Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger


The HyperX Cloud Stinger is one of the most capable wired gaming headsets you can buy for under $50.

Comfortable. Strong audio performance for the price. Good microphone.

Weak in extreme low and high frequencies.

The Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger is an affordable wireless headset that offers very satisfying performance for the price. It's one of the best sub-$50 headsets out there, and feels very comfortable on the head. If you can spare an additional $20, you...

HyperX Cloud Stinger review: Solid entry-level audio is cheaper than ever


HyperX might have just undercut its widely acclaimed $100 Cloud headset with this $50 budget entry.

Solid, mid-heavy sound ; HyperX finally adds volume/mic controls on the headset itself ; Extremely inexpensive

Audio not as rich as the more expensive HyperX Cloud ; Weak microphone ; Comfy, but a bit cheap feeling

You’ve probably noticed the same refrain throughout this review: “The Cloud Stinger is good, .” And that’s true. These cans won’t stand up next to competitors two or three times the price, either in sound or in comfort. Hell, the Stinger doesn’t even...

HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless review


The Cloud Stinger Core is a solid wireless gaming headset for under $100

Solid gaming performance ; USB Type-C charging ; Comfortable ear cups ; Seamless wireless connectivity

Cheap, plastic design ; Tough to adjust fit ; No customization

The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless offers great gaming performance, seamless wireless and comfortable earpads for the price, but it’s plagued with a cheap design.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Review


The HyperX Cloud Stinger are wired entry-level gaming headphones. Although their plastic frame is bulky, they're fairly lightweight for over-ears and should be c...

Impressive boom microphone. Comfortable design.

Very limited control scheme. Bulky and plasticky build. Inconsistent bass and treble delivery that significantly varies across users.

The HyperX Cloud Stinger are disappointing for mixed-use. These entry-level headphones are designed for gaming and it shows in their specs. They don't reduce background noise well, making them ill-suited for listening to audio in loud environments like...

HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset


When you think of gaming headsets, inexpensive doesn't figure into the equation. If something is cheap, it usually means poor quality. This doesn't need to be the case, though. Enter Kingston's HyperX Cloud Stinger. This $50 headset promises to deliver...

Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger Review (Page 1 of 4)


A few weeks back, I was driving home after a long day at work. I was waiting in a left turn lane, when I peered over my shoulder and spotted a girl singing and dancing in her car while waiting at the red light. I felt like I knew who she was, but I...

If I could summarize the Kingston HyperX Cloud headsets we have reviewed previously, it could be done in three points. First is good build quality. Second is a comfortable fit, no matter the weight or size. Third is solid audio performance....

Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger Review: Clouded Sound


For $50, you can't expect the moon and stars in a gaming headset; you just want something competent and comfortable. In those respects, the Cloud Stinger delivers. The gaming and music performance won't leave you in aural awe, but they're clear and...

Inexpensive ; Comfortable ; Smooth setup

So-so audio ; No extra features ; Unimpressive mic

The Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger is a mildly stylish and extremely comfortable gaming headset, but the audio is nothing special.

HyperX Cloud Stinger


The Cloud Stinger is HyperX's newest addition to its headset line, priced at the rather cheap £49.99. The Stinger fuses an attractive design with easy-to-use adjustment features, and is super-comfortable to wear for long gaming sessions.

A fantastic budget headset that delivers great audio quality and a comfortable design.
