It was just 6 months ago that we reviewed an in-ear CM Storm gaming headset and while I loved the build quality, style and microphone performance, I couldn’t help but notice that bass was seriously lacking on the drivers. Now this isn’t really a bad thing, the headset was targeted right at the LAN gaming and eSports loving crowd and it’s no secret that clear treble and minimal bass can provide tangible benefits in competitive FPS gaming, since it allows you to better hear the footsteps of your opponents. Unfortunately for CM Storm I expect a little more from my audio devices and since I like to listen to music as much as I love gaming, good all round performance is a must.
CM Storm know they can do even better, which is why they’ve gone back to the drawing board and created the Resonar in-ear gaming earphones, not only do they promise more bass than before, but they also promise an innovative new feature to help you fine tune how much bass you get; well take a closer look at how this works in just a moment.
As you can see from the specifications we have powerful 20 Ohm 8mm drivers, a 1.3m cable, 3.5mm jack and an omni-directional microphone. All relatively straight forward stuff, so lets move on and see what else you get for your money.
The packaging is nicely designed with a few major features detailed on the front and a stylish image of the headphones.
Around the back you’ll find a detailed run down of all the bits you get in the box, as well as the full specifications (see above).
The packaging folds out to give a sneaky view of the headphones, as well as a run down of the BassFX technology.
In the box you’ll find a quick start guide, some spare ear-buds, a 3.5mm 4-pole to dual 3.5mm 3-pole adaptor, a protective carry case and of course, the headset.
