Cooler Master CM Storm Pulse-R Headset Review: A Bit Rusty
It seems that I went against the grain in my approach to the Aluminium series of reviews, and saved the worst for last. That is a dreary way to start of a review I admit, but my usage of the Cooler Master Pulse-R Aluminium Gaming headset has been quite unpleasant in many ways relating to producing convincing audio fidelity, being plagued by issues of build quality and omissions that hamper this device from being anything above average. It’s really sad that the build quality and performance from the two other Aluminium series peripherals I’ve reviewed are found to be a bit on the rusty side here, and in grave need of some R&D oiling to be implemented.
That being said, there are some saving graces that this headset does achieve and these are found in the microphone, aesthetic and comfort factor, however these are not important enough areas that will make you stare forlornly at the R850 (~$83) that used to be in your bank account. I’d say that for gaming with little in-game speech (like multiplayer FPS or RTS games) these headsets will be most appreciated, but for any other audio task they fall short. Now I know this is where I would present an unboxing video where myself and Caz fumble around with a product, but unfortunately a combination of power issues and hubris saw to destroying that endeavour. Pro-Tip: never cut a video to copy while in electricity Load-Shedding season, bad things happen to good people. So with that, a written account of the unboxing and specifications will be provided in the next section.
