HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Review
The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core headset comes with huge cushioned ear pads, and great sound quality.
The headphones are wired some come with a 3.5mm cable, allowing me to connect to my laptop. Compared to Bluetooth headphones, I found this kind of connection best and didn’t have any issues. There was no lag and drivers installed as soon as the USB cable was plugged in. The Cloud Stinger Core is multi-console compatible and has convenient audio controls directly on the cable.
Turning on the Cloud Stinger Core starts that light show through the logo. The controls for the listening and mic volume are all in the right place and feels incredibly intuitive. There is an LED on the mic and the volume wheel works really well. Soft ear cushions provide a comfortable fit, and the flexible mic can be positioned just as you like.
The sound quality was excellent, those drivers really pump out the sound. The noise blocking pads are awesome, and keep all the music in and all the background sounds out. They feel really comfortable on the head and I have worn them for 7 hours or so in one sitting.
Voices are incredibly crisp and action sequences explode inside my head. The omnidirectional microphone is easy to use, and when doing Skype calls with France, people had no problem hearing me at all. Cloud Stinger Core’s 40mm directional drivers and closed-cup design help block out distractions to keep you in the game.
