I am very particular when it comes to sound as I am an audiophile. I always listen to various types of music; from classic to rock and metal. I know what I am talking about when it comes to sound quality.
Now, there are studio headphones that give unparalleled sound quality but I am more into gaming nowadays and I want to have a headset that not only has amazing sound quality but it should also have features that make it a great all-around gaming headset.
I didn’t have a fondness for gaming headsets up until my friend lent me his Kingston HyperX Revolving gaming headset. I was skeptical at first but man, I was instantly blown away by the sound quality that this headset emits.
So in this article, I will talk about the 5 reasons why the HyperX Cloud Revolver should be one of the best gaming headsets today.
1. Sound Quality. I’ve scoured the internet for information about gaming headsets and the HyperX Cloud Revolver is always the one suggest by many pro gamers. Razer was the go-to standard before but most players report Razer’s headsets to be too heavy on the bass. The HyperX Cloud Revolver provides the right amount of bass without drowning the highs and the mids. Furthermore, when I used my Sennheiser headphones, the audio quality is nearly on par with it. Listening to all forms of music genres with the HyperX Cloud Revolver is a great treat. Although the HyperX Cloud Revolver doesn’t come with virtual surround sound, it still is amazing when it comes to positional audio in games.
2. Microphone. The HyperX Cloud Revolver comes with a detachable microphone. This headset comes with two 3.5mm jacks: one for the sound output and one for the microphone. Anyway, the microphone of the HyperX Cloud Revolver has been vastly improved as it doesn’t produce the “nasal” output of Kingston’s previous gaming headsets. The microphone itself is well-built and it looks amazing with an overall black color. The HyperX Cloud Revolver doesn’t come with any software and both the headset and the microphone works right off the bat.
3. Comfort. Comfort is another aspect that gamers should look into when shopping for gaming headsets. Thankfully, the HyperX Cloud Revolver offers not only amazing sound quality but it also offers amazing comfort as well. This headset comes with leather ear cups that is perfect to allow breathing room for your ears for prolonged gaming sessions. It also comes with an adjustable headband that automatically adjusts to fit the contours of your head.
4. Design. The HyperX Cloud Revolver is a “loud” gaming headset, and I am not talking about its sound; I am talking about its design. The moniker for this headset fits the bill perfectly. It’s got a metal support that holds the headset’s component in their place. It’s got an “HX” logo on each ear cups and the overall matte finish of the headset just looks sexy.
5. Durability. I love my Sennheiser headphones mainly because of the sound quality but the durability of it is also top notch. The HyperX Cloud Revolver is also durable as well. By just picking up the headset, you can instantly tell of its durability. My friend and I also did a drop test to see if the headset will hold, and it did (luckily!).
The HyperX Cloud Revolver is indeed one of the best gaming headsets today. It is priced at $100, which is a bit steep for some, but the sound quality as well as the overall design and durability pretty much makes up for the price.
So, if you’re shopping for a great gaming headset, the HyperX Cloud Revolver should definitely be considered.
