Conclusion: So, on to the daily use of the Siberia Neckband. The first thing which struck us is that it has a clever design that ensures a firm but comfortable fit. The headphones are connected by a flexible suspension which can be extended to place the earpieces in position then retracted to ensure the headset fits firmly behind the head, allowing us to use various types of headwear at the same time as the headset.
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. Why have a seperate pair [...
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
Conclusion: If the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband fit more comfortably on my head and if it’s noise cancellation was a little better, I’d have no problem giving this a very high score. In every other area (but price), it performs as good or better than most other headsets in its price range that I’ve reviewed. It also looks quite cool, something that few gaming headsets pull off.
Pros: Good sound quality, Beautiful, sleek design, Useful iOS features, Compatible with iOS, 360, PC
Cons: Doesn’t grip as tightly as it should, Priced a little high, Poor noise isolation
Excerpt: I’ve never quite understood neckband headsets, and they do take some getting used to. The laws of gravity seem to dictate that having the band on top of your head is the most sensible location, but fashion will always try to run against the grain and thus, and for seemingly no other reason I can identify, neckband headphones were born. The SteelSeries Siberia are actually a pretty good example of such ‘phones.
