A Closer Look
The headset is constructed out of really good quality plastics, with a mixture of glossy edges and matt finished panels, giving it a premium look and feel.
The in-line controller is hard wired on the braided cable and comes with all the major functions you should need, including an easy to access microphone mute slider, master volume and chat volume controls, and a PC / console mode toggle.
Around the back you’ll find a sturdy shirt clip, meaning you can ensure the controller is exactly where you need it, when you need it.
On the bottom edge you’ll find a controller connection jack.
The microphone boom is fixed to the side of the ear cup, but can be pivoted up out of the way when not in use.
It features an LED indicator towards the front of the boom that lets you know when you’re muted.
The boom also features a flexible mid section, this means you can bend it a little to a more suitable position, but also means you’re less likely to snap the boom should you be a clumsy oaf.
Each ear cup is pretty deep, this is no doubt required to fit two drivers into each ear cup, the main driver and the bass driver.
The headband is really nicely finished, with a subtle CM Storm inlay on the top rubber coated section.
Some thick memory foam padding with a high quality cloth covering on the top will help provide a good fit and extra comfort for those long gaming sessions.
The back of each drive features a back-lit CM Storm emblem as well as the CM Storm logo in white just above a small mesh section.
A reinforced metal strip runs through the headset to provide extra support and strength to the size adjustment slider. There is a lot of range to the slider too, so the headset should be suitable for both younger gamers, as well as those with a big noggin like myself.
The ear cups are an over-ear design, with lots of soft padding that should help provide a comfortable fit.
Finally we see that when the headset is powered up (USB required) the in-line controller and the headset light up with a gorgeous white LED light.
