I got these headphones as soon as they appeared on newegg several months ago. It's hard to ask for more out of headphones. These are truly enthusiast-quality whether you're gaming, watching movies, or listening to music. They're also very well built and quite large, but because they're circumaural, they're extremely comfortable. You can almost forget you're wearing them!
I'm glad they included two sets of ear pads. They're both extremely comfortable - the foam ones are a little lighter while the leatherette ones block out more external sound. Keep in mind these are not noise-cancelling headphones: they aren't advertised as so but some still make the assumption. They don't generate an "antinoise" frequency. They're just noise isolating, as in they are circumaural and seal around your ears well, blocking out ambient sounds to some extent. They're not bad at noise isolation, but not very good either.
The sound quality produced by these headphones is excellent. The bass is MUCH better than I expected, and you can adjust the rear, front, master, center, and bass via software or the extremely convenient control console. Speaking of convenient, they also provide 3.5mm audio jacks and dual USB ports so you can use whichever you want. Keep in mind that the control console can only be used in USB mode.
The software is as good as I expected it to be, after looking at CM Storm mice. You can adjust every speaker and sample rate, microphone in/out volume, it has an equalizer with presets, environment effects, bass cutoff, and it even has virtual 7.1 surround support (as well as 4.1/quadrophonic, 2.1/stereo, and mono). It even has a voice changer!
If you're a gamer and you want some high quality headphones, the Storm Sirus is an excellent choice. Don't bother with cheap headphones - I had such a pair (Creative Fatality), and it was uncomfortable beyond belief. I was originally going to replace them with the Logitech G35, but after reading about all of the compatibility issues, I waited for the Storm Sirus which has no compatibility issues at all on PC. You can't use the Storm Sirus on consoles, but why bother with consoles anyway? And contrary to popular belief, there are no mic sensitivity problems in USB mode at least for me. So I have no regrets are complaints about the Storm Sirus. One wishlist would be native 7.1 support and larger drivers, but I can live without them.
