The Kingston HyperX Cloud’s packaging feels premium, giving us high hopes for the product itself. Like the fanciest of books and magazines, it combines matt with a gloss finish, making the image of the headset stand out against its stark red and grey background.
Through the styling it’s clear Kingston is marketing this headset at pro gamers and those that might emulate their peripheral choices.
Inside the box everything is packaged neatly with individual components and cables segmented off in their own foam surrounds and plastic protectors.
The Cloud’s accessory haul is pretty impressive. Not only do you get the standard extension leads and splitters for the audio cable(s), but you also get an optional, in-line volume controller, a draw string carry bag, replacement/alternate ear cups, a detachable boom mic and a secondary hardware splitter – if you’d rather not deal with extra cabling.
