Kingston HyperX Cloud gaming headset review

Rating: 9.5.

Kingston’s reputation as a maker of storage solutions is well cemented at this point – they have been making memory modules, flash drives and solid state drives for years now. Today however we look at something new from the company after a partnership with QPAD. The resulting amalgamation of influences has produced a smart looking piece of kit, known as the HyperX Cloud gaming headset. It has a stitched leather headband and memory foam earcups … all built around a pair of 53mm drivers.
