Sadly, my transmitter stopped working after 2 months (purchased in June drop). Steelseries support directed me to initiate RMA, we shall see. Nice headset, bummer to have something [quite costly] fail so quickly.
I'm likely the only fool using these with a PS4, but a head's up that new PS4 units do not have an optical, which means these wouldn't be supported should you choose to 'upgrade.'

I'm a fan of these guys if somebody is looking for a much cheaper wireless headset: https://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Beach-Wireless-Headphone-Surround/dp/B00ZC3S72I

hmm, I have a pair of the SteelSeries H Wireless (what these were originally before they rebranded their entire headphone lineup to the Siberia series) and they still work just great. I don't treat them like crap though, I tend to be very delicate with any of my expensive gear. I did stretch the headband also as the clamp was initially too tight and the headband stretched with no issues (gotta stretch it by the middle metal part, not the extension part). I did also replace the pads with the brainwavz HM5 velour pads because I didn't find the stock pads to be comfortable/thick enough.
Sound quality wise, don't expect it to match $300 headphones like an HD 600 or even the K7XX because you definitely do pay for the wireless and other features it comes with along with the DAC/AMP box. It's not bad however (I'd put it on par with M50X). All being said, I don't think there's another truly 100% wireless headset on the market. Most of the others will die in long gaming sessions and then you're plugged in (which would be a no no for those really needing a wireless headset. For those who don't mind, you're better off with a wired headset in the first place). With this, each battery lasts a long time (10-20 hrs) and if it runs out, you just swap the battery and you're good to go. You're virtually wireless all the time.
I've had mine for a couple of years now and although I don't use it as much as I used to, when I first got it, I've used it on a daily basis for long periods of time (6+ hrs/day) and there's no sign of anything cracking (I've even dropped it accidentally on my porcelain tile floor once). It's possible that quality has dropped since they rebranded the line, but it honestly looks identical and I can't see anyone snapping the fairly thick headband without some sort of accident or abuse.

I had a pair of these. They were legit, but the sound stopped working after about 5 weeks. They sound good, but they don't have the best reliability or build quality. I recommend investigating the Plantronics RIG 800HS/HX series when they drop for $149 in September: http://www.plantronics.com/us/product/rig-800hs?skuId=sku29340015

I purchased these on Amazon and ended up returning them.
Pros: The comfort, audio, battery life, and range are good.
Cons: Headband snapped, cheap plastic. Mic feels flimsy and I was hesitant to retract it often.
The most important con: Steelseries support sucks.
I am 99% sure Russ is the only support agent they have and he took almost two weeks at one message per day or less to approve an RMA. To get it approved, I had to print a QR code (no printer of course), write my name and ticket number, and photograph it next to the headset. They do not cross ship. They have to receive the headset to even process the RMA.
Then, they make you agree to horrible return conditions.
WARNING: IF YOU RMA THIS HEADSET, STEELSERIES CAN DECIDE IT WAS NOT DEFECTIVE AND "If it is found to not be defective, it will be discarded"!
If you RMA for something that is maybe a computer issue or not covered under warranty, they will throw your headset away.
Decent product, cheap plastic, poor support. This is not what I expect from a $300 headset.

Edit: My question as been answered, but I have an another one, how this compare to an Astro A50? Also, how long can I expect between shipping to Canada and payment?
Thanks!

The Astro A50's are a little more comfortable. The base on the Steel Series is lightyears ahead of the competition with its intuitive OLED display. They also have GREAT OS X and Windows software. I can't say the same for Logitech, Astro, Corsair or even Razer. With that being said, these still have build quality issues with the headsets and the RMA process is horrible. I'm steering my friends and peers to the Plantronics RIG 800HS/HX series when they drop for $149 in September.
