I'm interested in getting a pair of these. Anyone know where they are cheaper as this deal is cold?
I just bought a pair from Box.co.uk as they were the cheapest I could find them. Not sure why it has been voted cold.

How are you finding them? Or have they not arrived yet?
They haven't arrived yet.
Just ordered a set as well. Will arrive in 5 days.
My Siberia 800's just arrived and after initial impressions I am very pleased.

Previous to these headphones I had a pair of Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless On Ear headphones which I returned after a day due to them being uncomfortable, having very noticeable lag, not coming with any bluetooth dongles or adapters and having terrible wireless range.

The Siberia 800's are very comfortable fitting well over my entire ears. I can see myself wearing these for hours happily. Sound quality is on par with the Momentum's I would say with the added benefit of having EQ settings on the wireless box. The wireless box itself is very nice looking and being able to charge a battery in it is great.

Wireless range is fantastic. With the Sennheiser's I would have disconnects walking around the same room the transmitter was in. With the Siberia 800's I can walk around my entire house upstairs and downstairs without disconnects. In fact I went out my back garden and was able to walk 5 meters outside before it cut off. So that is about 15 meters through two walls.

There is no perceivable lag when watching videos with people speaking using the Siberia 800's. There was up to half a second delay on the Sennheiser's.

I have tried the wireless box plugged into the computer using both USB and Optical and I think the optical sounds better.

Overall I am glad I chose these headphones. So much for proper headphones beating out "gaming headsets"!

Thanks for the impressions. How's the highest volume? I've heard it's not that high
Mine arrived by Hermes this morning. My set up is PC only, using optical and usb outputs for gaming sound + teamspeak respectively.

Optical cable is a bit short, so expect to purchase a longer one.

Volume at maximum settings is uncomfortable for me, so i use volume at 70% on the PC and 70% on the headphones

microphone as mentioned by other reviewers is passable, however if you play music at high volumes, there is a fair amount of sound leakage. Usually not an issue unless you use skype someone whilst listen to high music (tbh, i dont understand how you can do this, becuase you cant hear the caller speak if your music is so loud you get leakage).

On the box is says it supports Steel Engine 3, but this is not true, Engine 3 does not work with these headphones yet (might be added later on).

Sound quality is excellent, better than my old Turtle beach x300's which had bluetooth as well as wireless - on a side note, dont buy the x300's as the head band is plastic, it'll crack.

On comfort, i feel the x300's are more comfortable, but i read that you can bend the Siberia 800's becuase they use a metal head band, and so the head band is flexible. After doing that, they are super comfortable.
