Built for gaming enthusiasts and audiophiles alike, the CM Storm Sirus 5.1 Surround Sound Headset creates an immersive gaming experience with hi-fidelity sounds capes and intensified bass.
Sirus produces precise and immaculate sound through its 8 discrete speaker channel pairs of front, rear, center, and sub; delivering accurate real-time 360 degree audio that is fully adjustable through its tactical mixing console. In addition, Sirus is coupled with a uni-directional microphone that minimizes background noise pickup enables crystal clear conversations with teammates and enemy combatants.

I've got Sirus 5.1 on a recommendation and I must say after using other 5.1 and 7.1 headsets these are my favorite thus far.
First, the headsets seem made very robust, they are a bit heavy but very comfortable on the head and around the ears. I can use them for hours during weekend gaming sessions and its like they are not there.
Second, the sound quality. First thing you'll notice most likely is the quality of the subwoofer. Sirus' true 5.1 is great but when you enable virtualized 7.1 it is absolutely amazing in games.
One thing I don't like about Sirus 5.1 is the software that comes with it - it's very confusing.
1. By default the microphone is set to 'monitor' the surrounding causing background noise to be amplified to your headsets. It sounds like listening to old players/amplifiers using analogue headsets. Muting the microphone does not solve this, you have to go to the Sirus CM Storm panel and turn down the Monitor setting for Mic all the way down.
2. The Sirus CM STORM panel has most important features very well hidden. It took me few days to find them. When you toggle between Speakers and Mic on the left you are only presented with few sliders to control the volume. You have to right click on Speakers or Mic icon to find all remaining features (Sample rate, Equalizer, Virtual 7.1, etc).
But the above inconveniences are only software and I can live with them.

I've had the sirus for about half a year now and i am quite happy with it. It looks really cool and is comfortable. The sound quality is good, although some times the sound doesn't work properly as you can only hear it from the other side. The mic is ok nothing special, but gets the job done nicely. Overall The Storm Sirus is a good headset and i would recommend it.
