Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver S review

 

Excellent sound quality ; Extremely comfortable ; No extra software needed ; Easy access controls ; Works with virtually any gaming device

Virtual surround limited to USB devices ; Mic performance is a bit flat

We’re impressed with Kingston’s latest effort. By packing features normally relegated to software into the hardware itself, and including several connection types, the Cloud Revolver S is versatile, making its superb sound quality available for just...

HyperX Cloud Revolver S review: A costly improvement to the original Cloud Revolver headset

 

The Cloud Revolver S brings new EQ options and better in-line controls to last year's Cloud Revolver model, but with the highest price tag we've seen to date on a HyperX headset.

Still has the Cloud line's signature audio ; New EQ settings built into the control box ; Better noise cancellation in the microphone

Metal band still reverberates when touched ; 7.1 performance isn't up to par with competitors ; Overly expensive when compared feature-to-feature with competitors

The end result: It’s hard to say whether the Cloud Revolver S is worth it. HyperX made its name off affordable peripherals, but at $150 the Revolver S is one of the most expensive wired headsets on the market. Logitech’s G633, , SteelSeries’s Arctis...

HyperX Cloud Revolver S review: HyperX Cloud Revolver S review: Gaming audio on cloud nine

 

HyperX's latest headset is pure comfort, offering world-first plug-and-play Dolby 7.1 audio. But the damn microphone kept getting in the way.

The Cloud Revolver S is unfairly, obscenely comfortable. It's like wearing two sound pillows on your face.

Missing the on-ear buttons of a lot of other headsets makes mid-game muting and volume tweaks a bit of a pain.

Some design choices get in the way of function, but for comfort and sound quality the Cloud Revolver S is sunshine on a rainy day.

HyperX Cloud Revolver S review: Huge sound in a comfortable package

 

The HyperX Cloud Revolver S gaming headphones have some fantastic sound to go along with a good design. Read more in this full review.

If you’re looking for a new pair of gaming headphones that don’t slouch outside of gaming, the HyperX Cloud Revolver S should be on your list. They’re comfortable, versatile, and put out a huge sound at a good price.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver S Review

 

Delivering an overall unimpressive performance, the Kingston Cloud Revolver S only really stood out by having a somewhat high price tag, especially...

The is a decent headset, though it is far from our favorites. We weren't really fans of the odd headband auto-adjust system and the slightly higher than expected price tag preclude it from an award.

HyperX Cloud Revolver S Review

 

The HyperX Cloud Revolver S is an impressive iteration on one of the better gaming headsets around. It's comfortable enough to wear for hours on end, durable enough to survive trips to tournaments, and versatile enough to be used with your PC, console...

Very comfortable ; Clear microphone ; Strong overall sound quality ; Works well with both PCs and consoles

So-so surround sound ; A bit pricey

The HyperX Cloud Revolver S is a comfortable, durable and versatile gaming headset, though its surround sound offers mixed results.

HyperX Cloud Revolver Review

 

As a headset built for competitive gamers, the $120 HyperX Cloud Revolver absolutely hits the mark. Its rich, directionally accurate audio makes it easy to pinpoint enemies, and its cozy ear cups and suspension-frame design make it comfy enough to wear...

Crisp, immersive audio ; Comfy ear cups ; Automatically adjusts to your head ; Durable steel frame

No virtual 7.1 surround sound ; Relatively pricey

The HyperX Cloud Revolver offers rich audio within a comfy, durable design, but it lacks some key features for a $120 gaming headset.
