CM Storm Unleashes Havoc & Pulse-R Gaming Gear
CM Storm has introduced the Havoc gaming mouse and the Pulse-R aluminum gaming headset.
With eight fully programmable buttons, the Havoc comes equipped with an Avago 9800 laser sensor that allows you to adjust accordingly to the DPI level you require, with 8200dpi being the maximum you can adjust to. Enveloped in a durable, rubber coating, its 128KB onboard memory lets you store up to four macros and five profiles, so you go to LAN parties without having to input your configurations all the time. It also incorporates Japanese Omron micro switches that have a lifespan of 5,000,000 clicks, and comes with a 1.8m durable mouse cord.
Fitted with custom 42mm drivers, the Pulse-R is a modular gaming headset that features a detachable microphone arm with a noise-canceling microphone that glows white in the dark, as well as a convenient in-line remote that lets you adjust volume or mute your mic by sliding a switch. The lightweight aluminum headband is adjustable, while the cushioned ear cups help you battle comfortably through your gaming sessions.
On top of the luminous microphone, the headset additionally sports white-illuminated grooves within the ear cups while you game. The laser-etched aluminum plates along the side of the headset can also be removed and customized.
The Pulse-R is currently available for US$89.99. Pricing and availability of the Havoc will be released soon.
