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
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.
