Many will know Kingston as the maker of high performance RAM or memory for computers. However, their HyperX range of gaming headsets have quite a following amongst the gaming community too – notably the Hyper X Cloud and Cloud II.
Arriving in our office is the latest HyperX headset. The new HyperX Cloud Revolver isn’t so much a continuation of the Cloud line as it is a new entry in the HyperX family. Unlike the souped-up Cloud II, the Cloud Revolver is an analog base model without the digital (USB) interface that the other two models come with.
Connecting the Cloud Revolver is by means of a 3.5mm audio plug to your console, PC, smartphones, tablets or any device with a compatible jack. I’m still in the midst of testing the headset, but the most immediate impact it had on me was how incredibly comfortable it felt on my head (and ears). My full thoughts on this headset soon.
