If you're picky about specific features, like sound quality, you may be able to get more feature for your dollar with another headset. The Sirus was reliable out of the box with minimal adjustment. For quality sound and true surround sound that works and works well, you want a Sirus on your head. quote

With just a bit of tweaking the Sirus could be an absolute stand out all across the board, but as it is, it certainly isn't anything to pass up if you see one on the store shelf.

The CMStorm Sirus is like a tank with comfy, velour seats. And like said imaginary vehicle it's a bit expensive.

The CM Storm Sirus 5.1 Gaming Headset is a fantastically well built and sturdy headset that is comprehensively featured throughout. However, we quite bluntly were not overjoyed with the overall level of audio quality, which really only shined through with some audio tests.

This is a specialist product, and ... the price is prohibitive to casual users. If you want top-notch directional audio for gaming, this is a great buy, but most users will appreciate the lower price and greater versatility of a virtual surround-sound headset such as the Plantronics Gamecom 777.

The Sirus will appeal to anyone looking for a high end true 5.1 surround sound headset. Equally comfortable handing game audio, team speak or movies & music the Sirus offers high end performance for gamers or audiophiles.

We feel the CM Storm Sirus tries too hard to offer the 5.1 experience. ... it's comfortable and in stereo mode was very capable, even when using the Tactical Mixing Console. However, it often sounded muffled, with a range of audio suffering in all corners of the audio spectrum.

The 5.1 surround sound stereo audio and build quality are top notch, and they are comfortable enough to wear for prolonged periods. However, they are heavy and the cable is a little short for me.
