CM Storm Sirus-C Gaming Headset Preview

CM Storm Sirus-C Headset Preview (Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4)

Recently CM Storm, the gaming brand which is part of Cooler Master, announced the latest in their range of Sirus headsets. The Sirus-C is a multi-platform device with 2.2 channel technology and support for PS4; today we take an initial look at one of the first samples available.

Packaging and Bundle

Cooler Master (and CM Storm) package the Sirus C in a chunky box which gives us a nice clear image of the headset as well as a window through to the device itself. The various sides of the box have plenty of product info and then inside we find a set of product documentation, RCA cable and Xbox 360 chat connector.

Like the box, the Sirus-C is pretty chunky… in a good way. The main body of the headset is a rugged plastic with some glossy areas to add flash and the headband is nicely padded, as are the ear cups. We get CM Storm branding across the top of the headband and our 3m braided cable ends in USB and 3.5mm connectors.

CM Storm allow vertical and horizontal movement on the ear cups and around 1inch extra can be added to the length of the headset on each side. Each of the foam cups, with cloth covers, can be removed and on the left side we find our mic. In terms of specification each earpiece has two drivers, a 44mm main unit and 40mm woofer. The former has 50ohm impedance and the latter, 32ohm with 20Hz, 20KHz response and 118-116dB sensitivity. Our microphone is omni-directional with a frequency response of 100Hz to 10KHz with sensitivity of -34dB +/-3dB (0dB=1V/PA).

CM Storm add a number of LEDs to our headset. Each ear cup has the while light up grill and logo, the mic ends in a white LED and the control unit lights up red/white depending on our mic status.

Speaking of that control unit (with built in AMP), it has two dials with one controlling volume and the other chat level. A switch sits on the front for mic mute and then on the side we have another that switches between console and PC mode. For consoles (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360) we have the standard option of using USB/3.5mm/RCA combo. On the PC we connect purely via USB.

That’s it for today’s quick preview, check back soon for our opinions on the headset itself.

RRP: £79.99
