Cooler Master Storm Sonuz tested - Sonuz

Review: All in one headset with 53mm drivers

The soft earpads are 9.7cm in diameter, whereas the plastic bracket measures about 10cm in diameter. The headband is slightly curved, which makes the Sonuz fit comfortably and stay in place in those long sessions. Weighing in at about 380 grams, it isn't quite the lightest headset around, but it is lighter than many competing products. For instance, the Sirus weighs about 400 grams. Naturally, there's no need for installation - as long as a device has a 3.5mm audio out, you're good to go.

The earpads are filled with soft foam and are quite comfortable. We liked how the earpads are designed, because we didn't sweat much, but unfortunately, they provided little to none outside noise isolation. Note that the pads are removable, in case you want to wash them.

The plastic part that covers the driver is higher in the center than at the edges.

Users will feel slight pressure on the central part of the outer ear once they put the headset on, courtesy of the elevated plastic part. This made it clear why Cooler Master used double foam pads.

The picture below hints at the elevated part - notice that the fabric is stretched at the center.

The speakers are attached to the headband at the center, so they'll fit in an instant. The speaker can be turned in all directions, whereas the traditional design preferred thinner designs restricted two movement in two directions only.

Sonuz looks even bigger when put on due to the way how the speakers are attached to the headband. Note that they definitely won't fall of easily.

Users can extend the headband by almost 4cm on each side, picture below. The metal rail also adds to the  military style.
