The HyperX Cloud Flight promises all the comfort and immersive audio of the original cloud headset but with gaming grade wireless connectivity and 30 hour battery life. Is the Cloud Flight worth £139.99 and could it be the must have wireless headset of 2018?

Pricing: We now know that the HyperX Cloud flight has a MSRP of £139.99. To be honest this is a little more than I was expecting but it is priced similarly to other wireless gaming headsets. I think that due to the build quality, how comfortable it is to wear, the longevity of the battery and the great sound quality you do get your moneys worth.
