If you’re already a proud owner of the Kingston HyperX Cloud Core, then there is very little reason for you to upgrade to the Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver. But for those who want to invest in a new gaming headset, then know that you will get pleasing audio performance, along with the comfort to match the long hours you’ll be spending on playing your favorite videogame titles. However, do take note that this particular headphone does not have 7.1 surround sound or noise cancelling features. Nevertheless, its comfort and overall performance makes for the lack of additional features.
The Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver is Perfect to Wear For Those Long Gaming Sessions
Just like the Cloud Core, the Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver is a pair of headphones that’s on the heavy side of things, albeit slightly. It weighs 375-grams, and you will feel that weight over time, especially when playing for 4-hours straight (or more). It has big earcups, which are to the delight of people who have rather large ears. Hence, you would have no problems whatsoever for the headphone not fitting you well.
It also has a metal band, and it does share some of the highlights found in other parts of the HyperX Cloud Revolver. The highlights on the metal band can be a boon and a bane at the same time. You would not be spending a whole lot of time adjusting the height of the headphones because the unit itself has a self-adjusting band, as well as a steel suspension band that will give you a comfortable fit the minute that you put the device on.
If there is one design flaw, it is still with that metal band as it sticks out just a bit above your head. Hence, if you’re sitting on a chair that has a protruding headrest, then it can be a bit of an annoyance as the chair will keep pushing the steel band, which does make the entire setup uncomfortable instead.
The Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver is a pair of headphones that is marketed towards gamers, and the audio performance shows it. When you play games such as Ratchet & Clank, or Quantum Break, or even Uncharted 4, you will be able to enjoy all the majestic sounds coming straight to your ears. In fact, if there was a drop of a pin within the game, it can clearly be heard. However, this kind of performance is similar to the Kingston HyperX Cloud Core, but just slightly better. Hence, if you already own the Cloud Core, then think about it first before upgrading to the Cloud Revolver.
