Icemat Siberia USB Combo Headset Article Author : Silverstrand

Lately, there has been an avalanche-like growth in the headset industry. This is in many ways a direct consequence of the increasing number of multiplayer games. In games like Counter-strike, for example, real-time communication is a vital detail, if you want to prevail. And what's more, the audio quality has improved dramatically lately and you can practically get equal quality from a pair of $40 headphones like the quality you would get from a $400 HIFI system. Of course, the LAN culture has contributed in some ways as well; speakers are not very practical to haul around to LANs, so headphones are the obvious choice for a LAN addict.

Contents and Packaging:



The Icemat Siberia came in an attractive but thin cardboard box with a plastic transparent front section. On the back of the packaging is technical information about the Siberia in several languages and a small diagram labeling the different parts of the headset. Through the transparent plastic on the front of the box, you can see the headset itself, the volume control device and the microphone, all of which are enclosed in a white plastic base. I always love being able to actually see what Iím buying.


Inside the Siberia box, Icemat includes:

1 x Siberia headset
1 x 3.5mm to 6.3mm jack converter
1 x Microphone
1 x 1.8m volume control and extender cable
1 x Set of Velcro pads
1 x Microphone holder
