Today we bring to you a review of CM Storm’s latest audio offering, the Ceres 400 gaming headset.
Since its inception, CM Storm has made a name for itself in the PC gaming market. Products like the Trooper, and Stryker cases, Sentinel line of mice, as well as the Quick Fire line of mechanical keyboards have been very well received by reviewers, and users alike. We ourselves have had the pleasure of reviewing a number of the CM Storm products which we for the most part had nothing but positive things to say. This was especially the case with the Sirus 5.1 Gaming Headset. We pretty much praised the hell out of it.
Lets see if the Ceres 400 can make us gush all over it as like we did with the Sirus (no pun intended).
Ummm you know what? Instead of just giving you a review of the Ceres 400, lets give you the review as well as a comparison of the Ceres 400 with the Sirus 5.1., and Sonuz Gaming Headset. Hey why not? And here we go.

Like most of CM Storm’s PC peripheral offerings, the Ceres 400 comes in a black, and red themed box with the CM Storm logo as well as the Cooler Master logo which is the company under which CM Storm is under.
The headset comes nestled in a hard plastic casing, and is held down with black twist ties.The casing does a pretty good job, in our opinion, of protecting the headset.
Freeing the Ceres 400 from its protective mother is just a simple process of untwisting the ties. After mother, and child have been separated you can see that you get the headset, obviously : ), and a quick start guide.
The Ceres 400 is constructed of black hard plastic, and is a bit smaller then your average PC gaming headset. In comparison to its bigger brothers, the Sirus 5.1, and the Sonuz, the Ceres 400 is the runt of the lott, but that is not a bad thing in the least. Its compact size makes is pretty light and less of a burden on your head, and neck.
