Coolermaster is a brand that needs no introduction to any tech enthusiast. Their cases, cooling products and PSUs have a pretty good reputation in the market. Recently they have been diversifying into the gaming segment with mice, keyboards and other gaming accessories.

CoolerMaster Sirus 5.1 headphone system is another step in their recent diversification in the gaming segment. They hope to target gamers and audiophiles alike with the Sirus.

To target a 5.1 headphone for gamers and audiophiles at the same time is difficult since more and more games support 5.1 surround sound but music is 2 channels (stereo) only.So the headphone will have to provide great 2 channel and 5.1 channel performance at the same time. Whether CM can really kill 2 birds with one stone (or headphone in this case) remains to be seen!

Many gaming headsets claim to surround sound gaming but in reality provide just 2 headphone drivers resulting in stereo (or 2 channel sound). They give the illusion of surround sound via software EQ and DSP tricks. The Sirus, however, is a true multichannel headphone with 8 discrete speakers for separate front, rear, centre and subchannels. The headphone also has a unidirectional microphone with background noise cancellation to ensure good quality conversations online with teammates.

Cooler Master MH630 Headset Review

The Cooler Master MH630 is a headphone without a DAC. Consequently, it doesn't have any fancy RGB lighting and effects. If you love to have RGB bling on a headset, this isn't for you. But the MH630 has everything else you could ask for- a detachable cable, built-in volume control and a detachable microphone. Since the Cooler Master MH630 has a 3.5mm jack it works great on almost anything you can connect it to. Moreover, there is also a splitter to enable you to connect it to a source that has a separate mic input.

Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has a good share of mechanical keyboards since its CM Storm days. But its venture towards gaming mouse has an erratic hit or a miss. I did like the CM Storm Alcor and the shell of the CM Storm Mizar but that was about it. Cooler Master really needed something that can have the best of both worlds. But CM Storm Alcor was light, a pro in itself wasn't really pushed ahead.
