Conclusion: On closer inspection, you'll really notice the quality of the Siberia Neckband. It's solidly made and juts oozes with appeal. The hidden but retractable microphone is discrete and has that very familiar "Steelseries" looks. There is only one comment ... the cable is only 1 meter long, I would have preferred a slightly longer cable.
Summary: The SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset for iPod, iPhone, or iPad that we took a look at today is an updated version of the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband headset and adds built-in controls for you to control your favorite Apple product easily. Technically and design-wise there isn't really any major differences between them other than the inclusion on the "in-line" volume control that is compatible with iPod, iPhone and iPad products.
Pros: Good Sound, Retractable Mic, High Quality Design, iPad/iPhone/iPod Ready
Conclusion: The Siberia Neckband has great sound, but the technique used to keep the headset on your head doesn't work too well in some situations. It does have a nice Apple look to it if you're into matching your peripherals with your devices. Mic picks up some surrounding noise, but I love the design.
SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset for iPod, iPhone and iPad Review
4 February 2011
Excerpt: Recently we have reviewed a couple of headsets from SteelSeries for both the PC ( 7H USB Headset ) and the XBOX 360 ( Spectrum 5XB Headset ). We found them both to be excellent headsets with the 7H USB winning both our Gold and Performance awards due to its great design and overall quality of audio.
Conclusion: After using these headphones for a couple of weeks I really am happy with them. The sound quality of the headphones is really good, especially when you consider their price. You can get a pair of these for around 65 € in Finland at the moment. The looks of the headphones are really nice, clean and simple. These really are one the best looking headphones that I've seen and used. The retractable microphone really adds more to the versatility of the headphones.
Pros: The sound quality, The looks, Retractable microphone
Excerpt: The average gamer is typically the consumer of various portable gadgets. Many people today have at least one MP3 player, video player, or some other form of portable entertainment. Some people may be content with buying a seperate device for a particular application, but headphones are not one of these.
Summary: At first, SteelSeries Siberia Neckband seems a little bit expensive, with an approximate price of 80 euros. But believe me, it's definitely worth it! This headset isn’t made just for gaming, it’s also made for music and it’s compatible with XBOX 360. It has retractable microphone which will help during communication. Also its compact size is perfect for carrying to LAN events. As I said before, this headset totally deserves its price.
Pros: - Developed for gaming and music, - Xbox 360 compatible, - No CD drivers ... Driverless, - Full-size neckband design
Excerpt: With sound quality almost as good as professional studio headsets you really can't go wrong with the Siberia Neckband Headset. If you have a big head like me and comfort is a concern for you however, I would suggest you look for a more conventional headset design.
Summary: The SteelSeries Siberia has a lot of good things going for it. The design is very different and fresh compared to what we are used to seeing and works flawlessly in some applications. Besides being shaped different the design of the cups and microphone helps to conceal that it’s a headset.
Pros: Good looking, Detachable in-line volume adjuster / cable extension, Xbox 360 Supported, Excellent microphone, Bass, Build quality, Durable
