The CM Storm Sonuz has released and with its inception into the market, we have a review just to tell you all how good it really is. Is the Cm Storm Sonuz a headset that you should shell out 70 dollars right away? Read our review to find out.
When I first received the headset for review I was excited to test out the new headset because over the years I have become a stickler for sound and objects that had better engulf my experience of music but most preferably gaming. The CM storm Sonuz provides a great solution for all of the aspects that I hold very dear and true to me. The benefits of the CM Storm Sonuz are that it provides an excellent quality of sound for you to hear. Since the device links up to your PC or MP3 player, it provides other options of use. Although, using this on an MP3 is not the most practical usage you will get out of the headset it is still an option for the user, which is convenient.
The device also fits great around your ears; it is almost to the point where it feels as if it was molded to perfectly fit around your ears. It also is efficient in the sound that it provides as it has very definitive clear sound expressed through the headphone jack. This is great for hearing all of the little details that you may be missing while playing a game. What was convenient was that there is a volume control on the headset, which allows you to adjust the sound to your liking. This is great for drowning people’s voice out in the area around you or trying to hear distinct chatter in-game.
Although the CM Storm Sonuz may provide many solutions for certain individuals like myself. There were also a few problems, which I noticed with the headset. As soon, I took it out of the box I noticed the huge aviator design it supported. Although it looks, sleek and smooth there are few issues that I had with the design. First, the earpads that it supports are some of the biggest that I have ever had the chance to use in a long time. It does fit wonderfully on my ears and for this, I cannot complain. The sound is great although it is not a headset that will cancel out chatter all together, as other headsets have been known to do.
There was one glaring issue that I noticed when I took it out and started to plug the headset in. I noticed that it did not connect by USB. The CM Storm Sonuz has a gold point two-way connector that has one hook up for the headset and another hookup for the microphone. I really did not like the fact that I had to plug in more jacks into my already well-connected laptop just for the device to be fully functional. Even after all that, you have to make sure that the thick rope-like cord with the remote has the volume and microphone in the on position. However, this is just the case with me as I like connecting things via USB and find it much more satisfying to myself. I have to say that the gold tips allow for music and movies to play delightfully on the headset.
The earmuffs are surrounded by a comfortable texture that is soothing on the ears. The only thing with headset is that it feels heavy when you put it on your head because off its bulk. Ergonomically it is not bad. It provides comfort and durability so that you do not have to worry about dropping or breaking the headset. Since you have an omni-directional microphone this allows you to adjust the microphone to your liking so that you can be heard better. While the design has it flaws, overall it is a very solid headset.
