Icemat is actually a brand name of the Danish company, Soft Trading. You may not have heard of Soft Trading but you will probably have heard of their other brand - Steel. Yes, Soft Trading is the manufacturer and distributor of the famous Steelpad and Icemat series of professional gaming pads!
In the past, we have reviewed several Steelpad gaming pads, like the Steelpad 4D, Steelpad QcK+ and the Steelpad S&S. Soft Trading has truly produced some of the best gaming pads we have had the opportunity to test.
Soft Trading has since branched out into the audio business with their Icemat Audio line of products. This new line of product consists mainly of two products :
- Icemat Siberia Multi Headset
- Icemat Siberia USB Sound Card
Today, we are going to take a look at their Siberia Multi Headset.
Christened Siberia because of its cool white colour, Soft Trading is touting it as a premium gaming headset. Let's see if that's true!
Let's check our what Soft Trading has to say about the Siberia Multi Headset :
The Icemat Siberia headset is the newest product in the Icemat Audio product-line and is designed for everyone who wishes to have prime quality in sound and voice-communication. The headset follows the high standard of Icemat products which are renowned worldwide for high quality and simple but classy design. Icemat Siberia is not like any other headset, it not only looks different, but it also fits any shape and size. The feedback so far has been great, and we are happy that the users feel that we have created a headset that is unique in both design and sound quality.
Incidentally, Icemat has released a variant of the Siberia headset - the Icemat Black Siberia headset! Check out the press quote :
Due to the amount of positive feedback on the Icemat Siberia Headset and the overwhelming interest in the possibility of making a black version, Soft Trading has listened to the consumers and is proud to present the Icemat Black Siberia Multi Headset. Because of the success of the original Icemat Siberia Headset, Icemat Audio is ready with the black edition of our popular headset NOW. Same great performance and exceptional sound, same cool innovative design, but now coated in black gloss paint.
So, there's no real difference between the original Siberia headset and the new Black Siberia headset. Although this review will be about the original Siberia headset, the new Black Siberia headset is expected to be no different.
