"With sound quality almost as good as professional studio headsets you really can't go wrong with the Siberia Neckband Headset"
"I can't in good conscience knock this product because I have a big melon so despite my issues with my big ears and comfort I am going to give the Siberia Neckband headset our Top Rank award. After all, it's not through any error in design."
"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."
"Would I recommend these? Yup, for anyone that loves using their headset for everything this is an ideal choice for all of your multimedia needs."
"The design of this headset is phenominal. I just wish that there was a set with the same features as the Siberia Neckband, but with audiophile quality and active noise cancellation technology. This set tries to be everything to everyone, and it is when compared to other gaming headsets in its price range."
"The headset performed remarkably well in both titles leaving no room for doubts. Every shot fired in UT3 was audible and every battle cry in TF2 was enjoyable. This headset, without a question has excellent bass performance and it shined when used with our collection of 80's metal. [...]"
"Overall, this headset performed better than our Razer Barracuda that we used for comparison with a subtler footprint than the mighty Barracuda, at the same time making us crave with its elegant and stylish looks."
Score: 9.2 / 10
"It's obvious that a lot of thought went into both the design and construction of the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband. What emerged was a very solid product that could conceivably be the only pair of headphones you'll ever need, especially if you're the type to wear full-size headphones over ear buds when in public and don't really need noise cancellation."
"The list price of $99 is a bit steep, but smart shoppers can find it at a number of online retailers for closer to $50, making the Siberia Neckband headphones a true value for their performance, versatility, and sweet style."
"What isn't without doubt, though, is the SteelSeries Siberia range of headsets are the perfect accompaniment to any budding gamer. The sound quality is as good as you would expect for the price, the microphone is clear and easy to use and the added extras make for a set that does everything you could possibly want of it."
"It looks good, it sounds great and the cables are all decently sized. On top of that, the microphone is good too and I took the Siberia home to test the mic out via Team Fortress 2, where it performed perfectly. The cable is bendy and malleable and the mic itself is perfectly responsive."
"The Siberia Neckband is nothing if not attractive. The shiny white plastic of the earcups is quite in keeping with popular trends in electronics these days and looks good paired with the black grills and connecting band. In use the Siberia also tends to look quite good, as the neckband style doesn't mess up hair cuts (particularly mohawks) and will let you wear a hat or hoody for a DJ-look while gaming. The integrated mic only juts a few millimeters out of the left earcup when retracted, which means you can wear them in public without fear of being harassed for your gaming hobby."
SteelSeries launched the original Siberia Full-Size headset in 2004, and the success of that headset has been enormous. Not only do gamers use it, but also rock musicians, DJ’s, and enthusiasts that just enjoy the design and soundscape. The SteelSeries Siberia Neckband takes the concept of unique design a step further with its behind the neck positioning.
The SteelSeries Neckband can be adjusted to fit all sizes through its retracting headband. Simply pull the earcups out and adjust to your head.
The earcups are XL sized and cloth padded for extreme comfort in all situations.
It was really important to make the Siberia Neckband cross-platform compatible to ensure optimized use with computers, consoles, and portable digital devices. You can use the Neckband with your Xbox 360, just plug it in, listen and talk. We believe that this headset brings the best of both design and performance together in one beautiful looking unit.
The Siberia Neckband features a retractable microphone that can be hidden in the left earcup, which means you can use it when you need it, but don’t have to flash it in public if you don’t want to.
The Siberia Neckband played a vital part of the cast in David May’s music video for the hit single “I’ll be Watching You”.
In Kenya we caught a crew of monkeys in the act of close-examining a Siberia Neckband, in a seriously intense way.
Even the youngest players in the bunch are fit for using the Siberia Neckband as a tool to reach pro-level.
This headset was publicly announced in 2007 during the Electronic Sports World Cup Grand Finals, where SteelSeries teams took home gold in both the Counter-Strike male and female tournament.
