Conclusion: The Cooler Master Sirus gaming headset is a fantastic first time attempt for the company. At an affordable $129, most hardcore gamers will find the Sirus work great, and thanks to their excellent build quality, are sure to last for quite some time.
Pros: Excellent build quality, Great for gaming once settings are adjusted, Good value, Desktop control works great

Summary: With the CM Storm name attached, Cooler Master has a lot of hype to live up to. I am happy to report they have exceeded my expectations. The headset provides crystal clear surround sound with the best bass response I have experienced in a 5.1 headset.
Pros: Crystal clear 5.1 positioning, Best in class bass, Choice of ear cups, Quality of construction, Swing away mic with mute, Choice of Analog or USB connection

Pros: » Very comfortable ear pads, » Impressive sound quality, » Fabric and leather ear pads included, » Nice braided cables, » High quality construction, » Heavy control base
Cons: » Short cable from base to headset, » Can't turn earpiece away from ear, » No "tick" marks when extending earpieces, » Microphone light very dim, » Heavy
