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.
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.
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
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.
Excerpt: 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?
Conclusion: We moeten beginnen met toegeven dat de Ceres-400 één van de goedkoopste headsets is die we ooit hebben getest. Het meeste vergelijkingsmateriaal is net een tientje duurder. Er zijn meerdere pluspunten te noteren. De kabel is voldoende lang en lekker flexibel.
Excerpt: Dans la famille CM Storm, nous voudrions l’entrée de gamme ! Bonne pioche ! Après avoir mis la main sur le Sirus destiné aux joueurs exigeants, voici que nous récupérerons le Ceres-400, un casque micro à prix plancher. Alors ? Fils prodigue ou mauvaise graine ?
Pros: Plutôt joli, Agréable à porter, Peu cher
Cons: Des basses en vacances, Manque global de puissance, Télécommande peu pratique
