With so many headsets available that are specifically designed for gamers, it makes it difficult to choose the right one. We are taking a look at the IceMat Black Siberia, based off the original Siberia that has been given countless awards. Let’s jump right in and take a fresh look at this cool product!

Final Thoughts

I am glad that I finally had a chance to check out this headset, because I am very impressed. First and foremost, they are extremely comfortable. I believe someone could wear them all day and have no issues at all. The sound quality is also very impressive, especially at loud volume.

I found that the Siberia had the advantage over the Altec AHS602i in Music and Gaming… especially gaming. However, for movies I enjoyed using the Altec’s primarily because of the bass booster that came with that set.

Other features I enjoyed on this headset is the fact that you can remove the microphone if you do not need it. It’s also non-intrusive regardless of where you place it, and sounds come out crisp and clear. I wish the clip was a little larger so that it could be clipped to an LCD monitor though.

If you want to use the volume control on the headset, that will also allow you a total of 8.2 feet of cord. This is quite long, but if you need the extra leeway, it’s there.

Overall, I am awarding the IceMat Black Siberia’s a 9 out of 10, and an Editors Choice award. They retail for $70US, and are well worth it. Unless you are the type of person who watches movies on their computer constantly, don’t hesitate to pick up a pair.
