Smartphones are essentially a part of our daily lives now and just as we expect these phones to perform some tasks that were once just exclusively for computers, we have also come to expect computers to perform some tasks that were once limited to phones.

There are headsets designed for use in an office setting and there are headsets designed for laptop use but when it comes to headsets designed for online and LAN gaming, manufacturers looked at the demands of e-Sports athletes and enthusiasts and addressed their concerns.  Since accuracy is important in competitive gaming, it is also expected that the headsets produce in-game sounds accurately and augment the overall experience.  CM Storm, as one of the leading brand names in eSports, already has the award winning Sirus and Sonuz headsets in their lineup but is expanding their line further with the release of the Ceres 400 headset, a lightweight and affordable alternative for users on a budget, promised to live up to demanding gamer requirements.
