      "The heavy recommendations and accolades come due to a solid software suite for the CM Storm Sirus, which coupled with the Tactical Mixing Console makes it a killer deal with the plethora of options, customization, adaptability  and flexibility the entire package offers. Add the headset itself into the mix and we are left with an amazing trifecta. If you are scheming for a new gaming headset with all the features one could desire, it is difficult to recommend anything other than the Cooler Master Storm Sirus 5.1 headset."

      "The CM Storm Sirus is a great gaming headset there is no doubt about that. It offers exceptional spatial sound effects and can add greatly to explosions and gunfire."

      "All in all, this is a wonderful headset. Aside from my clumsy tendencies in managing to drop the UFO – uhm “Control Pod”- on myself twice, I have to give Kudos to Cooler Master. The included instructional PDF explains everything in simple terminology that makes everything easy to understand. The driver and software settings aren’t completely easy to access at first, but a quick right click on Speakers or Mic solved that. The lights are a nice aesthetic touch, and the UFO is constructed very stoutly. This is a headset that I would recommend to anyone."

      "Overall, CM Storm’s gaming headset line provides a decent spectrum of choice for all kinds of gaming enthusiasts, from competitive e-athletes to casual weekend LAN partiers.  The CM Storm Sirus 5.1 is head and shoulders above the rest, not just in features and performance but in price as well.  It is extremely comfortable to wear and I could say with confidence that it is the most comfortable headset I have ever used. The comfortable fit alone makes it worth half the price.  The CM Storm Sonuz also provides excellent audio quality even without the software enhancements and conveniences of the Sirus 5.1.  Lastly, the latest addition to the CM Storm family: the CM Storm Ceres 400 lacks the excellent build quality and premium aesthetics of the Sirus and Sonuz headsets but takes a no-frills approach and provides a well-rounded alternative to essential gaming audio needs."

      "#1 CoolerMaster Sirus – The Best Option When Money Is No Object"

      » Details : July 2012

      "Coolermaster’s Sirus headset may not be the flashiest headset. But what it lacks in visual flare it more than makes up for in audio performance. As people who constantly jump between games and music playback, we most appreciate the Sirus 5.1 headset for being able to handle not only gunfire and engine sounds, but complex music playback, too. Catering to one or the other is easy enough. Catering to both, as we’ve seen, is apparently pretty difficult so we have to give Coolermaster credit here. Whether it be games, movies or music, the Sirus 5.1 can deliver some of the best audio around."

      "Overall, I would give these headphones a 5 out of 5, for a very solid design, great sound quality, deep bass, and excellent value.  I would recommend them to all gamers who are looking for a great set of headphones at a good price point."

      "This very comfortable headset may not offer quite as many bells and whistles as some, but it still sounds excellent and boasts some of the best ergonomics and design I’ve had the pleasure to experience. The CM Storm Sirus 5.1 is my hands-down favorite PC gaming headset from 2011."

      "From style to comfort to sound, Cooler Master has broken into the audio market in a big way. But, this also carries a big price tag. At $130, the Sirus is the most expensive headset I have tested so far, but when used for games the price premium becomes a moot point due to the performance. I'm sure that's what will win over the vast majority of potential buyers."

      "Gaming is again the specialty of these headphones, with movies being a distant second.  If a user typically plays games for hours on end, and cannot do so with a true 5.1 speaker set, then these will be the preferred products for that particular person."

      "The Sirus True 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is a great headset for gamers to have we feel.

      "The headset is a true 5.1 design with three 30mm speakers in each ear cup along with a 40mm woofer. Combined with its control module, which doubles as a USB audio card, it allows precision adjustments of all channels to match your gaming environment. The module is also heavy and won't fly off your desk in the heat of battle. "

      » Details  Silver : July 2011

      "Comfort is a main issue for those about to spend hours playing with a headset, and the Sirus just has a sturdiness that is deceiving – the product is quite comfortable despite not being that light on the head. The acoustic isolation of the earcups (especially the cloth ones) left a few unanswered phone calls right by our side."

      "Audio performance is very good and as I mentioned before there were some instances where I actually had to turn the bass down which is unheard of in a gaming headset, especially one without a power assisted rumble module.  The True 5.1 nature of the Storm Sirus gaming headset proved that surround gaming is possible with this product and made picking off rouge snipers extremely easy as they tried to sneak up behind me.  "

      » Details  Highly Recommended : July 2011

      "The Sirus produced outstanding sound quality when it came to gaming and listening to our favorite tunes. A lot of this is from the fact the Sirus are a true 5.1 head set and not one that is 'stereo' and requires heavy usage of a software application to get it right."

      » Details  9/10 : July 2011

      "The Storm Sirus is a fantastic piece of equipment for any user. Hearing is a sense that is crucial to all types of media, and Cooler Master helps you take advantage of it with 360 degree directional surround sound, powerful bass, clear audio, and a mixing console that puts it all at your fingertips."
