CM Storm Pulse R Headset Review

Up Close

There is a nice cohesion between the CM Storm products and their packaging, especially with the three models we have for review today which, whilst not being sold as a single item, are clearly designed to be harmonious.

The Pulse-R is in a box within a box, and the headset is very well packaged. It's curiously held in place with plenty of cable ties, despite being in a form fitting plastic holder within a box. It seems strange to have to pull the whole internals out just to get the headset out when it is already held tightly in place. Once out the first thing that grabs you is the square ear pieces. There is no particular reason why square ones wouldn't work, but we think most peoples ears are oval, so it's initially a strange choice. Of course we'll see how it works in practise.

With the CM Storm logo both on the headband and on the metal coverings for the ear pieces, there will be no doubt as to who manufactured this. The construction is extremely rugged, with no flex or give at all. It should survive anything you can throw at it.

Unlike a lot of headsets the ear-pieces aren't hinged at all. Given the variances in the sizes of peoples heads this is a brave decision by Cooler Master, and speaks volumes about their confidence in the design. The height adjustment is two metal bars, which only reinforce the feeling of solidity that the Pulse R gives.

Nice looking headset, one to consider. But SuB really recommends the ASK's which I'm keeping my eye on, bloody expensive though.

PS - probably best to start your own thread than do this on a review thread.
