Speakers work well for general listening, but when you need to hear sound detail there's no match for good headphones. Taking things to the next level, Cooler Master offers gamers and audio enthusiasts the best of both worlds with their CM Storm Sonuz wired gaming headset, model SGH-4010-KGTA1. Priced around $69, Sonuz delivers smooth analog sound over extra-large 53mm drivers. In this article Benchmark Reviews will test the CM Storm Sonuz headset for range, sensitivity, comfort, and functionality.

Cooler Master designed Sonuz to deliver big sound from its (relatively) large 2.1" drivers, boasting a low 10Hz bass and 20,000Hz treble range. Even the microphone has solid characteristics, picking up everything from 100-10,000Hz with 58dB SNR. Designed for analog connections, Sonuz is compatible with any device or computer system that offers a 3.5mm audio jack.
