Headsets are a must if you are the kind of person that likes to really get into your environment. Be it gaming, music, etc., being immersed fully in it is the job of your headset. If your headset lacks quality your overall experience will suffer. Back in the day quality headsets were both expensive and bulky. Things have changed as of late with headsets getting lighter and cheaper while maintaining or improving on sound quality. Cooler Master’s CM Storm division is no stranger to the gaming headset market having previously released their Sirus 5.1 and Sonuz headsets. They’ve finally entered the entry-level headset market with their Ceres-400 headset. This headset retails for $49.99 w/ free shipping and is backed by a two year warranty.
