The HyperX Cloud headset really punches above its weight in terms of audio quality, comfort and durability and makes an ideal companion if you love playing games.

Anyone’s who’s into online gaming – whether it’s Fortnite or Call of Duty – will identify the value of a good headset and the HyperX Cloud headset has got everything you need to keep you immersed in the game.

The HyperX Cloud headset ticks all the boxes when it comes to audio quality, durability and comfort.

It has a sturdy aluminium frame along with padded memory foam cushions which are comfortable even for the longest gaming sessions.

The headset even has a two year warranty.

The HyperX Cloud headset allows users to enjoy their games without disturbing their household and to also communicate with your fellow online players.

Also at your fingertips are convenient in-line controls so you can mute your microphone or adjust the audio.

The noise cancelling microphone is also detachable for those times when you just want to enjoy a game on your own or just use it to listen to music.

For our review, we tested out the PS4 version of the HyperX Cloud headset which had the distinct blue aluminium frame and blue stitching on the headband as well as the distinctive PlayStation symbol above each year cup.

The headset was comfortable to wear thanks to an easy adjustment and the padding on both the ear cups and on the headband.

They only weigh 337g with the microphone and 325g without.

We connected the cord to our PS4 controller to be able to hear the in-game audio and also to hear and speak to our online teammates.

Under the hood are 53mm drivers with neodymium magnets which deliver impressive sound quality with clear crisp audio and enhanced bass.

It also sounded great when we were listening to our music.

And with the pro-gaming optimised closed cup design you also get passive noise cancellation as well.

The HyperX Cloud headset also has versions for PC, Xbox One, Xbox One S and Mac.

They are available now and priced at hundred $129.

They are affordably priced it would have been nice to have a case or carry bag to store them in between gaming sessions.

We’re sure customers would have been willing to pay a few extra dollars to have that included in the box.
