points first: the Cooler Master Storm Sirus is a very comfortable gaming headset
with a good microphone. But unfortunately, that's about it. If you listen
carefully to the audio quality of this thing, then you'll hear that there is a
lot of room for improvement. We would wish that Cooler Master was using better
drivers and that they did better fine tuning on them. Like this there would be
clear high as well as medium tones and crips basses instead of undifferentiated
boom boom noise. Especially because of the price tag which is quite steep with
estimated CHF 140.- (est. EUR 117.-) it would be nothing more than appropriate
that there was decent sound quality.
Nevertheless wearing comfort is very good. The ear pads are super comfortable
and the headset fits perfectly. Even playing with the headset on and wearing
shutter glasses doesn't make you feel pain. You can play almost for as long as
you want and it's still a pleasure to wear the Sirus from this point of view.
What also needs to be improved is the software. Instead of adding an awful
lot of features Cooler Master would have been better of with making the software
easier to use. Therefore we really hope that the menu gets much easier to
understand otherwise the software will remain disappointing.
We very much regret that regarding the audio quality the Sirus simply cannot
compete with other headsets, which are available for the same price. Also the
software should be improved. If both these major point would be better than the
Sirus could esily get a five start award but with these downsides it's only two
