The headset itself is a chunky design and had a somewhat retro appearance. We wouldn't say it was the most beautiful design we have seen in recent years, but it is functional.
Along the top of the inner section is a thick, soft pad which is there to offer some comfort to the top of the head. They are reasonably comfortable to use, however after a few hours I found my head was becoming a little strained.
The microphone can't be retracted, only rotated on the vertical axis. They have included a small LED to show activity of the microphone, seen by a quick glance.
Each of the earpieces can be adjusted to cater to various head sizes. The mechanism is reassuringly strong and it is certainly going to be able to withstand some abuse.
Attention to detail throughout is very good, with the CM Storm logo embossed into the top part of the headband. The braided cable is reinforced into the outer shell for extra durability.
As we mentioned on the previous page, the Sirus headset includes an extra pair of leatherette earpieces, which we prefer.
Exchanging these only takes a few minutes, as you gently pull them from a plastic inner mounting shell and then replace and reattach.
Above, with the leather earpads fitted. Very nice indeed. Both sets of earpads and headband cushion are washable.
