We usually do not use expanded theme park analogies to explain PC peripherals,but not often has a headset at any time taken us on a roller-coaster trip just like this one do.The CM MasterPulse’s headsets leading trick,a set of neodymium-magnet positioned plates,which click on to the outside of each one ear cup, is a new knowledge.Adequately installed,the plates infer a closed back style; taken out, the headset switches to a semi-open configuration, and triggers CM Bass FX technology for a far richer sound. Two unique sounds in one headset,with a totally analog method of converting from one to the other.Possibly this is a task of audio engineering, or a specific thing we definitely do not wish to be riding.
Cooler Master has absolutely got the building right-getting the CM MasterPulse headset sitting on your
head is a remarkable enjoyable experience.The ear pads are nice, smooth, and easily cover the largest ears and
the oddest-shaped skulls, despite the rigid, fixed structure of the headband.
Floating extra padding, with 5 specific squishy nodules, really does a great job of
securing the headset to your head without any notable pressure, and the lightweight aluminum construction only
helps lengthy wearing.The only way these aren’t going to sit pleasantly is if you
prefer the half-on,half-off configuration.
We really should mention the cable at this point,which is a little frustrating.Not for its
in-line mic and analog volume level control,even though relegating the mic to a tiny pinprick
on the top of the cable module does, for all the appropriate high-quality of voice capture,
make it seem like a enormous afterthought.And certainly not for its color-a pleasing deeply red-or its coating;slightly rubbery and pretty good at not transferring actual physical noise into
the headphones.No,it is the length, or absence of it. A shade below four ft,or slightly
more if you use the integrated four-pole to 2x three-pole adapter, just is not enough for
nearly all desktop COMPUTER SYSTEM configurations.It’s hardly enough to use this CM headset connected up to a
mobile phone in your pocket.

At initial listen,all is a little muddy; there is no impressive high point to the sound level.But then you
settle in for the journey, and things aren’t very “scary”, as they first looked like.
Long-term listening isn’t unpleasant, it’s almost enjoyable.There is a bouncy quality to
the plate-clad sound, at least. It’s rich enough in bass to match gaming quite well,
if not flat enough for audiophile songs listeners, and it goes plenty noisy without
any sort of noticeable distortion.
If,nevertheless, you can get a cut-price ticket-we’ve noticed the CM MasterPulse headset listed by major merchants as
low as $29.99-then you are going to get a lot of entertaining.
