Review: Affordable gaming headset
Following up on the Sonuz headset, the gaming face of Cooler Master, CM Storm, launched a new headset dubbed the Ceres 400. Ceres is the Roman goddess of agriculture (those lengthy Caesar sessions have finally started paying off), while 400 stands for 40mm drivers sitting inside the headset.
The company once again aimed for a lightweight and multi-purpose gaming headset for use at home and on the go. CM Storm did not strap the Ceres 400 with a removable mic like they did with the Sonuz but the Ceres 400 is some 15 to 20 euro cheaper, so it somewhat evens out. So, let’s see whether the Ceres yields quality results.
- Driver diameter: ?40mm x 7.5 mm(H)
- Frequency range: 20 - 20,000 Hz
- Impedance: 32 ?
- Sensitivities (@1kHz): 108 dB ± 4 dB
- Input: 100mW
- Connector: 3.5 mm headphone jack
- Inner Ear Cup Diameter: 90.0 mm
- Cable Length: 250cm
- Directivity: Omni-Directional
- Frequency range: 100-10,000 Hz
- Sensitivities (@1kHz): -30 dB ± 3 dB (0dB=1V/pa.1KHz)
- Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 50dB
Naturally, there's no need for installation - as long as a device has a 3.5mm audio out, you're good to go.
