Conclusion: I have nothing major negative to say about the Icemat Siberia Headset. These things sound awesome, vibrant, rich, and have excellent bass. Anything I have thrown at them has sounded ‘high quality’. The Siberia has a unique look to them as well. The frame loops well above the pad that sits on the top of your head and provides a bit of a ‘retro,’ 1930’s-style look. You look a little funny wearing these Siberia’s but I think that’s a very small price to pay for great sound.
Pros: Excellent sound quality; vibrant and rich, Great clip-on microphone, Comfortable, Excellent paint, Vented
Cons: Cord for headphone only is short (personal preference), Cord is too long when volume regulator and microphone is attached (spaghetti wiring), Open type headphones pose possible problems. Can easily get annoying for others., Could still be too pricy for some folks; but I think it’s worth it., --------------------------------------
Conclusion: The Icemat Siberia Headset represents a versatile product paired with great aesthetics. The overall build quality of the unit is satisfactory and consumers will appreciate the attention to detail in order to provide a very comfortably fitting headset. Overall sound quality is comparable to similar budget headphones and will leave audiophiles unsatisfied.
Pros: Aesthetically pleasing design, Great for gaming applications, Very comfortable, Good sound, Detachable microphone
Cons: Closed ear concept would achive better isolation, No removable wire strips, Price
Excerpt: Mike reviewed Icemat Siberia In:Ear a few weeks ago and he thought they were a pretty good set of earphones. I got the chance to try out their headphones this time. The gaming market is growing so fast these days and you need a good set of headphones/earphones to be able to keep up with the advanced sounds that the new soundcards are able to push out. A microphone is essential for todays gamer also as you always talk though Ventrilo or other voice communication software.
Conclusion: This headset retails for £40 which is a good deal considering its sound reproduction and the ability to use it on your PC, or with a stand-alone media player. It looks ‘cool’ rather than functional, which is always a bonus. Whilst I would far from walk down the street with this on, it’ll look a lot better than other headsets at, say, a LAN party.
Excerpt: Efter Dreamhacks senaste världsrekord är det ingen som tvivlar på att gamingscenen växer så det knakar. Men för att bli en vinnare i konkurrensen krävs det träning, tålamod och ... seriös hårdvara. Icemat går från att endast ha tillverkat musmattor, till headset.
