CM Storm Sirus Review
Our Sirus turned up in OEM style blank packaging, so whilst we can't comment from personal experience on the design we know it to be a bold red and black affair. Certainly it's sturdy and should keep your Sirus in prime condition until it arrives.
Starting with the various extras, the Sirus comes with the sponge and cloth covers attached, but there are some leather ones supplied should you prefer that option.
There are two ways of running the Sirus, either via the USB Tactical Console or just running cables into your sound card. Either way you choose the headset itself is connected via a 10 pin din.
Here is the main part of the Sirus, the 'Tactical Mixing Console'. The headphone button is for muting, the microphone one for muting the microphone and the central button for switching between the various channels that you can control the volume of using the central dial. This does require two USB ports though so if you're short on space you might prefer to just run the cable and then control the volume with software. Although the red glow that the TMC gives is very pleasant.
Again we have a 10 pin din to attach the Sirus headset to the mixing console should you choose. It comes with a whopping two inches of cable, so you definitely can't have it tucked away somewhere.
And here is the headset itself, which we'll take a closer look at on the next page.
