Goddess of… Agriculture?

It was only very recently that we reviewed Cooler Master’s CM Storm Sonuz gaming headset and for the most part, we found the headset to be quite good. With its respectable performance and a budget friendly price tag, the Sonuz brought excellent gaming audio to gamers who didn’t want to spend a truckload of money for a gaming headset. That said, despite the fact that the Sonuz is already coming in at a relatively inexpensive pricetag, $70 is still out of reach for a lot of gamers out there and with Cooler Master fervently pushing their CM Storm brand, a more budget oriented headset is definitely needed for the holiday lineup.

This is why today we’ll be reviewing the new CM Storm Ceres-400 gaming headset, which will be Cooler Master’s solution for the budget gamer. For those wondering why the headset is named after the mythical Roman goddess of agriculture, we have no idea either, but a glance at the Ceres’ spec sheet reveals that the new headset isn’t going to be carrying anything too godly. We’ve got the fairly standard 40mm drivers, a noise cancellation microphone, and a closed ear design, which isn’t anything we haven’t seen before, but with this new headset coming in at a $50 pricetag, (~$20 lower than the Sonuz) there isn’t too much to complain about either.

Let’s take a closer look.
