The Storm Sonuz is a relatively lightweight, affordable wired gaming headset, that can meet your needs as long as you're not too demanding. As TechRadar puts it, "the Sonuz lacks anything distinct to shout about, beyond its detachable mic arm." Sound quality is good for a headset in this price range, and KitGuru says that "the balance of audio frequencies between deep bass and high treble is well calibrated." Comfort is also good, with Techgage commenting that "the speakers are covered in detachable black foam pads, which are very comfortable even through extended use over several hours."

Combined with its performance characteristics and its very good ergonomics once the user has lived with it for a couple of days, the CM Storm Sonuz should be, for some people, the preferred choice over a surround sound headset.

The design of the CM Storm Sonuz is refreshingly straightforward. The company have made the decision to strip out some optional extras and focus on delivering excellent audio reproduction while reducing the cost to the customer. For the most part they have succeeded.

The microphone is flawless and the ability to move it to either side is quite nice. I think my only real complaints here are that this headset is definitely only designed for larger sized heads and the bass response could be a bit better.

CM Storm has missed a good few tricks from rival manufacturers, and the Sonuz lacks anything distinct to shout about, beyond its detachable mic arm.

When the sale price is taken into consideration it's not easy to justify the extra cost. Large 53mm drivers are rare on headphones/headsets, just as much as a detachable boom microphone, so if these are features that consumers value then the price is within reasonable reach.

This chunky gaming headset provides convincing bass tones and dynamic gaming audio, but it’s less convincing when it comes to music.

The CM Sonuz is a good all-rounder, offering good sound for a competitive price. ... the lack of 5.1 surround sound left a lot to be desired and with the Sonuz having gamers as a primary a target audience.
