HyperX Cloud Revolver S Gaming Headset Review

Final Thoughts And Conclusion

I have to say that I liked the HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset a lot. It has some features I didn’t care for, but the good far outweighed the bad. I think the $149.99 price tag is pushing the limit a bit high, but the HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset could be very tempting to pick up when on sale or during a promotional period.

The comfort and sound quality of the HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset is excellent. As I  mentioned I like the HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset sound card for gaming a lot especially in Dolby 7.1 mode and I like using my own sound card for music, but like most things things this is a subjective view and your experience may be very different from mine.

I am happy to see that the HyperX team is continually improving their products as I certainly like the HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset over my original HyperX headset at this point. The sound quality and overall build of the HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset is light years beyond the first HyperX headset that I actually own and the biggest differences I can see between the HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset and the newer HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset is the addition of a wider alloy frame and of course the addition of Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound.

The Legit Bottom Line:

The HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset is an excellent headset. The sound quality, ease of use, and the ability to use the provided sound card or your own were huge pluses for me. I think the price is a little high, but hey I’m just a guy who writes reviews.

    I’m curious to know how these stand up to other headsets in the price range – most notably the SteelSeries Artic 7.

      I wanted the Steelseries 7 for my PS4 up until I read that you lose the 7.1 surround effect on the consoles.

      I’m probably going to get this Hypercloud since it doesn’t lose that feature
