    "This is been an awesome mic to use. If anything, it's got too many features. The four different settings are cool, but I don't really have much of a use for all of them. If you're into recording things, this is a great, high-quality mic. If you just need something simple, this is probably overkill. "

    "The SteelSeries Siberia 800 is a very expensive headset, but in my opinion, it isn't worth the price. For the same price, you can buy a separate pair of very good headphones and a separate microphone."
