Summary: First, I'd like to note that I did not experience any of the pain or fatigue in my ears from wearing these phones for an extended period of time like others have. Maybe they have a bigger head than I do, I dunno. The sound quality on these is excellent.
Summary: I'll preface the review by stating that my Siberia Neckband was purchased at GameStop in April 2009, and may be of different build quality than the newer versions. That's right, I (or sometimes my sister, who frequently breaks headsets and needs to borrow one) have been using this headset for FOUR...
Fit is iffy if you have long hair; just work around it.

Summary: First off, let me just say that these headphones have great sound. Bass leaves very little to be desired, and fine details come through well. I love the design; they definitely look like something an alien race would design (maybe the protoss?).
Summary: This headset looks awesome, and has great sound for the price. Also the retractable mic is amazing, no pickup issues or feedback of any kind. The problem comes from me having a big head I think. I put this headset on and after about ten minutes my ears are killing me.
Summary: It is the best sounding headset I have ever owned before. But as a person who has used many behind the head/neck headsets, this one is by far the worse. PROS: Sounds are crisp and clear The microphone is fantastic The cords are nice and long In-line volume control Another cable that you can use this...
Summary: Build quality is good, sound quality is good ... but---- I am a normal sized adult and after a few hours of wear the front of my ears hurt. This is due to the behind-the-neck design and the band being spring-loaded.
Summary: Because of the design, the headset shift around. It rests on the back of your neck, which moves around a bit, causing the shift. The earcups are smaller than many other headsets, which also adds to it being unconforable. It takes awhile to "break in" this headset.
Pros: Very small Decent sound quality Decent mic quality Includes an extension cable with volume control Includes cables for xbox (if you care about it) Mic can be retracted Solid build
Cons: VERY uncomfortable for the first couple weeks of use No mic control Headset constantly shifts, which is a bit annoying No sound isolation (people can hear my music when I use them on the bus)
Pros: Right when the headset arrived I plugged it in and started listening to all types of music, except country... that goes without saying right? All types of music would be Megadeth, Lil Wayne, At The Gates, Bob Marley, Bad Brains, Nirvana, and Christina Aguilera. I didn't buy the headset for music ...
