"Overall the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband outperformed by expectations. By combining an excellent design with a great visual aesthetic and rockin performance, SteelSeries has once again outdone themselves. "
"There’s not a single thing I can find wrong with the Siberia Neckband"
"The Steelseries Siberia Neckband is hands down one of the best headsets we've tested. It produces studio quality sound that is crystal clear and loud, with deep bass and crisp highs. It complements perfectly with any Apple iOS devices, and of course great to use with your PC, Mac or notebook. It's a real winner!"
"If you want truly great sound quality and a thoughtful design, it’s going to be hard to beat what the Siberia Neckband for iOS has to offer. Are there cheaper options? You bet. Will they sound this good? Not a chance."
"Here’s the deal - The Siberia Neckband is dead comfortable. Its unique fit takes a bit of getting used to, but then you’ll quickly see why it’s great. First off, if you’re a hat wearer, it won’t get in your way. Second, the behind-the-neck fit seems to just work better for activity. It doesn’t tend to want to slip off of your head as a normal headphone does."
"For $80, good luck finding other headphones that sound this good. iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch support isn’t just another added benefit, it’s a mainstay for the device and may prove incredibly useful as gaming evolves on Apple’s handhelds. Even now, telephony and media viewing is vastly improved using the Siberia Neckband over competing devices. I can’t recommend the Siberia Neckband enough."
"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 Siberia Neckband is an extremely comfortable headset that can be used either inside or outdoors providing the same high level of sound quality. With similar high levels of quality on voice transmission the Siberia Neckband is an all-round winning package."
"With the Siberia Neckband SteelSeries have rejuvenated the Siberia series and delivered a headset compatible with the most popular mobile music device in the world. With a striking design which is built to compliment Apple's range of devices it certainly makes us stand out from the crowd."
"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."
"To sum up, if you’re looking for a solid set of iPod and iPhone-compatible headphones, go strap on a SteelSeries Siberia Neckband. They’re designed specifically for iOS devices and have on-board controls similar to those found on Apple’s earbuds. The super comfy cans won’t over-stress your ears, the neck resting fit is perfect for anyone who doesn’t particularly like traditional headphones and the sound quality doesn’t fail to impress."
"The first thing you notice is the strap, which goes behind your head, rather than on top of it - ostensibly to make headgear-wearing a lot easier."
"We love the sound quality on these cans: playing games like Rage HD, Dead Space, and Infinity Blade makes you feel like you're part of the action."
"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
"...What is this? A 360 extension in a PC geared product? Oh the horrorÉ just kidding. In reality this was one of the really cool features that I dug with this headset"
"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 Siberia Neckband is now available in an alternate design for mobile devices like the iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad®. The soundscape has been optimized to reproduce crisp highs, crystal clear vocals and deep, balanced bass levels for an impressive set of cans.
The SteelSeries Neckband can be adjusted to fit all head sizes by simply extending the band or minimizing it. Instead of resting on top of the head like most headsets, the Siberia Neckband is designed to rest behind the head on the user’s neck. A good tip: extend it by pulling apart the two earcups before you place it behind your head and to optimize the fit, simply give a gentle nudge to each earcup when you have it on to.
