Cooler Master has this week introduced its newest gaming-oriented headset, the CM Storm Pulse-R.
Pulse-R is hailed by the company as “the first modular headset that allows gamers to represent and brand their team in the growing e-Sports world,” while also “providing powerful sound to keep gamers immersed in the action.“
Perhaps the Pulse-R’s most distinguishing feature is its pair of removable laser-etched aluminum ear plates. These ear plates are customizable and feature distinctive and stylish white LED lighting effects. CM Storm’s idea is that e-Sports teams can emblazon their logos on these ear plates, using the power of bling to both represent to the max and to intimidate their hapless opponents into submission.
But don’t make the mistake in thinking that the Pulse-R is all about catching the eye (which it does with its rather distinctive styling). This is a gaming headset after all. As such, it’s equipped with 42mm stereo drivers which, Cooler Master says, deliver “thumping sound and astonishing clarity.” It also has a detachable microphone arm equipped with a noise-cancelling pick-up for the best possible in-game comms quality. Plus, the Pulse-R also features inline volume and mic on/off controls, so it scores high on the convenience scale as well.
Cooler Master says its Pulse-R is now shipping to e-tail channels with an MSRP of $89.99, although both price and availability might vary according to region.
