CM Storm Sirus Review

CM Storm Sirus Review


The CM Storm offshoot of the Cooler Master brand has given us some excellent products, from the Sentinel mouse to the Sniper case.

Now they’ve put their talents into the headset market with the Sirus, a beast of a headset which, on paper at least, has everything you could possibly desire, being a true 5.1 headset with multiple connection methods.

The part that really differentiates the CM Storm Sirus from nearly every other headset out there is the ‘Tactical Mixing Console’ which is an on-desk adjustment for everything from the volume of each individual channel, to the standard muting functions.

So does the Sirus complete your ability to run nothing but CM Storm branded gaming peripherals or have they extended themselves too far?
