CM Storm Ceres 500 Gaming Headset Review

2014 seems to be a good year for both PC gaming and console gaming. With so many different games being launched, one of the universal things every gamer needs is a great gaming headset. We need something we can wear for hours comfortably without any issues. Some of us also run into issues of having multiple systems and would love to use the same headset for both. Well it looks like Cooler Master made that headset and called the CM Storm Ceres 500. The CM Storm Ceres 500 is supposed to work on PC/PS3/PS4 and Xbox. You are also supposed to be able to have it hooked up to 2 different systems at the same time and with a flip of the switch go from one system to the other. Now lets see if you will make the switch to the CM Storm Ceres 500.

Special thanks to Cooler Master for sending us over the CM Storm Ceres 500 Gaming Headset to review.

The CM Storm Ceres 500 headset comes in a nice retail packaging. It is a glossy box with a picture of the Ceres 500. There is also is a cutout which lets you see part of the headset. On the back of the box it shows the features and some of the attachments of the CM STORM Ceres 500.

Now that we have the CM Storm Ceres 500 out of the packaging you can see there was quite a bit of stuff in the box. We have all the wires for hooking it up to a console, the detachable mic, and of course the CM Storm Ceres 500 headset itself.
