CM Storm Sonuz Gaming Headset ReviewWaco - August 2, 2012

Overall I don't have too many complaints about the CM Storm Sonuz headset. The sound quality is pretty good for a gaming headset but it is by no means audiophile grade. They feel well-built and the adjustability of the microphone is perfect. The short length of the wires requires you to either plug them into the front of your computer or use an extension cable, which is something I'd like to have seen included with the headset from the start. The inline volume and microphone control came in very handy and didn't exhibit any odd behavior or noises when adjusting.
So there you have it. The CM Storm Sonuz is a pretty good headset at a reasonable price: $69.99. There are cheaper headsets that sound almost as good and there are more expensive headsets that sound better. These fall right in the middle of the pack in terms of sound quality. The microphone is flawless and the ability to move it to either side is quite nice. I think my only real complaints here are that this headset is definitely only designed for larger sized heads and the bass response could be a bit better. Around the $70 price point there are a lot of options (no less than 58 results on Newegg between $50 and $75) and I think you're best off trying a few of them on at a brick and mortar store before committing to any of them, but the CM Storm Sonuz should definitely be on your list of headsets to try on.
