I was looking for a good headset for gaming and for music too. I never liked those bulky head phones which can be heavy, and can hurt your ears and make you look like an idiot. These in comparison look stylish and are nice and compact if you are moving around with them.
The SteelSeries Siberia Neckband was rather expensive, but I think that it's worth every penny of the price it! I liked the fact it was also made for music (not only gaming) and is even compatible with the Xbox 360.
When gaming, you can use the retractable microphone to talk to others, and has great quality over teamspeak or skype and is fun to communicate in games. They've knocked the nail on the head regarding the size, it's great for carrying around and the sound quality is superb. You definately won't regret buying these, even if it is a bit expensive!
The Steelseries Siberia Neckband gives excellent sound quality during gaming and music and is perfect for carrying around if you go to gaming parties. These are compact yet cool. The only negative is the price tag on these.
The new SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset features a similar eye-catching visual design, as well as the popular white theme, that made the original Siberia headset so popular. The comfort and soundscape in the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset was fine-tuned with the help of professional gamers, electronic DJ's and rock musicians.
The combined input and feedback from this broad range of picky audiophiles helped create a soundscape optimized for a multitude of uses. Final sound optimizations for gaming were done with the help of Abdisamad 'SpawN' Mohamed, one of the world's most accomplished Counter-Strike players with 12 major international grand-slam championship titles and "Best of Class" awards by leading eSport sites in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
The headset also plugs directly into the Xbox 360 controller, where in-game sound and voice communication can be combined.
