CM Storm Sirus 5.1 Gaming Headset Review

 

Today we'll be taking a look at the Sirus True 5.1 surround sound gaming headset from CM Storm, the gaming peripheral arm of Cooler Master. The Sirus is the first headset produced by CM Storm and given the quality of the previous products we have seen...

The Sirus will appeal to anyone looking for a high end true 5.1 surround sound headset. Equally comfortable handing game audio, team speak or movies & music the Sirus offers high end performance for gamers or audiophiles.

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 ;...

On-the-fly adjustment with Tactical Mixing Console ; Respectable sound quality ; True Surround Sound ; USB or analogue TSR connectors ; Highly customizable with software or sound card ; Works without software

USB interface subject to interference ; USB interface is power hungry ; Limited headband adjustments ; Microphone had low volume ; Software interface not intuitive

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

 

In the last few years we've seen a number of 5.1 headsets, which use multiple speakers in each earpiece to give you real surround sound for games and movies with 5.1 soundtracks. To go with the dedicated surround sound headset, Cooler Master's CM Storm...

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