There are no shortage of gaming headsets on the market today, but most typically favour the over ear or on ear design. Cooler Master and their gaming brand CM Storm look set to do something a little different and have created a more compact solution with their in-ear Pitch gaming earphones.
CM Storm are not the first company to do this of course, in ear gaming headsets are nothing new and companies like Steelseries have similar products on the market, but this is the first product like this from CM Storm.
We have high expectation of the Pitch as CM Storm have impressed us in the past with their other gaming audio devices such as the Ceres 300, Ceres 500, Pulse-R, Sirus and Sonus gaming headsets. I’m not expect the same performance as a headset with 40-50mm drivers, but I am expecting a certain level of quality that we’ve come to expect from Cooler Master.
The Pulse comes neatly packaged with a clear window panel in the box that allows us a sneaky peak at the headphones, connections and cables.
Around the back we see a quick run down of the features and the full specifications.
In the box we find that there are two extra pairs of ear buds, there are three pairs in total, small, medium and large. There is a y-splitter cable that takes the standard 4-pole of the headphones and breaks it to separate 3.5mm jacks so you can use the headset on mobile and PC devices.
Also in the box I found a tough pouch that can be used to keep the headphones neatly packed away, handy if you tend to throw them in your bag between uses.
