Kingston HyperX Cloud Headset Review

The packaging for the Cloud is very good indeed. Thick cardboard, rather than the easily creased stiff paper option, gives a great sense of quality. The box art loudly proclaims the features and demonstrates the design, whilst also playing off the brand recognition of the HyperX name.

Inside is another box with an embossed chrome logo. Although it would be easy to bemoan the waste of the worlds resources by utilising so much packaging, the sense of a quality product that you get is undeniable. Lifting the lid from that and we get our first look at the Cloud headset itself. Everything is neatly packaged and has its own place. Even the "what do we do with metres of cable" problem that can seem insurmountable in other packaging styles is solved deftly with the use of a cardboard storage section below the headset.

As you would expect with so many places to plug the Cloud into, there is a wealth of cables to ensure it fits into anything from a high-end sound card to the MP3 player of your choice.

Before we move onto the headset itself, there is an optional inline remote which handles all your microphone muting and volume control needs. Unlike so many of these that we've reviewed the Kingston HyperX one really feels like a quality item. No cheap plastic scratchiness here.

That's the first time I've seen 10's across the board in a LONG time - I'm going to buy one of these next pay-day - OC3D doesn't give 10's unless it's truly extraordinary! Great review Quote
