When 2014 rolled around, the first question I asked myself was whether or not I would make a New Year’s Resolution. Resolutions are quite common around the beginning of a year, as leaving the past and looking forward to the future gives people a sense of hope for better things to come. These resolutions can be self-focused or selfless. Goals like losing weight, getting organized, or spending more time with family are quite common. In a study conducted by the University of Scranton, approximately forty-five percent of Americans make New Year Resolutions for themselves. Of those forty-five percent, only eight percent of them actually see the resolution go through. There are different stances of why people fail at keeping their resolutions, but one prevalent idea is that people often set unspecific or unattainable goals. Rather than saying that they “commit to exercising for half an hour at least every other day”, they put vague sentences out like “losing weight”. In essence, they list out the big things they want to see, but they forget about the little details that come with it. You can almost say it is the little things that make the big difference. And this brings me to the dilemma of the Cooler Master Ceres 500. The last Cooler Master headset we reviewed, the CM Storm Ceres 400, was generally an acceptable product. While it did not blow our minds or our ears off, it was not very heavy on the wallet, and the performance was as expected with the price. On the other hand, there were small details that made the Ceres 400 almost undesirable. Now that Cooler Master has shipped us their Ceres 500, we can pose one question: Is this better than the last model, or does it too forget the small things that matter? Hopefully, we will answer this and other questions in today’s review.
