CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
So, the boys and girls at SteelSeries have done it again. Another superb sounding headset that will leave your ear drums quivering in glee. The only flaw I could find with the Siberia Neckband headset was that it's a “Neckband Headset”. I have always hated them and despite being more comfortable than other headsets of this design I still found it horribly uncomfortable during extended use. My wife simply loves the neckband design though so I guess you can put down my dislike to a preferential issue.
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.
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.
