CM Storm Sonuz Headset Review

Testing the Sonuz
Hardware Secrets Bronze Award

Those who pick the Sonuz as their headset of choice know that they will be forsaking the 5.1 soundtrack on the games they play. An FPS title such as Battlefield 3 uses the 5.1 mix and sound effects to immerse the player in the action. The CM Storm headset only reproduces 2.0 stereo sound, which means that users who want to watch DVDs and Blu-Rays will also forsake the multichannel sound mixes. That being said, how did the Sonuz fare?

We played Battlefield 3 in 2.0 mode, and the response was precise and powerful. Those 53 mm drives are way bigger than most drives found in similar models on the market (they range from 30 mm to 40 mm), so the bass was meaty. But don’t forget to configure the setting of any game to a 2.0 sound mix (if available) to avoid cacophony. Dialogue tracks on TV shows, movies and games sounded crisp.

Since music is natively a two-channel medium, music listening with the Sonuz was excellent, and the performance was great, ranging from YouTube videos to CDs. With drives that big and some tweaking on the audio controller mixer, the headset was great to listen to different beat-driven styles like hip-hop and house or techno.
