To properly test the CoolerMaster Storm Sirus 5.1 Gaming Headset, I am going to be testing it's gaming capabilities, as well as it's ability to play music and movies all in surround sound. Please keep in mind that testing of a Gaming Headset is very subjective to the user, however this review is intended to be as objective as possible.

Testing Setup:


5.1 Surround Sound Music:

While playing music and wearing the CoolerMaster Storm Sirus 5.1 Gaming headset, you are going to be able to put yourself into your music with the surround sound that you have in each ear. With the select button on the control pod, you can manipulate the different speakers such as the Front, Rear, Center, and Bass, separately from each other for the best mix depending on which type of music you are listening to. I listen to just about every genre of music and having the controls right here while I am working on something sitting at the computer does make it nice and easy if I choose to adjust the amount of bass.

5.1 Surround Sound Movies:

Watching movies while wearing a headset is not my prefered way to watch a movie, however it does have a few benefits such as not waking people up who may be sleeping. So what I ended up doing was grabbing one of my favorite DVDs off the shelf, National Treasure, to see exactly how well the headset sounded while watching a movie. Like I had mentioned, I would much rather lay down on a couch and watch a movie, however sitting in front of the computer and watching a movie does have its benefits. During some of the scenes where there was a lot going on, it did almost seem like I was right there while it was happening and many of the little detailed noises sounded like they were happening on the correct sides of me.
