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.

Its 80 Plus Bronze rated and it uses cheap 85c Chinese Capacitors inside - worth the £65 ?

    Wow these look great, very nicely designed. look more like proper audio headphones, rather than kiddie gaming phones with flashing lights everywhere.

    Rebranded Qpad QH-90, which is in turn a rebranded Takstar Pro 80 with a mic, which is a big reason why they’re so good. Ordered one of these the other day to replace my Steelseries Siberia V2.
