to register a channel and one word answers from their support staff forced me to look else-where.  Frankly, QuakeNet appears to be a more professionally ran IRC server.

We have forums/teamspeak/ventrillo/gtalk for communications
IRC is different.  One person can effectively address many people at one time and it can be both real-time, and delayed in that you can always scroll up or respond to a question later. 

Worth mentioning: They have some great community channels.  Their #LeagueOfLegends channel had 500 people in it when I checked!  Their #WoW channel had 40 people, #DayZ had 90, etc.  There's already a massive world-wide community that dwarfs Gamesurge.  So make sure you check out the other channels too.

Can I have ops/voice/whatever
Please don't ask. 

Can I idle?
Please do.

Can I run a fileserver?
Do not use #NexusLAN to advertise or facilitate any type of illicit activities.

Can I run a bot?
As long as it's not annoying and any associated commands do not start with '.' or otherwise interfere with "Q" or "PipBoy2000", the channels bots.

Do I need to attend a NexusLAN event to join the channel?
Feel free to join or invite anyone you think might fit the channel.  We're not limited to attendees only.

General rules:
Feel free to chat about LANs, gaming, hardware, or general life.
Use common sense.
If you use any kind of IRC scripts, please keep them reasonable.  IE: Spamming a channel with an MP3 script can get annoying pretty quickly.
Use common sense.
Don't take things personally.  It's easy to take things out of context. 
And use common sense.
