HyperX Cloud Revolver

 

The Cloud Revolver is HyperX's gaming headset for those who want an analogue connection and a comfortable design for long gaming sessions.

A well-specced headset that’s overshadowed by its cheaper sibling.

HyperX Cloud Revolver S review

 

All-day comfort and killer sound

Excellent all-around sound ; All-day comfort ; Refined build and design

Finicky mic positioning ; Cable may be too long

The HyperX Cloud Revolver S headset performs as admirably outside of games as it does in them. With a great build and comfort, it’s easily a headset worth having.

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 Gaming Headset Review

 

I had a chance to review most of the HyperX headsets and each of them was always better. HyperX cares to improve its products and this time we will see one more headset but somehow exceptional in its design and features. In this review we will present...

HyperX Cloud Revolver S is just a perfect gaming headset which is also great for all who are not playing games often but still wish to experience great sound while watching movies or listening to the favourite audio files.

HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset Review

 

In a relatively short space of time, HyperX has come to dominate the gaming headset market. Today, w HyperX have launched their top-of-the-line surround-sound headset, but is it worth £139.99?

Well-built.

Surround-sound is far too

While I enjoyed my time with the Revolver S when using it in stereo mode, the original Revolver seems like a much better bet considering its £50 cheaper.

HyperX Cloud Revolver Review

 

How does the new HyperX headset stack up against the competition?

The headband noise reverberation is certainly a concern but, in reality, so long as you don't have annoying friends that go round twanging it at every opportunity, or wear a hoodie while you game, it's unlikely to be a major issue. Similarly,...

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...
