Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset Overview
Taking a first look at the HyperX Cloud Revolver headset one of the things I noticed is that the headset cannot be collapsed in to be folded up and it does not have a lay-flat design like many of the headsets we’ve reviewed lately. This is because the headset is mostly made of metal with the entire frame being a single metal piece. This also makes the Cloud Revolver a larger headset, which some will like and others looking for a smaller, lighter headset probably will not.
Since the entire frame is a single piece Kingston makes use of a flexible suspended headband. The headband will adjust to hit your head perfectly. The headband is made of padded, which means the headset should be pretty comfortable.
Moving down the headset to the earcups on each side you have a red HyperX logo which looks pretty cool. Inside each earcup you have dynamic 50mm neodymium drivers. The actual earcups are quite big and are meant to sit over your ears. The earcups feature the signature “HyperX” memory foam with a premium leatherette finish. I loved the memory foam on the Cloud II so these should be just as comfortable.
Coming out of the left earcup your have the 3.5mm cable. This is a combination cable, so if you are using a mobile device or a laptop with a combo port you will still be able to use the microphone on the headset. The microphone on the headset is removable so if you don’t plan on using it you can take it out. The microphone when installed is adjustable as it can be bent into the best location for you. I really like the idea of a detachable microphone, no one wants a big microphone in the way when they just want to listen to music.
