Well one thing that can certainly be said is that the headset is HUGE, easily the largest I have had my hands on to date. To give you an idea of size… the black strip on the pad is about the width of the average ear, these are massive.
Materials is a very tough plastic with a steel band inside the structure for strength, the ear cups extend and swivel on two axis to fit virtually any head shape, in fact the freedom of movement is so great even Sloth from the Goonies could wear these.
Styling is ultra-modern and easy on the eye although the massive bulk may put some off the Storm Sirus
They are a little heavy but the top band is well cushioned with a large pad that should provide adequate comfort
The mic boom is strong and flexible with an activity light on the end of the arm that will illuminate red for activity, although you may need to go slightly cross-eyed to see it when wearing the headset…. Never an attractive look.
The multi driver ear cups are laid out with centre output Top (right in pic), left and right channels in the middle and bass handled by the larger 40mm driver in the bottom of the ear cup (left in pic).
The Storm Sirus comes with a control hub that can be used for speaker balance, muting the headset and a master control dial, construction is good with strong materials with a very heavy feel to the unit. The three principal buttons are coated with a rubberized finish as is the dial surround. The master control dial is a very nice feeling matt finish aluminium with knurled sides and a finger depression for “spinners”.
With a heavily rubberized foot to keep the hub in place
All contacts are gold plated, with two methods of hooking the head set up, those with plenty of use ports can the two, yep two, USB connectors to hook the headset up, one USB provides power and the second provides the audio signal.
The second method uses a combination of a single USB for power and three 3.5mm jacks using the standard on board or sound card outputs.
