Summary: While we look back at this sleek and stylish headset, a few talking points come to mind. First this headset is well designed and has a very clean and nice look to it while still being very light in weight as compared to most headsets. It also has a nice sturdier than normal cord with the inline control unit that in my opinion should be on every headset.
Pros: Light weight, Sleek and Stylish, Inline volume and mic control unit, Soft and comfy headband and ear pad cushioning, Noise canceling ear pads, Clear microphone quality, Price
Cons: Ear pads should have been made into ear cups, Treble and voice levels seem a little bit muffled, Bass, depending on situations, can be over powering, Soft/distant sounding mic volume with slightly elevated tone/pitch
Conclusion: Let's be honest; the aesthetics aren't why we purchase a gaming headset. This headset, however, performs every bit as well as it looks. The 40mm drivers are a nice size and deliver deep bass while gaming, watching movies, or listening to music. The test revealed that the bass might be a bit heavy during gaming sessions, yet it is not a deal-breaker. The bass will be appreciated when watching movies and listening to music.
Pros: Quality, durable construction, Comfort level during long sessions, Deep bass, Large 40mm driver, Visually appealing design, Adjustability of headband and microphone
Cons: Marketed as ultra portable. I disagree., Marketed as preventing outside noise, which it does not, No detachable microphone
Excerpt: Many things have being shaken up globally in the last couple of years, and to mention just one facet it's the way in which companies have had to diversify their product catalog's in order to keep showing green every financial year, and to avoid the ever present red zone that has consumed many big strong companies in the past since 2008. From a technical perspective the Ceres-400 is a fairly run of the mill headset.
Summary: In a direct comparison with
, we found the Ceres 400 to be a better choice; the headset is lighter and more comfortable, and it is less bulky. The microphone bends just a little more than the one found on the bigger model, but it still needs adjustments every once in a while to be kept bent.
Summary: The CM Storm Ceres-400 gaming headset is an awesome entry-level stereo headset. The $49.99 price point and impressive make this a no-brainer for someone looking for a great headset that can be used with more than just a PC.
Summary: I wasn’t expecting much from a £35 headset but the Cooler Master Ceres 400 has proved me wrong, as long as you factor in what one would expect for the price, then the Ceres 400 represents really good value for money. The Ceres 400 came well packaged, although there’s not much else in the box, save for a basic user guide. The headset seems relatively sturdy, with no cheap hard plastics (that are likely to snap!) used in its construction.
Excerpt: 63 Flares 63 Flares × CM Storm is back in the KitGuru labs, but this time it’s a headset that gets put through our demanding test procedures. Can the affordable Ceres-400 prove that CM Storm has what it takes to compete in the sub-£40 gaming headset market?
