Introduction (Cont’d)

A three-foot cord comes out of the left earcup with two 3,5 mm jacks. The cable itself is not long, but it is made to be connected to the Audiomixer unit, that in turn connects the Siberia V2 to multiple gaming platforms.

The longest cord in the whole package comes out of the Audiomixer. It is a nine-foot cable that hooks the Siberia V2 to a PC, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 by means of a USB connector (for voice) and a single 3.5 mm (for game audio). The Audiomixer features two 3.5 mm ports, independent volume controls for voice and game audio, mute button, and a selector for the LiveMix function (we will talk about it later on).

The accessories also include a little cord to connect to the Xbox 360 control and another with converters to RCA plugs (to hook the headset to a TV). There is a manual in several languages with diagrams for different setups to help the user make the right connections with ease.
