Kingston has really made its mark on the gaming headset world with its HyperX Cloud and Cloud II headsets, the Cloud II even won one of our 2015 KitGuru awards. However, this week, Kingston is expanding its line with the new Cloud Revolver headset, featuring a “studio grade” sound stage and new 50mm directional drivers for better audio precision.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver uses the brand’s signature red memory foam and premium leatherette on the ear cups and head band to provide excellent comfort and quality for long hours of gameplay like its Cloud and Cloud II predecessors. The steel frame suspension design provides long-lasting durability and stability while the noise cancelling microphone returns and is detachable.
Much like the HyperX Cloud II, Kingston’s USB extension box returns to give users easier access to the headphone/microphone port. Finally, the acoustic chamber has been redesigned with vents to allow for a more ‘open back’ headphone sound with a wider sound stage.
The headset launches with a $120 price tag and will begin shipping in May.
KitGuru Says: I used a HyperX Cloud II headset for most of last year so it will be great to see if Kingston’s new Cloud Revolver lives up to its predecessor. Are any of you currently in the market for a new gaming headset? What are you thinking of going with?
