Kingston HyperX Cloud Headset Review

Posted September 11, 2014 by Kenny in PC Audio


Hardware: ,
Manufacturer: ,
Price at time of Review: $89.99 on Newegg.com


Aesthetically Pleasing, Comfortable, Great Listening experience.


Distortion with Microphone makes for poor audio recording, bass response could be better
At the price point of $89.99 we feel that the HyperX Cloud is a great value for the money and with the abundance of accessories included its a hard deal to pass up. While this isn't something I would use to replace an audiophile headset, this serves as a great peripheral for the average gamer and music listener.

Headsets are practically a dime a dozen in today’s market. With the large variety available on the net, it makes it tough for us to filter out the good ones from the bad ones. As PC enthusiasts we love our games and our music. We want to blast our ears without waking up the neighbors or maybe our significant other sitting next to us. Today we will be adding more choices to the mix by introducing a new headset from Kingston, called the HyperX Cloud.

Kingston has been a name we have come to know in the PC industry, especially with system memory products. However, with the growing number of PC peripherals and accessories, it was only a matter of time before Kingston started to tap their brand cache and jump into this arena too. With the e-sports crowd growing in popularity, Kingston saw an opportunity. They created a division called “HyperX.” Under the HyperX branding, Kingston is now developing accessories and peripherals to feed this growing group. This new HyperX Cloud Headset is one of those products.

Let’s put it to the test and see how well it holds up against the competition.
