Not often does a product come along that is so exceptional that I go out and get one to keep for myself, with the Storm Sirus I could not resist. The design and audio quality id just too good to pass up on, and for the price point (£87 best price...

Reproducing 5.1 audio in such a confined space such as a headset, more often than not results in varying results ranging from at best, mediocre to outright pathetic. The physics involved simply does not afford accurate positional audio to be of much...

What is there to say about the CoolerMaster Storm Sirius 5.1 Gaming Headset other than WOW. I was quite impressed with the headset as soon as I pulled it out of the packaging. Not only does the headset look really nice from the get-go, but the...

After testing three different surround sound gaming headsets since starting here at Techgage, I think it's safe to say that these types of products will never be truly geared towards music and movies - though the Sirus certainly improves upon...

The Sirus headphones are a bit of a mixed bag. They are most comfortable in a gaming environment and least comfortable when playing high quality musical content. Movie performance is somewhere in between. I believe CM did make a few too many...

This is one damn fine headset. Easily one of the highest quality I’ve ever reviewed. It is geared towards a gaming audience so it certainly excels at that more than it does at reproducing music, but it still does that very well and movies are also...
