In a relatively short space of time, HyperX has come to dominate the gaming headset market. Today, we are looking at the company's most expensive headset to-date – the Cloud Revolver S. It slots in above the original Revolver, with the main difference between the two being the addition of software-free Dolby 7.1 virtual surround, though HyperX has also made a few design tweaks.
The addition of software-free surround is definitely an interesting one, and I certainly have not seen this done before. That being said, the HyperX Cloud Revolver S does make you pay for it, as the headset comes in a penny shy of £140. In this review, we assess the build quality, features and performance of the Revolver S before giving our final verdict.
