Jimin-with-the-big-FLAC-collection and I met with one of the SteelSeries guys today. It’s funny: you think you understand where a company’s coming from, but then you sit down and actually talk to them and it’s like, “Wow, OK, you guys are pretty cool.” So to the people who will walk out of Sunday’s Grammy Awards with one of those fancy gift bags you always hear about, I can say this: you’ll probably enjoy the SteelSeries headphones you find in there.
Yup, SteelSeries’ Siberia V2 headphones will be part of the super-fancy gift bag that Grammy Awards presenters receive on their way out the door. (The gift bag for the average tech press party? A t-shirt and USB thumb drive. So there’s a bit of a discrepancy there.) I guess it’s a way to bring attention to the fact that SteelSeries headphones, while designed for crazy professional gamers (and I mean that in a good way, of course), they’re also not too shabby when it comes to listening to your music collection.
In other SteelSeries news, we got a sneak peak at some of their upcoming gear. Hot stuff all around.
