The Cooler Master Storm Sirus Headset has killer looks, is comfortable to wear for extended periods, has exchangeable ear cups, flexible mic and sounds fantastic. This headset will be very popular amongst gamers and movies buffs.
I recently purchased a headset shortly after seeing this review. I tried to find this headset in Canada and not even the large online retailers had it. What a shame.
I think I wound up with something even better - The MadCatz Tritton AX Pro.
Like the CM Storm headset, these have 4 drivers in each ear as well ( 1 x 23mm center, 2 x 30mm surrounds, 1 x 40mm sub - the small center drivers actually help reach crisper highs) & changeable microfiber or pleather ear/head pads. Also like the CM Storms the ear cans do not have a pivot point at the headband.
The big difference is the inputs. You can use either analog (5.1 connects - not recommmended due to AD/DA conversions) or optical digital. The AX Pros have no USB connection for sound input (the mic is a USB one though). While that seems like a downside, let me tell you that you have not lived until you have heard Dolby Prologic 5.1 surround through an optical TosLink (Optical TosLink SpDif is available on most full motherboards and sound cards). These are 100% digital. There are no digital/analog conversions done either from the sound card unless you use the analog inputs. So there is no loss of signal or clarity. The lack of a USB attachment will be a detriment for laptop users. For laptop use I would certainly look for a USB-based headset.
The little box in the is a Dolby/DTS decoder to split a digitally-encoded data stream from encoded 2-channel into its original discreet 5.1 format.
Hey guys Logan is back...LINUS VS LOGAN VS RODNEY VS ELRIC VS PAUL...WHO WILL WIN!!!???
who is paul?
Nice review as usual Rodney.
Just curious, what kept the product from getting a 100% ranking?
LegitReviews praised this headset as the greatest thing ever.
They say it isn't anything special when it comes to music so maybe that's it.
Very impressive headset, gonna have to buy it.
Not the best review I have seen I must say.
Where's the mic test? Software included (if any)?
To me it looked like a unboxing without the unboxing.
Honostly I feel the quality of the reviews have declined a lot recently.
It missed the mic test you usualy do on other headsets. Multi driver headphones is a marketing gimmick .
There is no realistic distance for the sound to travel . Stereo is much better for headphone/sets in my opinion . Enough ranting though .
Based on experience with multiple headphones/sets .
A Mic Test would have been nice, maybe later, Rodney is ultra busy this week. We probably should be glad we got anything new this week.
'He's busy -this- week'?? LOL He's been really busy for a couple weeks, but hey, life happens. :-) To be honest, I'm glad to see some new stuff from him.
i understand u get paid to say things like this but
keep in mind who are you reviewing for, the manufacturers or your viewers
Rodney does not get paid to say anything, then again it's never a good idea to pee in your own cornflakes if you know what I mean.
Seriously, things like what? I didn't hear anything that would've been taken wrong..
Do You SERIOUSLY give anything other than kickass rating.
out of almost 1300 reviews u did u gave everything kickass except maybe 3 or 4
Do you SERIOUSLY have nothing better to do than come to his site and bitch and moan? What does it matter what he says at the end anyway? It is the info he gives during the review that matters. Keep up the good work 3dGameMan and don't listen to these trolls.
why does this matter? Because people watch these reviews to help decide what products to choose over different competitors and how do you expect people to choose these products when everything gets a kickass rating? for example, on CM HAF X review, it's Rodneys exact words "it is very important to have dust filters on ALL INTAKE FANS" yet Haf x does not include ANY dust filters especially for their massive 230mm Fans which you can't even buy dust filters for cause of its size. Yet how does he end the review? Overall this is 100% kickass product. how does it get a 100% kickass rating when such important things like dust filter as per Rodney is missing all over the case?
HAF X is a kick ass product. Dust filters can be made yourself with ease. I have the 922 and I don't have any issues with dust without a dust filter.
You can vote to the right of the video for your own rating. "Kickass" is not the same as "100% Kickass".. It's just that "Kickass" is kind of our theme word around here. As the others have said, Rodney asks to review the stuff he finds kickass and if it fails to meet those standards a lower rank is given. I can tell you it might be rare but there are more than 3 or 4 products with lesser scores.
Well, Rodney doesn't review junk. Do you want him to review generic stuff so he can tell us it sucks?
You remember every single one of the ratings he's giving to 1300 products? <.<
Way too many trolls out there. This one is really persistent; two not so smart comments in a row.
Really good review, I like the volume controller very much and removable ear cups. Personally I have the G35 from Logitech. Perfect but the ear cups are really annoying because it gives me sweaty ears.
I was kicked (logged out) out posting my comment. Just now ???
