IceMat Black Siberia
 
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!

Good review
 
Hey Rob, nicely done, but i "think" i found a spelling mistake, ill paste it below.

The microphone for the Siberia is not attached to the headphones, like most others. Instead, it's a separate piece on it's own cord. It's quite small, and has a clip so that you can attach it to your shirt. This is one problem I had with the Siberia, ***********albeit a small one.************ The clip is not very large, so it's hard to clip anywhere except for your shirt. It was too small to clip to my laptop monitor, although I hoped it would.
I don't now for sure if it is, but it confused the hell outta me :p

Does this headset have an off/on switch for the mic?

hi.

i have a quick question about these headphones

if you wore glasses while using them, are they still comfortable after long periods of use?

i currently own the mdr-v300s and have a problem with how tightly they fit. they press my ear against my glasses, making it so after 20 minutes of use, they become uncomfortable.

does the icemat have this problem?

Hmm, I haven't used the IceMat for a while, but I wear glasses. I had no problems wearing them for hours at a time. They've actually been some of the best headphones I've used for that reason.

why'd you switch? What do you use now?

If you still have them, can you check to see how tightly they fit for me? :)

thanks a lot for your review

I switched just because I prefer the way the mic is on the 601i Altec Lansings. They also have surround sound, so some things sound a little better.

I don't have the headphones anymore, I just gave them to my sister before she moved. I used them for months though, and played games for hours. I never had any problems with them.

sorry to be a pest
but i only keep asking because my ears are ultra sensitive.

do you remember if it ever pressed your ears into your glasses?

Rob Williams 05-27-2006 09:44 PM

I think it would be hard to get a headset that is 'perfect' for this reason. Though, I have used four different headsets in the past year, and the Siberia was by far the most comfortable when it comes to glasses.

Out of any headset I have used, this would be your best bet. I don't know of any others on the market that could possibly be more comfortable than these, unless you are willing to pay out the behind :)

I've got a pair of Koss UR-40 headphones and they do not press your ears into your glasses at all. They're extremely light, have a webbed headband, are foldable, cover your ears rather than set on them and sound simply awesome. The sad part is they have no mic. If you want a great sounding pair of stereo headphones and don't mind spending a bit for them ($49.99 at Radio Shack, less online via Froogle) you can't go wrong. If you need a full on headset with a mic, well, I dunno.

There is a USB and non USB one.

Which is better for use with the computer?

I'm not really computer savvy, so I don't really understand the extra info with the USB.

It seems there's extra surround sound and stuff so the USB is better?

Someone please help me clarify this. Thanks in advance!
