Naming a product Sirus right now might attract an odd crowd, then again maybe it is best that they are using headphones to watch or listen to their favourite series. CoolerMaster’s newest member of the Storm lineup is not a case, mouse or fan, it is a 5.1 surround headset. One of the more interesting features is that there is only one wire coming from the headset, connecting to a small round controller. From there you connect to the PC using USB, or preferably, 4 of the analog jacks on the back of your PC. The controller allows you to adjust the levels of each channel separately, which is a very nice touch. Unfortunately however Neoseeker adjusted it they couldn’t bring it up to audiophile standards, but they have no reservations recommending it for gamers.
"Not one to be left out, Cooler Master enters the PC audio market with a 5.1 surround sound headset of its own that can connect to your audio source via analog jacks or USB port. See how well the Sirius stacks against more specialized headsets in our latest audio review."
