This week I had the pleasure to test out the new HyperX CloudX™ Pro Gaming Headset! This product is the latest in the HyperX line of amazing headsets.
When I first opened the box of the HyperX CloudX™ Pro Gaming Headset I was instantly impressed. I know it sounds cliche, but you get what you pay for. The packaging alone on this headset was spectacular. Everything was very snugly packaged, making it nearly impossible for the premium product to be damaged. The headset was packaged in a hard shell zipper case which was molded to fit the headset in tightly, making it ideal for travel. The headset also comes with a spare set of ear cups, a PC extension cable, and a detachable microphone.
A big problem that constantly minimizes my gaming time is my sensitive ears. After an hour or two of wearing headphones my ears will usually start to hurt, causing me to cut my sessions short. The foam padding on a typical headset will start to push against my earlobes, causing pain overtime. These headphones made this problem nonexistent. The memory foam around the ear cups is amazing! They stay cool and don’t squeeze my ear into submission, making this a must have for Gamers with sensitive ears.
This microphone has built in in-line audio controls. This feature is great for people who have friends over or have animals. I constantly find myself having to take off my headset to keep track of my dogs or talk to my girlfriend in between games. Everyone knows how frustrating it can be to have someone talking to you mid game when you can’t hear what they’re saying. These controls make that another nonissue!
Finally, we get to talk about sound quality! These headphones have a great crisp sound. Once again the cliche line comes to mind, you get what you pay for. The sound is crisp, which is very important when playing any competitive game. When testing headphones I always like to listen to music to see how it sounds, and these passed the test. The microphone has very good quality as well. I was a little skeptical because I have never used a headset with a detachable microphone, but it was surprisingly clear.
