HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset Review


HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset

Back in 2014, the HyperX Cloud gaming headset launched to rave reviews including our own and quickly became a big hit amongst gamers around the world across all platforms. This level of success was unprecedented for a high-end gaming headset, yet its good sound quality, outstanding construction, and comfortable design, easily made it the best value competitive gaming headset despite the price. Building on the tremendous success of the Cloud is an all new premium competition gaming headset from HyperX called the Cloud Revolver.HyperX Cloud Revolver

Unlike the Cloud which is a rebranded Qpad QH-90, the HyperX Cloud Revolver is an all-new original design built from the ground up. Like the Cloud, the Cloud Revolver features premium memory foam padding, a detachable microphone, and heavy reliance on metal construction. New to the Revolver is a self-adjusting suspension headband and 50mm drivers. The Cloud Revolver is backed by a 2-year warranty and is available on Amazon for $110.71.
