Video Review – Cooler Master CM Storm Sirus 5.1 Channel Gaming Headset

 

The CM Storm Sirus is Cooler Master's first foray into the gaming audio market. And while the market is fairly crowded, offering many options for gamers, this headset seems to find its way with a specific gaming focus. As we…

Very well tuned for gaming, in particular, FPS shooters ; A nice and heavy command dial that provided useful adjustments and functionality ; Great looking headset that isn’t bulbous and tastefully coloured ; Red LEDs show that you're ready to PWN ;...

Mic sensitivity is unsuitable for a wide range of gaming situations (with the exception of noisy LANs and loud yelling) ; CM Storm software was nice to look at, but not as intuitive as it needs to be to be useful

As predicted, the Sirus gave a solid performance. Sound quality was respectable giving clean tones from 20 Hz to 18 kHz. The 40 mm bass drivers provided clean sound without blasting the ears. Sometimes in games the bass was overpowering, but this was...

Cooler Master CM Storm Sirus 5.1 review

 

Although it's expensive, the Sirus 5.1 is our new favourite headset for true surround sound

The CM Storm Sirus 5.1 sounds far better than any virtual surround sound system, and it's brilliant for hardcore gamers, although stereo music performance is something of an afterthought. The headset, although heavy, is comfortable to wear for extended...

Greg's thoughts on the CM Storm Sirus True 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset...

A great Headset that sounds good both in games as well as music and movies; but maybe at this price they need to!
