CM Storm Sirus Review
Up Close - The Sirus Headset
The Sirus headset itself is wholly plastic, although the sheer weight of it would make you think it was made of lead. Across the top of the headband is an embossed CM Storm logo in case the glowing logo on the sides isn't easily spotted.
The padding beneath the headband is actually a lot firmer than you'd expect and serves more to keep the plastic off your head than add much comfort.
The microphone is the non-retractable type. It's also completely inflexible. There is an LED at the tip which theoretically shows at a glance if the microphone is muted or not, although it's hardly the brightest we've ever seen and you're far better to glance at the TMC.
There is a fair bit of height adjustment built it to the Sirus, although you'd have to be have ears on your neck to require the full length available. This is sturdy though, which is both good and bad as we'll explain in the conclusion.
Removing an ear-piece and you can see the many speaker holes in for that 5.1 surround goodness.
The cable is of outstanding quality with good, tightly woven, soft cloth braiding covering the whole length.
