Icemat Siberia Multi Headset


When it comes to gaming mouse pads, the Icemat is one of the biggest names out there on the market producing high quality products to fit a gamer's needs. Aside from gaming mouse pads, Icemat has recently increased its target population, expanding their production to audio products such as MP3 players and headphones. Thanks to Icemat, I have the privilege of reviewing their newly released Icemat Siberia Multi Headset which hopes to quench a gamer’s thirst for high performance gaming headphones.

First of all, here are the specifications for the Icemat Siberia:

The Icemat comes packaged in a very stylish box with all specifications and features clearly printed on the box.

The headphones themselves have a very stylish design; the white and black theme fits the headphones and microphone very nicely. Each side of the headphone are opened (speakers exposed to exterior) and padded to ensure the most comfortable gaming possible. In addition to the wire frame construction at the top of the headphone, an elastic band is added to provide extra comfort to the gamer makes it possible for the headphones to fit several different sizes. The headphones are extremely comfortable to wear as the elastic top portion helps alleviate the heavy feeling of the headphones. A handheld volume regulator is also very nice, as it allows volume to be directly controlled conveniently without any hassles. As mentioned, a ¼ inch to 1/8 inch audio adapter is included just in case.

A deviation from regular headsets is the uni-directional microphone which must be clipped on somewhere, rather than being attached to the headphone. While this may be a hassle to some, it possesses the versatility to be placed in various areas that may be beneficial for certain non-gaming circumstances. Moreover, a moveable microphone allows the gamer to adjust it for the most clear and audible conversations.

Plenty of audio cable (1.8 meters) for the headphones and microphone are provided to ensure that the gamer has plenty of wire to connect this headset to their system or audio system, which may be located away from their computer. Overall, the appearance of the headset and design are very admirable and impressive. Can Icemat continue its streak of successful creations into the audio industry? Read on to find out.
